Happy T G I F!

Hello everyone!  Another wonderful weekend is upon us.  Well, this verse is a surprise to me.  I had several other verses, Thursday, on my mind that I thought would be my blog topics.  But, when I opened my bible to a page...this is one of the verses I had previously highlighted, and was s...

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts;  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.  Psalm 139:23, 24

Welcome to Thursday!

We're close to the last weekend in March.  Any big plans for the upcoming weekend?  I am getting the vehicle's windshield replaced.  It really looks bad with that big, long crack across the front.  It kind of kills the look of the car.  A little ha...

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

Happy Wednesday!

What does Peace mean to you?  How do you center yourself in Peace when all around is chaos?

Welcome to Wednesday! 

Somehow I lost a whole week, this week.  I woke up on Tuesday morning fully thinking it was Saturday morning.  That is not to say my Monday was a long, laborious day...but something happened in my head when I went to sleep Monday night.  That miscue to my brain was a bit disconcertin...

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7

Hello Tuesday! 

OK...so Monday's blog entry related to getting into a routine that keeps you focused on those important areas of your life.  However, there are some of us who have a slight problem with routines.  We tend to take them to the extreme, so much so that we very seldomly try anything new or different for fear that w...

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

Happy Thursday!

As I am writing this on Wednesday night, I am praying that the blizzard that blew through today will not make a repeat performance on Thursday.  It was...I can't even think of a good word to use.  A virtual white out.  I was blessed in that I didn't have to drive during any of it.  Afte...

Happy Tuesday!

Alright...so at first I wasn't going to write a blog entry for Tuesday because time was not there on Monday evening.  However, this morning as I was getting ready for work, there were so many thoughts bombarding my mind that I had to write down at least one of them.  So, here it goes...it's no...

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  1 John 4: 4

Happy TGIF!!

'God made me...He made me who I am!'

I heard these words to a gospel song on a CD I have in my car and I loved hearing the words to this song.  I must've played it at least three times in a row. It was like the Holy Spirit was speaking to me in response to a conversation I had with a friend ...

Happy Thursday!  We are  one day away from being able to celebrate another weekend.  Yay!  I was just looking on my calendar Wednesday and noticed there was no 'big event' coming up this weekend like I've had for the past few weekends.  Amazing.  I can actually exhale and try to figure out ......

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

Welcome to Tuesday!  I hope you had a productive, but restful first weekend of March.  Mine was very productive, fun and also somewhat restful.  However we can't forget to throw in some blustery snow for good measure!  We attended, or at least my daughter and I (plus other female members of our family) attended the baby shower of our nephew and new niece to the family....
