The Answers to a Big Question

Ok, friends! Here are the answers to the questioned posed earlier this week by Pastor DeGreen! I love them all.  (The one with asterisks were especially special to me:) And to add a Bible verse for today…this is special because my best friend and I were required to memorize it in Junior High when our basketball coach…

“Do ye Kin Me?” (without understanding true love is impossible)

It is four o’clock in the morning. I’ve been up since 1 trying to go back to sleep…but 3 hours later, here I am. I gave up on the sleep for now. Instead I am eating Natural Smuckers, no sugar or artificial sweeteners added pb&j on rice cakes and drinking Almond milk. “What!?!” you say, “No Gheradelli dark chocolate…

I Love Your Face

My friend Pastor Chris DeGreen, is committed and devoted to putting out a morsel of soul filling food for thought each morning. That inspires me! Sometimes his messages are personal stories…sometimes they are thoughts based on scripture. Today he posed an interesting question. In his “Day of Praise” devotional today, Pastor DeGreen writes: “Son, your sins are forgiven.”…

Forever Friends in the Lord

I have a Pastor friend who writes a daily devotional. Each morning (except Sunday when he is preaching at his church) I look forward to receiving the “lesson”. It gives me something good and positive to start my day! I am inspired by him, and I am going to try to post a daily devotional too! 14…

The Gift of Tussle

My first experience with the unpredictability of the great outdoors, the time when I fell in that snow drift at nine months old, didn’t deter me in the least. From that day on, weather permitting, and Momma permitting, I was outside every minute I could be.  I needed plenty of room to flip and jump and roll.…

“Pray About Everything. Worry About Nothing.” Yeah, Right! (easier said than done)

(This is a revised article I wrote in February of 2011. It is as true today as it was then…maybe even more so. Wonderful things can happen when we decide to step out in Faith. We are not made to be a vase of cut flowers that are brilliant for only a short time. We…

All That I Need

I can’t turn around without a reminder that without relationships everything else is meaningless. I have not been “hit on the head” with the same Bible verse, the same stories, the same examples. I have been embraced by, wrapped up in and girded. Funny, the word “girded”should come to me! It is not a word I use in every…

A Thought on Love

Valentine’s Day …the day after Ash Wednesday this year…the day after the beginning of Lent? How can that be fair? For some the Lenten Season doesn’t mean anything particularly special. Honestly, until I was well into adulthood I did not really know that Ash Wednesday was the beginning of a New Season. The first understanding I had of Lent was when Episcopal friends would…
