I was shuffling through my bookcase – reorganizing and deciding which books I’d like to keep and which books I’d like to donate – when I found a book that a friend had written and sent to me a few years ago. It’s called “Walks with Rich” by C.W. Hambleton. I opened up to the… Continue reading This Place at This Time

Let Him Have It!
Recently someone asked me what God is doing in my life. What big things has God done? And I had to think… Sometimes it feels like I’m in a perpetual state of weary and I can’t see beyond the next moment…and other times I’m so desperate for a change that I look ahead with either… Continue reading Let Him Have It!
Middle of the Night Thinking
Maybe, in the middle of those sleepless nights, He is whispering in my ear, “Dearest, trust me.”
Where is My Peace?
Where does the time go? I can’t remember the last time I could sit down and put thoughts to paper. Things are just too busy. Each season seems to be busier than the last. I keep thinking the next season will slowdown…..apparently it isn’t coming anytime soon. God has blessed me with a wonderful job… Continue reading Where is My Peace?
The Rest of the Story…or Running Away

Just 10 Facts and 6 To-Dos
There is no two ways about it. I’ve become an anxious woman…again. I struggled with this years ago, and here I am again. Fearful, concerned, worried…anxious. It’s a chest-crushing fear. A wake up in the middle of the night worry. An Oh my goodness! Am I having a heart-attack? anxious. And for the life of… Continue reading Just 10 Facts and 6 To-Dos
Can I Say “Really?!?” to God?
Have you ever felt like the verse you just read, the devotional you just opened, or the thought someone just shared was…well…for lack of a better word…ugh? My sister-in-law Debbie sent me a devotional this morning. She surprises me with really beautiful encouraging texts. Just when I need them. This morning the devotional included this… Continue reading Can I Say “Really?!?” to God?
No Longer a Dragon
Sometimes it amazes me how often God gently confronts me with His word. Lately it seems every time I open the Bible or work on my Bible study or talk to a friend, He is there prodding and prompting and loving me. This past week was one of the most difficult at my job. Sometimes… Continue reading No Longer a Dragon
