This evening (last night by the time I post this) I was doing a little reading and writing, my favorite, and my youngest son was playing and talking to our cat. These are the words of advice he was giving and my heart grew instantly smitten. I can write and write and write all day. I encourage and love, but nothing will be more important to me than if I was able to be the example to my own kids so they can do as I did. That’s the power
The “Pinky Promise”…
“As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.” 1Samuel 17:48
God tends to have a preference for the Impossible. That’s where He likes to work. The impossible seems to be His specialty. In fact, He does His BEST work when the odds are stacked against us.
David met up with a giant.
Moses opposed the leader of Egypt.
Daniel prayed when He was told not to. Esther stepped into territory she wasn’t allowed.

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
You are the God of the perfect timing…
It’s God’s nature to love you all the time. It may be difficult to accept God’s Love. After all—you don’t deserve Him. He knows all of this and still chooses to cradle His heart around you. Because that’s what He wants to do! This is what the truest, purest form of love would do. It’s hard to wrap our mind around a God so dedicated to imprisoning you. That’s right…He, when released by our will to have full access to our heart,
Chores, errands, running around.
Company party, office party, neighbors party, church party, family gatherings and an endless list of this and that. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and maybe the most exhausting or depressing time of the year for many.
How ever important it is to keep the main thing the main thing.
Has this list described you?
Has the fanfare, the party air, the festive lights and tantalizing treats distracted you or overwhelmed you in any way? Or maybe you’ve not been invited to a party, not a single one,
The Lord is good and His Tender Mercies endure forever. Fragrant is the sweet smell of kindness. Aromatic are the fruit of the Spirit as they leave a trail of essential goodness.
Have you ever walked into a house while a fresh fruit pie was baking in the oven? Heaven, right? The smell is so delicious, so inviting and brings a sense of comfort and “home” even if it’s not your home.
This is how it is with the fruit of the spirit.
As we demonstrate these virtues as
Today, someone is feeling grateful for YOU. How awesome is that?
You are Special.
You are Wonderful.
You are Needed, Valued and Extraordinary.
Lips offer thanks to God for you and the offerings of your life.
Lay all your burdens down. The Breath of Heaven Rejoices over you. One of Heaven’s Heroes come true.
Life is a beautiful journey. Just because you’re being hard on yourself doesn’t mean that other people are hard on you. I wish you could see yourself like others see you!
You can do anything the
It is the dwelling place of Hope. Though it takes courage, don’t be afraid to dare to Believe.
Breath in your bones is what wakes you up in the morn…
Hope is the oxygen of the soul that builds us up and helps us take just one more step.
Love is the ultimate measure of our existence. Without it, we are nothing. With it, we are everything. Faith. Hope. Love. Breath in deeply this trio of success. Count yourself blessed.
No matter how you feel about God. God is crazy about
One of the ways the Holy Spirit moves is by using stories that we can relate to. Stories in the Word. Stories in the lives of others. Stories we hear from others. I guess God loves a good story. He understands that life is a story and it is one worth telling.
When I read about the crucifixion of Christ in the Word I can hardly get through it. I can read and try to imagine the physical pain and anguish he consumed, but I haven’t had a lot
Are there fortune cookies in Heaven?
The Kingdom of God can be like a fortune cookie. What? Stick with me a moment…
God has imbedded into the depths of each one of our being a soul. Within our soul dwells His Spirit. Well—that’s His favorite place to reside anyway.
His greatest interest isn’t your bank balance. It isn’t your job title, accomplishments or status.
No…His greatest interest is you.
See—He sees it all. The good and the not so good in each one of us. He doesn’t make a big fuss. He knows you are
