A new creation!

Hope you are enjoying the new blog makeover. I'm almost never happy with stuff for long... I guess that's what I'm thrilled to read the Word, that reminds me that I am a new creation, constantly changing and hopefully improving.

Each day is a new day filled with fresh ideas, new experiences, chances for change, opportunities for growth, challenges to share, and SO much more. I'm so thankful for a clean slate in the Lord, a chance to move forward and let the past be passed.

I think of so many people that I know, and those I just hear about, who are challenged in dealing with so many life-circumstances, and I am thankful that we are only given what we can handle, altho at times our own situations seem so overwhelming.

Thank you Lord for being a firm foundation that I can stand on and know I'll be held safely.

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10, NLT

Strength and Peace - bring them on!


I could use some strength and peace at this time Lord. I was feeling quite content lately, then the world got a bit shook up (yes, I feel like I'm in a snowglobe!) :(

Actions of a persone in my life that supposedly love me and have vowed to care for me and my family have disappointed us time and time again.

I'm so tired of my own voice - hint: this is when I need to run to the Lord and hear His voice... it just feels like a hopeless (I first typed hopefully) mission.

But I do know, deep-down that it there is hope for me and my situation. It feels SO huge right now, but I know it pales in comparison to so many others current pictures of their lives.

Thank you Lord for your voice and the friendships of so many others. It all comes together for the good, even if it hurts along the way.

"The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace." Psalm 29:11, NLT

For the love of money!

Wow, is it ever easy to just keep spending... Christmas is barely a memory and there are just so many bargains out there... I'm staying HOME as much as possible to avoid the lure of shopping. How are y'all doing?

Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15
