• Laughter in the Midst of a Storm

    “Then we were filled with laughter, and we sang happy songs.  Then the other nations said, “The Lord has done great things for them“. The Lord has done great things for us, and we are very glad.” Psalm 126: 2 – 3 (NCV)   Sometimes, it feels good to laugh in the midst of a storm.  Right now, it seems…

  • In the Shadow of the Almighty

      …” Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness…Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you…. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.  For He will…

  • Tribute to “G”

    “The command says, “Honor your father and your mother.” This is the first command that has a promise with it… “Then everything will be well with you, and you will have a long life on earth.” Ephesians 6: 2-3 (NCV)   Today, March 5, 2020, marks the fifteen anniversary of my dad, William L. Chever’s,  transition.  I talk about mom…

  • Who is Really in Charge?

    “Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisors” Proverbs 11:14 (NLT) Today, February 17 is President’s Day and a reminder, to me, that I should pray for people in office. It is also a reminder that the person in office is human and not God.  I used to stress over the decisions made by those…

  • Forgiving is Not Enough

    “The Lord says, “Forget what happened before, and do not think about the past.  Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening. Don’t you see it? I will make a road in the desert and rivers in the dry land.” Isaiah 43:18 – 19 (NCV)   I forgive easily; myself and others.  However, lately…

  • Honoring Bill

    “Therefore encourage each other and build each other up” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) I’ve been thinking a lot about falling lately. I guess because I fell last week.  But all this thinking made me remember a simple phrase used by a cute little lady named, Helen.  In her 80’s she was walking through our woods and we cautioned her to…

  • Listen to Your Inner Voice

    “…. If only you would listen to His voice today.” Psalm 95:7 (NLT) I fell several days ago. I was walking my usual route. I flipped over a small, jagged piece of plywood.  It was a hard, rolling somersault-like fall.  I flipped, sending my glasses flying off my face and my walking stick jabbing me under my arm.  As I…

  • The Struggle is Real, Part 3

    Slowly, I returned.  With clarity and gratitude, the healing process began. I was able to talk on the phone without falling apart.  I could call and ask how others were doing. I could go places and genuinely feel good.  The healing really took root when we attended the private showing of the movie “Harriet;” those hugs were heart connections. Then,…

  • The Struggle is Real, Part 2

    You know how I survived this struggle?  By hope. By gratitude.  My husband, Larry, started the process.  He made a comment that made me pause.  As we were driving, the song, “I’m Blessed,” by Charlie Wilson came on the radio.  I paused as I leaned into his words; he was  singing along to the lyrics, “Ask me  how I’m doing,…

  • The Struggle is Real, Part 1

    “Why am I so sad? Why am I so upset? I should put my hope in God and keep praising him, my Savior and my God.” (Psalm 42:11 NCV)   I know my blog is about relentless faith, but for the past three weeks, I’ve been struggling. Struggling to find a purpose in what has been going on with the…
