But he said…

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  2 Corinthians 12:9 I have taken for granted that I understand this verse. I’ve had it memorized for years, but I don’t think I fully grasp its meaning.  I think I’ve been skating along the surface… Continue reading But he said…

God said No and That’s a Good Thing

I just have to begin by saying thank you for all the prayers and kind words of encouragement. Yesterday I finally called to find out test results.  I was twisted in knots waiting and decided that it was time to just find out already. When I called the nurse took a minute and then came… Continue reading God said No and That’s a Good Thing

Taking 4 Steps Back

Once upon a time… There was a little girl who dreamed of being married and raising beautiful little children who would love the Lord and each other.  There wasn’t a white picket fence, but there was a big oak tree with a tire swing, a creek with tadpoles, a kitchen counter with a fresh loaf… Continue reading Taking 4 Steps Back

Up to My…Head

When I started this blog I wanted to offer hope with a dash of humor thrown in for good measure.  I can, at times, be a little funny.  My amusing side has been slipping a bit lately, and I’d like to find that voice again. As I begin this new year, I’m thinking I want… Continue reading Up to My…Head

Trusting God 

Family Matters I’m hopefully attaching my newest blog to FamilyMatters.net…I’m never quite sure when it comes to technology!  God has been working so much on strengthening my understanding of trust.  I’m still learning and growing in it.  Pretty sure I need to learn and grow more and faster would be good too!  I hope God… Continue reading Trusting God 

Day 6 – Today I Pray

Today I’m going skiing after 30 years of avoidance.  The last time I went I fell off the ski lift – didn’t even make it to the top of the mountain before I took a spill.  This sport will probably not be my forte, but I have been convinced to give it a try.  After… Continue reading Day 6 – Today I Pray

Day 3 – Armed and Ready

I have been so excited to get into God’s word that last night I almost just stayed up past midnight getting started.  I probably should have…might have been divine prompting…because this morning has been one mishap after another.  I’m on outfit number 3.  I apparently have 6 single socks with no partner…I searched with that… Continue reading Day 3 – Armed and Ready
