I saw this picture and thought of how true it is!  What affects us is what we ALLOW to affect us. When I was making the DVD of the message for work one Monday, the speaker, who was not the regular Pastor said,  “Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you react.” Think about that …

My Pastor is still teaching on our identity. Last Sunday’s message, of course, was really good. I just haven’t written about it yet this week. The early Christian’s had the right idea. We seem to struggle with our identity, but they did not. We need to try to be more like them. Here are three things that characterized early Christians:1. There …

I have still been listening to my Silers Bald CD this week. I just can not get enough of it. Their song “Real Life” is such a unique worship song to me. Here are some of the lyrics:“Let’s put away the fear, and step right through this skin  so thick, it’s kept me right here.I wanna live, I wanna breath …

I saw this picture and wanted to share it! Jesus set the example for us and how we should live. He accepted and loved people…. we struggle with that for some reason. Everyone we come in contact with deserves the same love and forgiveness that we have. There is not one person on this planet that does not deserve that.I …

Yesterday here in the US, we found out that a beloved actor took his own life. Robin Williams who was one of the funniest men alive, for whatever reason, gave up on life.  I have never met Robin Williams in person. But I have watched him on tv shows and in movies since I was a little girl. He was …

Oh my goodness! Yet again, another church sign has made me angry. Down the road from my house, it says, “Tithe if you love Jesus, anyone can honk.” I guess they wrote that thinking it was cute and that some people put “Honk if you love Jesus” on their car windows when they are traveling. This is so misleading! Any non …

In life, everyone wants to hear those five words, “I am proud of you.” We need that validation sometimes. We just want to know that what we have been doing in and with our lives matter.  I am here to tell you that you, as a person, and what you do matter very much to God. Genesis 1: 27 says …

I think some people believe the strangest things about God. Like He is the George Burns “God” from that old movie. (Totally showing my age on that comment! LOL) Or Morgan Freeman in Bruce Almighty. Just a sweet little old man waiting to do us harm when we mess up.That’s just not the case, people.He is a Spirit, and He …

I have an “unofficial” adopted daughter. I call her that because I did not meet her until she was 17 years old. (And I have not filled out any paperwork to make her mine.) We took her in for a few months, helped her get her GED, then got her paper work ready for college. I just love her like …
