Closure Pieces

How many times have you heard “Let go, let God”? I’ve heard it plenty in my life and I may follow through with that sage advice 50% of the time! Letting go is often referred to “closure,” another word which basically means time to heal, move on, let go. Recently I experienced the lifting ofContinue reading “Closure Pieces”

Pieces of Grace

Today is my sister’s birthday in heaven. She passed away in 2020. It’s been a hard loss and I’ve written about it frequently. Today I have seen two butterflies attempting to get my attention; I feel they are her spirit visiting. I am standing in the grace of God, healing the pain of grief, allowingContinue reading “Pieces of Grace”

Disruption Pieces

When chaos or negativity interrupts your life, how do you react? With worry? Try to fix the situation yourself? Gossip? PRAYER, conversation with your Father. Bring it all to Him, and then LEAVE it there. No need to keep hashing it over in your mind, causing undue stress. God whispered to me last night “I’veContinue reading “Disruption Pieces”

Dancing in Heaven

When you walk in the light of Jesus, there are unimaginable promised rewards. Not just heaven, as everyone seems to think; but BIGGER! Imagine sitting at the table with Jesus, everything is inlaid in gold and jewels. There is no sorrow in heaven. There is dancing and singing and worshiping together. Be inspired!

Seasons in Our Life

I’m currently in a season of grief. I have been for about two years, but it continues on, as those I love are still dying. It seems endless. I ask God to give me a break, that it would be okay if no one dies for about a year. But I know it won’t lastContinue reading “Seasons in Our Life”

Handbasket

My dad frequently commented that “our world is going to hell in a handbasket.” What is a ‘handbasket’ and why is the world in one. Worse, this was back in the 1970’s, imagine what he would think now. Roe overturned, Ukraine war, starvation in Sudan, the list is endless. Although this is an unfortunate conversationContinue reading “Handbasket”

Never a Bother

That’s quite an expression, Pooh has. It could mean so many things. Depends on how you look at it. Oh, isn’t that true of life, in general. It all depends on what you see/choose to see! I’ve probably been a real downer lately, my friend Mari made a bookmark for me that says: “If IContinue reading “Never a Bother”

A Season of Grief

The first day of summer is next week. Although I look out my window and see blue sky, sun streaming in, green grass, beautiful trees; in my heart, I feel mostly winter. Cold, dark winter. It is like the bottom of the well. A cave without light. An empty pit. Hollow. Disconnected. On my continuousContinue reading “A Season of Grief”

When It’s Too Much

Yesterday I received news that a friend passed away. I made a list in my mind of all I have lost since 2019. TEN! I haven’t even found peace with my sisters’ death in 2020, it’s been a hole in my heart. Now add another to the grief-bag and I just feel like it’s tooContinue reading “When It’s Too Much”

Prayer Assists

Last year I had my left knee replaced. What a journey that was! I learned to depend on the various assists that were suggested. A walker, physical therapy, the many exercises, learning how to manage stairs and then graduating to a cane. And now, my body moves easily without help. In our prayer life, thereContinue reading “Prayer Assists”
