A Different Kind of Easter

A Different Kind of Easter

Often times in elementary school we would be told to bring an item from home. Mine was typically homemade because going out to buy things wasn't happening. I remember one year we were told to bring an Easter basket. My mother is one of those crazy creative people that...

Sparks Fly with Christ

Sparks Fly with Christ

There is a song that says 'sparks fly, it's like electricity, I might die. When I forget how to breathe, you get closer and there's nowhere in this world I'd rather be.' Obviously, I'm not a guy so I can't speak for them, but as a female I can tell you that most of us...

Biblical Relationships

Biblical Relationships

Have you ever looked in Genesis chapter 1 and noticed that God, more than once, calls His creation good? It makes me think that His definition of good and the way I use the word are more than a bit different. Before the fall of man there was perfection so when God...

Does Prayer Change Anything?

Does Prayer Change Anything?

Why bother to pray and trust God if He isn't going to change anything? It's a question I was recently asked and one that sadly I believe many people ask when they are struggling in a situation. If the only reason we pray is to get our wants and desires then isn't our...

Choose Happy

Choose Happy

I recall when I was a child my parents would often tell me that my siblings didn't make me mad, I chose to be mad. All that did was make me even madder. How dare they tell me such utter nonsense!  They must have forgotten that I was the baby of the family and should...

I Can Do All Things

I Can Do All Things

Not too long ago you couldn't go anywhere without seeing or hearing Jeremiah 29:11. It seems the verse has changed and now we are all on a Philippians 4:13 kick. I'm not complaining, I just wish people would use it correctly. I can do all things through Christ which...

What You Date Is What You Marry

What You Date Is What You Marry

While having dinner with some girls from church we were discussing a trend that for the life of me I don't understand. One of the young ladies said she has been in this situation herself and at the time she saw nothing wrong with it. She was speaking of a past...

Feelings are Fleeting

Feelings are Fleeting

My great nephew has been with me this summer and we've had a blast! This week we took a few days and rented an airbnb. When going there I went a way I wouldn't normally go, but the gps said it was the fastest so we took it. On the way home I decided I'd come the same...

Try or Strive

Try or Strive

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Matthew 13:45-46. Can you image selling everything you have for one pearl? This seems pretty...

A Mother’s Heart

A Mother’s Heart

I sat at church today and did the same thing I've done numerous times throughout my life; I watched mothers of all ages go to the front of the building to be recognized for Mother's Day. They're given flowers, plaques, keychains, pictures, cups or some other token of...

Rest

Rest

Lately, the idea of rest has been popping up everywhere. Maybe it's just because it's been on my mind so I'm noticing it more than normal. Either way, it's a popular topic around my house. You all know I'm headed back to Genesis before going anywhere else so have you...

What Jesus Are You Preaching?

What Jesus Are You Preaching?

Walls, abortions, and tacos seem to be in my newsfeed on a daily lately regardless of the social media platform. In all honesty, tacos probably won't be going anywhere soon and I'm ok with that! The other two will be changed to new hot topics soon enough. I typically...

Unseen Productivity

Unseen Productivity

I feel like it's been 5 years since I've posted. It obviously hasn't been that long, but it certainly has been a while. As much as I enjoy writing on here sometime this takes a back burner to life. I've been very productive lately, but I don't have a lot to show for...

My Perspective Brings Thanks

My Perspective Brings Thanks

We all talk about the silver lining in a situation and I'd like to share a little about the last few days with you. Thanksgiving was great and a bit toasty for my liking. By Saturday it was supposed to be 70 degrees. It's November, come on already, bring on the cold....

Unthankful Thanksgiving

Unthankful Thanksgiving

Tis the season...for complaints? Since when did November become the time to be ungrateful? Recently I saw a post that the person wished they could skip Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas. Yes, let's skip being thankful and go straight to the holiday that people...

No Greater Love

No Greater Love

I know some people hate Disney movies for various reasons and I'm fine with that. What I find ridiculous is an article I read saying you shouldn't let your toddler watch Snow White, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, or Dumbo...

Not today, Satan, not today

Not today, Satan, not today

For a brief moment I thought my vehicle was invisible. Surely it was the only logical explanation as to why multiple cars tried to come into my lane and hit me. A few times I had to go over into the next lane and was thankful that no one was on the other side. At my...

Fall is Here !!

Fall is Here !!

OK, so fall isn't actually here for another day. Even then it'll still be hot, but does that stop me from decorating everything in leaves and pumpkins? No! Every year the house is decorated different and you never know what will be where. Here's a few decorations of...

Never Forget

Never Forget

For many reading this post today, knowing today's date, you immediately knew what Never Forget referred to. 17 years ago our world changed, although, I guess, in reality it was our world view that changed, the world remained as it had been. Hatred and evil have been...

Growing Up  Growing Apart

Growing Up Growing Apart

In my teen years I had an amazing group of friends and we were inseparable. We were all together, all the time. We would visit each other often and when one was in town we would spend every waking second together. We would write letters, visit, call each other, and...
