One of my favorite lines in Jerry Maguire is when he's trying to win his girl back and keeps babbling and then she says, "you had me at hello". Hello! First impressions are so very important in every aspect of our lives. Most people decide how they feel about us in the first minutes they meet us. After that, the strength and depth of the relationship hinges on time spent together and mutual respect. I've taken these simple letters today and put together a very simple thing to remember… Continue

I received Christ about 15 years ago and my relationship with Jesus has been great, as long as I'm just as thankful and loyal as God is.  I was married to a "christian" girl for eight years and been since divorced 3 years ago.  I thought that my MS diagnosis also 15 years ago was the toughest thing i would have to fight, but divorce threw me for a mental breakdown, 

Upon my divorce i threw caution to the wind and sinned relentlessly with women and drugs enough to kill anyone normal,…

A Kodak Moment

After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Mark 9:2-4

It's hard…

The Talk of the Town

Mark 5 tells a story about what happened one time the disciples and Jesus made it to the other side of the lake. As soon as Jesus hit the shore he was met by a madman. The Bible says “He lived there among the tombs and graves. No one could restrain him-he couldn't be chained, couldn't be tied down. He had been tied up many times with chains and ropes, but he broke the chains, snapped the ropes. No one was strong enough to tame him.”
You don’t have to go much…

One of Peter's Prayers of the Bible

Peter Impulsive Peter.....aren't we a bit like you and yet you seem to get the bad "rap" because  your  there in the Scriptures always adding your 2 cents attempting to "help" out the Lord Jesus with your idea of how things should or shouldn't be done.

           Peter, out of all your prayers of the bible, this one has got to be the most incredibly bold one that possibly could be prayed: "Master, it is good for us to be here: and…

Use YOUR Mat!

In John 5 there is a story of a gathering of sick people by the pool of Bethesda. There was a man there that had his condition for 38 years. Jesus makes a visit and asks him a simple question: "do you want to get well?" He begins to make excuses for his condition, he blames others, timing, everything and everyone but himself. But Jesus is merciful and his grace is ALL sufficient. And like everyone else who encountered Jesus , this man is raised up healed and was off the… Continue

14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it,…

Who we shall become (my quiet time thoughts)

I Corin. 13:12 "For now we see in a mirror indirectly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I have been fully known."  It is hard to get past who I see in the mirror.  The person I know I am when no one is looking.  But for the person who is a follower of Jesus, I cannot ask myself who am I but who am I becoming?  It is through Him and His unselfish, ultimate act of love on the cross that I…

Taking Faith by Storm

This morning I woke up extremely early, about 4am, because I had a startling yet comforting dream.  The dream took place in my home where I spent most of my life and my parents still live.  In the home, in my dream were my parents, my sister, my brother and sister-in-law and my niece.  I dreamed four tornadoes spawned in the field across the street from ours as I was looking out the front window.  We all hurried downstairs to the basement and I ran to the window at the back of the house…

God's blessing

Hi everyone, just want to let you know that this past Wednesday I had my first therapy session. I never had one before and it had taken me to places I wasn't ready to face but I'm glad it through my church, who know that my church first lady is a license therapist and all my sessions are free and we're meeting on Wednesdays. I never saw this coming but God work in mysterious places when we don't expected it. He is there in the center of it all and I'm looking forward to reach a place were I'm… Continue

My friendship has an anchor

That shows how far its depth

of love will go.

When my anchor hits the bottom core

and I've given all there is to lose

Who can know, or must choose

whether my friendship and my

anchor can go deeper still, or

whether I must move my friendship

and my anchor to deeper waters.

Where it has another chance to

prove its love

To go deeper still, and never go

to the surface…

My Mother,s Day Weekend

I  would just like to share with you how my Mother's Day weekend went, hectic, busy, but very fun. I am temporarily laid off until the end of June so I decided I am going to take this time to do some work at home but also to have some fun. So,  I heard of the Mother-in Daughter banquet they were having locally and invited my stepdaughter, daughter-in-law, and soon to be daughter-in-law and two of my little grandaughters to go. My stepdaughter had to work but she allowed us to keep our… Continue
