Nothing Can Separate Us from His Love

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 It's Valentine's Day, so love is... Continue Reading →

What Love Is

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7 Love. It's a word we have come to use so casually in our society. We say "I love chicken." "I love this outfit." "I love my job." It is also a word we decide we no longer feel. "I fell... Continue Reading →

Love Like Him

““You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father...

There is a lot of talk about the worth or value of a person. This is often tied to a person's self-esteem or lack there of. It can lead decsions we make about many things. Too often, in our consideration of our own value we fail to consider the value placed on us by our... Continue Reading →

Three little letters

My heart leapt from my chest when he uttered those three little letters.  I had no idea how much it would mean to me to hear him refer to it with that word.  We had talked many times about it, but today provided a level of hope for my soul that I hadn't expected, especially... Continue Reading →

Flowers are beautiful to look at, some have a pleasing fragrant; I have never understood them outside of their natural setting though. So I had to look up what was so special about daisies that made them my focus.... Continue Reading →

Truth and Grace

There is a popular Christian song by Torin Wells called Known that has been really speaking to me. The chorus says: I'm fully known and loved by You You won't let go no matter what I do And it's not one or the other It's hard truth and ridiculous grace To be known fully known... Continue Reading →

Abiding unity

Nineteen years of marriage has taught me many things about love, relationships, myself, commitment, God, and communication, to name a few.  Today my eyes were opened to another aspect that I had rarely considered.  I was journaling out of John 15:4 (CJB) Stay united with me, as I will with you — for just as...

I am

I am a native of my community. I was born and raised in the same local place. Then so moved away and spent a little more than a decade out of state before finding my way back home. That also describes my relationship with God and church. I grew up in church, from the time... Continue Reading →
