Planting Seeds

Recently I've had many teaching opportunities.  I am very thankful for them. God is always faithful to give me a message for each unique group. However, the other morning I woke up discouraged. I'm doing all this work but I see no fruit. So I took my discouraged heart to Jesus. Prayer: Jesus, I do... Continue Reading →

A Coffee Break

I am taking a break from drinking coffee - for a month! So bear with me, my mind is a little fuzzy in the mornings.  Actually, it's a little fuzzy all day! I started cutting down a couple of weeks ago, so I didn't get the crazy headaches.  I am doing this because I've felt... Continue Reading →

Teaching

This week I get to experience the joy and satisfaction of teaching a sewing class for youth.  Our projects will include a bookmark, pillowcase and tote bag.  Two of my students received sewing machines for Christmas so they are very excited to learn more about sewing.

Are you shocked?  My reason is . . . in our country, we have managed to make every holiday have... Continue Reading →

Crime

Recently it seems I have been so close to crime happening.  I had gone to the bank and withdrawn a larger amount of cash than usual, which I needed for something specific. Even the teller was saying, "be careful with that."  Before going home I went to a coffee shop to get my tea supply... Continue Reading →

Bunny Trails

I have noticed in my life and other people's lives that when we are waiting for a big event, we often go down bunny trails. Bunny trails are paths that don't lead to anywhere. It seems in retrospect that it's a waste of time, energy and resources.  This happens to strong Christians too. Why do... Continue Reading →

The Distraction of Devices

Electronic Devices are spellbinding some days. There is work to be done using them. Like typing a blog. But there is also a lot of mind numbing activities as well. I think on the days I'm not exactly excited about my life I spend more time scrolling through social media. The day I wrote this... Continue Reading →
