Him; Now

Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven... (Matthew 6:10) Often I daydream of Heaven. My eyes have been blessed to see just some of His creative beauty here on earth, yet I can only attempt to imagine the marvelous landscapes and vistas that await us. To think- not a … Continue reading Him; Now

A Love that heals

During an intimate time of prayer and worship, the Lord began to speak into my heart. I cried out like David, search my heart O'Lord! He is a faithful Father and when He searches our hearts He brings to light what we have kept in darkness. He wants to free us from all of our … Continue reading A Love that heals

Love is Blind

We've all heard the saying, "Love is blind," with both negative and positive connotations. Negatively, the love of something or someone that harms you can blind you from seeing the harm that comes from seeking it out.  Positively, love can blind you from seeing what others see and may deem "unacceptable" like those found in discrimination-color, … Continue reading Love is Blind

What if…

At some point in our lives we toil with the "what ifs." What if I'd made that move or hadn't? What if I'd stayed at that job or married that person. What if.... You come across old pictures that remind you vividly where you were the moment you decided against the "what if" in your … Continue reading What if…

Blooms in the Desert

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.” (Song of songs 2:11-13) The last weekend of the season … Continue reading Blooms in the Desert

You may find yourself this moment crying over a heart-wrenching goodbye, financial struggles, loss or even just scraped knees. We're a few months into the new year and our present circumstance manically projects a tomorrow filled with … Continue reading Remind Us

Take it-it’s Free!

Who would have ever thought it would be so hard to sell-free? I've spent the better part of my morning setting good household items out in my front yard for the taking! Good household items that we're no longer in need of as we begin the Spring cleaning purge. I've posted on various sites the good … Continue reading Take it-it’s Free!

Departing from deception

We so often find ourselves in a season of discontentment. We look around at the lives of others and might feel, "why can't my life be something like that?"  We entertain the thought that, "there has to be something more!"  We may look back and think of the things we had planned to achieve by this … Continue reading Departing from deception

Arms in the Air

We're locked in and ready as the cars creak in their route upward. Excitement, Fear, Thrill and Adrenaline are all present. As we crest the first hill we might white-knuckle it and close our eyes or we may throw our arms in the air and let go. Regardless of how we choose to ride, at that … Continue reading Arms in the Air

As I sit here thinking about this week's happenings, I find myself trying to formulate an internal to do list of how to tackle the newest problem or obstacle. Possibly it's an old problem that is slowly rearing it's ugly head again. Or maybe it's not even your own struggle but that of someone you love. You … Continue reading Filters
