always faithful

I have wanted to write for weeks. Each time I begin to formulate what I want to say in my mind, it seems so incomplete that I stop. Wait for the ideas to materialize into a cohesive entry. As you can see, the wait has been a while. Maybe I just need to dive in… […]

what i know to be true

This week has been so very emotional. Last Sunday I walked into church with such a heavy heart. The situation in Iraq had me shaking; angry, sad, hurt. The message was exactly what I needed, isn’t God so awesome like that? It is just like Him. It was a reminder to be combat ready. We […]


the last few weeks have found me limping along. I had so many plans for all I was going to do and accomplish while I was working from home and undergoing treatment. Instead, I have found myself exhausted. I have cut my hours back at work; using up vacation days I scarcely feel that I […]

Prayer for Christlikeness from joyful mysteries

Dear Jesus, Help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go; Flood my soul with your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so completely That all my life may be only a radiance of yours; Shine through me and be so in me That everyone with whom I come in contact May […]

one day at a time

So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:34 Rest has been a long standing issue with me. I mean I can be lazy, but real rest, always seems elusive. I don’t take the time to sit back and let God be God. […]

shaky knees

Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Today I see the oncologist. This is the easiest appointment we have had so far, yet somehow, it has become […]

little annoyances

if you are not careful, you will let little annoyances not only change your feelings toward someone, but they will steal your joy and take your eyes off of Jesus. we have an annoying situation, someone is not stepping up, doing their part. Not acting like the adult they are. Their actions or lack there […]

Brokenness #spiritualwhitespace

Jesus- is this cancer/health situation bringing back feelings of not good enough? Less than? I feel like I am fighting again. I am focused not on YOU and who YOU are, but instead on what I am and what I am not. I find myself judging, accusing, being critical, especially of myself. Of my failures. […]

what a difference a week makes

a week ago I went through the lumpectomy. I am/was surrounded by prayers and love. I felt absolute peace about the entire situation. I felt/feel so loved and lifted up. but sometimes when I go through something, I start off really good and then I forget that it isn’t me doing it. I have spent […]
