Holy Names

A few years ago, for my own faith studies, I wrote every name and description I could think of to describe God. I ended up with over 40 recipe cards! That didn’t suffice my learning, so I researched each name, really digging into the Bible and “Bible Gateway” (great app/resource)! FATHER Abba, parent, loving, guidance,Continue reading “Holy Names”

God is in the Details

As I look out my window, I see that our Asian Lilacs are “so close,” ready to pop with bloom any minute now! And the fragrance!!! If the computer had smell-o-vision, wouldn’t that be a joy! Have you ever brought flowers from the outside; in? Did you notice the ants crawling around? Oh great, IContinue reading “God is in the Details”

New and Improved

I took the entire month of May off from writing. I needed time to decompress, read, take walks, enjoy my days. I lasted almost 30 days. A few days ago I decided it was time to start this blog again, and have committed to writing every single day. Why? Well, it keeps the blog freshContinue reading “New and Improved”

Holy Spirit

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t read or seen the movie “The Shack” you may not want to continue on. It took me three attempts to watch the movie because it was too real and heartbreaking. When I finally did, I was thoroughly inspired by the characters. God is a strong Black woman, Jesus; a Middle-EasternContinue reading “Holy Spirit”

It’s okay to doubt

I think of Doubting Thomas, he didn’t believe that Jesus was back from death, he didn’t believe and needed proof. So Jesus produced it by having Thomas touch his wounds. That was all he needed and was able to join in the celebrations! We often doubt the circumstances we are in; wondering if Jesus isContinue reading “It’s okay to doubt”

Walking with Jesus

I do guided imagery at night sometimes when I can’t sleep. It is also an effective prayer tool. Jesus saw that I was sad, grieving my sister – He asked if I would join Him on a walk. And we did, through beautiful gardens, with fragrant blooms and delightful colors. He told me that theContinue reading “Walking with Jesus”

Moved to Tears

Today in church, I was moved to crying during this song. I have heard before and always have the same reaction. Palm Sunday is such an emotionally potent day. Imagine being Jesus, you arrive to Jerusalem, the people are waving palm fronds at you, laying down their garments for your lowly donkey to walk over,Continue reading “Moved to Tears”

The Wishing Machine

Today as I hold tight onto a prayer request, hoping that Jesus will push this one through, I am reminded and have confessed to; that God is not a wishing machine. We cannot go to Him when we have exhausted all earthly attempts at solving the issue. He must be our FIRST line of defense.Continue reading “The Wishing Machine”

New Year, New Pieces

I have on occasion, written for a local church newsletter. I always included scripture with a small story or musing about life; mine or just in general. I am continuing this tradition, going forward here. Enjoy and please comment if you are so inclined! My desk faces the front yard of my home. We haveContinue reading “New Year, New Pieces”

Psalm Pieces

I have always loved Psalm 42:1 As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O¬†God. What a beautiful, visual reminder of our love for God, how we strive to become closer to Him. Where do you go for spiritual guidance? I love to walk in nature, surrounded by trees, water, blue skiesContinue reading “Psalm Pieces”
