Watching for God

God is all around us. All we have to do is look for Him. If we seek Him, we will find Him at times in the most unlikely places.

The Best is Yet to Come

Last week was a blur of activity for me. I work in an office of an elementary school, and it was the last week of school. The activity was nearly constant. We had visitors and speakers. We had a flood of parents coming for lunch just one more time. We had a step up day … Continue reading »

Remembering to Look

I recently had a really rough day. I had to go to the drugstore on the way home from work to pick up a prescription for a physical ailment. But, I was emotionally distraught too. I went home and collapsed on my bed for a little while in the fetal position. There was simply no … Continue reading »

The Business of Restoration

One day last weekend, my daughter was in a terrible mood. She didn’t even want to come out of her room. While I know that this is fairly normal behavior for teenage girls, it bothered me that she was so out of sorts. We talked for a little while and I shared with her some … Continue reading »

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Today is St. Patrick’s Day. I really like this holiday. There’s no pressure to buy anything. Everyone just wears green and celebrates our supposedly, Irish roots, while looking for leprechauns. But, St. Patrick’s Day has an interesting past which is actually God centered. It’s all a little cloudy because it happened so long ago, somewhere … Continue reading »

Walking by Faith

On Sunday morning, my hubby gently tapped me and informed me that we had missed springing forward for daylight savings time. We have never done that before, but interestingly enough, I wasn’t filled with the need to rush. I had actually been dreaming about the song we were singing that morning in the choir. It … Continue reading »

Beating the Odds

I was working outside this weekend with my hubby. We finally got some rain last week, but I noticed that the ground was still cracked and rock hard. While I was holding up a board, a bright green sprout caught my eye. He patiently waited while I snapped some photos. After twenty years of marriage, … Continue reading »

The Rewards of Seeking

I was taking a walk recently and praying. The day was beautiful and unseasonably warm for a winter day in Georgia. I had a lot on my mind and my heart was heavy. I often find that God communicates with me when I’m out in nature. In the past, He has sent me a hawk. … Continue reading »

A Call to Actively Seek

Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One, is though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.” Those are wise and deep words spoken by one of the most brilliant men who ever lived. It’s interesting to me that so often, Christians are criticized for … Continue reading »

Keeping the Right Focus

My hubby, my kids and I, have been working on remodeling our deck, since the summer. Being do-it-yourselfers, requires lots of time and patience. Getting any work done requires the weather to cooperate, as well as open schedules, which tend to be rare when you are raising teenagers. But, lately, we have had spring weather … Continue reading »

Watching for His Suprises

Last week, we were blessed with some delightfully warm weather for the end of January. I took full advantage of the mild weather and got outside as much as possible. My favorite prayer time is when I am out in nature, surrounded by Creation. I also find that when I’m moving my body while I … Continue reading »
