Today is for Reflection: When is enough, enough?

Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?” ~~Matthew 19:27 When is enough, enough? We are tossing around the idea of getting a new camper. We really have out grown the one we have. We have looked at about four different camper places…

Today is for Reflection: When…..

When words fail to come, comfort, strengthen, heal, encourage, worship and love When hands fail to touch, serve, hold, work, worship and love When  arms fail to hold, comfort, serve, work, worship and love When feet fail to walk, run, move, stand, serve, work, worship and love When all else fails Jesus NEVER fails!! So daily make the choice…

My Family Is there a double standard where kids are concerned? All parents, o.k., I take that back, most parents no matter how strict or loose they parent have certain standards set up for their kids. What standards am I speaking of?

I started reading a  book called Have a new Kid by Friday by Leman two days ago and I am almost finished with it already. It is a very quick read and I am really being inspired by it or should I say I am receiving a good kick in the pants. That’s o.k. though…

                               Comparing………… yourself and what you do to others can really bring on discouragement. It can be so depressing when you read a blog post, an e-mail, articles and books from people who do the same thing you do or are the same thing you are such as; parenting, home schooling, teacher, dad, main breadwinner of the…

Help me to see how good thy will is in all, and even when it crosses mine teach me to be pleased with it. –from The All-Good Prayer in the book The Valley of Vision Wow, what a prayer!!  The person who wrote this knew that his will would not always be God’s will. He…

Today is for Reflection: Friendship

There is just something wonderful about having a group of women or even just one woman who you can spend time with and talk about things you have in common. It doesn’t matter if it’s something as serious as your faith, church, ministries, parenting, home schooling or something as trivial as a movie, book, a new…

Today is for Reflection

This is the second time this week that my creative juices do not seem to be flowing, thoughts are swimming around but they swim right into a dead-end and the result is a blinking cursor, a blank screen and a lot of frustration. Since I have no words to offer today I will leave you to REFLECT on…

The Valley of Vision Lord, high and holy, meek and lowly, Thou hast brought me to the valley of vision, where I live in the depths but see Thee in the heights; hemmed in by mountains of sin I behold Thy glory. Let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up,…

Today is for Reflection

According to most of the world I’m not a “Real”  mom. You see I am a mom through the gift of adoption. One day my sons could decide they wanted to find their “Real”  mom. If that happened and a news crew followed them, most of the world would think “oh, isn’t this wonderfu, another “Real” family has been…

Today is for Reflection

Why do I immediately think of the worst thing when my kids get sick? Why do I pray for God to heal my kids, hubby or myself and while I pray the thought pops up “what if He doesn’t”? Why do I get anxious for no apparent reason? Why do I worry when I know I…

Lord, I do want to be consumed by hunger for you!  So why am I not hungrier than I am? I know exactly why, Lord and I am so sorry for it. You see Lord, I still choose to fill up on so many empty calories. I am not saying that what I consume is all…
