Could today be the day?

Have you ever noticed that amazing days start out as ordinary days? The day I got my first full time job was an ordinary day until the phone call came with a job offer. The day my husband proposed to me was just an ordinary day until he got down on one knee. The day I gave birth to my children was an ordinary day until my labor started. How about you? Are there big moments in your life that you would call markers that started off as ordinary days? I'm sure Abraham woke up and went about his daily routine [...]

Heat Required!

Do you have a favorite Christmas treat that you make every year? I can't make it through a Christmas season without making sugared nuts. My family devours them.Our neighbors wait for them. I've even had a friend call and remind me this year that he is supposed to be on the list to receive them. I've made pecans in the past, but they've gotten so expensive that I tried a new recipe for sugared peanuts and they seem to disappear as quickly as the pecans. You start with raw nuts. Then you coat them in a sugar mixture and place [...]

Let the Music Play!

Do you know who Anthony Hopkins is? He is an Oscar winning actor. While many recognize him for his many movie roles, such as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, he is also a very accomplished theater actor as well. One of his highest honors was when Queen Elizabeth II knighted him in 1993. However, many of you probably don't know that Hopkins is also a composer. Hopkins composed a waltz called And The Waltz Goes On fifty years ago. The interesting thing is, he had never heard it played. Why, so many of us ask? Why would [...]

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, HOW?

How often do we ask ourselves these questions? If you like me, you ask at least one a day, if not many of the multiple times. This morning, I was reading in the book of Acts and came across Acts 20:22, which caused me to pause: And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there." Have you ever done this? Have you ever started moving forward in a direction you felt the Lord prompting you to go when you had absolutely no clue what would happen or where you'd land? [...]

Does God need your help?

How are you doing?  Seriously, I want to know? Are you in a good place right now or are you waiting on the Lord to step in to your circumstances? Me? I'm glad you asked. I've been waiting on the Lord to do something He promised me He would do. If I'm honest with you, it's been a bit frustrating at times.  I know I heard Him clearly, but I have yet to see Him move in that direction.  The enemy would just love it if I'd allow doubt to settle in or give in to the questions: Did God [...]

Who’s your daddy?

Happy Father's Day, Daddy! Don’t you just love it when a baby is born?  It is as if the Lord speaks in an audible voice saying, “Life should continue.”  My brother and his wife just had their third child, a beautiful, baby boy.  They named him Jacob. In Biblical times, names carried meaning to them.  In Genesis 17:5, God changes Abram’s name to Abraham because it meant father of many nations.  In Genesis 16:11 Hagar was told to name her son Ishmael “for the LORD has heard of your misery.”  In Genesis 32:8, God changes Jacob’s name to [...]
