loved


And in that moment, I felt the Lord answer me-because she loves you, “Don’t change a thing!  Just keep sitting like you are.”

Such a great lesson for all of us! God has placed people in our lives to convey HIS love for us through the body of Christ. There is no doubt of the love these sisters have for Julie and what a blessing for everyone that the moment of blessing was not lost.

May this serve as a lesson to us all to slow down and bask in the love of our extended family and that of our Father!!!

Blessings and Peace Always

My first line of defense-Him!


“I wanna find you, in every season, in every moment. Before I speak a word, I will bring my heart, and seek You first.” ~January Marshall

Learning to turn first to God it something we all wrestle with and when the pressure builds from every side, everyone stands at the edge. He will forgive, of this there is no doubt. Hopefully, as we learn and grow, the signs become clearer when the struggle begins and we have the opportunity to stop first and rest in Him.
Agreed… “My first lind of defense–HIM!”

Seeking him

Before I speak a word, let me hear Your voice. And in the midst of pain, let me feel Your joy.

-Lauren Daigle, “First”

You are having one of those moments. Maybe one of those days. Everything has gone wrong. Every possible obstacle and frustration stands directly in your path.

There is that email from a co-worker that lacks grace, and leaves you seething.

Your kids have spilled something, knocked over the plant, and yelled at each other one too many times.

You have been stuck for days inside, and in need of some fresh air, only to find that your only means of escaping cabin fever now won’t start.

That person cut you off in traffic. You are in the express lane behind someone with WAY more than 20 items.

Your neighbor has called the police on your dog…..AGAIN!

You react. You respond to that email in anger. Snap at…

Praise Him Anyway


But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. Psalm 59:16

Praise Him Anyway

I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. Psalm 34: 1

In my daily work, I often find myself moving from one crises to another. It is for this reason that I often have to forget or put aside my own crisis that may have occurred outside the school building. Those that may have occurred before I even left home. So I can help others cope with their own struggles.

However, sometimes these two worlds collide and you are dealt two crises in your hand of cards. Two that you must strategically play at the same time.

The phone rings in the middle of someone’s meltdown, and you find your own child or loved one is now in the middle of theirs. What do you do? How do you respond?

This actually occurred recently to my co-worker. And, as I watched her calmly sit…

You turned my wailing into dancing;you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.Lord my God, I will praise you forever. Psalm 30

Lift your eyes


“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
    and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
    giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”

Isaiah 55:10-11

Along for the Climb


Tears of joy will stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care. They will walk beside quiet streams, and on smooth paths where they will not stumble. Jeremiah 31:9 In recent years I have become to enjoy the challenge of a good hike. It has become an aspiration among friends to […]

the people that walked in darkness have seen a great light


“Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come on you: for he that walks in darkness knows not where he goes.”  John 12:35

the struggle is real


“Lots and lots of cotton-balled clouds that are shielding the sun from my eyes… so why it is that they don’t “get in the way” of my view?  In fact, they give the light something to reflect off of, making it even more lovely. The clouds don’t detract from the light, they diffract it :)” ~ Julie Harris
