Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

My birthday is in two days! I love birthdays and so does God! Our physical birthdays are good but our spiritual birthday is beyond awesome! I told you that God loves birthdays but maybe you thought I was just using literary license to make a point but I wasn’t.  The Bible says there is a celebration […]

His Power

His Power

2 Peter 1:3 His power gives us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. LIfe is hard, there’s no doubt about that.  There’s sickness and poverty and family problems and… The list could go on and on. But as Christians, we […]

Planting Time

Planting Time

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Spring is just around the corner and that means different things to different folks. For my husband, it means planting time or at least preparing for planting time. He […]

When Things Change…

When Things Change…

One moment you’re a beloved wife or husband and then things change… One moment you’re a loving parent and then things change… One moment you’re a valuable employee and then things change…   Things change. There’s an old saying that says only two things are guaranteed in life…death and taxes. I’ll add a third to […]

3 Steps to a Better 2016

3 Steps to a Better 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone, but the calendar says it’s so. How was 2015 for you? I pray that it was all that you hoped for and even more. If not, I’ve got a few suggestions to make 2016 better. If it was, you might still benefit […]

Gratitude

Gratitude

Thanksgiving is over. I’m sure we all loved the turkey and pumpkin pie! Well, some of us–I know it’s a bit un-American, but I don’t like pumpkin pie, but that’s beside the point. Thanksgiving was created as a day to focus on all the blessings God’s given up in the previous year, but sometimes that […]

Sweet and Delightful!

Sweet and Delightful!

Oops! I came upstairs this morning and looked at the date on my computer. November 10–yikes, that means I forgot to write a post for Putting On The New. Lucky for me, I had a Bible verse I’ve been meditating on lately. Proverbs 16: 24 (AMP) says, Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet and […]

The New Me?

The New Me?

In my last post, I talked about “Who Am I?” And in it, I talked about seeing ourselves as God sees us instead of seeing us with the labels others put on us or the ones we put on ourselves. I want to talk a bit more about identity today. So after three long years […]

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

There’s no way to get around it. It’s going to happen whether you want it to or not. We even do it to ourselves. What am I talking about? Labels. Everyone says they hate them, and yet we all do it. To others and to ourselves. Labels may be a convenient way to categorize people […]

It’s True!

It’s True!

What’s true, you might be asking yourself right now? At least I hope you are. There’s a Christian platitude that says, “God won’t give you more than you can bear.” But is that really true?  It might or might not shock you that there is no such verse in the Bible. The closest is 1 […]

What Makes A Hero?

What Makes A Hero?

With July 4th just past, I thought I’d talk about heroes today. Everyone love a hero, right? But what makes a hero? I’m sure there are many different ways to define or describe a hero, but I think a hero is someone who puts themselves out for someone else without any expectation of getting a […]

Following My Own Advice

Following My Own Advice

We love to give advice, don’t we? Lots of us give it even when nobody wants to hear it. But when others give us advice, we tell them why we’re right and they’re wrong. Most of the time we ignore it. Every once in a while we actually take it. But what about following our […]

Even a Hula Hoop!

Even a Hula Hoop!

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, when the going gets tough, the tough get going or maybe they go shopping. I forget which it is. But what about writers? When the going gets tough, they write! And so I have. GOD, LIFE & HULA HOOPS is the result. As you might or might not remember, […]

Life Goes On…

Life Goes On…

Last month, I shared my diappointment that my husband and I won’t be going on our European trip because I had to go back on treatment for my brain tumors and how sad I felt about it. Which brings me to the topic I want to talk about today. Choices! We don’t always get to […]

Dealing With Disappointment?

Dealing With Disappointment?

Me too! As you may or may not know or remember, I was diagnosed with bilateral brain tumors in 2012. The good news was they were benign, meaning non-cancerous. The bad news was they weren’t benign, meaning harmless. In fact, they’ve changed so many things, I don’t have time to list all my “issues.” But […]

Love Is In the Air

Love Is In the Air

1st Corinthians 13: 4-6  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.    Hearts. Chocolate. Roses. Gooshy—mooshy cards. February is all […]

Attitude is Everything!

Attitude is Everything!

Since this post is for January 10th, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about for my first post of the new year—even had the Bible verse I planned to use. But as Proverbs 16: 9 (NKJV) says, “A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” Soooo…I guess the post […]

A Baby Changes Everything

A Baby Changes Everything

Luke 2: 10-12 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will […]
