Hope was born from Love on Christmas Day

The Christmas season is in full swing for many of us. We have our trees decorated with festive lights and ornaments while bright-colored stockings have been hung from our fireplace mantles.  All in hopeful anticipation for a visit from the red-suite, round belly, jolly old man. (By the way, that’s for those who still believe in good old Santa Claus.) The malls are alive, crackling with the noise of animated shoppers busy looking for that perfect gift.  I personally try to avoid the malls, as best I can.   I figure I’m less likely to get trampled in a “buy one get one free” stampede

Choosing to have hope in the midst of pain

Choosing to have hope in the midst of pain

I debated writing this post. If not for any other reason, it’s this….transparency is not easy! And it’s especially not easy when our situation is still fresh or ongoing.  Most times we are more inclined to share when we have gone through our experience and come out the other end victorious. But, even just making the decision to share in struggles somehow has the power to be comforting.  Though this post is not about full disclosure, I felt lead to share this much.

He left ninety-nine for me!

This was one of the last few posts I wrote on my old blog site before coming over to WordPress.  I wrote this at a time when I was filled with the absolute awe of how great a love my Saviour has for me, a love that amazes me every single day.  There are days when we might stray a little or a lot,  or even days when life seems so overwhelming and chaotic we can lose focus of the unconditional love our Saviour has for us.  I thought I would share it with you today as a re-post.   The night

Be Still

Be Still

  The morning mist hung low over the almost still water. The only movements on the glossy, grey surface were the soft ripples from the fish as they became more active. Images of the homes on the opposite banks peered through the thinning fog and the rising sun had just  started to spread its orangy glow across the horizon in majestic splendor. It was a brand new day and the loons made their presence known as they wailed at each other across the water. The air had a chill and I was glad for the light sweater I grabbed on
