We Comfort Our Children, as the Lord Comforts Us

May is officially here. This was supposed to be the month of celebrations and graduation parties. I knew this month would be hard, but I didn’t realize just how hard. Celebrations Will Happen! Over the weekend, my husband and I headed to five different stores in search of the perfect chairs to put on our…

Today Let’s Rejoice, Be Patient and Be Constant!

It’s day 3,198 of our shelter-in-place. Ok, it’s not, but it feels like it! It’s been an emotional roller-coaster these last few days. The governor extended our shelter-in-place for another month. My sons are missing their classmates and are ready to be done with e-learning, and I am done with the same routine over and…

Guess What? You Cannot Hide from God!

When the COVID-19 shelter-in-place hit, no one was more in shock than Bailey, our soon-to-be 14-year-old cocker spaniel. His routine days began with scrambled eggs for breakfast and watching my husband and boys leave for work and school. Bailey then proceeded to peacefully nap while keeping one eye on me as I worked around the…

All to Jesus I Surrender!

“I surrender all, I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.” As I was working in my office on Monday evening, I heard the sweet lyrics to this song being sung from Grant’s room. For the past three and a half years, this song has been sung by my son and…

A Cheerful Look Brings Joy to the Heart

It was in the middle of last week when I knew that I needed a significant change in attitude. Standing on our deck, dressed in oversized black sweats, a baggy t-shirt with an oversized gray cardigan and sunglasses to block out the sun; my look matched my attitude. Dull and gray. I didn’t even bother…

Be Watchful! The Enemy Loves Seeing Our Fear!

A thought occurred to me late last week. The enemy loves every minute of this. Take a minute and think about it. Being confined to our homes causes tension among family members, resulting in some hurtful words exchanged. We have not set foot in our churches for three weeks, and worship is now in our…

Five Bible Verses to Pray Over Your Adult Children

“You’re a parent of an 18-year-old!” my friend said as I walked over to her. Her excitement was contagious as others joined in, and for a split second, I regretted any mentioning of it. As I held back the tears, I wasn’t offended at all by what my friend said. Grant did turn 18 on…

What Can We Learn from Mary Magdalene?

She had gotten up early that Sunday morning. Her heart was heavy, and her sorrow was profound. Her Rabonni (teacher) was dead. He suffered the most extreme execution known at the time. She was part of the small group of followers that stayed with Him through it all. His disciples, except John, had abandoned Him.…
