At times, the last 5 months have seemed like an eternity as we have walked through the valley of the shadow of cancer with my daughter. Early on the doctors said…don’t look too far ahead.

God says, ” I have a Word for You”

Driving on an empty asphalt road  forward to 2015

Beginning on New Year’s Day, I decided that I would again read through the Bible in a year.  (Well actually, I have done it only once before and it took me over 3 years as I journaled my way through it chapter by chapter.) But this time, I decided to take a new approach by…

God says, “No Greater Joy”


“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth” 3 John 1:4 I was in BSF in 2005 when I first heard this scripture – still pretty new in the Lord – still hopeful that my children would come to know Him too.  Isn’t that the desire of…

God Says, “Let the Quest Begin”

I’m on a quest. I was in Starbucks the other day – ear buds in – listening to Brandon Heath sing softly in the background – when someone came up behind me and covered my eyes asking…”do you know who this is?” Immediately I knew the voice – even when He was trying to disguise…

God says, “Do You Love me?”

  When life gets crazy-busy… When we’ve had our focus on everything but each other… or – most of the time – When I simply want to hear him say these words…   I have this little thing I say to my husband: Me:    Do you love me? Tom:  Yes I do! Me:    How much?…
