He Yet Lives for God’s Glory

It has been brought to my attention three separate times over the last ten days or so that not everybody knows how Nate Wilson’s surgery turned out and how his prognosis is at this point. My bad! Life has been busy to the point of chaotic-with-good-things. And, to be fair, nobody posted anything in the […]

Teaching People…

I have been contemplating a lot about teaching lately… Everyone says that there comes some kind of slump at the end of February… it seems to coincide with spring fever! So I decided to talk to myself, and pray with my Lord, about things quite a bit this week. I finally got tired of constantly […]

Adorned

Published by under Beauty,Blogs,Thoughts

          Last month, I had the sweet opportunity to host a little online party for LillaRose hair accessories, with my friend (and LR consultant) Kristi.

Savoring Friendship & Cookies

It was obviously an early day of spring. Grey clouds and blinding sunshine danced together. Robins were bouncing happily around outside while it rained. The fire roared in our living room stove, schoolwork was spread on the table, the baby was fussing, and the big kids were doing anything but focusing on their books. I […]

The New Commandment

This morning over at Olive Tree, I have the privilege of sharing some thoughts on the new commandment Jesus gave His disciples before He was captured. After Judas left Jesus and the other disciples at the table in the upper room, some of my favorite parts of the Holy Week narrative take place. They are […]

Giveaway Winner, #4!!

Like the rest of life, even things like online giveaways don’t always go as you plan or expect! Right after I discovered the winning comment, our power went out… which means no internet (nor lights nor water, etc)… and it did not come back on for over thirteen hours. So, please forgive my tardy post […]

Grief Has Become Part of Me

Living through grief takes courage. Looking back at the darkest parts of grief takes courage. Living life after grief takes courage. Looking ahead to see that the darkness isn’t always so thick takes courage. Isaiah 61:3 …to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning,     the garment of […]

July 4th Meditation

Courtesy of our pastor-friend Toby Sumpter, be exhorted and encouraged on this July 4th. …Here’s the deal: the peace of God was announced by an army of angels that came down and woke up a field full of shepherds at night. The peace of God filled an old man in a temple with a song […]
