This post is a little different from my standard posts. I'm sharing with you what I wrote this morning while reading my Bible. Last night was a particularly difficult night for me. This morning, Is brighter because His word brings life and hope. Hopefully, you can glean something from it that will encourage you today. … Continue reading It is Enough!
There once was a man named Naboth. You'll find him in I Kings 21. He had a vineyard. The only problem with this vineyard was that it was just a little too close to the residence of a certain king named Ahab. Ahab decided he wanted an herb garden and offered to buy Naboth's vineyard. … Continue reading Don’t Settle for Seasoning
There they were in the garden. Man created in the image of God. A single rib taken to craft stunning beauty, a helper designed with detailed intent, a companion worthy of him. The crowning achievement of the Father warranting an affirmation of "goodness" from the lips of the one who'd just spoken the world into … Continue reading Who Told You that You Were Naked?
I come from a long line of stubborn women. I too, am stubborn and opinionated. It's just a fact, plain and simple. It can be a gift.
