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
“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…

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.

“I’m hammering out the details.”
This is the word that resignates in my Spirit this morning as I am praying about some deeply personal matters. As I was penning the words I heard,
“I’m hammering out the details.”
I began to think about it.
God is hammering out the details of your life today.
You may not understand or know much about what is happening in the world around you or in your own life, but God does, and that you can trust. He’s going to work it out.
Hammering out the details is just
A person who is well loved is better able to go out and love EVERYONE better.
Doing good and being good are good. But what stirs God’s heart is when we “love good”–
Learning to love like Jesus should go deeper everyday.
Live like you are loved.
Im not talking about human love—
But, of course, human love makes such a profound difference.
This is why we are commissioned to love, first our God (He is to be our first love) and then our neighbor as ourself. Who is our neighbor? Everyone outside of ourselves!
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
“Then they were willing to let him in, and immediately the boat was where they were going!”
God can change your life in an instant.
One of the amazing highlights of our trip to Israel was visiting the very places that Jesus walked, talked, taught and lived. It creates another new level of animation to the soul of what life in his era was like. Now when I read I see the landscape vividly. Mind blowing detail manifests itself and I am grateful. Every ounce of me grateful.
We took a
Where to begin…
This is the foremost thought on my mind tonight.
I’ve arrived home from one of the most favorite weeks of my life. I had no idea how much I’d love being in Israel. So much history. So much prophesy. So much …so much. I’ve unpacked my bags (because I’m a bit of a freak about putting things in order right away). I’ve had a light snack even though it’s “bedtime”, because I managed to lose 4 pounds on our trip somehow. And now I’m sitting down with my journal
I often wake with a song in my head that becomes amplified in my heart and hopefully—
God will use it to move me, stir me, create something beautiful and lovely within me.
I give myself away…
Isn’t that truly what Christian Living is all about?
To Love Fully…
Live Wholly for the One who my heart cherishes.
When God makes a promise He seals it with a Holy Kiss from above reminding your heart of His Goodness and Love.
What will we do?
What will we say?
How will we respond when the Enemy attacks?
We give ourself

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. Whether you’ve been following me for days, weeks, years or have only just discovered this blog- I will begin as if we are only just beginning together.
Together sounds good doesn’t it?

Together has a layer of supplemental strength that can’t go wrong.
There is infinite power in together.
