• Jeremiah 24: 6-7

    Jeremiah 24: 6-7 This morning as I was doing my daily devotion, I asked God to show me what He wanted me to learn more about. I generally hold my Bible up on its spine, pray for God to show me His word and let the Bible fall open. This morning the Bible opened to Jeremiah 24. As I was reading I got to verse 6 and 7 and every few words, there was meaning that was being shown to me by God. What I mean by that is that as I read a few words, a different meaning came to me in my head and my heart. Jeremiah 24: 6-7 from…

  • Stroke at 42 YIKES!!!

    Surviving a stroke can have many different looks to it.  One may have physical disabilities, mental disabilities, speech disabilities or even all three.  These can also look different to everyone who survives a stroke. years ago I had a stroke.  I was only 42.  I know, so young, right?  However, this stroke has affected me more than I want to admit.  Not only has it affected me, but my friends and family as well. Added to a stroke, I have Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Afib, and on and on.  What is a person to do?  Lay in bed eating bonbons?  HA! If only… NOT! Thank God, I regained much of my physical…

  • Two Week Road Trip

    May means showers, mowing the lawn, outside chores and spring cleaning.  However, it also means graduations.  We have two nieces graduating with the Class of 2018.

Congratulations to all the graduating…

  • P-Mails– Better than e-mail!

    I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately and feel that God has led me to share some of the things I am learning from my studies about a deeper relationship with Him.  When I heard about this concept, a personal relationship with God, a few months ago, I was completely ready to find out more about this. I have prayed since I was a younger child, and gave my life to Christ, but it seemed that I would send up P-mails (prayer mail) to God and go about my merry way.  I had never heard the idea of having a personal relationship with Him and becoming closer to…

  • Living to be 950 years old!

    Today my daughter and I were reading about Noah in Genesis, Noah lived to be 950 years old, can you believe it?   I am not sure that I can even imagine living that long.  But God decided that Noah was the only person on the face of the earth that was worth saving.  One of the things that stood out to my daughter was that the animals in the water were never mentioned until the flood water receded. Interesting… I guess I had never thought of the sea life before, in the story of Noah and the Ark.  Were they saved?  Did the fresh water kill off the salt water…

  • Listen, Love, Repeat

    Hi there again, here I am sitting outside on my deck in Southern Maryland in a balmy 60ish degree weather.  I have my sheets hanging on the line and I am sitting underneath my gazebo that my husband put a new roof on.  I thank God every day for my wonderful and amazing hubby. This week I am starting a new Bible Study online over at Proverbs 31.  The book is called Listen, Love, Repeat and it was written by Karen Ehman. The Bible study has a Book, a Study Guide and videos that come with it (they are separate purchases), I ordered the book as a Kindle book and a…
