Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

It is amazing how things come around again. From birth, my mom instilled a love of books in me. I still have the books from my childhood. Now, my nieces and nephews are cutting their reading teeth on some of my childhood books. One of the many books I loved as a kid, was the…

Be Still and Know

Way back in May, I wrote a post called Amazing Undeserving Love. And it was an in-depth look at the common verse of John 3:16. That verse tends to be quoted so much that we forget its true meaning. If you would like to read that post, click here! Other verses are often like John…

Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Immanuel. Part One

Sunday night was our Christmas program. It was called ‘The Birthday of a King’. And well, that pretty much describes the play. It was about the birth of Jesus, the King of Kings. One of the songs performed was Mary, Did You Know? And that got me thinking about Mary. We don’t have an abundant…

A Little Heaven on Earth

You might be seeing a pattern in my posts; songs. Christmas songs are the most beautiful and wonderful songs of the year.

Not Defined by the World

You could call this post ‘Being a Rebel Part’ 2, because I can’t stop thinking about that post. It’s been a good challenge for me, and I feel like an expansion on the post should be done. We are living in a very negative time right now. There is an event coming up that will…

Always Be thankful – Never take anything for granted

It is September 2, 2020. And while I would love to put the brakes on and hold on to summer as long as I can, I can’t. I can’t ignore the fall decorations, Halloween inflatables, or the pumpkin wagons being parked at the local Co-Op and parking lots. Fall is coming and bringing with it…

Habits: The good, the bad, and the ugly

A couple of months ago, my friends and I did a devotional called ‘Habits’, and since then I have done it two or three more times. It was so good and challenging. It was about how we can change our bad habits into good ones. And the word ‘Habits’ was changed into an acronym to…

Thoughts from a Bloggers Notebook Part 2

Greetings and Salutations! Just because I did not post last week, does not mean my thoughts and ideas stopped coming. My thoughts range from an innocent merry-go-round to a crazy, maddening, out-of-control roller coaster. But, let’s stay in the safe zone…shall we? In the past, I’ve had random posts, and while they are fun, they…

My Battle with Anxiety – And How I Won

I wrote this before I even had a blog, and I kept putting off posting it. Because it exposes a part of my heart, and me, that I don’t want people to know about. But I think it’s time. It is time to share a battle that I was fighting for two, miserable years.  …
