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.

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 […]

Second: Resources, Opening My Eyes to See Chronic Suffering

SECOND: RESOURCES, OPENING MY EYES TO SEE CHRONIC SUFFERING … … … … … I wanted to pray but had no idea what to say, as if struck dumb by my own pain. Groans became the only language I could use, if even that, but I believed it was language enough for God to understand. […]

Saturday… Waiting… Where is My Hope?

Job 30:26 But when I hoped for good, evil came, and when I waited for light, darkness came. Hope is a double edged sword. Walking through Holy Week, we think along the lines of so many events… It’s so busy! Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem while His people worshipped and called hosanna, He cleansed the […]

They Live(d)

Published by under Links,Motherhood

Like this morning when my husband and I were in the kitchen getting breakfast ready, and we glance into the living room to see three living children lying on their tummies side-by-side reading books together. It is a moment that I see somewhat often, and […]
