The Lord is My Strength and My Shield

The Lord is my strength and my shield. I need to remind myself of this.  There are days when everything I have to do is basically pushing a rock up a hill. A really steep hill. The effort is almost too great for me. The journey is just taking too long. Does it have to...
Be Thankful for what you have!

Be Thankful – Today!

No matter what is facing you today - Be thankful. There is so much that God does for us every day. And I know that I spend a lot of time focusing on what I don't have instead of what I do have!  I have a lovely home. My family is healthy. My bills are paid. I have...
Let God Have your to-do list

Let God have Your To-do List

The dreaded to-do list. It grows by the minute. By the hour. It is so easy to beat ourselves up when we don't accomplish everything on that never-ending to-do list. But things happen. Illness, cars break down, a family member needs your attention. Life doesn't just...

Gotta Have Stuff Blues

I have the Gotta-have-stuff blues. I want so many things. Financial security. A cleaner house. A healthy body.  I would also like a new couch, new car and a month-long trip to Hawaii, too. I do want things. Some days I look around and just wish - things were...

Peace on Earth Good Will Toward Men

Oh Holy Night the stars are brightly shining

Oh Holy Night

As the weather gets colder and evening comes sooner, it seems like the stars are brighter than ever. Seeing the beautiful night sky reminds me of the song Oh Holy Night.  I am always in awe of how beautiful a clear night sky is. When I was young we lived in a small...

Christmas is Coming!

Christmas is coming!  I love Christmas - the real Christmas. The beautiful hymns. Decorations. Church. Family. The smells and sounds of Christmas. But I love it most of all because it is about Jesus. About God coming to dwell with us. To live and walk with us. That...
Lord Make me an instrument of your peace

Be a Peacemaker

If ever there was a time when we need peacemakers - it is now. So much anger and resentment and rage in our world. In politics, in the church, between men and women and young and old. Everyone is certain they are right and the other is wrong. We have drawn up sides....

Must Have List for Traveling with Chronic Pain

When I hurt my back several years ago, I kept thinking it would get better. But unfortunately, that didn’t happen.  I now suffer from chronic pain. After a while, I stopped doing many of the things I used to love to do. Travel was one of them.  But last year when I...
