Thank You, God, for the legacy of this chair.

And for all the prayers, prayed, sitting there.


Jesus speaks and Matthew records what he says in Matthew 11:6. "And blessed is the one who is not offended by me."

Is that you? Are you offended by Jesus? Are you not offended by him? If you're not offended by Jesus he declares you blessed.

When I was raising my children and a stay-at-home mom I learned something from a Focus on the Family broadcast that stuck with me. I think it applies to today. The broadcast dealt with cleaning your house. The woman made the statement that anyone, no matter who they were or how messy their house was, could get it clean in 7 days. Pretty bold statement I thought. She had a system written out on 3x5 cards. A system with daily tasks, weekly tasks, quarterly tasks and six month and annual tasks.

Today a barrier broke!

I praise God for all the help He's given me, through many generous, knowledgeable, praying friends and family. Thank you!!

He's Got You Covered is my first book! 

Psalm 34:3 invites us to Magnify the Lord together. 

Put God first. Lift up your eyes towards heaven (Psalm 121:1-8). Praise the Lord all the day! I've learned something new. This is how we fight; we do NOT engage the enemy; we PRAISE THE LORD! James 4:7

We have two examples to follow: in 2 Chronicles 15:1-19 with Asa in 2 Chronicles 20:1-33 with Jehoshaphat. However, let's make sure we DO take down the high places (idolatrous altars) this time.

“What are you doing here, Elijah?” 

The Lord asked Elijah this question twice (1 Kings 19:9, 13). Both times Elijah’s answer was the same, which revealed his heart. 

Now Elijah had just experienced one of the greatest show downs of good vs. evil in the Old Testament. This was after the test with the prophets of Baal, dealing with Jezebel and Ahab, and praying for rain after a very long drought. 

We need cleansing for we too get tarnished, especially from neglect.

Facing the Fear Factor with Faith

I like to use acronyms. For the word HUSBAND, the Lord gave me this acronym. I had it made into a framed calligraphy and gave it to my husband for his birthday one year.

I will

Unscale the eyes and unplug the ears,

Another celebration of Earth Day is here.


Your greed, pollution, destruction

Are finished! It’s through!


Hearing my mother say my name, unexpectedly brought tears to my eyes.

Hearing my name, not Sweet, or some other euphemism.

I realized instantly how rare it is these days to hear my own name.
