You Are Not Alone

Happy Monday! Wow!  What a past 18 months or so it has been!  We have been up and down and all around. For a year or more, we were pretty isolated, seeing very few people outside of our own household.  For quite a while, we were even missing our church families.  Children couldn’t attend school…

Memorial Day

It’s Memorial Day. I know it’s a day off from work for many, a three day weekend, just calling for a camping trip and a perfect day for having friends over to grill hamburgers and hot dogs or barbeque something.  I don’t blame you! I do, however ask you to take a little time and…

Forgiveness

Happy Monday! As we come to the final run of yet another month, I pray that each of you end it with a clear conscience and a grateful heart. I came across something a pastor friend wrote some time back.  It serves as a very good reminder of just how easily we can get off…

Fortunately, as Christians, we know that these are things we don’t have to face alone.  Our Heavenly Father is right there with open arms.  He WANTS to take…

Spring Cleaning

Happy Monday! We have been talking a little about healthier eating and healthier living.  Last week, a friend asked me to remind her this week to clean out her pantry again.  Here’s the reminder for us all! As we clean our pantries, look for things that are loaded with Trans Fats, MSG (monosodium glutamate) and…

Grace Changes Everything

Happy Monday! You may have noticed before that I have become a fan of Becky at So Very Blessed.  She has an amazing insight from her own personal journey. For those of us who have battled the weight loss journey, this may sound familiar.  You beat yourself up with guilt and shame and when that…

It Is Finished.

It is finished. That sounds so final, and it was.  How difficult it is for me to accept that though.  The past, the shame, the sins just seem too overwhelming.  How can it be finished? It is finished because He said so.  He paid the price, He bought our freedom with His life. But then,…
