God Gives Us Signs

The office where I work is in the same building as some federal offices. They are not open. And there are more than enough signs on the doors entering the building and their office door that you would know that. Yet yesterday I watched a man come inside the building and attempt to go in that door. The office is dark and the door would not open and again, the signs were there. But he kept trying to go in. Finally, he turned and left. I’m not sure if he ever read the signs. He looked rather perplexed. God gives …

What About That Mountain?

We went up on the mountain this past weekend. The first time my husband took me on the Talimena Scenic Drive was back in 1973 and it was on a gold Honda motorcycle. I should say attempted, because back then there were no trees lining the ride up. It was not so pleasant and finally I asked him to please turn around. We didn’t make it all the way to the lodge then. The next attempt was later and it was some easier for me. Finally, after all these years, it’s a piece of cake. We know that road like …

Helping or Trusting?

I am really good at helping my husband. Sometimes I go overboard. Case in point. He wanted a new/different hammer drill. So he had one picked out and was planning to go to Little Rock to get it. Well, I decided I could order one and get it to the house quicker than he could go get it in the store. I wanted to save time and save him some trouble. My motive was honorable. Only I didn’t order the right kind. I ordered one like he already had. “Don’t try to help me so much” was his reply. Thankfully …

Pork Skins and Scriptures

I have become a Connoisseur of pork skins. They come in so many flavors and they’re a really good high protein low carb alternative to potato and corn chips. I noticed on a new brand that I purchased there was a scripture at the bottom of the package. So I went onto their website and found more information about the company. Turns out they also have a page of information called Everlasting Life. That’s right, they share the plan of salvation. Here’s what they say – Every person has two great longings and inward needs. The first is to be …

Hiding Something?

A friend of mine has developed shingles. This is a very harsh illness that generally springs up during high stress times for those who have had chicken pox. Her physician told her as long as it’s covered up no one should catch it from her. Aren’t we like that? We have hard times, disturbing diagnoses or family troubles. We may share with close friends or family and we hope they will join us in prayer for healing. And it’s as though you hear the enemy say “as long as you keep it covered up”. Oh beloved nobody is totally immune …

Prized Possession

    Prized Possession     We went to Danny’s first outpatient rehab after we got home. They had many questions for him. We had questions for them too. After all Danny is a prized treasure to me. I have only his best interests in mind. Peace love and quiet are what he needs now. Along with rehab therapists who care about the patient and will take an active interest in their recovery. We were blessed and excited to find out that we had chosen a place where one on one therapy and excellent state of the art equipment would …

Help From the Sanctuary

Most days in hospital were pretty easy. One particular evening was rough though. Changes were made to help in the healing process. It was a low moment especially for me. But God being God and full of love and goodness He allowed me to see the reality of the Scripture “He sends help from the Sanctuary”. Think about this!!!!!! An angel in the form of a night nurse from Nigeria came in and took his vitals and then began praying over Danny for healing and touching Him and praying the most amazing peaceful prayer I’ve ever heard.  Then she prophesied …
