The Brokenhearted Seat

Last Sunday, I went to church early to pray over the seats. I walked each row, touching each chair and praying in the Spirit. In the past, the Lord sometimes gave me specific things to pray over different seats, but this Sunday I just prayed general prayers as I walked.

Couldn't We All Have Been Part of the Crowd in Ferguson?

This morning, I happened to be at these verses in my walk through the Gospel of Matthew.

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Matthew 9:35-38, NIV, emphasis mine)

For Better or Worse, Part 3: Offense

Fitness Friday: Holiday Food for Thought

My friend April made this yummy treat.
It's a paleo recipe, no sugar or flour!

For Better or Worse, Part 2: Weariness

Why doesn’t God answer my prayers? Doesn’t He care?

Maybe He’s waiting for me to do something. I know what I can do…

Nip It in the Bud

Recently, Don and I left around 6:45AM to visit my nephew at 9AM. We were running late, again, despite leaving on time. Pokey drivers and school busses slowed us down. If only we would have left early as planned. I so hate being late!

For Better or Worse - Series Introduction

Tomorrow, Don and I will celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. We said our vows in the church prayer room with a handful of witnesses on November 13th, 2000. Like most weddings, our vows included “for better or worse, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, til death us do part.”
