It’s Almost a New Year!

It’s Almost a New Year!

When the beginning of a new year is approaching it often causes us to reflect on the one we are about to finish up.  I’ve been doing that myself. Our year started off with a brand new one year old in our home!  Our youngest has her birthday the day after Christmas, how blessed she is!  This year she learned to walk {and run!} and talk and well, she’s simply learned SO much this past year!  Our oldest ended first…

No Room For Fear

No Room For Fear

Last night we had some pretty hefty thunderstorms! Our children had been in bed for about two hours when my husband and I were startled!  Thunder had recently rattled in the sky and our home and woke up our littlest.  The fear in her cry gripped my heart and I ran back to her room to scoop her up. When she saw me come through the door she instantly said, “Rock!  Rock!”  Yes, I am blessed with a little one…

Blessed Indeed!

Blessed Indeed!

Isn’t it amazing how all children have such unique personalities?  This photo taken today at lunch perfectly depicts my three 🙂  I think we may be in trouble with that little charmer there on the left 😉 I am so thankful to be their Mama!  They have taught me so much and have opened a part of my heart I never knew existed until I became a Mama.  When I look at the three of them I can’t help but…

Speak Life!

Speak Life!

We live in an all about me kind world, no doubt about that, but that is not God’s desire!  Have you ever heard of the acronym ” J-O-Y”?  Jesus, others, you!  So today, I challenge and encourage you to speak LIFE today!  Shower God’s grace on those around you!  Encourage and uplift and give God’s love freely and generously to everyone you meet! Mark 12:30-31 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all…

The great things He has done!

The great things He has done!

This morning as I sit on my comfy couch, sipping that precious life giving juice {coffee}, I’m soaking in the words of God from the book of Luke and chapter one.  My thoughts are completely enraptured by something I read!  Isn’t it amazing how ALIVE the Word of God is?  We can read a passage over and over and get something NEW out each time! I’ve read the true story about all the events surrounding the coming expectant Messiah many…

Christmas Time Is Here!

Christmas Time Is Here!

Oh I just LOVE this time of year!  Ever since I was a child the Christmas season was my favorite!  The story of Christ’s birth, the lights, the decorations, the excitement, the wonder!  Oh I just eat it up! Now that I have a family all my own we do things a little bit differently then many.  We never really stop listening to Christmas music during the year 🙂  We decorate earlier than most families, we simply just soak up…

The Potter’s Hands

The Potter’s Hands

I remember one day in college, many moons ago, arriving to chapel and curious about what was on the stage.  It was something I had never seen in person before, but something I had seen in pictures. A potter’s wheel. As chapel began our speaker took his seat at his potter’s wheel and began making it move.  As he took a piece of clay and put it on the wheel, he with ever gentle, careful hands began to mold the…
