Just What I Needed

If you’ve been reading my posts over the last few years, you know that life has felt kind of overwhelming at times.   It has even felt at times like there was no way to get out from under this huge cloud over me. Here’s a quick recap for those who dont know:  I had…

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.

My Cup Runneth Over

I have decided today to actively look for my blessings. I have heard over and over the belief of many that what you look for is the only thing you will see. For example, if you are certain the world is out to get you, you can easily fill your days seeing nothing but that. So, it follows that if you spend your day looking for the good things, you will see nothing but that. It’s certainly worth a try. What’s the worst that can happen? You have too many blessings to count so the floors won’t be swept. I’m up for that!

The Least of These

I pray that we would let go of the images we have built up of ourselves. Whether they are good or bad, I can promise they are not how God sees us.

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.

Time Out

In my last post, I wrote about what it was like to lose my first husband to depression. And I really wanted to touch on it again, especially considering the world we live in today. The village is so often missing from our lives. Our support systems are most often found online. And while these…


Whether you are new here or have been reading for awhile, I think you’ll be able to relate to this. We all have baggage we carry. Movies and TV shows make jokes about the large suitcases we take with us wherever we go with things from our childhood, teen years and early adulthood. What they…


I am planning to take you through my journey of unpacking the baggage and tossing out the things I carried that weren’t important and true anymore. I’d love for you to come along and hopefully inspire you to unpack your own bags. Let’s lighten the load together.
