Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so... Continue Reading →
Are you looking for some hope?
Happy February everyone! I hope the first month of this year is treating you right. If not, then I’ve got some hope for you. Many of us made resolutions and most of those people who did, have given them up so far. I didn’t make a resolution this year. I haven’t made one in several... Continue Reading →
Happy New Year 2022
Today is the last day of the first month of 2022. I have been trying to decide what to say about what I learned last year. I began the year strong with a desire to live the good life (you can see that here). However, I thought it would be better if I made specific... Continue Reading →
I’m back! I’ve decided that it’s time to come back to the blog. I posted last week because I was moved, once again, by images of human trafficking.

You know those days where you have an appointment first thing in the morning, then the coffee pot didn’t... Continue Reading →
Where Are You?

All around me life is changing - all day every day. There is only one thing that remains the same. Only one thing that is constant. One... Continue Reading →
Regular Everyday Ordinary Life
Hello, my lovely friends! Oh my gosh, it’s been about a month since I checked in. My plan in July was to post twice a week with an encouraging verse, song, or praise. Just anything to say “hey, don’t give up.” Well, I didn’t quite make it. You see, we’ve moved from Ohio to Arkansas... Continue Reading →
You Are Chosen
Hey friends! Today is another day of encouragement! I am loving doing these posts for this month! I know that halfway through the year, we can review and see that we’ve made some mistakes, gotten off track, or even abandoned those resolutions from January. Around here, we don’t judge any of that. Just start where... Continue Reading →
