Sunday Mornings

It's another Sunday and it still  feels weird.  My church family decided to change our weekly meeting time to Wednesday nights.  Sunday mornings are now free. At first I welcomed the rest.  The truth is, I had become "church exhausted" from so many emotional losses experienced this past year but I realized there is now a… Continue reading Sunday Mornings

The Path of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

During my college days, my sister encouraged me to find a life's verse in God's word...a verse to hold on to that would be an anchor for the days ahead.  Psalm 16:11 became the frame in which the situations of life could be captured and viewed. #WalkingitoutwithJesus has taken me down many paths in the last… Continue reading The Path of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

God Forsaken …{Guest Post in the Journey Through the Season of Lent ~ Week 5}

  When I first started this journey through the season of Lent, I told ask my husband, Roger,  to consider writing a guest post during this series.  Thankfully, he has a way with words and agreed!  His words have weight because I know him well and his heart and character  speak the same language whether… Continue reading God Forsaken …{Guest Post in the Journey Through the Season of Lent ~ Week 5}

Surrender … { A Journey Through the Season of Lent ~ Week 4 }

It's been hard to start writing this week ...partly because it seemed almost impossible to pick one theme to focus on when the daily reading  this week  spoke so powerfully; but partly because the anxious thoughts spoke so powerfully as well -- so powerfully that it was soul-overwhelming at times. Thyroid issues, menopause,  deep grief,  empty… Continue reading Surrender … { A Journey Through the Season of Lent ~ Week 4 }
