How’s Your Prayer Life

How’s Your Prayer Life

For the Collage Class… I love you! How’s Your Prayer Life? On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being nonexistent and 10 being Mother Teresa), how would you rate your prayer life? I am hesitant to rate myself very high… as a matter of fact, my prayer life is something I definitely need to … Continue reading

Do it all for the Lord

Do it all for the Lord

Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Paul was addressing slaves in this portion of his letter to the Colossians.  But how much more does it mean to us as women? Do we not wear many hats?  Often too many?  Do … Continue reading

Keeping the Sabbath, Week 1

REST… God has shown me at every turn that this is something He really wants me to seek. Rest in Him. I wrote last week about keeping the Sabbath. This is not something I have ever done… and I still have a lot of questions. A friend offered what Sabbath rest looks like for her … Continue reading

REST

My word of the year for 2014 was “stewardship”. I wouldn’t say I failed, but there is definitely a learning curve to becoming a better steward of what God has given you. I was convinced that “stewardship” was to remain my word in 2015. There is still much to learn and much to do. I … Continue reading

Happy Saint Paddy’s Day!!!

Happy Saint Paddy’s Day!!!

It’s March 17th, folks.  You know what that means, right? In classrooms everywhere leprechauns played pranks on little kids; in homes everywhere moms slaved over delicious meals of corned beef; and in towns everywhere people celebrated with parades, parties, and pinching… But do you know the real story behind this festive day? Do you know … Continue reading

Monday Praises #30

Really?  30 weeks of Monday praises?!  Wow!  I’m amazed… and a bit more motivated to not give up. Motivation… that has been something I have been lacking as of late.  Motivation to walk more.  Motivation to eat healthier.  Motivation to grade those papers or organize those classroom files.  Motivation to finish this project and start … Continue reading

Monday Praises #29

So, a week ago I wrote about the song “One Touch” and alluded to the fact that there would be more posts about the song and what it meant to me… and then I didn’t add any more posts!  That is kinda where my head is at the moment.  In the state where nothing could … Continue reading

One Touch

Monday Praises centered around the song “One Touch” by Nicole C. Mullin.  The song is derived from the story of the woman who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment.  Let me recap the story from you. Mark 5:25-33 25 A woman was there who had been bleeding for twelve years.26 She had suffered a lot under the … Continue reading

Monday Praises #27

Don’t give up on me, friends.  I have been fairly absent from the blogging world apart from Monday Praises… and I promise to keep this link-up going. This season in my life is very… weird.  I am busy, although God has given me snow days and lazy afternoons to refuel.  I still battle hard days … Continue reading
