Happy last day of 2016! Looking back on this year, I'm so grateful that the Lord walked with me every step of the way. I know He is always there, but in 2016, I really focused on seeing Him move in my life and in the circumstances around me.
The last few years, instead of making a new year resolution, which I don't usually keep, I've focused . . .
Weeks 3 and 4
Joy and Peace, these are the words for the last 2 Sundays of Advent. I'm reminded of the Christmas carol, Joy to the World, that says, "repeat the sounding joy". I always read that phrase as to repeat the sounds of joy - as in cheer, laughter, or happiness. The sounds of children at Christmas. However, the definition of "sounding" as a noun . . .
Weeks 1 and 2
During this season of Advent, I am reading a daily devotional and paying more attention to the Sunday focus of Advent. The first week we focused on hope. I love Hebrews 6:19, NLT:
"This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary."
Wow, what a picture of the relationship . . .
We have just celebrated Thanksgiving and I was blessed to spend some extended time with my precious family of 4 and good friends! It was so much fun to have time to play cards, eat, go shopping, talk and catch up on each others' lives.
As I sat and reflected this morning on the wonderful memories, I was reminded of Lysa TerKeurst's . . .
Hello, friends! I saw the email from Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on her blog and on Facebook. I knew with work I was not going to be able to write on Friday. So, I started this on Saturday and even though it is now Monday...I still wanted to share with you!
Friday's prompt was "enjoy".
Enjoy - there are so many . . .

Today, I'm continuing my reflections on "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. Chapter 7 is all about When Our Normal Gets Snatched. Wow, that is a loaded statement. I don't know about you, but I like the "known", the "predictable", the "comfortable", and the "normal".
Our normal can get "snatched" from us almost daily..a bad day, a bad report card, . . .
Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 31
When I felt the Lord nudging me to join this Write 31 Days Challenge, it seemed so crazy. I was just launching my first blog a few days before I was going to need to write and post EVERY SINGLE DAY for a MONTH!
Well, I did it! Here we are at Day 31! Actually, it was not me, it was God who did it through me. I have lived Philippians 4:13 (AMP) . . .
