I feel kind of silly because I so wanted to write daily and that lasted about a week. Best laid plans… I’m determined to get in the habit because it helps my focus. Hopefully, tomorrow?!? This week is my last of graduate class homework! Yippee! I really don’t even have time to write right this… Continue reading So Loved
Day 4 – In Spite of Me
I few years ago I had the privilege of leading a women’s retreat for a church I used to attend. The title was “In Spite of Me.” (I cannot take the credit for the title because my friend Phoebe came up with it.) I loved it. I still do, because my salvation is totally in… Continue reading Day 4 – In Spite of Me
The Process of Forgiveness: Steps 1 to 70×7
Recently I’ve had a few people tell that if I’ve forgiven my husband I should be in a better place. From what I’ve heard I shouldn’t be angry at him again. The only problem with this idea is that I gotta deal with the man and he’s difficult so that’s gonna be real hard. It… Continue reading The Process of Forgiveness: Steps 1 to 70×7
Count it all what?
I’ve been working for over a week on a post about counting it all joy. And honestly I’m still unsure that I truly understand it as much as I’d like, but I decided that maybe what I need to do is share and see where God takes us… Today I have two meetings… Continue reading Count it all what?
Life in the Back Row
There are things that bring back very vivid memories for me…some painful some not. This evening I was playing through some praise music I found in my organizing spree and I began to play “Mighty to Save.” Everyone needs compassion Love that’s never failing Let mercy fall on me Everyone needs forgiveness The kindness of… Continue reading Life in the Back Row
Do You Know How to Live Grace?
Have you ever gotten a continual message from God…over and over and over again in as many different ways as you can imagine? Lately that has been my experience with the gospel. Every book I pick up, every sermon I hear, every quote I find, and every verse I read points me to the gospel…or… Continue reading Do You Know How to Live Grace?
Are You Giving UP?
I was talking with a friend lately about how it feels like for the past 5+ years God has asked me to give up A LOT! Sometimes it feels like all I’m doing is giving up people, things, hopes, and dreams… Sometimes it has felt unbearable and sometimes it has been relatively easy. Sometimes… Continue reading Are You Giving UP?
What Happens Afterwards?
It’s been a weird week or so. Do you know what I mean? I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s been a little off. I think I know part of the reason and it’s quite surprising to me. Particularly because I thought I was kinda past all this stuff. You know all healed… Continue reading What Happens Afterwards?
I Should Have Hugged Her
I was sitting here just finishing up my quiet time and it struck me. I should have hugged her. My 7-year old broke her toe last week. We are gimpy together…same foot even! It would be comical if it weren’t so pathetic. She won’t let me take a picture of our… Continue reading I Should Have Hugged Her
Having a Difficult Day…
I had a really difficult day recently. I’m not sure why but I reverted back to being very annoyed by my ex-husband. My youngest daughters had games that day and my oldest daughter invited him to sit with us – which is a very normal thing – but that day I could barely stand it.… Continue reading Having a Difficult Day…
