Discouragement

America be strong. Be brave. We are waking up to a new day of possibilities, where yesterday does not apply to tomorrow. Don't go backward. It's like returning to Egypt and to the slavery of the past. I want to point you to freedom once more. Have you gotten lost? Are you discouraged? Let me... Continue Reading →

Praying for your Friend’s Daughters

Daughters are close to every mom's heart. When friends get together, they often share more about what their daughters are up to than talk about their sons. I think this is because the relationship between mother and daughter is wired differently. It's a closer type of relationship. They understand each other on a deeper level.... Continue Reading →

Coming Home from Vacation

Vacations for our family have been our way of spending time with family who have moved away. Every once in a while we will take a 4 day trip up the coast to our favorite coastal town. But generally vacation time is family time. I enjoy this because I miss them so much. I'd rather... Continue Reading →

She’s Growing Up

My daughter is growing up. She just celebrated her 9th birthday. That's halfway to adulthood. And if I remember right from having the boys, the second half goes faster.  Oh Lord, how do I make the most of my time with her?  How do I make sure I impress on her the important things in...

God's word to us: I think every... Continue Reading →

Crunched For Time

It's the end of the week, Lord. I give you this moment. It's not much. For my days have been very busy. And I still need to figure out what we are having tonight for dinner. But I don't want this whole day to go by without giving you my time. For you are important... Continue Reading →

The Quiet after the Storm

I am feeling empty and quiet.  I’ve been busy for months and now those obligations are over. This holiday season I had a house full of activity and when everyone left, it was very quiet. It was good spending time with family. But now I must resume my normal life. Please help me understand why... Continue Reading →

Remembering Him

Here I stand before a new year, oh Lord.  Please let me remember you are close by and I can depend on you for anything that comes up. This morning I’m feeling especially foggy brained because of the anti inflammatory diet I started right after Christmas. When I cut carbs and sugar from my diet... Continue Reading →

No Words Required

You know my thoughts and actions. I’m so glad I don’t have to explain them to you. If I were in a talking mood, you would gladly listen. Today, I’m just not. Know my heart loves you. I just want to be close to you. That is my heart. God’s word to us: Sometimes I... Continue Reading →
