Heed The Warning Signs

When The Storms Of Life Come
Published
May 6, 1965 began as an unusually hot and sunny day in Minnesota but it would go down in meterological history as "The Longest Night". I was only four years old but I clearly remember the look of relief that flooded my father's face when...
The Unexpected Road

Run To Meet The Giant

  A couple of months ago I wrote a blog entitled Facing The Giant in which I recounted the story of David and Goliath. In re-reading that story earlier today, I noticed something I had not noticed the first time.  As the Philistine moved closer to...
For What Do You Seek
Published
  I re-read a blog by @watchmanjohn this morning entitled The Window The Rope And The Basket. It is a blog well-worth reading over and over again for it is far too easy to do what a friend of mine calls "seeking God's hand rather than His...
God Has You

In December 2007 I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) which is a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Unlike other breast cancers, there is no hormone therapy for it and whereas the five year survival rate for most breast...

Guard Your Mind

  Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) The word translated as "heart" in Proverbs 4:23 is "leb" (Strong's Hebrew 3820) and can also be defined as inner man, mind and will....
Fully Rely On God

A few years ago, I was at a banquet at which a cousin of mine was the keynote speaker. She gave each of us a frog like the one pictured to the right and informed us that the frog was to remind us of the acroynm F.R.O.G. which stood for "Fully...
Now What If

The following words jumped out at me yesterday:  Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone. Colossians...
Get Rid Of The Junk!
Published
  I had a garage sale last week and got rid of a lot of stuff. There was one small problem however. After it was all over, there was left-over stuff that nobody wanted. Sigh... Nothing was beat-up or broken. Everything worked/looked fine but the...
Garage Sale Musings
Published
Every spring our townhome association holds an annual garage sale. In the past, I have been unable to participate due to being otherwise engaged the week the sale has been held. This year however, there were no conflicts so my husband and I decided to...
Watching My Father At Work
Published
One of my earliest memories was sitting on my father's lap with his drawing board in front of me. He would take a blank sheet of paper and place it on the board. Then he would pick up a pencil and begin to sketch. I would gaze in wonder as an...
I Can't Believe My Eyes
Published
Only a week ago I was peering through the window at a foot of newly-fallen snow. Then the snowplow came along and thoughtfully deposited even more snow in my front yard. Sigh. The snow began to melt on Tuesday and when it did, I discovered something...
Facing The Giant
Published
This morning I read a written by  @bethy entitled  Thinking On Bravery   she makes reference to the story of David and Goliath. Her blog caused me to think about the various "giants" in my life that I have faced over the years and how...
The Long Winter
Published
It is the evening of April 14th and the snow is still falling. It has been falling all day and in fact, we are under a blizzard warning for the next 24 hours. At times I have barely been able to see my next door neighbor's house and there is...
Walking On Water
Published
For the past couple of weeks the song, Walking On Water by NEEDTOBREATHE has been going around and around inside my head. Every time I hear it, I think about a print called Perseverence by Thomas Kinkade which hangs in my bedroom. While I was...
Leaving All To Follow You

In the 5th chapter of Luke, Jesus commands Simon Peter to push his fishing boat out into the water. Peter complies for that was a simple thing and Jesus preaches to the crowd on the shore from the boat.  However, Jesus then tells him to go further...

Through The Storm

In early September 2014, I told my friend @blest goodbye and headed for home. Her husband was in ICU at the time and I delayed my leaving as long as possible that day. Shortly after leaving, I ran into a terrible traffic incident and was actually...
When You Hit A Roadblock
Published
It's a beautiful day and you are zooming along an open road. If you are like me, you are probably singing at the top of your lungs, simply enjoying the view even if it is endless miles of corn.  You're zipping down the road contentedly when...
The Missing Detail
Published
Last May, after my husband finished graduate school, I gave myself a present. We were on the "pay-as-you-go-plan" and had been for the past three and a half years, turning every penny not only twice but at least 10 or 20 times. My 17 year...
