Trusting God

Sometimes life seems upside-down. When we draw closer to God, we begin to learn and trust that He has a plan for us and we can let go of many of life’s anxieties knowing that He has our best interest at heart.

Eclipse Musings

Working at a local elementary school, I have been completely covered with eclipse mania. We are dismissing our students thirty minutes late today so they can view the entire eclipse with their classes, wearing safety glasses purchased from NASA. Our phones have steadily rung with eclipse questions from parents. Many children are staying home for … Continue reading »

Finding Peace Where We Are

This past summer, my family attended a mission trip. We helped to repair houses for some people who desperately needed help. We spent an entire week with other Christians. We ate every meal with other Christians and publicly prayed before we ate. We openly talked about Jesus throughout all of our days. We wore crosses … Continue reading »

God Was There

Last weekend, my hubby and I drove our daughter to college. Just like the day she was born, it was exciting and painful. Just like the day she was born, a new chapter began as another one came to a close, and just like the day she was born, God was there. It was a … Continue reading »

The Walls of Alexandria

My family just took a tour of some of the places used in the filming of the television show, “The Walking Dead.” Personally, I’m not a fan of the show. In fact, I’ve never even seen an episode. My hubby swears that there are all kinds of deeper meaning in all that transpires. But, I … Continue reading »

The Light Changes Everything

My hubby and my daughter recently visited a local restaurant. We were thinking of having her birthday dinner celebration there. It looks so cool at night. It’s very tropical. There’s sand, palm trees and string lights. We thought it might be the ideal place for some fun birthday pictures. But, when they visited the place … Continue reading »

Learning to Drive Defensively

It’s been a very busy summer for me and my family. We have had lots of changes, all good, but changes just the same. One of them has been my son turning sixteen and getting his driver’s license. Over the past year, we have probably had hundreds of conversations about driving and focusing on maintaining … Continue reading »

Eliminating Srongholds

On a recent Salkehatchie mission trip I attended, we encountered lots of wasps and found many wasp nests. When we eventually removed the nests, the wasps moved on too. I felt prompted to take a picture of one of those many nests. I wasn’t sure why at the time, but I’ve learned to follow those … Continue reading »

Removing the Bad

On a recent mission trip that I attended, I was throwing old shingles into a dumpster. When we began our work, the dumpster was completely empty. But, after we had been at work on the home for a few days, I noticed that the dumpster was getting full. We had to tear off all of … Continue reading »

Trusting God

On a recent mission trip my family took to South Carolina, we were planning on working on two houses on two different work sites. Both sites required new roofs which is not unusual for Salkehatchie mission houses. What was unsettling was that the weather report called for 80% chance of rain on Monday and 100% … Continue reading »

Choosing to Trust

One morning last week I was struggling. I was running late for work. I had a million things on my mind. My to-do list seemed impossibly endless, and I was having some serious doubts about my decision to return to work full-time after being at home with my kids for so many years. The list … Continue reading »
