You Control the Doorway

Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!” We’ve said that, but did we REALLY MEAN it — “words will never hurt me”? Actually, there have been times that words DID hurt. Someone spoke negatively about us or something we did when we gave something our all, or someone spoke…

Use the Gifts God Has Given You

Jesus told the Parable of the Talents — a story He taught to help us know the importance of using the gifts and talents He’s given us. When the servants used their talents wisely, the Master said, “Well done, good and faithful servants …enter into the joy of the Lord!” And to the one who…

Lord, Please Give Me Patience….NOW!

Our generation seems to have little patience for waiting. Road rage is seen when there’s someone moving way too slow in traffic.

God Takes Pleasure When We Take Pleasure

Yesterday was planned around Alexia — some girl time, her getting to choose where we would eat for breakfast and dinner — being pampered at the nail salon, her picking some great decor’ for her new bedroom, getting her “Fall Harvest” costume — it was a “by design” day that continues to celebrate her Rite…

Worry is Like a Rocking Chair

In the words of the great philosopher, Erma Bombeck …“Worry is like a rocking chair: It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” From first hand experience, I can tell you that statement is true. I’ve done my share of worrying…..and it never got me anywhere! I realized that it is…
