• Come and Sit

      “…Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile…” Mark 6:31 (NLT) Although retired, I always have things to do; decluttering, cooking, paying bills, running errands, keeping appointments…. Recently, I had just gone over my “To Do” list for the day; online church, wash a load of clothes, bake pumpkin blueberry muffins and boil eggs for…

    “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)   I started my Nehemiah Challenge last week and quickly discovered without a plan, I could not get much accomplished.

  • Clarity and Peace

  • Come Away for A While

    “Then Jesus said, ‘Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile…’ ” Mark 6:31 (NLT)   I have been in a fog for a while.

  • The Power of One

    “Each one of you will put to flight a thousand of the enemy, for the Lord your God fights for you, just as He has promised.” Joshua 23:10 (NLT)   Today, as I blanket myself in numbness watching the pain that engulfs our country, the idea it only takes one comes to mind.  It only takes one to shock our…

  • Answered Prayers

  • Kind of Tired of Being Scared.

    “As for me, I look to the Lord for help.  I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light. The Lord will bring me into the light, and I will see His righteousness.” Micah 7:…

  • God’s Got This

     “Don’t be afraid! Stand still and you will see the Lord save you today…You only need to remain calm; the Lord will fight for you.” (Exodus 14: 13-14 NCV)     I talked to Billy Sunday morning. He is recovering from surgery and said, “the past few days have been rough. But I think the worse is over.” I agree…

  • Hanging in There

    “The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,” your love, God, took hold and held me fast. When I was upset and beside myself, you calmed me down and cheered me up.” Psalm 94: 18-19 (MSG)   Thanks so much for all your prayers for Billy.
