One Word (or two) for 2019.

It's that time again to ditch the New Year's resolutions in favor of One Word to focus on all year long. I've picked my one word for 10 years now and it's helped me to stay focused on what I want to accomplish. For instance, rather than saying, "I want to lose weight," I might... Continue Reading →

One Little Word :: 2017 #prayer

Do you make New Years resolutions? Not me. I always have good intentions to get in shape. Then, by February I am sitting on the couch eating guacamole and chips, watching The Biggest Loser. Instead of a resolution I choose One Word. One word helps keep me focused for 365 days. There is only one... Continue Reading →

Gratitude and Prayer

My One Little Word (OLW) for 2016 is gratitude. And yet, here it is almost August, and I have written about gratitude...maybe three times? I haven't counted, but it's been a long time. In the gratitude journal that sits on my bedside table, I've long stopped writing a gratitude list everyday. It's turned into more... Continue Reading →

The Power of Prayer is Real

Have you ever prayed for something that you wanted/needed badly? Have you ever prayed for healing, whether for yourself or a loved one? Were those prayers answered? I have, so I know the power of prayer is real. It's not to say those prayers were answered just the way I wanted, because God answers prayers,... Continue Reading →

What to do When it Feels Like the World is Falling Apart

Okay. So. I had a post ready for today. It is thoughts on our summer bible reading of Ephesians 5. I can't post that today. My heart is heavy. I can't post that when planes are shot down. When Hamas is raging war against Israel. When ISIS is persecuting Christians, forcing them from their homeland... Continue Reading →

Gut wrenching sadness…

Again. Again I feel I have been punched in the gut. 26 victims dead, 20 children (ages 6-7) and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut on Friday. Again a tragedy of unspeakable imagination that I have no words for. President Obama, wiping away tears over these events, quoted this scripture during his press... Continue Reading →

A Nightly Prayer.

Before the ending of the day, Creator of the world we pray, That you, with love and lasting light, Would guard us through the hours of night.   From all ill dreams defend our eyes, From nightly fears and fantasies; Redeem through us our evil foe, That we no lasting harm may know.   O...

Pray for Joplin

If you haven't seen the photos of Joplin, Missouri yet...well, the destruction is hard to describe. I pray for everyone who is still missing, like my customer's cousin, Mary Beth. I pray for those who lost their life today and for those who came close. I pray for those who survived, but lost everything they... Continue Reading →

great faith quote

I read this quote in Whole Living Magazine. I almost bought the magazine just because of it... When I was a teenager I dreamed of going to Paris. (Yes, I know the picture is of Montreal...in Canada, not France.) I even had a poster of the Eiffel Tower hung on my wall next to my... Continue Reading →
