I kind of laugh at this story. Because I really didn't expect this to happen, or plan for this to happen. A few years ago, I wrote a blog titled "How To Break Down Your Barbie Dream House". I played with Barbie's growing up, and in college, me and two friends had Barbie nicknames. I [...]
Psalm 23. One of the most familiar psalms I have known my whole life. I still recall the melody of this psalm that we sang in Sunday School. It is a nice psalm, but in looking at it more, I am realizing more of its meaning. Specifically, in regards to a phase in Psalm 23:3, [...]
When I think of the Kings daughter, I think of a princess. And of course I think of all the Disney movies, like The Little Mermaid. King Triton loved his daughter. He seemed gentle and kind, but went above and beyond to help her in her time of trouble, even being willing to sacrifice Himself. [...]
I found this file on my computer this week, and realized I never posted this anywhere. I wrote it 3 years ago, but the truths stayed the same. It is the story of being a prodigal daughter, and the God who says to us "Daughter, you are now home." When I followed Jesus in high [...]
She is usually the go-with-the-flow child. The comfortable in most situations child. But when Olivia gets uncomfortable she comes and sits next to me. She will then tell anyone who tries to play with her that she just wants to sit by her mom. This year we put her in camp, and usually, she likes [...]
"The Lord is my solid rock, my fortress, my rescuer. My God is my rock. I take refuge in Him! He’s my shield, my salvation’s strength, my place of safety." Psalm 18:2 How many of you believe that? How many of you know that? You know the promise that He is who He says He [...]
I just wanted to break into tears, watching as our governor gave an update on the state of how schools will be opening in the Fall. I want my children to go back to school, it has been hard for them to be away from their structure, and friends. But I have a really hard [...]
Yes, I am writing about it. The coronavirus. It is one of the big things taking up the spot light in the news. As I write this, there was one confirmed case of the virus at our local hospital, and there have been actions taken to prepare the school system in our town to close for 2 weeks. That is a decision that will probably come in a couple days the latest, but I am guessing they are waiting to see if this thing is going to spread in our town before making a firm decision.
As I watch the news, and see what is being posted on social media, it can be really easy to fall into fear about this thing, and I know that so many people are.
But before you read more, I want you to consider who
or what you go to as your source of truth?
Sometimes I think I am crazy. And today is one of those days. My husband is two rows up from me on a flight down to Florida, and if I told him that I wasn’t going to take my anxiety medicine to help me to be calm on the flight, he would have definitely said [...]
People have often told me that I have a great memory. I can remember some things others can't. Like the fact that when we were kids, my grandmother's friend Norma, used to stab us with safety pins when we didn't listen. I remember hiding behind the bed one day, because I knew she was going [...]
