When loves walks in you can feel it…
Unfortunately only women will able to relate to this, but if you’ve ever been pregnant you know what I mean. Once the baby in gestation gets to around the 16 weeks you may begin to feel the baby move. As the baby grows the feelings get stronger and you can literally discern the shape of the baby. My oldest had her toes wrapped around my ribs for the entire third trimester and I could caress the heel of her foot quite discernibly. I
There are few things in life quite like the glory of friendship.
My entire life I have more negative female experiences than positive ones. Perhaps this isn’t true, it is better to declare that I have had more than my fair share of the extreme in this department.
As a youth I was the “outsider” in my church youth group. At school I had girlfriends I hung around with, had common clubs or classes with, but it wasn’t uncommon for them to behave “uniquely” toward me. If not at first–eventually. But there
“As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.”
I really think this quote is cute. I’m not a golfer (yet), but I’ve been a few times and I kind of think it’s a hobby I could learn and be challenged and enjoy. But for now it’s a someday thing because I’m in the thick of paying for kids schooling and sports and some other things I’m working on…
My Dad is a golfer. Has been for years.

Lord, bless us each with the contentment that surpasses understanding. Let the Peace I have found in each moment , that wellspring of Hope I’ve tapped into, flow like a fountain well allowing all who are thirsty and dry and in need of refreshment, to drink liberally from my inkwell. Let them get tanked, drenched, saturated, in the most Glorious of ways. Amen.
One of the best things you can do in a dry
God knows and He has a plan.
When you feel all your everything has run out, that is when it’s time to shout about how good your God is!
When you’ve exhausted all hope, that is when you go to a new level of extraordinary faith obedience and trust for provision. Our faith blossoms to new levels as we watch God dig deep and pull out miracles.
He won’t be losing any sleep over our trials, so we shouldn’t either.
What is it your heart aches or yearns for? God wants you to, hand
Poetic Prose of Adoration. Penned early a.m., Monday 3/25/19
I confess, I love writing, but the prose are my favorite. They bleed more of the essence of me, heart and soul and my affections released for the One worthy to be Adored. I named this one Canopy though I mention the word not once with the prose of my pen.
Canopy because of what it represents. A Canopy of Hope is an effective covering for the heart. Blessed, Refreshed, Replenished, Loved…
all create a Haven…
God bless your heart today with Valor to Conquer
My God is Good! My God is Faithful! My God is both Just and Merciful simultaneously. My God is a Warrior. My God is Endearing. My God Prevails. My God loves… My God never forgets to count our benefits. My God can take the cost that we count as loss and turns it into something better. My God lavishes the soul with Hope. He equips every human who seeks His face with the ability to cope through difficult circumstances. My God has a special affection for humanity. He rejoices
Though the flames blaze, He can hear your praise. “I need you more…”
Your Assignment will never be subject to the approval of others. In fact, it is in the presence of disapproval that you are proving the depth of your love to your Savior…the Besotted One.
Does God need us to prove our love to Him?
He is Sovereign–and as such in no way needs my love, no way needs your love, He has no need of our love.
God’s Grace cannot be trumped by our goodness. His grace is scandalous and pardons what we can’t fix and I think this is a beautiful, but peculiar aspect to His Character.
I love it!
Our obedience is a form of adoration, but it is not the instrument of His portions.
Because HE Lives!
We may fall…
But He will rise!
Doing good and being good are good. But what stirs God’s heart is when we love good.🌸💗
God doesn’t need our effort to advance Himself, but by the power of His love He includes
Because of you I can face tomorrow…
What am I but a vapor in your Presence?
I am what amounts to nothing on the radar of eternity, in comparison to your extreme Sovereignty.
Who am I that you should love me?
Who am I that you should notice me and count me among the gems in your Garden?
What do we do when every dream of our soul goes unfulfilled?
Where do we turn when we appear to be forsaken?
We can have hope.
We can abide in Hope.
We can hold on even when we’re not feeling
