Welcome SPRING!! I love the first day of spring. Most of the time it doesn't usually feel like spring, and I know many of you are dealing with winter snowstorms, still. BUT spring IS on its way in so I thought this cute little picture of bunny friends and colored eggs...

Welcome back friends! One good thing about sleepless nights is that they give me lots of time to pray! I try not to get out of bed, if I can help it, and have been using that time to pray for you all! I don't know you all by name but I do know that the Lord loves you...

Are you walking in the fullness of your identity in Jesus?

Are you walking in the fullness of your identity in Jesus?

Walking fully in our identity as Christians. What in the world does that mean? And what could it possibly look like? Do you even know what your identity in Jesus means? Over and over again, I find myself confronted with lies we believe. I find it in my own heart, in...

I praise God that He is the Great Physician! This past week I've struggled with the flu. I seldom get sick. Maybe every couple of years I'll get a cold. Sometimes I get headaches that can send me to bed. But I can't remember the last time I've been down with flu....

His light and truth… what do they mean for us?

His light and truth… what do they mean for us?

Meditations from the Psalms. Oh send out Thy light and Thy truth, let them lead me; Let them bring me to Thy holy hill, And to Thy dwelling places. Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And upon the lyre I shall praise Thee, O God, my God. Ps...

It’s been a long time! Teaching What Is Good Linkup #228

Well, it's been a long while since I've posted or hosted my weekly linkup. December tends to be a busy month for most of us and I decided I needed to take a break and get some winter prep done at home. I was able to paint my living room and den, have a lovely holiday...

Well, I have been away from blogging for a bit. This is that time of year when things get busy. Busy with church, busy with family, busy with holiday preparation and busy with home planning. I don't know how much blogging I'll be doing in December. But I'm glad to be...

Teaching What is Good Linkup #226

It's been a messy weekend/week. My heart was broken (yet rejoicing) with the passing into Eternity of one of my dearest friends. I pulled out my hip. Driving, driving, driving, Rawhide. And on a spontaneous (and possibly stupid) whim, I decided to paint my living room...

The pain of death and the joy of victory!

The pain of death and the joy of victory!

"But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory. O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?” The sting of...
