One Tiny Pierce

This is a strange time in history. Each day, it seems we are closer to saying goodbye to life as we have known it. I know that sounds dramatic. I believe that our society is declining at a rapid pace. The underbelly of cause lies in the battle for souls, spiritual in nature. We see…

So Good To Be Back

I am full of joy over what happened yesterday. Since February of 2020, due to Covid restrictions, I have not been permitted to enter the facility where I have volunteered for the last six years. Well, yesterday was my first day back with those beautiful people in almost a year and a half. The facility…

Love This Day

Another Mother’s Day in the books! As is our tradition, my husband and boys and I spent the day together outdoors hiking/walking. My oldest son wanted to be there and planned to be, but he was under the weather and was unable to join us. We missed him! I love Mother’s Day. I love that…

My Hope Is In You

“For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.”  Psalm36:9 I think every parent has, more than just a time or two, experienced gripping panic when it comes to the well-being of their children.  I know I sure have!  None of us has all the answers, and we certainly don’t…

Do You Love Me?

Nothing feels better than when selflessness is lived out and expressed as genuine love. Why is it so difficult to love that way at all times? It is easier to love without reservation if the reciprocation of that love is guaranteed. How many times do we have an idea to reach out to someone but…

Mother’s Day Thoughts (A Mother’s Perspective)

Before I speak from a mother’s perspective, I’d like to acknowledge my mom from a daughter’s perspective.  Mom, I don’t know how you communicated love so easily.  You may not even have realized it.  I never felt controlled by you or uncertain of your love for me.  The confidence I had and have now about…

This Life

As I was opening the curtains this morning I had a thought (right about the same time all the cares of the world were beginning to take up their familiar real estate in my mind). The crystal clear thought was that today isn’t about me, today is about God.  The weight of my worries instantly…

LIGHT from the Start

I have referenced my on and off again battle with depression a couple of times now on this platform. While I’m not ashamed of the struggles, it is difficult to put something so personal out there for all of the many opinions or pre-conceived notions to stir.  I can truly understand those who don’t understand….

My Constant

A few days ago I was writing in one of the last pages of one of my journals.  It is nearly full.  Pouring over the words I’ve spilled out from the depths of my heart I can plainly see that some of my battles are ongoing – not that I needed to read about them…

The Truth Matters

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me…”  John 14:5, 6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the…

Silver Bells

Bells are ringing, this 27th of November.  No, not Christmas bells, anniversary bells!  Today, I want to thank God for a gift that He has given to me each day for the past 25 years – my best friend in the whole world – my husband. We have been exceedingly blessed with the love that…
