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…

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…

Always Look Up

I receive the monthly Voice of the Martyrs publication. Reading the accounts of the persecution and heavy trials our brothers and sisters endure around the world because of their faith in Jesus touches my heart in a profound way. So many times I wish to share their stories with others so that we can all…

Solid Rock

There are many perspectives floating, or should I say flying around, these days about all that our country, and the entire world for that matter, is experiencing this pesky year of 2020. At the very beginning of the pandemic, fear of the unknown caused unanswerable questions to run rampant. Then, a little further into the…

He Never Leaves (updated post with song attached)

I wrote the verses to this song (video at the end of this post) some time ago. I found Psalm 13 in the midst of constructing this song and that is where the chorus and bridge/ending came about. I have written honestly about feeling alone and wondering where God is in times of darkness. At…

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…

Who’s In Charge Here?

What do people do when something goes wrong?  They approach whoever’s in charge.  If there is bad service at a restaurant, they ask to speak to the manager.  If they are concerned about an education issue they contact the principal or the school district or even their state’s officials.  When facing a health crisis –…

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…

Inspire to Create, Create to Inspire

Inspiration is not always easy to come by, especially when you have been in a season of experiencing an all too familiar depression and an altogether new experience with anxiety.  Praise God I am not in that place right now, but I have been recently.  I may share some more about that in a post…
