Lending a Helping Hand

Good morning! There are so many ways to show acts of kindness.  I talked about gift giving a couple days ago.  Did any of you send gifts?  The boys were so excited about the gifts they had bought for each other they were up at 4:30 in the morning to open them!  LOL!  Getting gifts...

When the Alpha Rises from Within

Good evening! Why is it that when we encounter other alpha personalities, we feel the need to release the alpha from the inside of us? I was getting the oil changed in my car the other day and the woman behind the counter was all alpha.  She gave every indication through her body language, her... Continue Reading →

The Power of Community

Good morning! The last couple weeks have been completely unbalanced and unpredictable.  From the time changing, to a massive blizzard, to Qwade being in the hospital, to being stuck at home for 10 days for his lungs to heal, to broken computers and stolen bank information.  Seriously...sometimes there are no words. Have you ever walked... Continue Reading →

Staying Pliable

Good afternoon! I spoke to a group of girls at a rodeo bible camp a few years back about being "pliable".  (easily bent or flexible; yielding, adaptable, adjusting readily to change) At that point it was a new thing for me.  I was pretty set in my ways... I had done things the same way... Continue Reading →

You hem me in-behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.  Psalm 139:5 NIV Good morning! Sometimes our days can run out of control.  We catch ourselves coming and going and backtracking and unsure of how we are going to get to where we are headed.  Let's be honest, sometimes we can even...

Let Your Light Shine

Good morning! We have the most beautiful, thick frost covering everything here this morning.  It's been a cold, humid, gloomy kind of morning...and then...the sun peeked out from behind the darkness to show itself in all its brilliant ways. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good... Continue Reading →

Let Someone Know they Matter!

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3 Good morning! Showing others love and faithfulness goes a long way.  What's that saying?  Actions speak louder than words.  That is true when it comes to love and faithfulness.  Sometimes you have to...

You Are Loved

We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19 Happy Valentine's Morning! This day can be extremely special for some but it can also be extremely hard for others.  But instead of focusing on the love of our earthly relationships, the love we share with others, I want to focus on the One who...
