When I was twenty years old, I thought seventy years old was OLD!

Now that I’m nearly sixty years old I think eighty...

Woman of Valor Mar 01, 2024

The words woman of valor came to me as I was walking. My vocabulary has expanded through the years, but valor is one word I don’t frequently hear. When I hear a word that I don’t use much in my everyday life I perf up to it because God is speaking to me. I pay attention because the...

God Love for Self and Others Feb 05, 2024

I’m grateful I have others to love.

There was a time in my teenage years I wanted nothing to do with anyone else, except me. I was very selfish, self-driven, rude, and cold-hearted. Those ugly ways in me took many years for God to help straighten out. It didn’t come easy.

Uniquely Your Own Dec 05, 2023

Recently I went clothes shopping. So what?

I don’t like shopping. So that's why it's a BIG deal.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Oct 05, 2023

Mirror, mirror on the wall, why can’t I look at myself at all?

In my past destructive years, I experienced hurt and shame. It was equally divided between self-inflection and the hurtful actions of others. During this dark time, I formed a habit of covering up the pain with my bandage of...

Early Arrival #1 and #2 Aug 28, 2023

“You’re going to have this baby today; it’s going to happen today.” These words coming from a nurse friend replayed in my mind.

One Foot In Front of the Other Aug 01, 2023

“Why can’t you see my point-of-view?”

“It doesn't make sense to me. Why can’t you see my side of the issue?”

The door slams and out I go for a walk with my frustration level high. I may as well be running because I want to get away from the confrontation and...

Battle for Contentment Jun 28, 2023

Are you like me on the conquest for contentment?

I work hard to stay in a mindset of rest and satisfaction, being grateful for all God has given me each day. One day of contentment leads to the next and then I slip into an ease and I slack in the war plan to keep my ground - I skip my quiet time,...

Never Stop Praying Jun 01, 2023

As I sit in my quiet time with God, I try to keep my thoughts from racing, I try to stay calm however my mind is like the movie trailer at the theater.
