May 2013



Ask yourself: can I speak as boldly and confidently about my life as Paul did regarding his?

7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing
2nd Timothy 4:7-8

This past weekend my one and only child graduated from High School. Friends and family came from every direction to celebrate her 13 years of hard work and dedication. (I am counting Kindergarten also 🙂 ).

Of course no celebration is complete without food and we had plenty of that (all weekend long).

A Tribute to Mothers

Happy Mother’s Day!

This was originally posted in May of 2013, and many of you enjoyed reading it so I thought I would share it again.

Proverbs 31 NKJV
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.

One of the most precious gifts that God has granted us is our mothers. God only can love deeper, and stronger than a mother. She possesses so many of the characteristics of God. She is patient and self sacrificing, she loves unconditionally, she always sees the best in her children, she protects them, and she is so honored to care for each one of them. She has the ability to make each child feel as though they are her favorite of all. She nurtures and acknowledges their gifts and talents. A mom is her child’s greatest cheerleader; she is their source of security.

Women and Friendships

Proverbs 18:24 (KJV)
24 A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

My Dear Sisters, today I would like to explore what it means to be a great friend. I am concerned that so many friendships are thrown to the wayside and discarded like yesterday’s newspaper; and usually over something very minor. We are so quick anymore to take our toys and leave the sandbox headed straight for home.

We are no longer as willing to talk and work patiently through situations. As Christian Women we are to go to one another directly and speak to each other one on one in love and not judgment, when we have differences. We are to be the examples Christ would have us to be, to our sisters, daughters, nieces etc. Christ showed us everything we needed to see in the characteristics of a great friend.
