Tuning It Out

      Our smoke detector often beeps at us to let us know it is time to change the batteries. It’s chirping is ever present in our home, yet I wonder how long it beeps until we finally hear it. After hearing it, it’s still awhile before we get to changing out the batteries and getting it back on track once again. I realize that I can tune out a lot of things. My children’s whining, deadlines, things that need attention in our home. I can walk right past eyesores and be okay with it, until something happens and …

Changing Our Position will Change Our Prespective

Life happens. Circumstances change, people move on and we’re left to pick up the pieces and move forward. Change is inevitable. Without it, there would be no purpose. But, when the outlook appears dim and tragedy strikes, you have two choices. Wallow in self-pity or change your position.

Fall Devotions

Day 2 Fall – to lose the old, to have its proper place.  This is just part of the many definitions of what the dictionary says “fall” is.   What is crazy is that the dictionary is talking about fall like ‘I fell down’, not fall like ‘the season’ and yet how appropriate the definition is. I love fall!!  The color change, the weather change, the smell change…..its about change.  But to change means that something must go. As I sit here looking out the window with massive trees all around my back yard, I see it happening right now.  Leaves …
