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.…

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.

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.

Angels Watching Over Me, My Lord

“Loves Me Like Jesus” – Makes Me Want to HURL

Please don’t misunderstand me…I am a definitely a Jesus loving, Good- Ol’ -Country girl. I’ve lived in Tennessee, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama…I love me some country music radio – and the countrier…

“I have decided to stick with love…” MLK

In honor and commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. I wanted to offer you a few of his quotes to consider today. “Darkness  cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate;  only love can do that.” “Our  scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and  misguided men.”…
