Sacrifice. That is today’s Five Minute Friday prompt – and one that takes my thoughts into many different directions. I’m sure I could write much more than five minutes would allow; however, that somewhat defeats the goal of this weekly link-up. Yes, I express my thoughts on a topic, but FMF is also a mental… Read More Considering My Why?
Currently. I enjoy this monthly link-up but I missed joining the party in January. But I can still get my “currently” thoughts into a post. If just for the sake of remembering. And I need all the help I can find with remembering anything these days. I will catch the actual link-up next month –… Read More Currently: January 2020
I have a fairly good sense of direction. For the most part, if I have been somewhere once, I can get there again. And, almost certainly, I can retrace my route and get myself home after I’ve traveled somewhere new. This “little skill” has helped me numerous times and has not only given me confidence… Read More My Way…or His?
Resolutions. You either love them or hate them. And, apparently, whichever opinion you have….feelings can be strong! However, even those who shun resolutions often embrace goals, themes or words for the year that help them focus. Very similar – but somehow different. Just what is it that makes us hesitant to formulate resolutions? Or goals?… Read More Looking for Open Doors
Welcome, 2020!! I love beginnings. The beginning of a new week (yes..Mondays!). The beginning of a new project, a new chapter, a new season, a new month or even a new series. The beginning of a new day is the absolute best:) I am a lover of mornings!! The expectancy that comes with the new… Read More A New Word for 2020
It has been a while since I posted and I suppose, without intention, I have taken a little holiday blog break. While I don’t regret a break, I do miss writing, posting and connecting with readers and other bloggers….and wanted to make time to express my sincere wishes for a blessed Christmas to each of… Read More Celebrating His Birth
It is December. Advent has begun. The Christmas season is officially in full swing. (For many, the stress is as well.) I’m looking forward to these holiday weeks too. But, before I completely forget Thanksgiving, a quick look back at last week’s holiday…which not only was special but is also one of my favorites. So,… Read More Thanksgiving 2019: A Recap
Hello Friday! And time for another Five Minute Friday. Today’s prompt is COST. The amount paid to buy or obtain something. Immediately I think of the cost Jesus willingly paid for my salvation – dying to cover the payment I owed for my sin. And I would be remiss if I did not mention that… Read More Free To Be a Servant
“Lord, grow my faith.” That is a prayer that has been on my heart lately. Not exactly sure why it has been there repeatedly and so strongly, but I am convinced that examining our “growth” is a good exercise. One to be done regularly – just as carefully as parents assess the physical growth, and… Read More The Unknown Can Growth My Faith
I had a special afternoon recently. I had lunch with two “old” friends. My friends aren’t old but our friendship is one we enjoyed years ago – when our children were all very young – but life carried us in many different directions. Now, we are all in completely different places but are once again in… Read More Encourage Someone To Shine
