Impromptu Adventure

I pretty much stink at surprises.  Seriously, if someone is planning to surprise me, I’m going to find a way to ruin it.  My husband’s marriage proposal almost didn’t happen because I did everything could to ruin his plans, unknowingly.  With one of my pregnancies, my husband informed me of a surprise baby shower because heContinue reading “Impromptu Adventure”

A Long Way Off

The parable of the lost son is one that I have known my whole life.  Growing up in church, it was a part of the children’s curriculum each year.  I have read it repeatedly throughout the years and have seen multiple versions played out.  Even Veggie Tales has their own take on the prodigal.  TooContinue reading “A Long Way Off”

Isn’t enough, enough?” I felt an urging to turn to my Bible and read in Matthew where Jesus calmed theContinue reading “Calmed…within the Storm”

People who saw more potential in me than I saw in myself and felt no reservations in giving me little nudges toward what they feltContinue reading “Removed pt. 3”

Removed pt.1

“But when she could no longer hide him, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with asphalt and pitch. She placed the child in it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile.”   Exodus 2:3 Throughout my journey with God, I have felt his yes and no answers.  I say felt becauseContinue reading “Removed pt.1”
