Simply Sunday-If We’ve Ever Needed You

Simply Sunday-If We've Ever Needed You

I hope you've had a good weekend! Sundays are busy for us but I'm always thankful to be able to go to church and worship. I love being with my church family! This song by Casting Crowns was recently sung at one of our services. It's several years old but still relevant today. The song is, If We've Ever Needed You. I'm not a pessimist but it just … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday-The Bible

Simply Sunday-The Bible

{source} Here's what I've learned about the Bible: That reading God's word prepares me not only for today but for tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after, and the day after that and so on and so on. Through reading the Bible, we come to know Jesus who is the bread of life. John 6:35 says, Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

I found this coffee mug in the hospital gift shop (I've spent a lot of time in the hospital this week with my family members). It looked so cheery and springlike, I decided to get it. I also loved  what it said, "think happy stuff." It reminded me of my daughter when she was young, and I would tuck her in bed at night. She was always afraid she … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday-Hold Me

Simply Sunday

My husband took this picture of Colt with his Iphone. It's not the best picture or the best quality but this is what Colt does all the time now. He stands right in front of you, puts his hands up in the air and opens and closes his fingers. He's saying, "I need you to hold me!" It's the most precious thing and there's no way we can say no … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday-Should’ve Been Me

I'm so thankful for Sundays! I've been listening to this song, Should've been me all week. Some songs seem to say exactly what I'm thinking. I can never thank God enough for what He has done for me. I wonder at times why He's so patient with me. I mess up more times that I care to admit. So today, I'm thanking God for the should've … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday~Live the Best Life You Can

laura black

I love Sundays. Actually, I need Sundays. I need a day set aside to worship. Oh I know I can worship anywhere and anytime. But there's something about corporate worship, surrounded by fellow believers. We come together as redeemed sinners, each with our own heartache, our own joys, our own problems and we fall before a Holy God and we … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday~Jesus, Friend of Sinners

Good morning friends! Over the last several weeks, a song has been on my mind. The song is by Casting Crowns and it's called, Jesus, Friend of Sinners. The words are powerful and my favorite line is, "Oh Jesus, friend of sinners,  break our hearts for what breaks yours." I want to see what Jesus sees, don't you? I want to care about … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday~A Promise of New Life

Mom's grave

Yesterday my husband and I stopped by my Mom's grave. I miss my Mom terribly but I know without a doubt, Mom is in heaven. That doesn't make me miss her any less, and for some reason I have a need to go and visit her grave regularly. I can't explain it except that that is the last place I saw her earthly body and sometimes I just need to go … [Read more...]

All the while, you will grow as you learn to … [Read more...]

Simply Sunday……..Cry Out to God

{Photo credit} This week I have more than once felt the need to cry out to God. Life has ups and downs and I'm continually reminded how much I need Jesus. Today spend some time in worship and praise Him for who He is. I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your … [Read more...]
