Soul Care Part 1: Prayer

February is the month of love. On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the love we have for others by giving chocolates, cards, and flowers. Yet, we often neglect to care for ourselves on a daily basis.

Soul Care Power

We’ve all been inundated with New Year’s resolution messages. Exercise, eat healthier, take your vitamins, put YOU first. Each message implies, if you fix the outside, you’ll feel satisfied, happy, and fulfilled. Rarely do we hear about soul care. Caring for our soul is as important for long-term health. Without caring for our inner self, […]

Supportive Wings

The ice shimmers in the morning dawn, dark and light blend together like a freshly found diamond. Supported by the ice, birds gather and wait.

Though smaller than the nail of my […]

This is the day the Lord has made.We will rejoice and be glad in it.Psalm 118:24 Walking up from the water, my face lights up, I’ve come upon an unexpected surprise. A lovely bunch of daisies have sprouted up and bloomed in our perennial garden. They were not there last year. I have no idea […]

Source of Joy

Over the last few years, as I was going through dialysis and waiting for my kidney transplant, people often remarked on my joyful spirit. I explained my joy was part of the way God wired me and I have always tended to approach life with a joyful spirit. I shared how God was sustaining me […]

Strong Foundations

15 tons of gravel have been brought in by bobcat, scoop by scoop, carefully laid, 2” at a time to create a secure foundation for an 18” retaining wall. Added is a large spool of geo grid to help secure the wall being built. This wall supports the patio which will be laid on top, […]

God Sustains

Beyond the Crash: Experiencing God’s Sustaining Power to Persevere

This month, I share how God’s sustaining power helped Brenda Beigl through a horrific crash. Brenda attends my church, and as I’ve watched her recovery after her accident, I’ve seen her persevere through many challenges and push through the pain from her accident. Her ability to persevere is a direct result of her relationship with […]
