The Titus Two woman – in many ways like the Proverbs 31 woman – can be misunderstood. Taken from the passage in Titus, she is the aged, or older, woman and even that first description can be confusing. Is this passage just for those who are drawing social security? And what exactly is her role? … Read More Do I Need a Mentor or a Role Model??
Yesterday morning, I received a text from a friend letting me that her church was having spring revival meetings and she knew that one of the guest speakers was “one of my favorite preachers.” Friends just know you like that:) I do so enjoy his preaching….and I very much enjoy revival! When I responded, I… Read More Lessons of Revival from the Garden
It’s Good Friday. Such a heartbreaking day when you consider it. The day we remember Christ’s crucifixion. The utter hopelessness that it entails. Not just complete sadness but the fear – the dread for the future – that those at the foot of the cross must have sensed. Our days can also easily be filled… Read More Victory is Mine Because of the Resurrection
“Just another Monday.” I suppose all of us have had that thought – or a similar one – more than a few times. A day with nothing out of the ordinary planned. A day that is “a regular ole Thursday” or any day you find mundane. One of the reasons I so enjoy Mondays (and… Read More Needing Him to Provide Daily
This third week of March can be a tricky one. It seems to happen often. Spring rolls in and shows off in the most beautiful of ways. Warm temperatures, buds galore and plenty of sunshine.

It has… Read More An Acrostic on Heaven
Just a heads up…a little bit of photo overload in this post. At least, for me. I know many, if not most, enjoy lots of photos (I am one of those who enjoy blog pictures) but I typically do not include too many in my own posts. Not sure why. Well, actually I am. My… Read More Twenty-five Days of Gratitude: A Recap
Waiting. Just the mention of the word can make many of us cringe. Or, at least, sigh deeply. Even when – or perhaps especially when – we have the head knowledge for the value of waiting and God’s promises for those who will wait (and will wait well), the actual waiting can still be so… Read More Do You Wait Well?
Live in the present. Have you noticed that “being mindful” or “living in the present” is very trendy lately? I hear (or read) the reminders and the admonitions almost everywhere. It seems f the phrase or idea is used to validate just about any everyday choice – from the worthwhile to the ridiculous. But that… Read More Let the Past Have Its Place
