Did you know that God has a sense of humor? I mean, after all, He created everything and we have laughter and fun, don’t we? I was looking through the Scriptures and came across this in Genesis. I think it is funny.Genesis 21: 5-7 says, “5 Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born. 6 And Sarah declared, “God has brought …

My sense of smell is one thing I do not take for granted. There is something about my personality where my 5 senses are just really special to me. I’m sure you are thinking, “Well mine are to me too.”This is different. I tend to live and learn through my senses. Everyone learns differently.This quote of taking time to stop …

It has been almost a year since my now ex husband left me and our kids. I have been amazed at how fast time goes by and how much change can happen in a year. Some people in my life seem to struggle with the changes that have taken place in me. I can not help what I have gone through. One …

At one time or other in our lives, we’ve heard someone say this quote.  Did you know it was from Ben Franklin? I bet you heard a pastor say it from the pulpit. I bet he was even referring to the people at the corners with their cardboard signs  asking for help.  I bet a pastor even told you not …

This quote really sums up what I’ve been doing wrong. (By the way, Jim Elliot was a missionary who went to another country to tell people about Jesus. He was killed by tribal people there because they didn’t understand. His wife and others stayed and the people learned about God.) I’m not ALL here sometimes.  I’m in my head. I’m …

Since I’ve been writing my blog, I have figured out that I am passionate about helping people break out of religion and legalism. Those two things are man made. God is interested in a relationship with us. You do not have to jump through hoops, read your Bible every day for hours, pray everyday for hours and go to church every …

This is another part of my Pastor’s message from Sunday. Life is about what we do with the 24 hours every day that God has given us.We are here for a purpose: Jeremiah 29:11 says, “11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a …

My Pastor started a new message series on Sunday. It is based on Romans 12: verses 1 and 2. The Message translation of these is very easy to understand:“12 1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God …
