He is continually holding my face in His gentle hands and pulling my eyes to His and reminding me once again that the only true peace is found in Him. Nothing else.
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
Don’t you just LOVE it when God hits you right between the eyes with truth? I’m not being sarcastic…truly. The other night at my Bible study we were talking about finding our identity in Christ. A topic I have explored often and tried to grasp continually. I have spent the last several years pretty consistently… Continue reading Failure to Identify
I’ve become a late-night person…through no design of my own. I desperately need more hours in the day…more days in the week…and more sleep in my bed. Last night as I lay my head down on my crazy configuration of multiple fluffy pillows, I began to pray for friends and family, for my children and… Continue reading Whatever It Takes
It is the middle of the night and I’m awake. Wide awake. Yesterday I stayed home from work because I’ve been fighting a wicked cold or flu thing and I slept most of the day. I was actually thinking I might be well-rested for the next day. No such luck. Part of the problem is… Continue reading In the Middle of the Night
There is a place I find myself…sometimes…it is no longer a place of deep grief, but of deep sighing. A place where I find myself needing the strengthing of a deep breath, the focus of a whispered prayer, and the hope of an all-powerful God. In the past, this place has been about me…about my… Continue reading A Deep Breath
What if something could change so that I wasn’t so very overwhelmed? What would it be? I’m not talking about the things that would make life easier like not having to work, having a nanny and a cook, or receiving a ton of money. I’m talking about the realistic things. The things that could actually… Continue reading Changing Me
I tend to be a “nervous Nelly”…a second guesser…a wring-my-hands in worry woman…a twisted up in knots decision-maker… That probably isn’t a surprise if you’ve read my blogs. I’m currently doing a Bible study about discerning God’s will. It has been great. Nothing earth-shattering, but still convicting as I seek His will on other decisions.… Continue reading Just One Day at a Time
How is it possible we have another snow day? Not that I’m complaining, but I kind of would like a summer break! And I feel like we are getting farther and farther behind at school…which, of course, we are. I do see this as God’s provision for me. I have caught up on my teacher… Continue reading Day 3 – All About Me
I was asked this morning. “Do I ever have a good week?” And my answer is, “Absolutely!” I absolutely have good weeks…but not easy weeks. I have no easy weeks at this point in my life. And, to be honest, these past several months have been the hardest of my life in many ways. Unexpectedly… Continue reading Do I ever have a good week?
