What can we do when it feels like the world has been stripped of you? How should we go? How do we proceed and prevail?
We proceed faithfully into our destiny.
Ships have anchors to hold them tight during the dread of night.
Though the calm around you is absent, there can still be a calm within you. Hold onto him deliberately. You have got to be deliberate.
What do you do when it feels the Lord has taken from you about all he can take, only to find he is asking
I love to decorate. Anything. I like decorating a home. I like textiles and clothes to drape on the body. I love personal training and bodybuilding as I see the human form as a great canvas built to perform amazing things. How marvelous it is to sculpt and shape and strengthen it. And I also love to wrap gifts and create a gorgeous bow on top. Presentation does matter. First impressions count enormously. It takes countless second impressions to erase a poor first impression. However, we cannot and should not
The dessert rose is a lovely plant. So stunning is its thick trunk, green leaf and star shaped flower most gardeners recommend showcasing this plant rather than tucking it in with the other garden foliage. The dessert rose originated near the Sahara Dessert. This flower loves the heat and is drought resistant.
The human heart is like a lily of the valley, the dessert rose, a garden of splendor. Just like a garden, the human heart needs special care and attention. Not every heart is exactly the same. Some need
Gardener of Heart
When someone discovers and falls in love with God they are like a new garden. A seed has been sown that has sprouted something. But just like a garden, they must be showered with love. They must be fertilized with faith. They must be encouraged in their new found hope. Otherwise, the cares of the world may burn down and scorch their faith causing it to fade, wilt and die before it ever fully blooms.
Hearts are like gardens. The more TLC the greater the harvest. You are a
“Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” Luke 8:46
Today is my son, Andrew’s 9th Birthday. I love Andrew immensely. Andrew is significantly younger than his siblings. I was an older Mom when I had him.
Our entire family was going through the trial of our life when I discovered I was pregnant with my little man. We were enduring the lawsuit from hell that lasted six years with no respite in sight with a man who I believe God used to teach me a lot
As I sit and begin to write this the song “The Imigrant” by Led Zepplin runs through my mind. Why? Because it’s in a Marvel movie…but I will get to that in a moment.
2019 was one of my top two most difficult years of my entire life. It runs in close competition with the single year myself and my family had to live homeless moving from hotel to hotel waiting for God to move in an impossible situation. The homeless thing ended with us moving from a hotel directly to
What do the caterpillar and bumble bee have in common?
Neither knows how extraordinary they could be. Sometimes the same it true for you and for me. We never see ourselves quite as we should. Either too grand or not so good.
But the caterpillar overcomes to become something beautiful that can fly. And the bee possesses wings that can take it high despite the laws of physics (body too big and wings too small). He flies anyway and extracts sweet nectar everywhere he goes.
All of life has something beautiful that can

Change comes to us all. You don’t have to listen to the idle chatter. When something is the matter look up. Because doubt looks down and worry looks around. When we keep our gaze fully where it needs to be it doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. You must do what is best for you.
What is it you need? What is it your family needs? How will you intercede?
Wash away fear, doubt and worry. Make it flee in a hurry.
I can’t believe it has already been nearly
I’ve been a writer all of my life. I just didn’t always know it. I wasn’t always aware of my gift there. Wasn’t aware it was a strength.
I’ve been a writer all of my life, but I haven’t always done so with a pen.
A writer is always writing. We do it with words, but sometimes those words are thoughts and memories and things etched within us that stay with us. The inspiration comes from a variety of sources. I have been known to find much inspiration in the
God is so enormously unique.
My entire life has been full of rules. And in the midst of all the rules and all of my compliance, God swooped in on my heart and showed me his love and that it is ultimately not about rules (though he does have some).
And by his love he ruled, schooled and won my heart.
He gave me a connection with him like none other. He is the line I am connected to.
My entire life I have gone—on and off—to church, but never truly felt I fit
