The Refiners Fire

Today, I am meeting At The Well…and the discussion centers around sharing a story about how you have found complete fulfillment in your biblical purpose? For the last three years – since I became a grieving mom – I have thought much (MUCH) about “my purpose”. What could God possibly want to do with me… Read More The Refiners Fire

I Miss You, Buddy

One of my real favorites…this picture of Tyler with his sister, Erica, taken at her rehearsal dinner. Tomorrow marks Tyler’s third Heaven birthday. Three years it has been since he left us…and waits for us in Heaven! Almost more than my brain can grasp really. That means three years… Three years since I enjoyed his… Read More I Miss You, Buddy

Flood Waters

This week’s Bible reading included Psalm 61…one ofmy favorite psalms – especially verse two“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” The dictionary defines overwhelm as “to submerge or to bury….” something that completely covers us –… Read More Flood Waters

Such an answer to prayer and I truly want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind thoughts and inquiries…which actually leads me to my Thankful Thursday thought today – burden bearers. I opened… Read More Burden Bearers

Be Gentle with Yourself

I so tried to post yesterday. In fact, I spend quite some time setting up a really neat Christmas post (that required lines to be in a specific order, etc.); however, when I publish things, so often the spacing is all changed and it does not look at all like I planned…so frustrating! But typical… Read More Be Gentle with Yourself

The Broken Chain

I’ve been thinking about Tyler…..maybe more today..or perhaps again today…or simply always. I was given this poem from another mom missing her boy. I have not been able to locate the author but I wanted to share it. It expresses my heart today. The Broken Chain We little knew that morningthat God would call your… Read More The Broken Chain
