After gaining victory in the cancer battle, and resting for a space, it was time for the Lord's next assignment: a book. He sent a mind-capturing Scripture. Isaiah 62:10 began appearing everywhere, but what can you do with a Scripture like that: “Cast up a highway in the desert for my people”? But I was obedient and phoned an engineer asking , “How do you build up a highway?”. Once the enginee...Read Full Post »

Good morning, my Lord! I am so blessed to call You “my Lord”! Who am I that You should be mindful of me? I am Your servant, Lord; yea, unworthy though I am, You have called me daughter, adopted me into Your family. You are my Father, God, and I love You. You are so good to me! You love me despite my weaknesses and mistakes. Your love is perfect and all encompassing.
David asked a question similar to mine;...Read Full Post »

Morgan Freeman is doing a TV series on finding God. I find that amusing that a man who is an atheist is trying to show people how to find God. He is traveling all over the world looking at various religions to see where to find God. Why do I find it amusing?
We know there is a God. Just a study of what we know of this world and His creation is logical proof that things did ...Read Full Post »

God knew what He was doing when He put a Mom and a Dad as directors of a family. Father is the head and Mom is the heart. I can see that played out so well in our household. My parents loved each other and worked as a team in raising us kids.
I remember the suppers we shar...Read Full Post »

The phosphorous grenade exploded just as he was about to let go of it. The destruction was horrifying. The soldier lost his ear, his eye, flesh from his face and body. Yet by sheer will and the support of a loving wife, he survived to begin a retreat for wounded warriors.
Each spoken or written word is a grenade of potential power that can be used for building up or...Read Full Post »

As evening arrives, excitement brews. Night's awaited darkness brings promise of unusual fun times~
Long twigs holding sticky sweetness are thrust into the dancing flames of the campfire. The ancient brownie tradition, s'mores, is enjoyed by another generation. How fun to watch the young eyes sparkling in anticipation of the gooey dessert, as th...Read Full Post »

Suffocated by noxious fumes, terrified by gunshots, the crowd, once excited to watch a new Batman movie, wanted nothing more than escape.
Evil came calling in that theater after midnight. Stealing lives, crushing hopes, bringing an onslaught of pain and suffering to victims, families, workers, and a city. To us evil is no stranger. He came at Columbine and Chucky Cheese. And this dark night’s deed brings not just its own hurt, but awakens hurtful memories from other ni...Read Full Post »

Almighty God, as You knew the Gunnison river would dig a mighty canyon over eons, and the designs of the walls of the canyon would be a splendor to behold, just so, You have a design and a plan for each of your children's lives. Sometimes we have difficult challenges and painful times to go through, but You are right there to guide us. After many years we too develop grandeur and beauty in who we become as Your plan is carried out in us.

I look at my nails all glittery and pretty. My hands are still hands of age not youth. Yet my fingertips glow with sparkles; may they give You the glory Lord!
May my life glow and sparkle with Your love so people will want to see You as they want to see my shiny fingernails. Let it be so.Read Full Post »

Memorial Day weekend. Looking at a sea of gravestones with an American flag standing tall before each one was a moving experience. There was an atmosphere of reverence encompassing the whole area. An older gentleman had brought a chair and just sat quietly before a grave. I wondered about him and the memories of his loved one he was reliving. I wanted to go up to him, but their was almost a shield protecting his privacy. So with a silent prayer for him, I walked on.

Yesterday, I stepped back for a moment, and saw myself like a little mouse running here and there gathering a days' worth of stuff; feeling the pressure to get accomplished all that needs to be done before. . .
Life gets so busy and sometimes I am guilty of forgetting ‘little things’, like to say please, and thank you, and sometimes to just stop for no reason and say, “I love you”. Seems time has sped up and ther...Read Full Post »

Let me never be too busy to spend quality time with You, Father. I can tell it’s been awhile, when I hesitate to go to Your throne room. I am sorry Lord. Holy Spirit, thank You for reminding me and convicting me. Being with You is always a time of refreshment!
Some time ago there was that song ‘Cats In The Cradle’ of the little boy and his dad and every time the boy wanted the dad to play with him the dad was always too busy. When the boy grew up the roles ...Read Full Post »

Soft breeze, feeling like the breath of God, gently brushing my face, palm trees and tropical plants, birds of paradise, and a clear blue pool entrance my eyes as I sip a special brew. It’s quiet now this early morning. The Saturday night revelers are still in slumberland. The very softness of the air intrigues me. I could be seduced into staying here; well, ...Read Full Post »

FIRE! Fire consumes. Fire eats up dead wood. It feasts on dried out branches and weeds. It has a beauty that strikes awe and fear into the human heart. Fire reaches out and grabs all within its reach.
Fire also brings warmth and light. it cooks food. It crackles with happy laughter. A campfire is a place of cheer and togetherness. In the first aspect it is out of control. The second it is watched and directed with care. It can be a gift and a curse.
In the spirit fire is passion. ...Read Full Post »

Another month has fallen off the calendar, a new month is marching relentlessly on! This truth has been gnawing at the edges of my mind ~ the last months are gone, truly no longer available. How would they stack up according to attaining God’s plan in my life? What have I accomplished for Him? How has my meeting time with Him each day been going? Am I truly focusing on just Him, or am I allowing distractions to lure me away from our precious communication?
Looking...Read Full Post »

This past week was a real testing time for us. Our little home was in pretty much chaos with remodeling work being done. It required all our dining room things to be moved into the living room; the kitchen also was unusable. Had to wrap up and box all the treasures from the hutch. It was time consuming work. It was 5 days (that seemed like a month) before we were able to move back into the dining room and kitchen; that too was a big job. . . and a test.
As I reassembled the...Read Full Post »

Well my beloved, we have walked this life road together for 47 years so far. It has been an interesting time. We embarked on this journey with mind and hearts committed to a marriage of forever. Our journey started out in Chicago, and the first thing that surfaces in my memory of that time is the birth of our oldest child ~ on my birthday. But then like a movie rolling, other memories come into view. . . like a couple of weeks before we were married on a hot humid night we met with the i...Read Full Post »

Hearts are mourning and tears are falling as people begin to realize the depth of destruction they have suffered from the terrifying fires sweeping through our mountains this week. Many lost almost everything material that they owned, as well as somethings non-material like memories stored in photos and computers, thoughts and perhaps books stored on computers that were burned up. Some are stout and surface with thankfulness that they and their families are alive and well! Others lost somethi...Read Full Post »

Kinda in a sentimental mood today thinking about my Dad. What a good man he was! I remember as a small child when he came home after a hard day at work, we would rush to greet him and take his overcoat to hang up for him. He always used a special sturdy curved hanger. We had to learn which way to put the coat on it. Do the shoulders go back as we are suppose to stand? Or do they curve forward? Funny how that old memory came back just now :))
Saturdays with dad were fun for m...Read Full Post »

Our recent experience with nature's battle between Spring and Winter caused me to meditate on life. I really thought by May Spring would have won it’s right to exist; but winter refused to give up, so we began the new month with winter’s cold and snow; however Spring continued to valiantly battle; so by the weekend warmer temperatures did prevail. I believe the same war is being waged in the spiritual world as well.
