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”

A Good Plan

When my eldest was two years old (she’s now 27) I quit my career job.  It was a big decision for me as I placed so much value in working.  I had never planned on being married and having children so getting a good education and then a good career was my grand plan.  And here I was,Continue reading “A Good Plan”

Love+Mercy=Deeds

When my youngest daughter began her college search 6 years ago she was determined to go somewhere far away from home.  Her preference was to play field hockey on the east coast.  After visiting six states and six colleges in the course of five days we still didn’t land on the perfect place.  And then out of theContinue reading “Love+Mercy=Deeds”

Show Me, Tell Me

They didn’t want to add to our current, stressful situation.  My husband, their son, owns and operates residential Alzheimer’s care facilities and each day the state government was changing rules related to COVID-19.  The staff were worried, residents’ family members were worried. And true to my in-law’s gracious ways, they didn’t want to pile on more badContinue reading “Show Me, Tell Me”

God Woos Us

During my years of attending church and going to bible studies I have heard many scripture verses surrounding love: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son.” John 3:16 “Love is patient, love is kind.” 1 Corinthians 13:4 “And now these three remain; faith, hope and love.  But the greatestContinue reading “God Woos Us”

Always Faithful

Have you ever “waited for the other shoe to drop?”  I used to live my life out that way all the time.  If something was good, I was just waiting for it to go bad.  If something was bad, I was waiting for it to get worse.  I truly don’t understand how my husband has put up with meContinue reading “Always Faithful”

The Bionic Jesus Follower

Introduction My friend Besty is incredible.  I first met her when I started working out at the gym where my daughter was a physical therapist.  I instantly was drawn to her positivity and strength.  On her 70th birthday, Betsy and another friend did 70 burpees without stopping,  If you have ever done a burpee you are probably saying, “wow!!” SheContinue reading “The Bionic Jesus Follower”

Christ Alone –The Great I Am

Day 8 I heard this song last year at the church I was attending. It was so beautifully done I was in tears. Every time I play this song I feel so connected to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It lifts my heart. I find myself raising my hands in my car or outContinue reading “Christ Alone –The Great I Am”

To The King Eternal

Day 3 I’ve been seeing Charles Spurgeon’s name and quotes pop up frequently in various Bible studies. Spurgeon was an English Baptist pastor in the late 1800s.  His first pastoral calling was when he was only 19 years old.  He was seen as a remarkable young man of faith with special speaking abilities. In March, my son-in-lawContinue reading “To The King Eternal”

Clean Feet

Did you realize that Jesus, in the upper room before His death, cleansed all the disciples’ feet.  By all I mean even Judas’ – the betrayer.  Jesus, however, made it clear that not all of the disciples had been cleansed. “Those who have had a bath (cleansing of the spirit) need only to wash their feet (toContinue reading “Clean Feet”
