Made for relationship

Today I listened to my friend Amy talk about friendship on her radio show.  Coming home from a weekend like this leads one to think about friendship, about connection, about how our Creator intended for us to be in relationship with others.

Relationships that allow us to take off our grown up hats and put on our play time hats (or boas and beads as the case may be)

Relationships that allow us to relax.  To lean back into the knowledge that we are accepted for who we are in this moment.

Relationships that allow us to celebrate each others success without thought of competition or glory.

Relationships that make our hearts smile and our spirit sing

~A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words~

Expect the Unexpected

Today for Thankful Thursday, our host Lynne chose the theme of being thankful for the unexpected. Ha! That could be the theme of my life so I decided to do a little time line post of how God took the unexpected (to me, not to Him) and worked it for good in my life. TimeContinue Reading

The Waiting Game

Back in the spring of 2006, God put a strong call on my life.  I argued with Him (while crying, laughing and driving down a dangerous stretch of highway).  I told Him He definitely had the wrong girl.  But, God can be persistent (in case you didn’t know that). Fast forward three and a halfContinue Reading

Uniquely You

Today, joining with Laurie from Women Taking a Stand, we are being thankful for uniqueness. I think my readers are painfully aware of the things that make me unique so I thought I would point out some things I am thankful for about the ways the people I love are special to me, because ofContinue Reading

Thankful no matter what…

Today’s theme for Thankful Thursday is trials.  I think that is an appropriate topic for me to write about given the events of the last few weeks (or my whole life if you want to get technical). Some of you may remember that I broke out in (what they thought were) hives about six weeksContinue Reading

Thankful through the valley

This week, participating in National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness week, I made a conscious effort to not grumble or complain.  That is almost impossible but I did try.  Then I remembered that today would be Thankful Thursday and I could utter (or write, really) the words that very few people understand…I am thankful that IContinue Reading

Joy Cometh!

That is something Beth Moore said in her study on the fruit of the Spirit- Joy cometh!  Isn’t that a wonderful promise?  I have held on to it since I participated in that study last year.  Psalm 16:11 says You have made known to me the path of life: you will fill me with joy inContinue Reading

Thankful Thursday- My Life

Today Lynn is hosting Thankful Thursday and made the topic random.  That means I get to ramble   I am thankful for so many things.  Sometimes in the midst of trials it is easy to get overwhelmed and forget about our blessings.  Or forget that what seems like a trial is really nothing compared toContinue Reading

Thankful Thursday-Rewards

The Bible remind us in Luke 12:34 “that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”.  So often in our society we feel like we are entitled to rewards- the big house, the new car, the chic shoes.  I have been as guilty of this as anyone else.  Guilty of forgetting that myContinue Reading

Thankful Thursday- True Beauty

  Today’s Thankful Thursday theme is beauty.  My favorite verse on beauty is in I Peter 3:3-4 which says Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentleContinue Reading
