Take the BEST option

Look ahead through a lens of HOPE. We are free to choose a good idea, a better thought, or the BEST way to go. If the lens on our view of life is dirty with dust from the past, the picture we capture of the world and of ourselves develops into a blurred, unpleasing snapshot.…

Falling Leaves

September 22 was the first day of FALL- but alas, it has NOT arrived in Mexico— yet. Preparing for it thrills as I hunt to locate my comfy jams and sweaters. A shopping list began to elongate with memories of an aromatic crock pot brewing a stew or a pot of Chili. Great expectations are…

Brain Sweep

Knowing how your brain works is invaluable! The wise open their minds and obey God when they take time to examine not only their hearts, but what patterns of thought are stuck in the brain’s immense filing cabinet. God says “Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.” Proverbs 29:11…

A Day of Joy

Have you ever ENJOYED a “suddenly” moment in your life? It suddenly dawned on me today, how very blessed I am! As we live and breathe by the extraordinary grace of God, I pray you get swept up in a marvelous SUDDEN moment where you feel the Holy Spirit swirling within you. Today we all…

They mature to understand and appreciate the protection of hearing “NO” that is not acceptable behavior. “The Lord disciplines those He loves.” Proverbs 3:12 As functioning adults we can look back and appreciate how our parents…
