Thoughts On A New Year.

  “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9 It’s that time of year again. The time when yet another year (!) has already passed. In anticipation of a new year, people begin to make “New Year’s Resolutions.” (Some will keep them, many others will not.) People forget that every day... Continue Reading →

Where’s Your Heart?

It's 3 days until Christmas. It's time for a "heart check." I'll be honest here: my heart isn't exactly where I want it to be in order to welcome the Christ Child. Between school, my job, and physical preparations for Christmas, I'm shocked that it's almost the day we celebrate His birth. Where did the time... Continue Reading →

The Gratitude Groove

Lately, I'm trying to get into the "gratitude groove." What's that, you ask? To me, it's a way of life in which I'm continually praising God.

From Fear to Faith.

Just over a year ago, I posted this. The gist of the article was about my fears surrounding taking a huge life leap--a leap that would disrupt the stability of everything in my life. Believe me, it was a turbulent time. A year later, here I am. I'm still standing. I'm not in the same place, geographically,... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Thoughtfulness.

Each day, I see evidence of our Heavenly Father's thoughtfulness. Even when there are difficulties, He provides solace and blessings in the midst of those difficulties. Every single day, He is sending us "gifts" that reveal His great love toward us. Are we paying attention?  In my life currently, one of these pieces of evidence is... Continue Reading →
