I’d have never denied knowing Jesus like Peter did!” Or maybe you read in the Old Testament about God’s people forgetting everything that he had done to lead them out of captivity, and they begin to worship, of all things, a golden cow. You and I would never do that, right?!  I have found that in ...

Two Daffodils

One chilly morning, as the weight of the world seemed to bear down upon me, I stepped out of my house, consumed by a whirlwind of emotions.

Every step offered a momentary reprieve from the chaos of life. I ...

Fades Away

My husband Rich and I were recently chatting about friendships and people that we have lost track of over the years.  It's sad when a friendship fades and many times we are left to wonder why.  What happened?  Was this a friendship that was only meant to last a season or was there something more that transpired that we were not cognizant of at the time.  Over time, our perspectives change, and ...

Should this be our Goal for 2024?

Are you someone who makes New Year’s Resolutions? They’ve always felt daunting to me.  I do better with small, bite sized goals.   But this just may be the perfect resolution for 2024 for those of us who are followers of Christ:  How about resolving, day by day, to love more like Jesus? It’s not easy.  Sometimes we rather enjoy judging other people. Especially people who don’t sin like us.  We secretly ...

Choose Joy

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!” Psalm 30: 11-12 If you’ve ever lost someone you love, you know grief is a journey.  It takes so many twists and turns.  You never know when something or someone will trigger ...

The Trials of Life

Remember the good old days when you and your family could watch the news on TV together after a long day without feeling the need to hide under the bed in fear?  These are scary times we are living in.  I don't know where I would be without my faith!   For me, it's been a huge comfort to remember these words from The Lord's Prayer, "Your kingdom come, your will be done,on earth ...

Not Just Surviving, But Thriving

There’s something special about seeing older married couples in love.  Take my mom and dad for example.  My mom refused to leave dad’s side until the day he passed on to heaven this past January.  Even though MS had wrecked his body, his personality and faith were strong, and they still flirted with each other every day.  My in-laws are similar.  They just celebrated 63 years of marriage.  Ron brings Dorothy ...
