She Fell Off a Cliff…

Yesterday (Tuesday) our 21-year-old daughter fell off a cliff.  We got a call from the Dean of her college telling us that “rescue crews were on the way and we know she’s conscious.” The next couple of hours were terrifying and yet we knew God was watching over her. He knew every one of her…

Broken 

I love being misunderstood, judged, and accused…said no one ever.  Note to my friends: I did mess up. I was wrong. Some things were just poor judgement and others flat out sin! (See my recent blog post Foot In Mouth.)  When this happens, when I mess up or sin, I feel worthless.  But I am…

Foot In Mouth

Also known as sin.  Recently in a lady’s Bible study, I tried to comment on a particular topic. What I tried to say was relevant to the topic being discussed, but what I said came out all wrong.  I did not carefully consider my words. I did not plan what I was going to say.…

Eternal Life

We need to get to know God.  Seek Him.  Spend time studying His Word then apply it in our lives.  Pray. Worship. Talk with Him. Listen to Him.  Do you know the One True God?  We can find healing in our grief.  We find healing, hope, peace, and joy in the One True God. Do…

Monday Night BS

In our Monday evenings bible study, we are going through HIS LAST WORDS by Kim Erickson. She joined us via Zoom and shared her story. It was a great experience! We have twelve ladies from seven area churches in this group. I love discussing God’s Word with my sisters in the faith! His Last Words,…
