Power in Weakness

I have felt like giving up on this writing thing since I don't know what to say in my trials. This is a start. A step one to understanding what I'm walking through.

Polar Vortex

It's a comfort knowing that the last time things were this cold was five years ago when one of my sons was born. There were ice dams like a ski jump off the windows in my hospital room. So much for the record setting of 2014. We are about to blow that out of the... Continue Reading →

The Daughters’ Inheritance – on Job’s daughters

A beautifully written article about Jobs daughters from Anne Mackie Morelli. Job gave his daughters a legacy much grander then simple economics and mere beauty. He sought to emulate his God and celebrate their innate worth.

Step 1 in a Fresh Direction

I'm excited to announce I've finally made the connection on Bloglovin! Please find me there! I'm just figuring it all out!

What do you do for Christmas?

There is scripture that speaks to how we celebrate the coming of the messiah. Could this relate to Christmas?

Positivity Monday

Perhaps it's the caffeine talking (I never drink coffee and did today) but I am ready to face the world today! Brace for JoyMonday's are overwhelming. Sometimes just life in general. Yet, today I have a word of encouragement for those of us who need it most. Trial and PeaceI'm in the middle of some... Continue Reading →

Colorado Love

In Colorado I love it. Should I stay or should I go?

Blogtober Burnout

I'm feeling a little burned out over blogging everyday. I'm glad I committed to it though. It's exposed some of what I need to "lay aside" to "run the race" better. Hebrews 12:1

Sunday Morning

A look at Philippians 4 to help focus us on true peace.

Hunting Season

Some thoughts on how I (can't) handle hunting season.

The SAD Days

A day in my seasonally affected life.

INFJ – the Advocate

When taking a personality test can make a difference.

No more baby phase: part 2

I thought our family was complete. Does God intend more?

The Woman, Wisdom Proverbs 4:1-9

Wisdom is a Woman in proverbs. And so is folly. What does this mean for us?

Short Story Sunday: love and life

A story about learning what love really is.

No more baby season

Who knew it could be so hard?

Unforgivable, by Giosue Petrone

The Story A lovely African woman is cooking outside her home. It's mid afternoon and she calls after some children running by. She begins to tell us a little about her family, her ethnicity, and a piece of her life struggle. That's when you notice her movements are a little odd. She seems normal in... Continue Reading →

What is a Woman?

This spoken word performance by Jackie Hill Perry is stunning! You should take the time today to listen to what she has to say about the identity of women. What is a Woman? It all comes back to God, and what He says we are. Praise Him!! Image from Genius with her music, which is... Continue Reading →

Short Story Sunday: Now

Shuffling papers quickly, I finish my passing time necessities just in time to catch a glimpse of her coming down the hall. She has her eyes rolling back and forth from wall to wall and along the floor in between, as she usually does. She moves at a long paced saunter down the hall, stopping... Continue Reading →

Hosea 14

This is the last chapter of Hosea, and so full of hope! God is represented as dew and shadow for the budding spirit within us.

Hosea 13

Another glimpse into Gods wrath against sin. We have a chance to hope in God, or turn on Him in our suffering. What will we chose?

Priceless

Is my investment of time and energy (and stress) worth it? Some hope from Ecclesiasties.

Cluster *

A short musing poem on summer chaos.

Not from Hosea

Just a word of encouragement for those in the trenches.

A moment of pause

A simple praise from the 1600's to bring some perspective for my day.

Hosea 12

Kind of a confusing chapter. When you dig in you can really see the beauty of Hope in God. Our strength leads us where we shouldn't go.

Summer Solstice …

Half way through year and what do you have to show? I'd wager, more than you know!

The Rose of Sharon

The Shulamite is a wonderful example of the romantic depth we can have as humans, and the beauty of Christ's passion for the church.

Racial Crisis

I'm fortunate to have experiences that lend themselves to understanding this time we live in and the social justice frameworks that are being laid out. I hope that this can be the beginning of an ongoing conversatioon about the importance of perspective in racial and cultural issues.

Crisis, the SBC and Me

I have been struggleing through what is happening in the SBC and my own experiences in my church.

Vacay :)

Family Vacation I used to have this anticipation of relaxation. That my husband would take the kids some mornings, and we could have fast food, or convenience food at least. Fairly quickly I learned to live without this dream. Vacations with children are not relaxing. I end up doing more work and getting less sleep... Continue Reading →

Hosea 6

God continues to warn of judgement and prove His faithful passion for His people.

Suffocation, (otherwise known as depression)

A musing poem on Depression.
