Thy Will/My Will

imageThere are those who say to God:

“Thy will be done.  We will submit our wills to you, and place our eternity into your hands.”

God’s reward?

They will find His Blessings on earth, and spend all of eternity in His Heavenly kingdom with Him, crowned as His children.

Psalm 17:8  “Keep me as the apple of your eye, hide me under the shadow of our wings.”

Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Then there are those to whom God says: Continue reading

An Unlikely Dream

Joseph wasn’t unlike some teenagers of today.  His father’s overt favoritism left him with that strong sense of entitlement—

“I really am all that.”  “It really is all about me.”

Jacob, Joseph’s father, AKA Israel, made Joseph an expensive and fancy coat to–well–die for.  Almost.

God had plans to use Joseph to save the nation of Israel, but first Joseph needed a humbling period.

Joseph needed to mature.  The enrollment into the University of Hard Knocks began. Continue reading

Don’t Miss Out On This!


If you know a kid, or you are one of God’s grown up kids, your heart needs to know this!

Don’t miss out on this free offer from Keith Ferrin.  It is an identity booster for a Christ Follower.

I wish I would have known I had an identity in Christ when I was a kid, or even after I grew up!  It would have saved me a lifetime of heartache and empty identity searching.

I believe this is a great way to give our children a head start in life especially the way things are in this world nowadays. Continue reading

Grieving Forefathers

imageThis amazing image was captured by Amanda Ahren and Brian Husmann on their drive past Mount Rushmore the morning of the day it opened after being closed for two weeks due to government shut-down.  It was posted on Megan Ahren’s facebook page. As of yesterday early evening, this post had gone viral with over 12,000 shares.

The symbolism is incredible considering what is going on with our nation and our government.

God Bless America.  May He continue to shed His grace on this country!

A Pursuing God



It never ceases to amaze me that the GOD OF ALL CREATION—THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR—Longs to be part of our lives.

In real estate it’s all about:

When Rape Is Okay

Wow! What are these kids being taught at home!


When rape is okay

I want to thank Sisters of Power for this post. Even though I was horrified when I read this post, It definitely needs to be shared. Why are children being taught to believe such insane things? While no one wants to think their child is a predator, when we sweep such behavior under the rug, like my own mother did…we are in fact, breeding it. We are teaching our children that it is okay to rape.

“You’re a Stay-At-Home Mom? WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?”

When I was the stay at home mom of 3 kids under 4, I spent all day making sure my kids tummies were filled, their dishes were washed (we didnt have a dishwasher), their clothes smelled fresh, their home was cleank safe and their toys were picked up, , their faces and bottoms were wiped, and their hearts were merry. I couldn’t wait till they took naps so I could have a downtime. My then-husband would come home and look at the pile of unfolded laundry on the bed and say, “What did you do all day?” I wish I would have said, “Sit down in your tidy house, eat your homemade dinner, and play with your well cared for kids.. I can’t tell you exactly all that I did, but I know it is an awful lot! because I am now exhausted” Motherhood is a non-ending job. I appreciate the way this man appreciates his wife and the mother of his kids.


This is a fabulous post, written by Matt Walsh on October 9, 2013. Kudos to him for putting his wife and all ‘Stay-At-Home’ Mom’s on a pedestal. What a great post! Don’t just read it here, check out his site and see what he’s up to at > The Matt Walsh Blog.

You’re A Stay-At-Home Mom? WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?”

It’s happened twice in a week, and they were both women. Anyone ought to have more class than this, but women — especially women — should damn well know better.

Need Help Liking The Bible?

imageHappy Saturday everybody.

When I find something of great value I like to share it.

That is why I have spent countless hours telling stories of how God has transformed me from a person who felt meaningless and unwanted to a person who realizes that God, the Creator of the universe, the All Mighty, All Powerful God–is also my Father.

He redeemed this unwanted, forsaken, sinful, selfish, forgotten, fatherless self–ME–into His kingdom through the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son.

So now I can say,

“I got a Daddy!” Continue reading

CAUTION: You Are Being Watched


You are being watched.


Every day, you are being watched.

I don’t mean Big Brother, Uncle Sam, or the thousands of cameras that are popping up all over our cities.  I am not referring to God, though indeed, He does watch us. Continue reading

Not all Obesity is Due to Gluttony

imageIt is so good to finally get a health warning that is useful!


I don’t know why I didn’t figure this out sooner!

I use shampoo in the shower!

When I awash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body.

 Printed right on the shampoo bottle label is this warning.


No wonder I have been gaining weight!

Well, YOU BET I got rid of that shampoo!* Continue reading
