Courage in Chaos
Waves roar as I first stroll along the beach, then sit on the end of the boardwalk and watch. The red flag snaps in the wind and I clutch my hat to my head as I walk along the waterline. I do not walk in fear. Nor does the momma fear as she holds her […]
Following the Master
Check out what I learned about emulating the Master in the video below.
I got up early this morning and went out to prune my rosebushes. I plant the southern standard, knock out roses. They are hardy. They bloom and rebloom all summer. However, as the summer wears on they get more and more stingy with the blooms, unless you prune them! And one hard truth I’ve learned […]
My Feet Hurt!
I am that girl, the one who always loved beautiful shoes. I notice shoes, and can guarantee that I will notice yours. Did you know that the University of Kansas even did a study on what shoes say about you? Well, today, I’m wearing a pair of decidedly unpretty shoes with orthotic inserts. Why? Well, […]
What It Takes to Really Experience Change
Twice a week I go to a deep water exercise class. After several months I’ve begun to see a pattern. There are those who come to work out and there are those who come to tread water and chat. The working out group are getting stronger and hardly miss a class. Some of us are […]
Light In The Dark
Now is the time to shine! Don’t let the news of the day drag you down. Do not submit to cultural norms. Remember who you belong to. Remember the promises you have been given. Don’t fear change. Just keep your eyes focused on the light then you too, can be the light just as you were intended to be.

She loved the beautiful blue on white pattern that graced her table. Sometimes, I’m sure that others thought she overpaid […]
Getting it Right
My nephew and his wife have a new baby. Today, he wrote an eloquent post on their family blog about the challenges of balancing life, the changes they find in their thirty-something lives and I heard the unspoken plea, let us get this right! This feeling never really goes away does it? At every stage […]
Finding Your Value
There is a video on Facebook about an overweight young woman who begins to do yoga and it changes her perception of herself. Despite her weight she masters yoga. She says” I’m free, I feel worthy.” While it’s a touching video it made me sad. Sad because I, along with many women, judge my worth […]
It’s a Matter of Perspective
Do you take the short view, or the long view? God always takes the long view. He doesn’t have to do the ‘quick fix’ because he already has the big picture view. I was thinking yesterday about recent conversations with a young friend whom I mentor. When she asks for advise or prayer it is […]
