She Will Be Missed

Last week I lost a friend. I lost her to death. It is a sadness that is hard to explain as I know  she was such a strong believer in Jesus, and had been a widow for years. I know she was getting tired. Tired of trudging through each day wondering why she was still […]

All Yours

What can you do with feelings when they over run you, when they bombard you with ferocity? My eyelids burn with the pressure of unshed tears. My heart aches. I have no power to change what assails me. I cry out as David did in the Psalms. I ask God to take away the burden, […]

A Christmas Gift to Remember

The Christmas season has finally wound down and I feel like I can finally relax a bit. When you are married to a pastor and work in the church office, Christmas is actually the busiest time of the year. Easter is also a very busy time, however it does not come with as many expectations […]

Tis’ the Season

Tis the season to be… Some would say jolly, some might say caring or kind or giving. I say it is the season of waiting, of expectation, of hope. That is what Advent is all about. It is the time before Christmas when we remember that a baby is coming. A very special baby. One that […]

Driven

I am driven. Moved to do more, be more, step up and make a difference. The problem is I don’t know where to begin, what to do to make this huge difference I feel compelled to make. As I grow older, I often notice a sense that I am missing something. But, when I honestly evaluate all I […]

Submit or not to submit? That is the question.

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Colossians 3:18-19 I can remember sitting in Bible class when this passage came up and I heard the collective gasp of hostility run through the women present. It was like the leader had […]

Tension

I decided it was time to at least get some thoughts down as I have had NO traffic for a couple of days!! Anyone who knows me, knows that if it is morning and I am at work, I am eating peanuts and drinking coffee. Not the best breakfast, but it is at least packed […]

Good Girls Can Be Naughty Too, aka; Maybe You Could Choke Me Just a Little?

My husband and I were talking about where I wanted to go with my newfound skills of speaking, and whether or not I was going to delve into the topics of Christianity and a healthy and fulfilling sex life. And he jokingly said I could call my next blog post “Maybe You Could choke Me […]

Listening.

Sometimes life gets in the way of writing. I miss my times when i can just sit quietly and let my words flow out of me. I have had so many wonderful things going on that I find writing falls by the wayside. I am working with a new Bible study group and planning to […]

Beginning Again

I have returned from the speaker’s training I attended. I am tired and glad to be home, but I was filled with so many wonderful new thoughts and ideas while I was away. I want so many things in this life I have been gifted with. I want to have the opportunity to pass on […]
