Because We Can

My family just returned from a week at the beach. We had a nice time. The little condo we stayed at had a plant out on the deck. It wasn’t in very good shape. It was quite wilted from lack of water. I asked myself who would leave a plant out at a vacation spot … Continue reading »

Taking a Break

My kids have just gotten out of school for the summer and our family is taking a vacation this week to relax and enjoy a little break. We have VBS coming up soon and then a mission trip. I can’t wait to see how God shows Himself to us this summer and I’m looking forward … Continue reading »

A Call to Thrive

We bought a brand new hummingbird feeder this year. I had never seen one like it. It’s a two-story with eight different slots, complete with perches, for the little hummingbirds to feed at. I was hoping at last there would be plenty of nectar and plenty of perches and the little birds would spend more … Continue reading »

Heaven We Have a Problem

I recently watched the movie, “Apollo 13,” which by most accounts is a pretty accurate account of the actual events of the Apollo 13, space mission. It’s a fabulous movie and I had seen it before, but it had been a while. Different aspects spoke to me this time. The entire mission was the perfect storm. … Continue reading »

A Call to Love Like Jesus

Yesterday I subbed in a fifth grade class on the day before the last day of school. It was a little crazy to say the least. It was also awards day and so many of the parents would be coming to see their child get an award. Oh, yeah and it was also the fifth … Continue reading »

Holding Out for Transformation

When my hubby and I bought our house, there were holly bushes growing on each side of our driveway. They are evergreen and require very little maintenance and the deer won’t eat them, so we were happy to have them there. But, as the years passed, they got bigger and bigger and really needed trimming. … Continue reading »

More Jesus

Yesterday morning, a friend of mine posted a link to a blog on Facebook. It was titled “Take a little wine for your stomach (or how to live well in a stressful world.) It was based on 1 Timothy 5:23 which reads, “Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and … Continue reading »

Never Be Afraid to Grow

I was recently watering my African Violet. It’s a plant that came in a tiny pot. Because of their size, people often put them on window sills to add color. They make special pots for them and everyone who knows anything about growing them will tell you that you have to buy those special pots … Continue reading »

Fearless Faith

I pinned the above quote on Pinterest a few weeks ago. I don’t really spend that much time on Pinterest. Quite frankly, it usually frustrates me. I’m not all that creative and I certainly can’t build a house out of wooden pallets, or a coffee table, or even a shelf. That kind of art is … Continue reading »

A Faith Oasis

I was gazing out my window yesterday at my barren, unappealing deck. It was covered in yellow oak tassels and sticks from all of the wind we have had lately. Both tables were covered in debris as well. As I looked out there, It thought to myself that I really would like to look out … Continue reading »
