Amending the Soil of My Soul

I love gardening.  Planting flowers and watching them grow and bloom into the beautiful creation of God they were meant to display brings joy to my heart.  However, planting flowers and watching them gradually slump as they gasp for air and nutrients, eventually turning brown and brittle-- makes me  sad and frustrated. I've gotten pretty… Continue reading Amending the Soil of My Soul

Morning Melody {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

Dear friends, I am NOT a morning person.  There's nothing about me in the morning that breathes an ounce of perky.  I shuffle stumble out of bed to make my morning coffee to jump start the engine for the day.    It's not pretty and it doesn't feel very  spiritual.  Mindless wandering comes to mind.… Continue reading Morning Melody {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

"I'm anxious and overwhelmed!"  was the call this morning -- in tearful conversation --  and what's this  mama to do when the state of things is overwhelming and the reality is that we're states apart -- too many to jump in my van and get there fast enough ! My heart begins to pray. My… Continue reading God allowed the call, the Holy Spirit sent a text, and Jesus knocked on the back door …

The Thing About Prayer

I'm sitting here staring at a blank screen -- wanting to write ...needing to write ...write  about prayer and wondering where on earth to start. I don't have a formula to share or 3  outline points and a song -- just my heart, which usually flows out in pieces that seem to fit together like… Continue reading The Thing About Prayer
