Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." Words are powerful! They bring sweetness or mayhem, joy or pain. Our words can uplift and encourage or knock down and well, discourage. (Deep huh?) I was thinking about this scripture today. A bee wanders around from flower to … Continue reading Give me some Sweetness!
Hope springs from accepting where I’ve been and deciding to move forward.
True peace is a gift that no one should ever have the right to snatch away.
I wonder what ripples my life will leave after my drop in time has passed. Will they grow to be a wave strong and forceful, or will they fade slowly into the others unnoticed? Such is the nature of life, a drop in the bucket of eternity and it's gone in an instant. You welcome … Continue reading Ripples

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and … Continue reading All I am for all you are
The same phrase keeps resonating in my head this week, "Have you finished doing the last thing God asked you to do?" I'm thinking the answer is probably "no" but I can't remember the last thing he asked me to do, which makes me realize I'm not listening as well as I think I am, … Continue reading Listen

This arrangement makes it difficult to control myself especially when … Continue reading When to Speak
