We Have To Pray For Our Country

This morning, our Pastor addressed the death of George Floyd. I am so glad that he talked about it. In my heart, I hate racism, but I was afraid that I would say the wrong thing or the sentiments in my heart would not be fully expressed in my words. My heart has been aching… Continue reading We Have To Pray For Our Country

Walk Away From People That Do Not Honor God

Good morning! Everyone is off of work and school to honor Martin Luther King Jr. today. My favorite part of his speech is that he has a dream that his children will be judged by the content of their character, not their skin color. "I have a dream that my four little children will one… Continue reading Walk Away From People That Do Not Honor God

Imagining a Majestic Christmas in Heaven with Angels Singing

Thankful for a Wonderful God to Praise in the Storm

I am so thankful that God is there for me each day. God is there for each of us, no matter what we are going through. Tonight, I received an email that made my face go pale.

Letting Go: No More Back-up Options for my Back-up Option

Boo! Today is Halloween! My kids go trick or treating every year. This year we planned to do something new. We planned to go to a Harvest Party at our church with rides, games and bouncy houses. God had a different plan for us. The party was canceled because of the weather forecast. It is… Continue reading Letting Go: No More Back-up Options for my Back-up Option

I cannot really express how wonderful it feels. God can work in ways you would never imagine. This is one example. Last Spring,… Continue reading The Lord Knows Those Who Are His
