In Perfect Peace

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:3‬ ‭ I knew it when I stepped out of the door this morning. I knew it when I backed out of the garage. I really knew it when I did a few whoop-di-loops in the yardContinue reading “In Perfect Peace”

“Don’t hide from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in deep trouble!”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭69:17‬ ‭ We’re in deep. Snow, that is. A blizzard which blew in yesterday brought lots of drama – highways closed, schools moved to online learning, events canceled, folks stranded. We were literally trapped in our yard. And I knew rightContinue reading “When You’re In Deep”

Terra Firma

“Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:165‬ ‭ January did not want to go down without a fight. It’s windy. It’s wild. It’s whipping snow around like we’re stuck sideways in a really big snow globe. So of course, Hubby has a plan. “Let’s go snowshoeing!” Ummm, wha? He’sContinue reading “Terra Firma”

That Stinks!

“She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.”‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭ They placed him on my chest – a wet, wiggling, precious package. My son. My firstborn. Hubby and I may have felt that weContinue reading “That Stinks!”

How Strange!

“Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you.”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭ We were enjoying a lovely family hike in the river valley when I first noticed it.

Visibility Issues

“For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭36:9‬ ‭ It’s a wild one. The snow is not falling – it is being driven.

When the Storm Blows In

“When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.”‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭10:25‬ ‭ I can hear it. The wind, I mean. It’s starting to pick up already. By the time you are reading this, the snow will be swirling, creating what we euphemistically call ‘winter driving conditions’. Quote-unquote.Continue reading “When the Storm Blows In”

Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way

“Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.””‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:2‬ ‭ “Do you want to go?” Wrong question. He should have asked, “Are you willing to go?” Because the two are very different. The first asks ifContinue reading “Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way”
