Last night, I received a text from my oldest daughter, Brittany. She told me she was nervously excited about something. She had written her first blog, and she was getting ready to post it. I beamed with excitement for her! Continue reading “Even If”
Yesterday, I shared with you my love for Psalm 27. For many years, Psalm 27:1 was my life verse. “What’s a life verse,” you ask? Simply a verse you cherish – you cling to – that is helping you gain a better perspective of who God is and the truth of His word (the Bible) for your life.

This morning’s quiet time with my Love from Above led me to the book of Titus, chapter 2. As I read the passage (vs. 11-14), I was reminded of my recent struggle. Weight. Eating well. UGH! Continue reading “Telling Yourself, “NO””

My heart is heavy today for a specific type of friend. You know who you are. You’re resourceful. Determined. You forge ahead to the next best thing. So, what’s the problem? Continue reading “Your Strength is in Quietness and Trust”
Any of you play Red Rover, Red Rover when you were a kid?
Here’s a run-down of how it went. There were two teams, each team standing side by side in a straight line while holding hands. The two teams stood facing each other with about twenty feet between them. Continue reading “Red Rover, Red Rover . . .”
