The Glass is Not Half-Full

We’ve all heard it said that some people look at the glass as half-empty and others see the same glass as half-full. This week, I was thinking about where the Christ-follower should fit into this spectrum. The words from Psalms 23:5 popped into my head: “My cup overflows.” Early in the week, I was reading...

Pay Close Attention!

I grew up with my grandparents living right in my backyard. Their house was right behind ours, on my parents’ five acres of land. The older I get, the more I can see how their presence impacted my life. As a kid and a teenager, I loved to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. They... Continue Reading →

Contentment & Puppies

I enjoyed seeing friends and classmates and the place I used to live. I am just not a person who can come and... Continue Reading →

‘Boat Driver’ For The Lord

For four years, I was trained in navigation, ship handling, and leadership. Then I was sent out to be a deck watch officer on a Coast Guard medium endurance cutter. In less than a year, I was done. I was transferred off, having failed to meet the objectives of my training. This past Sunday, my... Continue Reading →

HE Sees me!

After I posted last week’s blog, I began to realize how far my focus had shifted from what was important. One of the things I strive to remember, as a single woman, is that my identity is not one who is overlooked by men, but one who is chosen by God. It is right there... Continue Reading →
