OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.09.2021

Intention. Intentional. Intentional living. Living on purpose. I meant to do it. “I meant to do it!” said no child ever when confronted by his mother with an infraction. At least he won’t admit to doing it on purpose. Yet, our actions and the course of our life do come from intentional decisions. It might …

Last week I shared beauty tips. Getting rid of things that don’t serve me is a best practice to a beautiful life. As it goes, I had the opportunity to put into practice the beauty tips I shared. It’s not easy and changes aren’t instantaneous, but beauty isn’t quick and easy either. This day, I …

My oldest daughter has developed a keen interest in proper skin care. Now, I know there are those who splash water on the face a couple times a day and call it good. Depending on what a person wants, that might be the answer. I wanted more so I tapped my daughter on the shoulder …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 11.03.2021

On several occasions recently I experienced some trouble with my eyes. It occurred as I prepared to go out for the day. I’m not sure what but something foreign got into my eye causing it to burn, itch and water uncontrollably. It didn’t last long, I suppose because the watering of my eye washed out …

11But watch out, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves by your own fires. This is the reward you will receive from me: You will soon fall down in great torment. Isaiah 50:11 18When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them. …

As I prepared to write this post, I took a few minutes to read a friend’s Caring Bridge update. She just received her final immunotherapy treatment for the cancer she discovered last year. I celebrated with her as she shared, “IT IS FINISHED!” Today, I invite you to celebrate with me as I say, “IT …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 09.08.2021

September. What does that mean to you? It seems it slipped in quietly without any word or warning. It was just here. When I was growing up, it meant school started. We always had one last summer hurrah camping with family in a remote, primitive campground. No running water, electric, showers or indoor plumbing. There …

4Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? 16And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? 2 Corinthians 6:14-16 This …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 06.14.2021

Saturday, Dave and I worked in our landscaping trimming shrubs. Our dog loves to be outside with us but he gets bored with what we are doing. If we don’t keep a careful eye on him, he runs over the river and through the woods to someone else’s house! We don’t like that so I …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 05.10.2021

I use words all day long. Even when I am alone, I use words to communicate with God and to fight not yet encountered situations in my mind. So, even when my vocal chords are not producing audible sound, words run through my head. They communicate everything I need others to know and many things …
