Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16


Welcome to Wednesday...the middle of the week!


I can not begin to thank all of you for the support, encouragement and prayers you've given our family since this day last week. I've been on an emotional roller coaster ever since...elated on the one hand with celebrating the wedding of my niece, but despair at having to say f...

I am not really sure how to write this entry, but here goes...

I realize many of you know about my sister-in-law who had been battling cancer for over a year...finally said, "Enough!"  She went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday July 23rd.  Our constant prayer is just for P E A C E in all that happens fr...

Therefore thou art inexcusable, judgest; for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.  Romans 2:1

Happy Thursday!

Sorry...I missed Wednesday's blog entry because I spent a good portion of my evening with my daughter and grandson.  Although, I did read the next chapter in Romans.  But as you can see, I didn't get very far before a verse popped out at me!

Judging others....

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16

Happy Tuesday!

My weekend went so quickly that I didn't have time to prepare my Monday morning blog entry.  It also doesn't help that I have started retiring a little bit earlier than before.  So, that just means I have to work on my time management so I am able to prepare these bl...

Happy T G I F!

Today's verse is excellent news! I was looking for a different verse than what I normally focus.  I have  brand new verses to catch my eye.  I really like these.  God is ...

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  Isaiah 40:29

Happy Wednesday!

Well, we are over half-way through the year and I am betting some of you are feeling like you have gone through twelve months, instead of only six.  You feel worn out, fed up...just plain whipped.  It would take you forever to name all those things that did not go the way you imagined they would go at the beginning of 2014.  But, ...

Happy Tuesday!

We are into our third year of sending out these AIM blog entries.  Yay!  My goal has always been to only write when I feel led by the Holy Spirit.  I just don't desire to write a blog entr...

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us...Hebrews 12:1

Happy Thursday!

It's nice and quiet in my house this morning and I can refocus my thoughts for this blog entry. I feel as if I am being prompted to just stick with the book of Hebrews for a little bit...not sure how long.  It is some...

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.

Happy Wednesday! 

This was one of those entries where i started one way on Tuesday evening and had to scratch it all and start a different way Wednesday morning.  I believe this entry is the one that should have been written anyway because it's been floating around in my head all day.

There are those times when we tend to get consumed with the way we do thi...

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  Psalm 91:11

Welcome to Thursday! 

Even though I seem to be going through a bit of physical, mental and emotional turmoil so far this year and I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God has His angels closely guarding me, keeping me lifted up...smoothing (if that's a word?) my future bumps and bruises.  Normally I would be writing an AIM blog entry every week day....

And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.  Psalm 78:35

Happy Monday! 

This wasn't a bad weekend.  I managed to do quite a bit of writing on the story for my Drama Ministry at church...very exciting...and right up my alley.  I also did some work on my home business. But, the most interesting part of my weekend was going to the beach on Sunday.  Yes...I did say 'going to the beach'.  And I did have f...

In God will I praise his word; in the Lord will I praise his word.  In God have I put my trust; I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.  Thy vows are upon me, O God; I will render praises unto thee.  For thou hast delivered my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?  Psalm 56:10-13

Welcome to Tuesday!  This past weekend was a blur.  I am pretty sure you will agree with me when I say how busy I was or ...

Happy T G I F!!

It's here again!  Yahoo!  I love Fridays, if for no other reason then to regroup for the week that recently passed.  There have been so many instances that have compounded together to keep me on my knees...which may be what the Lord intended for me to do.  The latest instance is not really going to show itself until after an upcoming medical exam o...

Wow...that weekend went fast!  But, I feel extremely accomplished.  I delivered orders and picked up new orders for my home business.  Yay!  I got quite a bit of writing done this weekend for my church's newsletter (June edition).  I feel really good about that! I attended two wonderful church services on Sunday and did announcements ...
