We have become so commercialized. And self-centered. Christmas lists that are pages long. Holiday parties full of indulgences. When did we lose sight of the meaning of Christmas? When did we forget that this season is a celebration of the coming of Christ to save us from our own sinfulness? It seems ironic to me … Continue reading Pour Yourself Out
I want to be that kind of woman. I want to honor God with my life in such a way that I am remembered for it. I want to stop stressing the little setbacks in life and celebrate the triumphs. I know God is taking care of whatever life throws my way and that I … Continue reading A Life of Honor…
It’s been a while. And I am finding myself wandering right now. On autopilot as I get through the day to day. It’s time to turn off the cruise control and live a life of intention! I want to find deeper fellowship with God. And, I am hoping as a result that I will find … Continue reading The greatest knowledge
I can see it: the light at the end of the tunnel. It is right there in front of me, beckoning me to finish my course. It has been a long 3 weeks. I am so ready to take the next leap of faith in my life, but change has always made me nervous. I … Continue reading Il sereno dopo la tempesta
How many times have I said that I was going to make all these changes in my life? I have made all these promises to myself and to others in an attempt to be held accountable. But who is it that I am truly accountable to? I try to leave all my problems in life … Continue reading Let Go & Let God
I sit from time to time and wonder “If I died today, would our Lord welcome me beyond the gate of the Kingdom of Heaven?” I try to live my life according to Christ’s message, but I know I falter. I believe that God knows my heart and knows I try hard. I like to … Continue reading The Second Coming of Jesus
The world stopped turning…
Or at least it seemed to that September morning. I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing the moment I heard that planes had hit the World Trade Center towers.
I was just a baby at the time. Not yet out of my teens, I was 19 years old and full of optimism and spunk. That morning the world became less sunshine and daisies. It was like the cloud of smoke and debris that had settled over lower Manhattan had also settled over my eyes. Continue reading “Have You Forgotten?”
There have been many occasions where I have tried to share my faith with others only to walk away feeling like the other party in the conversation was ridiculing me. But I am still compelled on a regular basis to share. Thankfully God has blessed me with an incredible group of women that share in … Continue reading Wednesday Night Lovelies
The ultimate challenge in our walk with Christ is to attempt to live a life in His image. I struggle with this daily. I know that I do not always react with love in each situation. God gives us free will which allows us to decide if we are going to feed that feeling of … Continue reading Agápē
I woke up this morning and realized that 3 weeks from today we would be landing in Milan and starting our journey along the Alps to Venice. I am in awe that we are making this pilgrimage. God is so generous in providing our family the opportunity to make this journey and to see the Holy Sites we will be travelling to.
“But who am I, and who are my people…”(1 Chronicles 29:14) David asks this of our Lord and I can appreciate how he must have been feeling in that moment. What have we done to be so generously provided for? There are millions of people around the world struggling for survival. It is my prayer that this journey will bring us all closer in worship to our Father and learn how to better honor Him.
