Luke 6: 17-20 "He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all&nb...
There are some morning that I wake up and it seems, before my head ever leaves the pillow or my feet even touch the floor, that my flesh is a roaring lion and my spirit is a meek little mouse. Today is one of those days.This morning old battles, that I thought were long won, have risen up to be fought again. Loneliness. Jealously. Insecurity. Blata...
I am awake in the middle of the night, with anxious questions running through my head. I removed myself from bed as a courtesy to my husband, and am writing now in an attempt to apply Peace to the storm brewing in my mind.Side note: I just LOVE the Middle-of-the-Night God.

I am not my kindest or gentlest self when I am under this kind of stress and pressure, with this long of a To-Do list.And just as I was finished...
I'm so excited about this post, I can hardly contain myself!!!!!!One of my dearest friends and her husband have recently bought a VERY old and run-down house. The kind of house that needs to be stripped to its frame and built again. (Lord bless them! Better them than me!)As part of the rebuilding process, they had to examine the structural componen...
The last few months have been a whirlwind for me and my husband - the good and the bad and the wonderful all rolled up together. We traveled to Ireland to see family. We walked through some serious illness with family members. We began training for a marathon. We suffered injury. We visited amusement parks and beaches. We worked long hours. We play...
I was reading this morning in Luke (yes! still in Luke!) and I stopped for a bit on the passage about building the house on the rock or the sand.
