God Says, Breathe!


Have you ever noticed that waiting can be harder than knowing? If the waiting is long…you might be able to put it out of  your “everyday” thoughts…but then as “it” draws closer..anxiousness raises it’s ugly head again! Busyness is my “go to” move.

Phone calls are like a box of chocolate. You never know what you’re going to get!?!   On Oct 15, 2014…I got “the call”. You know… the kind you pray you’ll never get, the kind that changes everything – forever. “Mom, I just left the doctor. They want to do more tests.” Please God –…

God says, “I Choose You”


In a dream…while on vacation. Clear – unmistakable. God answers. I know that voice. I have heard it before. Not often…but when God really wants my attention – that’s’ how he gets it.
