When You Ask You Must Believe…{Yikes!}

Winter landscape with snow

Have you ever doubted a promise from God because deep down you believed the promise depended on you?

Been there. Done that.

Thank heaven that’s not how it works!  If you’ve ever felt the same I hope you’ll stop over to Deeper Waters Ministry. I’m tickled to share some thoughts on a portion of scripture from the book of James. [Read more…]

Living Life Abundantly

Last week I shared how sick and tired I was about feeling so stinkin’ behind. My parents were DoAhead people and they fared darn well. They inspired me.

Butt (that was on purpose) before I latched on to their way of life I wanted to study their way of life. I wanted to see what others had to say about this this business of catching up, keeping up and getting ahead of the behind. I looked online for information about being uber organized but often I ended up feeling worse instead of better. The “tricks” would work for awhile but than I’d fall off the wagon.

While talking to the plumber, I caught a glimpse of my special scented cucumber soap in the soap dish of the bathtub.  My plan to unwind  with a hot bath after everyone left provided some comfort in the midst of the confusion. [Read more…]

Magnificently Undone

Hawaiin Sunset 1

I’m in a plane (again). This time my view from 10,000 feet is a flocked “quilt” comprised of quartered land. The cold snow actually looks inviting from this perspective. Funny that I should be compelled to write about swaying palms and ocean tides.

In a previous post I mentioned that our tribe (minus the eldest) had the privilege of going to Hawaii. [Read more…]
