Faith!

...If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto the mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Matthew 17:20b (KJV)

Happy Monday!  We are celebrating here in Cleveland!  Both of our professional teams who played this weekend, came away winners.  And truth be told, both wins were a surprise to me.  I had no idea our Indians would win their last games.  I just...

Get into His Word...

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  Psalm 119:105  (KJV)

Happy TGIF!

Do you make To Do Lists?  Do you always use them?  I am pretty good at using my To Do List during my work day, but for some reason forget to open it up in the evenings.  It generally spends the evening perched near the foot of the tray table by my desk.  I think, or at least try to think, that I have a good handle on what needs to be done that...

A Song in the Night!

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.  Psalm 28:7 (KJV)

Happy Thursday!  OK...so today is one of those times when "I" had something else planned for this blog, but sat down to type and nothing was flowing.  So...I listened for what God wanted me to do.

Have you ever had a song that truly spoke to your heart?  It really squarely h...

I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me.  Philippians 4:11 (KJV)

Happy Wednesday!

Tuesday was another busy day for me!  It's almost 11 pm and I am just now sitting down to pen this blog entry...so you know it's bound to be a short one, but still God-inspired.

There are times when I feel as though I can do anything and there are times when I feel absolutely powerless.  I've been on an emotional high from all the blessings the L...

Being Content!

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.  Philippians 4:11 (KJV)

Hello there!  Happy Tuesday!

Alright so, I thought that was an interesting verse to start this blog off.  Who is really content?  Are you? Am I?  Not always...maybe not even 50% of the time.  That's sad to say.  If we're thin, we wish we were a little bit heavier in certain areas.  If we don't h...

We're Back!

I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.  Psalm 34:1

Happy Monday!

Boy does it feel good to be back at my computer writing a blog entry!  This won't be very long, but I just couldn't wait any longer.

This time last week, I was nursing a bruised and swollen right hand and an extremely sore right side of my head.  I am still sometimes feeling the headaches from my colliding with my kitchen floor. Although&...

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  Psalm 37:4, 5 (KJV)

Happy Thursday!

Sometimes the confirmation of news that you kind of suspected was true may be hard to accept, but a necessary part of the renewing process.  You won't really know how far you have to go until you learn exactly where you stand right now.  The 'fu...

An Amazing Work...YOU!

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28 (KJV)

Welcome to Wednesday!  I have an MP3 player that I listen to at work sometimes and a song came on that made me reflect back to when I was a young girl and all the things I thought would be great for me to do.  There are quite a few years between those 'yesterdays' and today.  And despite the fact there were...

I can do everything through him who gives me strength.  Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

Welcome to Tuesday! 

Believe it or not, we are inching closer to the middle of the month!  I know...it's crazy!  I feel like I am totally behind in some really important assignments on my plate.  I am responsible for creating...pulling together...however you want to term it...getting my church newsletter up and running for the month of October and November 2013...

...and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Mine was spectacular!  I got my hair done, attended a truly wonderful wedding/reception, watched a couple of sporting events (although they both were losing causes...), and finally did some quick paperwork for my business. 

Sometimes in the process of our t...

For thou wilt light my candle; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.  For by thee I have run through a troop, and by my God have I leaped over a wall.  Psalm 18:28, 29 (KJV)

Oh Happy Day!  It's Friday!!!!

I love Fridays!  Although I wish I had gotten more done at work then I did, but I did make headway.  And I was able to accomplish a few other things this week that I really wanted to do.  Saturday is a BIG DAY!  Congratula...

Give us this day...

Give us this day our daily bread...Matthew 5:11 (KJV)

Happy Thursday!

This entry is purposefully short due to my system problems.  This verse from The Lord's Prayer was on my mind a lot during the day Wednesday.  But, the subject of staying focused and not looking too far into the future has been a prevailing thought of mine lately.  Maybe yours too?  There's so much going on that this is probably God's best advice to me.  Take care of wha...

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness; thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.  Psalm 4:1 (KJV)

Happy Wednesday! Alright...take a deep breath and try to catch up.  Do you feel like I do sometimes thinking the days are getting ahead of you?  I tried to not use my To Do list for a few days and I am feeling it.  I've kind of lost track of all those items that need to be done, that should be done by ...

But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and lifter up of mine head.  Psalm 3 (KJV)

Welcome back to work from the long weekend!  I hope you had an enjoyable time with family and friends.

Hopefully, we have seen our last hazy, hot and humid days.  I do not like those kinds of days...probably moreso because my body just likes to do its own thing now.  And I know, this shall pass as well.

Well, for the next month, we will be journeyi...
