What an excellent day.
I hear it was Heaven made.
But what exactly does that mean to you?
For me…this is what it means. A Heaven made day means something different to everyone, but here’s a glimpse into my heart and what stirs me deeply.
I love the free expression my heart yields in His Presence. It is frequently found in my pen, but when I speak it is found there as well.
He brings out the best in me.
What brings out the best in you?
I am fully aware that I am
About five or six years ago my husband decided to go on a hike up in the Mother Lode of California to spend some time in reflection and prayer. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
We love to hike and though we don’t go as much as we used to-it’s always been something we enjoy together. On this hike, he was gone a very long time and I began to feel a little concerned. John has always been really good at checking in and he tends to call me a lot in general.
Even through the toughest storms God’s got you. If you are in a storm today, He is right there in the thick of it with you, guiding you, paving the way. I actually think most people find this of comfort. Even people who never speak of God or seem to have spiritual interest seem to cry out for him in their moments of desperation. Do you know what, He takes the cry! He is just like a Father who cares for and protects His children.
If you truly knew how much

I have a large family. I did not come from a large family so this has been a new experience for me. I grew up in a quiet home where everything was always in order, tidy, organized. I tend to be a quiet, soft spoken person. I’m not loud. But when you have five children, four of which are boys, it can get kind of crazy. I think we are
With God, “What’s done is done” might not really be done…
All through the Bible we see amazing stories of how someone blew it and then God showed up with a miracle and saw them through it. Who you are is not dependent on what you do! Who you are is a result of to whom you belong to! You’ve been created by a King to do amazing things! You do your part and God does His…
I think there is a lot to be said about God’s willingness to reward our
Most mornings I drop the family at school and then my youngest stays with me and we go to the track and run some sprints before my morning clients. The same was true yesterday. Later in the day, around noon, we returned to my husband’s office which is adjacent to the track I’ve been using. My son looks toward the sky then replies, “The sun doesn’t look like that when we run sprints.” I smiled inwardly at the complexity of his observation in relation to his age. I proceeded to
Your Courage Counts;
Don’t be Overwhelmed
A step forward can be great gain when we use it to give Glory to His Name. You’re steps are Chosen. His Path for you clear. He has seen each one before you ever took one. Think about that. Have confidence in that! You can only bubble over with the Hope and Glory knowing you will have a Banner Year! No matter what you face today-it is building in you a foundation for brighter days…if you will just keep going!
Hope has an anthem and it sings
“Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out,” Acts 3:19
You are The Bride of Christ.
You have been carved from His Tree of Shame & Humility.
I woke at 3am. Wide awake like I’ve enjoyed a full night sleep. Though I did crash from exhaustion early last night, I always know my Beloved, my Savior, my Treasure is up to something when He wakes me at Night. I love the ministry and mystery of the Holy Spirit…
Now that you know I was reading at 3am you won’t be
A small child learning to walk may fall 50 times for he or she succeeds to take a handful of steps.
A kid learning to ride their bike may wibble and wobble and even fall over, but they keep getting up.
They say if you fall off of a horse you should get right back on to eradicate any future fear of riding.
How do you know this is not your year? Though we may fall. We may fail, we may not see the fruit of results God has purposed within us, we
How to Live a Life of Expectancy
Place every care, every doubt, every fear on the top shelf. Put it high and out of reach. A place hidden in God where you couldn’t retrieve it even if you were tempted to.
It has nothing to offer you.
It has nothing to give.
In the atmosphere of expectancy is where God wants you to live.
In this arena God will give abundantly to your heart. It will be amazing. God can bless hand over fist. This is the arena of Manifest Blessing to give and live.
