Jesus is in the midst of the storm

As another week passed, we want to pause and remember to give God thanks and praise for His mercies throughout this week. Let us rejoice with the Psalmist declaring: “How precious to me are your thoughts oh God! How vast is the sum of them? Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains […]

How long is the wait?

How long is a “long” wait? 4 minutes on the drive-thru lane or 10 minutes until the next customer service representative is available? 12 seconds for the YouTube video to play, or 15 minutes until the pizza delivery finally arrives?

Opportunity to de-clutter

This week was a busy one for my family. We are almost done packing and getting ready for the truck to come and pick up our things on Tuesday. Moving isn’t the funniest thing in the world but I’ve learned to appreciate at least one aspect of it, the opportunity to de-clutter. It always amazes […]

How is your 2020 going so far?

If you’ve been participating in the 10 Days of Prayer that started this past week, you’ve probably been as blessed as I have.
