A Season of Transformation

If you’ve never experienced a Wisconsin winter, you will not understand how good a 65-to-70-degree day feels. Windows open, coats are removed, you stay outside as long as possible and enjoy the warmth. But, if you have experienced a Wisconsin spring, you know that you don’t put your coat away. For cold temps are still… Continue reading A Season of Transformation

Church – The Fellowship of Believers

Faith like a Child

Good morning or afternoon! I’ve seen many videos of kid vs adult life. It shows how simple life was as a kid, versus as an adult when everything is complicated. I look at my kiddos and their biggest worries in life; who will buckle me in? Grandma or Auntie? Who gets the blue cup this… Continue reading Faith like a Child

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

It is amazing how things come around again. From birth, my mom instilled a love of books in me. I still have the books from my childhood. Now, my nieces and nephews are cutting their reading teeth on some of my childhood books. One of the many books I loved as a kid, was the… Continue reading Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

Be Still and Know

Way back in May, I wrote a post called Amazing Undeserving Love. And it was an in-depth look at the common verse of John 3:16. That verse tends to be quoted so much that we forget its true meaning. If you would like to read that post, click here! Other verses are often like John… Continue reading Be Still and Know

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I am an Aunt of seven little munchkins. Four girls and three boys. The girls came first, and then the boys came to try and even it out. We will never forget when our first munchkin was born. She came into the world eight years ago, and I still remember the wonder of seeing her… Continue reading Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Faith Like Rahab?

Top of the Morning to all! As I have said before, I tend to have reading mood swings. I either read five plus books at once or one or less book a month. There is no in-between. Last week I decided that I should take up reading again. And while I have started reading The… Continue reading Faith Like Rahab?

Have Courage and Be Kind

Disclaimer: This is a revised post based off of a previous post. I find this post should be repeated. In my room I have a collage of posters on my wall. Some are quotes, some are pictures, and the others are just artwork that I have done. One of the posters says these simple words: Have… Continue reading Have Courage and Be Kind

The Power that Comes from Within

While I did plan on posting twice last week, the bug I am fighting has taken over my writing brain and I couldn’t think. I have been sick for a week now, and during this time, I have been able to put to practice one of my goals for this year. And that was to… Continue reading The Power that Comes from Within

Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Immanuel. Part One

Sunday night was our Christmas program. It was called ‘The Birthday of a King’. And well, that pretty much describes the play. It was about the birth of Jesus, the King of Kings. One of the songs performed was Mary, Did You Know? And that got me thinking about Mary. We don’t have an abundant… Continue reading Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Immanuel. Part One

Always Be thankful – Never take anything for granted

It is September 2, 2020. And while I would love to put the brakes on and hold on to summer as long as I can, I can’t. I can’t ignore the fall decorations, Halloween inflatables, or the pumpkin wagons being parked at the local Co-Op and parking lots. Fall is coming and bringing with it… Continue reading Always Be thankful – Never take anything for granted
