9.11.99

“Today would be have been my 22nd wedding anniversary. It’s a weird day for me. It’s a monumental day for our country. It’s hard for it to slip by without me noticing. And all the flags remind me of how 5 years, 9 months, and 19 days later, the police chief laid a folded oneContinue reading “9.11.99”

Shoulda, Coulda… Woulda.

What’s the moment you run back to in your mind? We’ve all got one. Maybe you run back because you think you could have changed something? Maybe if you said something different or made a different decision, would life be any different? I have a couple of these moments. And I’m learning how to letContinue reading “Shoulda, Coulda… Woulda.”

Don’t Beg For The Key

“Trust God. Let Him close doors.Let Him open doors. And when He closes them…don’t start begging for the key.” As I was sitting in my quiet time early this morning that is the thought that came to me. And then as blog posts normally do, my mind and heart flooded with words. I’ve been aContinue reading “Don’t Beg For The Key”

It’s Not Cancelled…

“Oh, what we could be if we stopped carrying the remains of who we were.” – Tyler Knott Gregson Moses, David, Rahab the prostitute, the Samaritan woman at the well… just to name a few. God used them in amazing ways despite their pasts, despite who they were or what they were working out withinContinue reading “It’s Not Cancelled…”

Morning Devotion: Only God Can Complete You.

The longing that you feel, the empty spaces within you… whether you are single or in a relationship… will never be filled by another person, even if they are perfect for you. Because you were created with a soul that longs for its Creator…and if you will let Him, He will complete the work HeContinue reading “Morning Devotion: Only God Can Complete You.”

Divine Appointments & Chocolate Milk

I truly believe God puts people on our path. I also believe if we aren’t completely wrapped up in our own nonsense, we notice. This happens to me often. It might happen more often but since I’m human, sometimes I am wrapped up in my “stuff” and I fail to see an opportunity to witnessContinue reading “Divine Appointments & Chocolate Milk”

Evening Reflection & Prayer

This is not the time during Lent when I normally read these verses, but I just needed to think about this tonight. I needed my eyes on Jesus and I needed His agenda firmly in front of me…I thought I would share. It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour hadContinue reading “Evening Reflection & Prayer”

The Bigger Picture

I wouldn’t call myself a control freak. I mean, I wouldn’t call myself that. (Haha) But I could understand if someone else might recognize my struggle. I don’t have a control issue so much with people as I do with details and circumstances in my life. I pray everyday for God to have his handContinue reading “The Bigger Picture”

Sacrificing the Snooze

I’ve walked with Jesus long enough to know that choosing Him means He is always present. Even when I hit the snooze button, pray a minute and fall back asleep. On my walk with Him thus far, I have also learned that I will always need Him. Especially, when my alarm goes off and IContinue reading “Sacrificing the Snooze”
