Every Mommy Has Her Favorite Perfume

Do you have a favorite perfume? I think everyone has a favorite. I like Channel – any of them. Yes, every Mommy has her favorite perfume. It’s funny how a simple fragrance can remind you of someone. The other day I sprayed some Channel on me and instantly remembered my mom’s perfume collection. She liked it too. I was transported back to her walk in … Continue reading Every Mommy Has Her Favorite Perfume

I See You As God Sees You

One of the hardest things to do is look beyond our faults and the faults of others. Our human nature is to judge our behavior and others behaviors. This is not our job. God gave us the Holy Spirit to renew our minds. Let us see ourselves and each other as God does – forgiven, loved, chosen, and free! I see you as God sees … Continue reading I See You As God Sees You

Preceded by Chaos

The Body of Christ is so weary, including me.  Yes, it’s Monday. And I fall down at the feet of my Savior and cry out, “How long Lord, how long?” We desperately need a new breath of God. Everything we thought we knew has come to naught. The new wind of the Spirit will revive us. So we sit and search and wait. Just like those … Continue reading Preceded by Chaos

Why Dance with Death?

The Blood of Jesus Changes You

I was listening to a sermon today and the Pastor said: It doesn’t matter what we see. It doesn’t matter if we feel spiritual or not. It doesn’t matter if we feel worthy or not. What matters is what God sees. AND GOD SEES THE BLOOD! You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition … Continue reading The Blood of Jesus Changes You

A Verse in my Head

I woke up this morning and Holy Spirit gave me some breakfast. “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Guess He knew I would need that today. Especially after: The coffee pot wouldn’t brew. I am really cranky without my morning coffee – just ask my husband. But my response, “This is the day the Lord has … Continue reading A Verse in my Head
