Be the Light in the Dark

I've never seen these lights off before. When I do get to visit home one of the things you can see first it the lights. First it a small glow but then it gets brighter, I know I'm close. In all of this craziness of the coronavirus, the lights of Vegas have been shut off. I'm not sure it's ever been done before.

Renew

Isaiah 40:31, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. A pretty well known verse. Renew here means "to exchange". As I read this today I wanted to jump up and say "yes!". This is something I've learned to do a lot more these last couple of years.

What is Peace?

In Sunday school Pastor wrote the word Peace in the white board and asked the class what comes to mind. I answered; "when the kids are all asleep and it's quite and still in the house". He going to tell me to stop answering soon. Ha! But, he did chuckle because he knew I was being facetious and truthful.

The Word Alive

Last post I told of how God is taking care of me through this challenging season. It is often a text or a call from a friend, a verse that "happens" to pop up that speaks to my heart or a song. Just little things that remind me how close He is and that He cares about me. This weekend it was a little more. I ended up attending The Word Alive Event.

What Made You Smile?

In a group of friends the question was posted "what made you smile this past year?". A few simple things come to mind quickly; my oldest turning 13 (yes this make me smile), my brother's wedding, going to a Hillsong concert. But, then my answer gets a little deeper. I look back on this year, this season that I'm in (for the last 2yrs) and I smile.

Christmas Countdown

My kids have loved having a christmas countdown and getting to move the candy cane one day closer to Christmas day! This year we had this advent book at work. It is so beautiful and the message even better. As you open it up there is an onement with one of the names of God on it. On the other side is a devotional about the name. I love getting to share this with my family this year.
