I Started…

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

I started my book. I’m not sure how it’s going to all go together or when it will get done or how it will get published. But I started. Will you let me know any topics you think should be included? Also which posts are “must haves”? There will definitely be new stories and material […]

Marriage Monday~Share your Testimony

Monday, February 7th, 2011

March 1976 was a big month for me! I started piano lessons. Playing the piano has been a lifelong love for me. I truly enjoy sitting down to play and am thankful for the discipline my parents chose to instill in me.I was not allowed to quit lessons or practicing. Mom said that I was […]

Last week, I realized I am reading 2 books about grace–Grace for Every Trial & Grace Based Parenting. I wonder why I’m drawn to the subject of grace right now and feel led to do a study on it. When I think of grace, I think of it as God’s strength to get through a […]

Why do we pray?

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

I don’t pretend to be an expert on prayer. Studies and books have been written for centuries on this topic and I can’t expound any better than that! However, I want to share a few reasons why I pray. I’ve journaled in a blank book for several years when I’m studying a topic or reading […]

1 Peter 3:9

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. I looked through my journal this morning to see if I wanted to share anything. This passage and my notes struck me as a good thing to think about for any […]

Hard days~From My Journal

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

*This was written over 1 1/2 years ago–before I closed the store. The last couple of weeks have been hard for me. It’s not easy to explain. I am emotionally fine. I remember sitting in church crying almost every service. Not because anyone hurt me, I hurt so much that it overflowed. A beautiful song […]

Setbacks~From My Journal

Friday, March 6th, 2009

I realized the other day that I hadn’t shared from my journals in a long time. As I paged through them, I was blessed at all the things that I wrote down. It’s amazing how alive God’s Word is. I love how verses spoke to me one way then and they minister to my heart […]

From my Journal~Isaiah 43:18,19

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Many years ago, when I began searching for a Biblical response to the events in my life, I wrote down verses in a journal. If they applied to my husband, I wrote his name next to them. If they applied to my child, I wrote his name next to the verse. If they applied to […]

Praying about the situation

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I kept a journal for the years leading up to this incarceration–before I knew that was how God was going to move in our life.I wrote down things I read in the Bible that could apply to Lee. I quickly realized more of the verses applied to ME! (Imagine that!) Several applied to our child […]

1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. Here’s another entry from my journal. As I was trying to love my husband and be the […]
