A Love-Fest Day With Jesus

My word for today is “Love-Fest” — when two or more people indulge in expressing their love for each other in such a way that it never ends. It is the ultimate expression of deep, true love and respect for each other, usually manifested by an outburst of love expressions that make all involved feel…

Being PLANTED and REPLANTED

My words of the day are: PLANT — sow, seed, place or fix into a specified position REPLANT: To plant again in a new place Seven years ago, this Peace Lily PLANT was given to our family for my husband’s memorial service. What a beautiful representation of “peace” that was given to us. And peace…

Hearing God’s Voice is a Hot Topic

Wikipedia defines GOD’S VOICE as: The voice of God, in Judaism and Christianity, is a “heavenly or divine voice which proclaims God’s will or judgment.” No doubt, by now, I’m sure you’ve heard “The View’s” co-host Joy Behar’s inconceivable words about Vice President Mike Pence’s faith. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another…

Those players are…

Please, God! Take This Baggage!

BAGGAGE: past experiences that are regarded as burdens, cares and weights (i.e., emotional baggage). I made it home from Tulsa in time to quickly change clothes and head to my church for our annual 3-night Lenten Mission where we intentionally set aside the time to dive deeper and lean in closer to God. It’s about…

YES — Count Me In!

Yesterday I received an email asking me to be a “welcomer” at a 3-day Mission at my church this week. I’ll admit I had thoughts of saying “No”, because it meant I had to be at church an hour early each night and because I would just have returned home from Tulsa and, and, and…

Regaining Focus in a World of Distractions

My word for today is DISTRACTION: a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something or someone else; interruption, disturbance, interference, hindrance This post today is longer than my “usual” long post (yikes!) but this message impacted me so much I just had to pass it on — almost verbatim. My pastor started…
