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.

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 »

The Comfort Zone Rut

As we plow into January, many of us are taking time to do a little self-reflection and try to address any ruts we may find ourselves. I’m a gal who loves a routine. I love my comfort zones. I mean, the name alone, has the word comfort in it. But, sometimes our comfort zone can … Continue reading »

Basking in the Blessings

We recently had some very cold days here in Georgia. Some of our state even got blessed with copious amounts of snow. Unfortunately, in my little town, we just got a light dusting and some bitter cold, which I openly grumbled about. This southern girl, is not a cold weather person and I found myself … Continue reading »

The Dream Lives On

Today, our country celebrates and reflects on the life and the message of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I had to read his, “I Have A Dream,” speech for an English 101 class as a freshman in college. I remember being incredibly moved by his words written some 25 years earlier. I suppose … Continue reading »
