Giving Thanks

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

I am so thankful this Memorial Day for the freedoms that I have. You see, I tend to allow life to distract me from recognizing all the sacrifices that have been made for me to be allowed to have all the freedoms I possess being a United States Citizen. I think that especially in this day and age, where we tend to expect everything in the blink of an eye, we don’t realize what those freedoms have cost. Just as our blessings as a Christian, it’s come by the shedding of blood. Continue reading “Giving Thanks”

Memorial Day 2017

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

Hi friends,

I’m going to keep it brief today and ask you to keep in mind what this weekend is all about. Not barbecues or parties but remembering the sacrifice of those who lost their lives (and continue to do so) for our country (USA).

That Is What God Is Like!

“For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever and He will guide us until we die.” Psalm 48:14

I have allowed life to get in the way this past month or so with my Bible reading. It may seem silly but it really does have an effect on how I feel and how I behave. I am, most definitely, a crankier person lately-with very little patience. Continue reading “That Is What God Is Like!”

Harvesting

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:9-10

My husband and I spent the day yesterday planting our garden. I cannot tell you how excited I am for this time of year! I love to have my hands in the dirt planting the veggies we will enjoy later this summer and fall. Continue reading “Harvesting”
