Through this crisis my prayers have been motivated by my urgent needs and intense emotions. Today I woke up feeling peaceful! It was such a nice change. When we go through a crisis, our relationship with God changes to what is needed for the moment. But when the crisis is over, the relationship needs to... Continue Reading →
I don't know about you, but I'm so done thinking about this mess. I'm done watching the daily numbers go up. I'm tired of trying to wear something on my face that fogs up my glasses when I go shopping. I'm tired of cooking every meal at home. I'm tired of trying to find a quiet place to write when conference calls for work and school video conferencing are going on at the same time in different rooms. So today I put on Christian worship music, using my earbuds to block out all the other conversations.

Sometimes I wait until I'm just so worried sick about an issue before I bring it to God. I finally prayed. Prayer: I... Continue Reading →
Weekly, I drive past a place in the road where my son drove his first car off a 50 foot cliff. Thankfully that afternoon three years ago he survived that crash but his car did not. You see, there was a curve in the road. He continued driving straight and didn't turn with the road.... Continue Reading →
Earlier this year God called me to stop working on our house. Our goal is to move. To do that we need to get this house ready to sell. Sometimes it is so hard when He calls us to stop doing a priority or a goal. I remember another difficult time when I needed to... Continue Reading →
A few days after I posted Our Garden Failed, a friend presented me with a bag of his home grown tomatoes. I was thrilled! Then he told me to go get some tomato plants. This was good advice from my friend. So I got tomatoes, peppers and a zucchini plant. I was going to plant it all... Continue Reading →
I have major control issues. One of those areas is finance. I pay the bills each month. I set up our monthly budget. I have earned the trust of my husband to take care of these matters. This has been my job as manager and administrator of our household. It's rewarding when things are going... Continue Reading →
It's the sad truth, our garden has failed! Of all the plants we planted, only one very lonely corn stalk survived. I'm super bummed. Those little plants we started indoors from seed looked like they would make it. They looked so green and full of life. My worry that the garden pests would eat them... Continue Reading →
