Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday

Today, Palm Sunday, marks the beginning of of Holy Week. It starts with Jesus riding a donkey into Jerusalem, where a hero’s welcome awaits him. The streets are lined with people waving palm branches and singing. They’re ready for him to be their King—but Jesus’ purpose is far more significant than gaining political status and power. Today … [Read more...]

Sunday Encouragement-Facing Life Storms

Jesus is in control

March is usually the beginning of warmer air which causes some instability in our weather around here. One week, we can have a snow storm and the next week thunderstorms. I'm always amazed at how quickly a storm can pop up. Life storms are the same way. They can pop up quickly! Death, financial difficulties, family issues, marital problems, a … [Read more...]

Sunday Encouragement-Come To Me

Come to me....

We have had such a busy few days. As I was thinking of scripture today this is the one that kept popping in my head. Anyone feeling a little weary? Anyone have a burden? Do you need rest?  Scripture reminds us that there is someone who we can give our burdens to. Someone who can help us if we are weary today. He can give us rest. His name … [Read more...]

Sunday Encouragement-Grace

Sunday Encouragment-Grace

Grace......the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it. If you have been given grace you have felt the blessings. You know of His faithfulness. It's nothing deserved but freely given. So thankful today for grace! Where would I be without it? (I've shared this … [Read more...]

Time is precious. We are fragile. Life is short.

Life is short

I was reminded again how fragile life is. I was scanning Facebook when I read that one of my childhood friends had passed away. It took my breath away. I kept reading it over and over thinking someone was going to say it wasn't true. Although we hadn't seen each other in years, we connected a lot through Facebook. It seems like yesterday we … [Read more...]

Join us as we Love Like Him!

Love Like Him

I'm excited to announce that Traci and I have finally picked the next Bible study we are doing, it's Love Like Him, and we hope you will join us! Valentines Day is coming up and I thought a study on love would be a great one to do. This "love thing" that Jesus talks about can sometimes be hard. Matthew 5:43-47 from The Message … [Read more...]

My Blogging Journey

look I am about scripture

I wanted to share with you a little about my blogging journey. Some of you know I lost my Mom the first year I started to blog. My Mom was the one who introduced me to blogging. She had no idea what a gift she was giving me before she passed away. God had a plan! I'm a dental hygienist by profession but I didn't love dental hygiene. It was a … [Read more...]

31 Days of Winter Fashion

Happy Hump Day! It's Day 28 of my 31 Days of Winter Fashion and I'm styling my military jacket. Last fall, I styled my military jacket with my black ponte pants and brown riding boots. I love my military jacket styled this way. I also shared a post on How To Style A Military Jacket. So why all the fuss about this jacket? Well, I'm not sure! … [Read more...]

True Beauty Begins On The Inside

true beauty begins

One of the things I talk about a lot around here is beauty begins on the inside. It's part of the reason I do a Beauty for the Heart each day. But what does beauty on the inside look like? By the world's standards a beautiful woman is about what she looks like on the outside. All of us at one time or another have gotten caught up in the lie that … [Read more...]
