Brokenness

Brokenness

What do you do when something of yours gets a crack or breaks, let’s say a glass or a bowl? I know for me it usually ends up in the garbage. I don’t want anyone to cut their mouths on a broken glass and cracked bowls inevitably leak milk or other liquids so that’s no […]

The Wonder of Worship

The Wonder of Worship

I think it’s far too easy for us to go about our daily routines without a thought to what we’re worshiping.  And, inevitably, we are worshiping something. As a definition worship is: The feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity. (source) But don’t let the word “deity” confuse you. I think it’s […]

He Leadeth Me Beside the Still Waters

He Leadeth Me Beside the Still Waters

He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; Psalm 23: 2-3 (NKJV) I didn’t realize how painful the heart could hurt until one of my sisters passed in 2008 and another one a year later in 2009. I can’t describe the feeling except that it pierced to my soul. I thought I […]

You Are a Shield Around Me

You Are a Shield Around Me

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about God’s protection. I ask him for protection against evil, wrongdoing, misunderstandings, health problems, and sometimes even myself. Whatever it is that could harm me, I ask for protection. I didn’t always do this. I used to ask for protection when I saw something negative […]

Waiting For Sunrise

Waiting For Sunrise

Have you ever watched the sunrise? The beauty of the red and pink hues just before the sun appears above the horizon is enough to drag some people from their beds in the wee hours of the morning. For me, this occasional early rise from bed isn’t the norm. There are those who live for […]

Staying Satisfied

Staying Satisfied

I don’t know about you, but I find more often than not, that trying to hold onto satisfaction is like trying to grab a fist full of sand. Just when you think you’ve got a good hold, somethings shifts and it all slips right through your fingers.   No matter who you are, it’s guaranteed […]

My Chains Are Gone

My Chains Are Gone

Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains, for they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High …Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the deepest […]

Where Do You Wear Your Faith?

Where Do You Wear Your Faith?

Psalm 150:4 Praise him with tambourines and dance, praise him with strings and pipe! Psalm150four is the e-mail address of a dear friend. We got to know each about fifteen years ago when she brought her family to our church. It was a compromise between her husband’s and her denominational mindset. Deidre was plugged into […]

Sunday Verse: Psalm 104:12

Sunday Verse: Psalm 104:12

Psalm 104:12 has a lot of great imagery in it, but one day as I was reading it these words stood out for me: “Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; They sing among the branches”   It encouraged me to create this print. Some of my favorite Psalms are the ones that have […]

The Psalms Were Hiding In My Egg Carton Today

It’s funny how you can look at something a hundred times, and suddenly you see it differently. One day, as if the heavens had opened and the sun beamed down in just the right way, you finally notice something that’s been in front of your face all along. Only now, it’s different to you. That’s […]
