Media Monday – The Beauty Of A Winter Garden

It’s the end of February and often a time for the winter blues.  Today, try and change your perspective by asking for God’s grace to see the beauty that surrounds us no matter what the season, weather, or circumstances in our life.  “He makes all things beautiful in His time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

Foes, Fans, and Friends – Discerning Opinions And Dominions

If our calendars reflect what we love and where our priorities lie, and we are finding our emotional energy is increasingly sapped, it’s time to re-evaluate where and with whom we spend our time and talents. We need to remember that when we listen to the opinion of others, we can forget who has dominion …

The Icicles Tender Thaw

(This post, I thought, was scheduled to appear in March ( so ignore the reference to a few weeks in). I guess God had other plans for it.) As the temperature rises and the icicles thaw, a glistening show appears outside my window.  With each passing hour, its shape and size change and it’s a …

But if you enjoy DIY projects, creating …

Front Porch Friday: Little Hats, Big Hearts

This month I’d like to start something new on the blog – a monthly feature called Front Porch Friday – bringing awareness to social issues in our society, by giving back or paying it forward. To me, giving back takes my mind off of the challenges in my own life and giving me one more …

Media Monday – The Wolves We Feed

I’ve always loved the story of the two wolves, but this original version makes so much more sense.  With Lent a week away, I wonder in which way I will choose to prepare myself for this sacrificial season.  The struggle between good and evil, the struggle between sin and sacrifice – both are real.  We …

Writers Block or Waiting With Wonder?

Sometimes writers block comes from not being authentic; trying to write about things that are trendy instead of what’s stirring inside our soul. Doubt gives way to voices that we allow to take a seat in our head and before you know it the conversation that we’re not good enough or important enough snuggles up …
