I saw this video last night and cried. It was silly of me, but I did.Mr. G and Jellybean Yesterday, two of my best friends said some of the nicest things about me. It just humbles me and warms my heart. I struggle with my self esteem sometimes, but to hear the things they said just moved me. Friends are so important …

Sometimes people just need to know that they are not alone. Hope is a feeling that we all need. We need to know that this season WILL end. We need to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Giving hope to people we care about is a great way to show we care.Our home town star, Phillip …

This past Sunday, our Youth Pastor taught a great message!  I want to share some of it.There are times in our lives when we really wonder why we are here. We try to figure out our destiny, our purpose, if you will.The first way to do that is to realize who you are connected to in life. Your destiny is …

Today in the United States, it is Memorial Day. This is a day that we think of and honor our heroes who have died in combat. I have always had a reverence for any military person. That is one job I was not gifted for!Both of my Grandfather’s served during World War 2. My Grandma even has a map framed …

Yesterday, I had most of the day to myself. I cleaned the house some and decided to start a puzzle.  Of course, I picked a Snoopy puzzle that I’ve had a while. It was still brand new.  Even with it being brand new, I’m pretty sure it is missing some pieces. I like to do the outside edge first, it …

There are two churches near my house. Sometimes their signs annoy me. Today one has  “Heaven is a gated community” on their sign.Now, if you are not a Christian, you could take that the wrong way.My first thought was, “So, I guess I’m not good enough for heaven.” Gated communities are usually built to keep the bad people out. Right? Revelation mentions …

Dictionary.com says that failure is “an act or instance of failing or proving unsuccessful; lack of success”. Why are we so quick to either label ourselves a failure or let someone else label us a failure?People ARE NOT failures.My Pastor always says that failure is an event.So, I sit here this morning, and I could get really down on myself and …

My son posted this video to his Facebook page and I think it is worth sharing. I have talked many times about how God is not sitting in heaven waiting for us to mess up so He can punish us. And how He can not give us something He does not have. This video makes so much sense! I hope …

Yesterday, I mentioned how we believe what is said about us when we are children. I think that is extremely true. If you heard negative things about yourself, you tend to believe those things. (Especially if they are repeated to you.) I know for me, I struggled the older I got with believing what people said about me. Instead of …

I was thinking about how blessed I am to have the friends that I do. Since I am an only child, I have always valued my friendships. My Pastor’s message yesterday was about how our tongue can help or harm. It was a great message, but the one thing it reminded me of are my friends that lift me up. I …
