A Jesus Moment

I rushed home from errands, pulled the car in the garage and quickly went to close the garage door behind me.  As I turned, I looked to make sure my car was in far enough (learning from past mistakes!).  And I saw it.  It seemed like for the first time.  I stared in wonder of how blessed I was.  ItContinue reading “A Jesus Moment”

Living Amazed

From the first day of Earth to today, God has been doing amazing things in our lives. And when Jesus preached and performed miracles, the Bible frequently says the people were amazed. Each day we get up to start a new day. Each day we put our feet on the floor, have breakfast, brush ourContinue reading “Living Amazed”

Our Flappy Rudder

I sat there as only one of two women coaches in the room.  There were about 20 of us, coaching girls softball ages 7 to 15.  We had recently finished the fall season where I had told my assistant coach to never step foot on a field where I was coaching.  He constantly undermined my authority, which cameContinue reading “Our Flappy Rudder”

The Bionic Jesus Follower

I found this beautiful poem about what God is that I thought you might enjoy! He is ourContinue reading “God Is My Rock”

About 22 years ago I started regularly attending church. As my husband’s family was Presbyterian, we decided to also join our local Presbyterian church. This Doxology, as it is called, wasContinue reading “Praise God From Whom All Blessing Flow”

Bless The Lord

Day 1 This is not the praise song I intended to start with. You see, I looked at this beautiful video and then moved on to others. But every single time I tried to copy the other URLs into this post this video kept getting copied instead. A few dozen frustrating times later I realizedContinue reading “Bless The Lord”

Clear Eyes Open Heart

As I’ve gotten older my allergies have gotten worse. I’ve had sinus surgery and I’m currently going through the allergy shot regimen. And yet I still need to take allergy pills both in the morning and at night. In the early years of this battle I experimented with different allergy medications. Some made me incrediblyContinue reading “Clear Eyes Open Heart”

Grasp God Tightly

What blessing are you hoping and waiting for today? It’s time to get serious about the strength of your faith and our willingness to make a full confession of our transgressions..In a recent Bible study I was asked: “What are you trying to hide from God?” Well, we all chuckled because of course you can’tContinue reading “Grasp God Tightly”
