Settle out of court

Dear friends, As the new year begins, everyone is ‘cleaning house’ in a variety of ways. Some are organizing their household and purging clutter. Some are chucking all the junk food, eating leaner and healthier. Others are taking stock of their lives and making changes to up their game. One that I’ve been thinking of lately has to do with forgiveness. That’s a kind of clutter in our souls that weighs us down in many different ways, some we may not be aware of. Consider this verse: “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do

A true act of goodwill always sparks another.

Dear friends, On this, the first day of the new year 2020, my thoughts are focusing on the impact of our acts of goodwill. Before Christmas we spent a weekend with our youngest son Steve and his wife Rachel in Fayetteville, AR. One night we watched an animated Christmas movie called Klaus. The story was about a town of people who held years of grudges, were polarized by what they were against and energized by what they disliked about each other. The truth is, we never win by trying to destroy who or what we’re against, we win by nurturing

Arise shine, for your light has come!

Dear friends,  This verse is calling to you – can you hear it?  Wherever season you are in, whatever your level of maturity, you don’t have to be perfect to allow the light within you to shine. Jesus said he didn’t want us to hide our light under a bushel, he wanted us to let it shine.  You have been created by God Himself. He didn’t make junk. He created you in His likeness. And Christ in you is the hope of glory! He has re-made you, removed your sin nature and enabled you to shine in a way that

Give Thanks and Eat Pie!

Dear friends,  Wherever you are this Thanksgiving, whoever you are with, I pray that you will take this opportunity to give thanks for your blessings, and to eat pie!  My mother in law had the most incredible recipe for pumpkin pie that became my go-to for Thanksgivings in our family ever after. She imparted and passed down much more than her recipes! She was a mature woman of character and kindness – full of love and joy. She died young from cancer but her loving caring ways were passed on to her son, Michael, whom I was fortunate enough to

Is it time to begin?

Dear friends, Sometimes you sense the winds of change are blowing. You’re outgrowing something, or bored with something, or a season has changed but you don’t know what’s next. You just know it’s coming. The truth is that we can always count on the fact that things will change! We may not have chosen these changes, but there’s one thing we do have a choice about. Progress! As I was journaling one day this phrase came to me, Change is inevitable, progress is optional. You choose! Even the hard things that happen in our lives can be an opportunity for

Do you want the Prince, or just the Principles?

Dear friends, The words in the headline above came out of my mouth at our home group last night. Everyone encouraged me to write about it so I am! We were reading the book of Acts chapter 28. It was so very evident that the religious people of the day were just not able to understand what Jesus was all about because they were so steeped in their traditions and the principles they lived by. Jesus is all about relationship not religion! What’s the difference you may say? Religion is about getting a set of rules and principles you live
