When you truly listen, what can you hear? Some frogs singing to their mate? Cars driving past? Time slipping away? The whisper of the wind? The gentle shushing of the waves? Perhaps you are alone with your thoughts. I'd been trying to have a more personal relationship with God and was reading the bible in … Continue reading Listen.
What does it mean to follow? We follow bloggers on wordpress. We follow people on instagram. We follow pages on Facebook. In the real world outside social media following someone is downright creepy and at times illegal these days. But on these platforms we encourage it and welcome followers with open arms! On Sunday the … Continue reading What does “follow me” mean to you?
How great is our God? He is everlasting! THE Creator! All powerful! There's just something about listening to a room full of people echo their heart through song. Praising God. When I hear this song, it reminds me of who God is. The God described in Isaiah 40. This song has been known to bring … Continue reading How great is our God!
A story of how I came back to God. My husband and I met at the pub in 2004. I'd always been a "Christian" but at that stage in my life I was rebelling. Rebelling against my parents and attempting to conform into something "cooler" than myself. This rebellion actually started years earlier. Around the … Continue reading Grace wins.
The journey we have called life is never straight forward. I came across this post and felt the need to share it. Do you know what your calling is? By faith will you obey? I’m yet to discover mine. But I’m listening and waiting. Thanks to “The sun shineth again”.
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” — Hebrews 11:8 NKJV
Life, as you may already know, is full of many uncertainties. Even those that live a well organized lifestyle will agree that there have been moments when life served them with the unexpected regardless of how much planning and preparation that was invested.
Everyday we experience a different level and degree of uncertainty, but I’m sure some will agree with me that the scariest of them all (the one that keeps you up late at night) is the uncertainty about the future; about your career; about your purpose in life.
To those who have found their purpose in life and are successfully living it; I applaud you.
To those who are still faced with uncertainties…

I've received 3 new nominations in March and would love for other bloggers to check out the bloggers who have nominated me. I've decided to try something new here, so I've combined it in one post. The nominations are: Sunshine Blogger Award … Continue reading Blogging awards
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed someone to just say, "How are you doing?" "Are you ok?" Today was a day like that. My littlest little person has discovered that he would like to have his own way. ALWAYS. This is not a cheerful experience when you're at church. So I … Continue reading Compassion.
Not my own words today, however, this has given me a lot to think about today, and hope it will guide others too! Thanks to Be Blesstified!
I once heard a man tell his son in the barbershop, “Son, you aren’t old enough to ‘cuss’. When are you old enough to cuss?
America is obsessed with profanity. The enemy has convinced people it makes…
Words more powerful…
Jokes more funny…
Arguments more convincing…
Authority more authoritative…
Good parents will allow coaches to ‘cuss’ their children to ‘get the best out of them’.
People who deal with those who use profanity claim you have to ‘speak their language’ to get through to them.
Our movies, television shows, comedians, songs and sometimes even those in authority reinforce a culture of profanity.
God said very clearly that we are to not allow corrupt, unwholesome, coarse language come from our mouths…
Ephesians 4:29 (NKJV)
