New Project, New Home

I’ve been blogging on and off for a decade. There have been seasons where I blogged daily and felt that my community online was more important, more encouraging than my almost non-existent real life community. Now is not one of those seasons. I am invested in the people that surround me now. I am in love… Read more »

This stirs something in me

I’ve watched this more than once. God stirs something in me each time. Now I’m praying about it. Would it be possible for little old me to raise the funds for a house? It’s difficult for us to even keep up with our household bills each month. When living paycheck to paycheck is our reality, is… Read more »

Trust. Real Trust.

When the Lord gave me my One Word at the beginning of the year, I have to admit, I thought I may have heard Him wrong. At least I hoped I did. When I asked the Lord for my word I was anticipating He would give me one that was daring, exciting and maybe even… Read more »

Facing the Inevitable Trials

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever. Psalm 30:11-12 It brings me so much peace in times of trouble to know that everything that Christians go… Read more »

Waiting It Out

My sister is in surgery right now. The description the surgeon gave to her husband of how he will get to the brain tumor isn’t a pretty one. He gave him the list of possible outcomes, some of which are not pleasant, just before they wheeled her away. I’m keeping strong by praying and loading… Read more »

Is there anything too hard for God?

My world is being shaken yet I stand on His firm foundation. I can’t even imagine how it’s possible to make it through tough times without the Lord to lean on. I need Him like crazy right now and oh, He is so faithful. A week ago, at Bible study, a woman there told us… Read more »

A Step of Faith

Last night, my husband and I went to an informational meeting about becoming foster parents. We’ve been mulling over the idea for quite some time. I’m going to be honest and say that I can not, without a doubt, say that God has told us to do this. I know that we both feel lead… Read more »

A Model Congregation

We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1:3 Read the first chapter of 1 Thessalonians and you get a real sense that Paul considers the church in Thessalonica to be nearly a… Read more »

It’s All About Faith

See that tagline above. I wrote that long before I knew how appropriate it would be. It’s been a walk of faith since we moved to Texas nearly 2 years ago. Nothing seems to have come to us except through faith. Sometimes unwavering faith. Sometimes wavering. His lessons have not been lost on me and… Read more »

I want to write

There have been a million things that I’ve found to fill the free time my lack of blogging has produced. Some of them, reading for example, have been fulfilling. Others, like baking, well… just filling. I must say, my blogging life has been quite the rollercoaster and I have proven myself to be more than… Read more »
