Why we call them fur family members

It had been almost three years without having a dog. Yes, three years without hearing paws racing across the floor. Three years without having a sweet happy face and wagging tail greeting you at the door. Three long years without having a loving dog to simply cuddle up to. This was a major thing missing […]

The Barrier of Fear

Fear has the ability to paralyze us, slow us, change us, make us. It challenges our faith. It challenges my faith. Today was a stormy day, weather wise that is. Hank was restless and anxious all day. Although the storms didn’t reach us until evening. He felt it coming. Sometimes we do too…feel the storms […]

The Story of Laminin

As we experience Lent and the coming of Holy Week, Jesus’ journey to the cross, I am reminded of the following from Louie Giglio. It’s a bit lengthy, but stay with.

I have been away from this for way too long! I apologize for my absence. Below I have copied a reading from one of this week’s devotionals. I simply cannot add anything to it. Enjoy…   Courage  Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24 There […]

Saving Hope

It’s interesting what a difference a year can make. Some years are givers, some takers. 2015 has been a taker. It has taken a lot to get through the year. A struggle actually. Losing my friend of close to 20 years, by boss and business partner. Struggling to keep a business running when I had […]

Realizing our purpose in Him

Story of the Three Trees Once upon a mountain top, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up. The first little tree looked up at the stars and said: “I want to hold treasure. I want to be covered with gold and filled with precious stones. I’ll […]

Changing Seasons

Sometimes when things seem to be falling apart they may actually be falling into place. I believe our lives have seasons – just as the world around us has seasons. Those times when we are called to take a different path. Ones we weren’t expecting or anticipating. The call to look a little harder, listen […]

Introducing Saving Angels Project!

In the past few months I have had the pleasure and honor of meeting Mandi Ball and Mark Wilson of Saving Angels Project. Our reason for meeting was not so pleasant however. It actually was quite tragic. You see in April Mandi’s sister and 8 year old nephew were murdered. They were ambushed by Melissa’s […]
