    Hey, Friend! About Your Thanksgiving Thankfulness…

    Do you look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings with excitement?  Or, do you have a little bit of dread tucked inside the deep recesses of your heart?  Holidays can be extra testy if you or a family member has illness, if you have a prodigal, or when you face any number of other issues.  It could be that you have just a regular ol’ normal  dysfunctional family. While I pondered this year’s festivities at my house, I wondered how it will be for you.  Thanksgiving isn’t always like the Hallmark cards and movies with happy endings, all tied up in a nice pretty bow.  I’ve already begun streaming those…

    The Blesser

    Are you thankful October is here?  And for cooler temperatures?  Fall is my favorite season of the year.  Each day begins with praise to the Lord for His goodness, His Lordship, His gorgeous creation…the intricate design in the leaves…pumpkins…apples and cinnamon, and on and on it goes.  I savor my Lord as I end my time of praise and head to the kitchen for a soothing and delicious turmeric/ginger/cinnamon latte.

Your prayer list should be on your…

    30-10 Praise Challenge is Here!

    This praise challenge is the perfect way to renew your mind and bring peace and joy to your life! All week, I have been looking forward to sharing this with you – this thirty days of praise for ten minutes each day.  I’m so excited for you!  You will quickly feel renewed and energized – more in love with the Lord than ever.  Loving life again – afresh.  Whether you’re a little sad these days, somewhat depressed, greatly shaken, or singing happily, praising God will transform your life. What prompted me to write this challenge of praise? I hate to admit I’d become very hard to live with.  (Poor hubs!) …
