Have you ever been through something hard?
Of course you have, we all have. The only thing that differs is the experience of the hard (actual trial), the length of it, the shape of it and ultimately how we handle it.
Not everyone handles their hard well.
None of us feel we handle difficulties well, except maybe someone delusional. God looks at us all through a different lens. He knows the payoff our hard can bring if we cling to His Tree of Long Suffering.
Everything we go through in life has
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.
Never chase a goal so hard you forget to have fun with it.♥️
I’ve been going through some old photos—compiling them from all the various shows I’ve done over the years. I have a specific purpose for this complication for myself and my training. It’s interesting and useful to see how I’ve changed my physique over the years. Change happens small and over time. Pictures help with perspective.
As I go through them, I am reminded there’s been quite a few and I’ve now been doing this more than just a year
You Won’t Go Under
Yesterday was yet another full and hectic day-but deep down I know wouldn’t have it any other way. I have a large family, clients who want training and a car that takes me wherever I want to go. I am indeed blessed. The afternoon was spent poolside at the school watching my son play in a water polo match. Those boys swim back and forth and track that yellow ball as they attempt to shoot and score. Sometimes they get pulled at to keep them from advancing
“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass”
1 Thes. 5:24
Noah believed and held onto a promise of God for his life for many, many years. He endured insults, rejection and jeers-but that didn’t keep him from putting one foot in front of the other, hammer to the hull. Not only did everything the Lord told him happen, he saved his family from despair and he created a marvelous invention that had never been seen, required or desired before. Talk about a Visionary!
Next time you
Each day of your life is like a page in the story of your life. What will be written today?
I love to write. It is in me to do so since childhood. As I reflect back over my life I see how he directed me to my pen over and over again.
I love a good pen.
I adore the touch and feel, the luster of quality paper.
I have countless volumes of journals. I type on the keyboard, but it just isn’t the same. There’s something magnificent to me about the creative

Hope has an anthem and it sings
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:17
Jacob wrestled with God. He came face to face with His Maker and yet his life was spared. It was there that God gave him a new name, Israel, and he was never the same.
How about you? Are you calling yourself by an old name, old expectations of old habits never to change? Don’t let it be so! God has spoken
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
In our house we have been brain washed, if you will, to believe there are two teams in baseball; the Red Sox or anyone opposing the Yankees. That is what happens when you marry a New Englander. This belief stuck pretty hard in my daughter who is a die hard baseball fan. Last year she was blessed to see the Sox play the Yankees at Fenway. A dream come true for her.
What are your dreams? Most dreams come to pass with God’s hand and some detours, pit stops and roadblocks
