Have you ever seen a child who had a toy in their hand and just ran and ran and ran and played with that toy in their hand? The toy was apart of everything they did. Do you know what you’re seeing when you see this because it is so much more than a child with a toy. You’re seeing a person in love. You’re seeing a kid who adores their toy. It is an object of their affection.
When my youngest child was two years old he always had
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
“Give us today our daily bread.”
It is time to cancel debts.
If you’ve ever worked to get out of debt you know how difficult it can be. But what may be even more difficult than becoming debt free, is remaining debt free. What is true for our finances is also true for our spirit.
There is one above to came to cancel every debt for all of eternity. He came to set us free from captivity and all that would bind us, burden us, hold us down. He came to do
I just read a fantastic article about how to find a teachable moment with your child in the midst of an awkward, uncomfortable or negative situation. Extremely commendable effort this piece. I deeply desire to share it as it is the inspiration for this blog piece. I’m having a little trouble with my plugins so I’m not sure the link with connect. I will include it so you can merely cut and paste in your search. Fantastic piece.
I spent a great percentage of my life with personal experiences of feeling
Give it your ALL—
How can I adequately sing a song of praise to you? How can I properly change my heart to execute your Goodness, Mercy and Love?
There is no one like you…
Not on the earth.
Not under the earth-
Nor can one be found in the sea or within the heavens.
You alone are ALL.
Because you are ALL- you not only inspire me to give you my all, but your devotion to me has power to demonstrate that I have your all as well. I know others love you and you enjoy
New Hope for a New Day. . .
Samuel was a sleeping boy. Yet, the Lord called to him by name. You were sleeping. You maybe weren’t lying down or having your eyes closed, but you were asleep, Slumber of Soul.
At the end of the day when the sun decides to go away and cradle itself on the horizon
The moon arises and this is of no surprise, yet it takes the breath away.
God is like both the sun & the moon—He isn’t going anywhere.
He is committed to you through thick &
“Sow a thought, reap an act. Sow an act, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a destiny.”
All of life is like being a farmer. We sow, we water, we cultivate, we harvest. The reward is yours and the magnitude of it depending on the type of seed you sow, care you take, love you bring (which is just the right fertilizer) determines the harvest you reap.
Put your love on display—
People everywhere are bleeding on the inside and not saying anything.
People everywhere are empty within.
People all around us have
Unconventional and Scandalous Love. . .
There will always be more people who speak something wrong with you than those who cheer you on in something right. But we don’t live for the applaud OF others. We live to applaud others, notice them for all the wonderful and potential or possibility locked inside of them.
Celebrating others is the essence of the Love sent from above. It’s not our job to fix people, at least it’s not mine. It’s my job to love others and champion all the great within them, healing,
Last night I had the most hysterical conversation with my youngest child as he tries to decide what decade I was born. Once we had it all sorted out he was quite surprised and informed we that the Toy Story movies weren’t even made yet when I was born!
He is in the early middle childhood years and it’s so fun to talk with him. How he got a large vocabulary and mind he has blows me away. It’s fun to watch their cognition change and develop with age. The complexity
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Who is he to lack consideration to provide for you?
God never takes a day off from caring about you. He never grows weary or tired. He is always up for traveling with you down that extra mile!
Oh Ancient of Days! The Lord says to the souls of men,
“Graze on my hills, rest in my valleys. Drink deep my sweet nectar as the bee upon the flower. Hold tight to my embrace. I Am Grace. I Am the foliage that shades your face.
