Pieces of Loss

There are many variations of loss.  Of life, love, a health diagnosis, home, job, and whatever it is, is the most important thing to you at the time.  No one could possibly understand, even if they can relate – it’s not the same.  Sometimes we don’t want empathy as much as we want someone toContinue reading “Pieces of Loss”

Random Pieces

Today, I found a two sided piece of paper;  it fluttered from somewhere and landed behind my desk.  There are a few scribblings and a date of 12/4/2013. These exact kind of notes were the reason behind “The Pieces” book.  I wanted to share what God had shown me, inspired revelations that carried me fromContinue reading “Random Pieces”

Pieces of Christmas

What an incredible time of  year; the celebration of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Our King, born into humble circumstances, who would walk this earth as a man, human in every sense, to bring light to a dark world.Kings brought their finest gifts, sheep and cows stood near their shepherds, a heavenly host sang Hallelujah, theContinue reading “Pieces of Christmas”

Pieces of Peace

I held off and didn’t post this right away; to see if the world would calm down in the aftermath of the U.S. election for President.  I do think on social media, 1/2 of the people are still searching to answers “why” and the other 1/2 have gotten back to work, home, their daily life.  Continue reading “Pieces of Peace”

Pieces of Salvation

You start a conversation off with the word “salvation” and people run for the hills.  There are Christians, believers, followers, whatever term you wish to use that do not believe salvation is the only way to eternal life (it is!!) I’m not here to tell you what you should believe, this blog and the book;Continue reading “Pieces of Salvation”

Pieces of Happenstance

Did you know that happenstance means “something that happens by chance?”  As bible-believing Christians, we don’t believe in luck, chance or coincidence.  We pray, hope and believe instead. The word coincidence is used only once in the New Testament, and it was by Jesus Himself in the parable of the Good Samaritan. In Luke 10:31,Continue reading “Pieces of Happenstance”

Confusing Pieces

Usually at least once a week I am mystified by a situation in my life and confusion sets in. Our first instinct is to fix it ourselves.  BIG mistake.  The more we try to fix, the bigger the problem becomes.  It’s as if we are taking one small hill and overnight turning it into aContinue reading “Confusing Pieces”
