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...

The Perfect Age

I just read the article "What is the Perfect Age?".  I've actually been thinking about that lately.  On the west coast of the USA people are saying 47 is the perfect age.  Well then I should have a very good year then.  What do you think is the perfect age? God's word to us: I think every... Continue Reading →

Daily Belonging

I haven't done this in a while.  I Just need to talk to you and share all the thoughts that have been going around in my head. I feel so much better when I do.  It helps me remember that you are a good listener and that you care.  Even when it's something trivial like... 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.

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 →

Relationships at Home

It saddens me to see my family members picking on each other. The younger antagonizes the other members of the family, and the older says hurtful things. We have a pause button on the remote and use it all the time when someone wants to say something while we're watching a movie. Last night, one family... Continue Reading →

Good Friends

Jesus, sometimes I don’t feel like I’m enough. My friend thinks I’m a really good friend. She commented that she likes our friendship because it’s a give and take relationship. I feel like I’m only taking. I know I’m not, but do I give enough?  I don’t know. Is it enough that she feels satisfied? ... Continue Reading →
