Winds of Change…Again

I’m sitting out on the deck with my computer and my sweetie enjoying a June evening, and basking in the joy of having accepted a nice offer on our home today.  It’s such a nice evening, but every once in a while the wind kicks up and my hair blows all over the place.  Living … Continue reading

The Cry of a Mothers Heart

Did you know that God has a soft spot in His heart for mothers?  He even likens himself to a mother several times in scripture.  My favorite one is in Isaiah 66:13.  It says “As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you”.  Sorry guys, but mothers might just have a bit of … Continue reading

Tornados and Trust

Sometimes life can feel like a whirlwind.  There’s no other way to say it.  I feel like I have been caught up in a whirlwind…actually, maybe a tornado…the last few weeks.  Three weeks ago we launched our new church.  It was a great weekend, but an unbelievably crazy busy weekend.  We saw an attendance of … Continue reading

Outrageous Grace

I started writing this blog in my head three days ago and didn’t have time or bandwidth to actually write, so I scribbled some thoughts down in a notebook.  I’m finally getting to sit down in some peace and quiet to gather my thoughts.  This has been an unbelievably busy week getting ready for the … Continue reading

The Need for Attention

Last Saturday I spent the day at my 12-year-old son’s first baseball tournament of the season.  It was a gorgeous spring day and we enjoyed spending the day together as a family.  When we got in the car to leave for the game that morning I remarked to my husband that I forgot to bring … Continue reading

Confidence or Arrogance

I recently listened to a Bill Johnson message on confidence and it got me thinking about the difference between confidence and arrogance.  Personally, I have struggled with a lack of confidence both in myself and in what the Lord wants to accomplish through me, so this message really intrigued me.  Bill made the point that … Continue reading

Joyful Anticipation

You know that feeling of having butterflies in your stomach when you are really looking forward to something?  Lately I have experienced that feeling quite often.  That feeling of joyful anticipation…of not knowing exactly what the future holds but knowing that it will be a thrilling ride.  The feeling of being on the brink of … Continue reading

For the Love of Sugar

This last week we celebrated Valentine’s Day – the holiday of love…and candy.   I posted a blog entitled  “A Valentines Day Rant” on my Facebook wall from one of my favorite health and wellness bloggers,  Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist.  When I read her blog about the barrage of candy on holidays such as Valentine’s … Continue reading

The Right Tool

This last week I bought myself a new eye makeup kit that I was really excited about.  I know guys, you thought this was about tools.  Well…hang in there with me for just a minute.  As I was using my new eye makeup kit the next morning I noticed the brushes included with it were … Continue reading

Patience or Lack Thereof

I am not very good at waiting.  Patience is definitely not a virtue of mine.  In fact, to be perfectly honest, I struggle daily with my lack thereof.  But it does seem like I’m always waiting for something.  Last year I took the plunge and decided to get braces at 40 years old.  The orthodontist … Continue reading
