Because We All Have Bridges to Cross

I see life  in pictures and believe a soundtrack should be playing in the background throughout most of the day.  My husband once said if I ever wrote a book it would be mainly pictures with quotes and verses.  I'm a big fan of addicted to canva,  picmonkey, and the  Fontlab app  for photo editing and… Continue reading Because We All Have Bridges to Cross

Thanksgiving and the Pile of Stones

This thought has been rolling around in my head for a long time (pardon the pun !) ... this thought about the significance of the pile of stones. It all started when my husband ordered a truck load of gravel  to be dumped in our driveway last year. Stones ...  Remember ... God. I kept… Continue reading Thanksgiving and the Pile of Stones

Is there a burning bush in your back yard?

I'm in the middle of reading "The Tangible Kingdom"/primer , by Hugh Halter and Matt Smay and I keep getting "wrecked".    There just happened to be a reading from Exodus chapter 3 & 4  about Moses and the burning bush.  You know that phrase, "That's when I had my 'burning bush' moment !"?  … Continue reading Is there a burning bush in your back yard?

Joy Comes in the Morning

"Weeping may endure for a night,  but joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5  (NKJV)  I wanted you to know that it's true !  It's pretty certain we will have trouble in our lives and it's pretty certain there will be weeping ...but joy really does come!   Ironically, I could have also entitled this post, "Joy… Continue reading Joy Comes in the Morning

Here …But Not All Here

It's hard to believe I'm sitting down to write tonight especially since  this morning I could barely get out of bed.  The dark cloud of deep depression, exhaustion and feeling trapped inside my little house due to the heat and humidity have just gotten the best of me today.  Our plumbing is backed up --again--and… Continue reading Here …But Not All Here
