  • Purpose and Gifting…Most of all Understanding

    God is not slack concerning His purpose for your life and when you need additional clarity, He’ll give it to you. It may be in an actual experience, in reading, in listening, in seeing or just plain silence.

  • Life is too short…

    Life is too short… Realizing the depth of the pain of loss from death can be overwhelming. A close friend has recently experienced the loss of a loved one from death. I understand that I cannot touch her pain but I did experience pain for her in that loss. The thing about death that separates […]

  • Personal Sabotage

    PERSONAL SABOTAGE I spoke a couple days ago about the shoes we are given for our journey. And, while I definitely pointed out that we share our journey with others, whether we want to or  not, I also want to share my thoughts on personal sabotage. As I have been reflecting, and I do a lot […]

  • God’s Masterpiece
