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
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!
It’s a gloriously slow, snowy morning…quiet and peaceful. All my sweethearts are warm, cozy, and asleep. Me….warm and cozy in my comfy chair, pondering the truth of God’s love. Recently a friend challenged me to consider what love really is. What does it mean to be loved by God? What does it mean to be… Continue reading Love-Longing
Maybe, in the middle of those sleepless nights, He is whispering in my ear, “Dearest, trust me.”
One of my favorite things is playing the piano. I grab a moment here or there to play a song or two whenever I get a chance. Yesterday I pulled out one of my Christmas songbooks and began playing “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song)” by Chris Easton and Amy Grant. I remember when it… Continue reading A Simple Life

How Elijah was blessed to see the power of God first hand and to be a part of the display… Continue reading The Rest of the Story…or Running Away
I’m praying for some serious fire from heaven, but not for the reason you might think. In the past several years there have been moments I’ve been tempted to pray that God would rain down fire on someone or a couple of someones, but thankfully God has brought me past that phase of this journey.… Continue reading Fire from Heaven
Last week I had the most wonderful time sitting at a picnic table studying God’s word, journaling, and writing some. It was quiet and peaceful. I felt inspired. I had such a blessed time writing more than I have in months, and guess what? Not one document was saved…not one. Technology and me….ugh. I was… Continue reading What’s Wrong with Happy?
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?
