Know the Generosity of God…and never thirst! (John 4)

Prayer by a Person Who’s Good at it!

Day 287: John 17:1-21 I have just received some really sad news from a dear friend whose potential son-in-law has committed suicide.  He left behind a family that loved and cared for him so much.  There is one think that I know for sure…that when these kinds of tragedies happen in our lives, there is no way on this earth that we…

In a Little While

Day 286: John 16:1-24 I’ll never forget when my husband woke me up in the middle of the night in so much pain.  I had to hurry and throw some clothes on and get him to the hospital.  It turned out that he had a kidney stone.  I have been fortunate to not have ever had a kidney stone, but I have…

The Secret Living

Day 285: John 15:1-17 I have been confused about so many things lately.  Why are we so torn apart and divided in our country?  Why is it so hard for us to agree or even agree to disagree?  However, the thing that keeps me awake at night the most, is the LGBT community.  Why is our sexuality such a big issue?  Because…

Pressing Toward the Goal

I was probably about 11 years old when my neighbor across the street let me try to ride her unicycle.  Of course, just like learning to ride a bike, I had to learn how to mount a unicycle and ride it.  It took me thousands of times holding on to the car and going around and around until one day, I finally felt confident…

PURE JOY!

Luke 3:7-18 As a young mother, I used to say, “I just pray that my children grow up to be good citizens, believe in the Lord Jesus, and be happy.  I am very blessed because for the most part, all four of our children have met that criteria.  However, as I have gotten older and wiser, I…
