• Balancing Act

    This week has been a balancing act.  Completing homework assignments; working part time in retail; making sure that I pick up my younger daughter from school and take her to school; certainly make sure I have babysitting arrangements for the time I have her when I’m at work; accepting a new writing assignment; taking my […]

  • Letting the Creative Juices Flow…

    As I write this post, I am currently challenged in my school assignment to draw an aerial perspective painting.  Now since I love the graphic design field, and thought gaining some training on how to open up that creative flow would be the way to go, I am now at  an impasse.  I understand the […]

  • Creativity – Our New Culture

    Today’s post is about creativity.  What does that mean?  Is it different from individuality?  In today’s culture, creativity seems to be the standard for traditional as well as non-traditional jobs.  While watching a TV reality show for hair designers, it seems that things have gone to the extreme.  What used to be a standard of […]

  • Time for Change

    As I write today, and it has been a while since I added a post, I realize that change is imperative.  I look forward to that and yet, have some anxiety.  I am challenged today because for so many years I was trained to maintain the box.  Get myself trained, get a job, keep a […]

  • Have You Seen Jesus?

    Have you seen Jesus?  Who is He to you?  What does He look like?  What has He done for you?  What has He done in You? This post is just to put these questions out there for you to answer for yourself.  These are questions are meant to put you in a place of thought […]

  • God’s Masterpiece

    I want to speak about being God’s masterpiece today.  In our sermon from last night’s church service, I was blessed by the reminder that we are the masterpiece of God.  Each of us have the opportunity to allow God to mold us in such a way that we would be a work that would testify […]

  • Exalting the Lord

    This devotion was spent pondering the word exalt.  The definition includes to glorify; to praise; to elevate in rank,honor, power, character, and quality.  I looked into elevate, meaning to raise up; which is archaic or rare.  I want to use that definition today.  We need to raise up the Lord.  I realize that the Lord […]

  • Faith that Grows

    Devotion – John 4:46-54 (NLT) Faith is a gift that grows as we use it.  How do we recognize if we are walking in faith?  We say we believe, but our actions of anxiety do not portray the faith we say we have. (Phil. 4:6 – “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell […]

  • Grace

    Today as I read passages for my devotional, this word jumped out at me, grace.  I have been reading from the Amplified Bible and really enjoy it.  Why?  Because the definitions or meaning of the words are right there for your thought process.  I really like the definition of grace.  The passage of Scripture is […]

  • Mercy, Kindness, and Truth

    My Devotional today was from Proverbs 3:1-35. Reading from the Amplified Bible, there were several Scriptures that stood out for me.  The one I’ll elaborate on is Proverbs 3:3 – “Let not mercy and kindness (shutting out all hatred and selfishness) and truth (shutting out all deliberate hypocrisy or falsehood) forsake you; bind them about […]
