A “Separate” Blog It Is…

Welcome back! You may remember a recent post I made, about not using this blog and just using the one I have on Apple Blossom Ministries.  Well, after much deliberation, I have decided to reverse that decision. And I removed that post. Quite simply, I just wasn’t feeling it. It didn’t seem to be the right…

Jumping Back In

Today is my last day of a 10 day vacation I took with my husband – though a couple of the days were work related for him. I really enjoyed my time off because I had been feeling stressed from work, and I think I was taking on a little of my husband’s stress as…

15 Things For Which I Am Thankful

To me, Thanksgiving isn’t just a holiday that happens once a year. During Thanksgiving, we often tell others what we are thankful for.  I don’t think that should be limited to once a day in October or November, depending where you live. Really, we should be thankful every day. What It Means To be thankful…

Dear Younger Me…

Dear Younger Me, You are beautiful. You are stronger than you think. And, don’t let anyone tell you differently. And don’t believe that you aren’t.  You ARE enough! The world is going to tell you that you have to be pencil-thin and have the latest fashions in style and the right hairstyle and makeup. They…

Ideas For Creating a Prayer Journal

  I used to keep a prayer journal several years ago. I don’t really know why I stopped; I probably just got lazy or forgetful, and it gradually fell by the wayside. I used a simple, cheap, journal I had purchased at a dollar store to record my prayers in. I wrote somewhat specific prayers…

How Is Your Cup?

We all know Psalm 23. It’s usually quoted at funerals. I memorized this Psalm from the King James Version when I was younger (that was the only version available to me at the time), and in that version verse 5 states, “My cup runneth over.” I used to think this was a bad thing. I…

It’s Not Really A Guest Post Per Se…

I have a post over on the website for Apple Blossom Ministries! It’s called, “5 Steps to Help Study the Bible.”  I’d love for you to visit there. I’d also love for you to come back and let me know how you study the Bible. Do you have any steps to add? What are you currently studying?

The Armour of God – Part 4

16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:16-17, NASB) Shield of Faith These last three…

Ah, I See You’re Back!

I have been on vacation with my family for the last week. It’s been a much needed time of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Recently, I submitted a piece for the True Wellness Project, a part of the Well Christian Women blog, and while I was away, my article was published on their site. I’d love…

At My Age?!

I am almost 50 years old.  It seems like only yesterday that I was half the age I am now. Sometimes I feel like I’m now too old to take on new roles, new adventures, follow new paths. I often think, “If only I had started this in my 20s or 30s….” and then I feel depressed…
