Our Present Darkness

As I came into the dark bedroom one morning where the computer/office is now I noticed something in the chair. I reached out to touch it in the dark and it was a group of tiny stuffed animals all arranged just so. One of the grands had been playing in this room and the evidence sat mutely there. I laughed as I switched on the light and discovered which toys they were. Without the light I had no idea what it was. Oh beloved, God speaks to my heart. Sometimes we just have to reach out in the dark. We …

God’s Discovery Channel

God is allowing us to discover new insights and fresh truth. We are entering uncharted territory. Nature has thrown us a curve that science hasn’t even found truth for.   I am sitting here this morning wondering what the message will be and I hear the word Discovery. We love the Discovery Channel. I am more drawn to the nature type shows and hubby likes the science and technology stuff. We have plenty to watch for both of us. Oh beloved, this morning God is giving us an opportunity in this rough season. He is opening up for us a …

Choose a Word

      For the past several years a group of my Facebook friends and I have chosen a word that we feel God wants us to understand more fully.  For one year we pray over this word, study it in depth and most of all we pray over this word. It is once again time for us to choose our word for the year 2020.  In the past I have chosen hope, joy (my favorite), peace, blessing and last year women.  This morning as I was contemplating of my new word the Holy Spirit began to reveal something different …

You Need The Real Thing

Guitars have been part of my family since before I was born. Uncles, cousins and my own children play them. Our middle daughter and our son started playing when their grandmother gave them a small guitar when they were young. That daughter now has one of the best guitars made, given to her by her husband for Christmas. So I laughed as I looked at a portable pocket guitar for sale. It’s just the upper part, the fret of the guitar and it was called a guitar gadget trainer. But I know it can’t do much for you because it’s not …

Only Words

  “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Proverbs 18: 21 We may think that our words don’t impact others. We might think that they may not matter. We may not consider them important. But, we would be wrong. Our words impact others, they do matter, and they are important. My husband, Owen, and I sat and spoke with Lisa while she was staying with us on several different occasions about heart issues. Lisa shared with us the struggles of a being a homeless addict. Owen and I shared about God’s faithfulness to each of us. Lisa …

Coffee and Life Can Jolt Us!

I was intrigued by the new brand of coffee I spied. 50% of proceeds goes to veterans. Loved that! So instead of picking up our usual brand I picked up a bag of this new brand’s Rise and Shine light roast. Well when I made the pot of coffee it was delicious. But within a few minutes My chest hurt and I found myself jittery. I realized that this coffee actually has more caffeine, so I got a jolt to start my day! What do you drink of first thing? The troubles of the day, the losses you have had, the …
