Our Righteousness

He told them he had a better way, and then he showed it by living it out, day by day. Even through the hard.

Facebook Perfect Lives

I started out my morning pretty happy.  I got snuggles from my toddler, my oldest came in to say good morning and get a hug.  Then my Dude came in and explained to me that he “didn’t drop it, there was just too much gravity.”  He never did explain to me what exactly he didn’t…

Blessed Isolation

Friends, this situation is so hard. And unfamiliar. And out of our control. We have the right to feel all of those things. We then have the obligation to feel the feelings, acknowledge them, and move on.

I Know How It Ends

I don’t know who needs to hear this today, but I know how this ends.  I know who wins.  Good will prevail.  It may not be today, but at the very end, where it’s important, good wins.   God wins.

Appreciate the Pause

My first husband suffered from…

A Call NOT to Judge

So maybe, rather than worrying about Sally, maybe we should help her.  Or Joe.  Or Jane.  Or someone whose name you don’t even know yet.  Maybe you’ll be the one to change their entire world.  And maybe you won’t even know it.

Spread the Love!

It feels as though the whole world is a little less friendly these days.  As all the groups are protesting all the other groups, and as all the politicians bash the other politicians, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in spreading it around.  One little click of a button, and you can feel as…

The Invisible Fight

Before I even fully accepted the love of Jesus in to my heart, He was there. He was right beside me. And He redeemed my mistakes.
