gracious

Gracious God in the morning
Your guiding hand through the day
You hold my moments and my mistakes
You are never far away.
Glorious God of the sunset
Painting skies in marvelous hues
Your patient love sustains me
Your promise will see me through.
Generous God of the bedtime hour
When I lay my head down for the night
You have been my sure provider
You [...]

When you change that diaper, you are changing the world.
When you are a round-the-clock nurse for three sick little ones, you are changing the world.

steady

In seasons of change and transition, whether that be adding a new baby to the family, moving across the country, a job change, or even just coming off of the holidays, life can feel out of control.

Who’s Got The Power?

Did you know that nothing can, or cannot, happen to you without the approval or knowledge of your heavenly Father?  Did you know that, when trouble comes, there is someone ultimately in control?  Someone who really and truly cares about you and has your best interest in mind.  Nothing, nothing, has more power over your [...]

One thing that I am slow in learning, but growing in just the same, is trusting in the Lord no matter what my outside circumstances – or pending deadlines – look like.  God is always in control, and He has never let me [...]

In The Beginning

Adam and Eve.  Theirs was truly a life to be envied.  Can you imagine walking and talking with God in the cool of the day?  Can you imagine the lushness and beauty of the Garden of Eden?  What must it have been like to be fully exposed, naked, and unashamed?  Their relationship with God and [...]

Eternity Is Closer Than We Think

Last week an Ethiopian church planter was martyred, a wife and four children left without a husband and father.  A friend of mine miscarried her baby.  My grandfather passed away only a few days ago.  And we are all aware of the recent tragedy in Japan.  This has had me thinking about eternity.  Life after [...]
