“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:33, 34 NIV) First Hand… In a world where wrong seems right…people need the Lord. I love this song, well written before seeing first hand how real this has become. A song holding special meaning beyond, sung at our wedding. David is here with me. David, what does this song mean to you? “This song means what it says- no matter what is […]

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under Heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV) Surreal I’ve used the word surreal many times this past week, describing my feelings toward two graduations in our family. Deciding to make sure definition lines up with what I thought, bizarre is not accurate. Two masses in one day yesterday and one graduation a success. If ever a time to feel seasons changing in our family, time is now. Freakish My oldest moves to Texas this fall to attend Texas A&M- Galveston. My second child begins high school, leaving my daughter to […]
He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures.” (Luke 24:44,45 NIV) Monday! Motivating Monday! A great time to be alive! Jump up and give me five- go ahead and do a little jive. It is Monday after all. I love to spread joy on Monday. It’s kind of like the Old Testament- they both get a bad rep. Look to Monday with […]
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. (Psalm 18:2,3 NIV) Territory Protect the doughnuts! Lord, please protect. I am serious. The bliss that comes with the territory. The territory we arrive when surrendered to God’s will. Does a box of doughnuts have any spiritual implications? Not really- Yet, God loved us to die on the cross for our […]
Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it out to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6 NIV) A poem When circumstances swirl around… news has us in a stare. Take this step of faith, if you’ll dare. Little ones sing “Trust and obey.” Adults sing, “Power in the Blood.” Dead bones rise from decay. Teens cheer somber days are gone. The light draws us near. His radience glistens about. Warmth of His power, His incredible power. A gift we must seek. Seek til we find… Jesus will be on […]
Now the King was attracted to Esther more than any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. (Esther 2:17 NIV) Esther won favor Ladies you are loved and have won the favor of our Lord, Jesus Christ. He is the King of all Kings. Men, think about how this applies to your wife/future wife. Esther won the favor of King Xerxes and became queen. She did not go to the palace one day and […]
Depart, depart, go out from there! Touch no unclean thing! Come out and be pure, you who carry the vessels of the Lord. But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard. (Isaiah 52:11,12 NIV) God be with me Last Thursday, I faced flying by myself. On the way to the airport, this verse came to mind. I asked God to be with me. In my spirit, I heard, I have already gone before you. OK! David waved goodbye and I was […]
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7,8 NIV) Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers all wrongs. (Proverbs 10:12) Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8) Happy Valentines! Love is in the air! It is everywhere! What are we to do? God’s Word is true! We must love, We must love? A simple task it seems… a few we want […]
