time to Pause ...


I hurry around a lot … sometimes I seem to spin my wheels needlessly!  BUT, when I stop and pray … stop and just "be" with Jesus … life is MORE enjoyable … and less stressful …

the life we live ...

my prayer for 2020 … I don't want to be religious … I want to be a follower of Jesus … to live, breath and be a child of God ...

the year of prayer ...


we have an awesome GOD ... who listens and acts on our behalf ... let this be the year we spend more time with HIM, so that when we pray - we unleash the Power of the Holy Spirit.

JOY!


the JOY of the Season is what I am experiencing today.  For the "joy set before Him" … Jesus came … and if remembering His birth gives everyone joy, kindness and such peace - what will eternity with HIM be like? … happy thought …

Jesus is the light … the most joyous place to be, is in HIM …

some things take time


the quote is from my devotional … so appropriate for our day and age where everything has to be instant … some things just aren't and never will be … they just take time …

the goodness of God

the picture taken after a rain/wind storm … I was walking across a footbridge and the stuck on leaves caught my eye … and Psalms are ALWAYS full of note worthy sayings … relatable, even after thousands of years … God uses the everyday to get my attention …

repost ... answered prayer ...

this was a post I wrote after we were able to find a condo in the tight real estate market in our small community … we had been praying for a year … this post is 13 years old yet the praise for answered prayer is still on our lips!  GOD is good!

the sale of our cottage, finding the rental and now, finally, the much prayed for condo - all these moments i have shared with you ...

tonight is the last sleep before we get the keys to answered prayer - imagine!

if you have the time, take a journey with me into my archives ... to see how the Lord directed our path to arrive where we are today ...

the cottage we had lived in for 14 years, sold dec 2, 2005 ... we felt so strongly that God was in it ...

next came the realization we didn't have anywhere to move!

then the Lord gave me verses to cling to, through a scary time
click here that started the long list of "no" answers to places we wanted to buy click here

even finding a rental seemed to be extremely difficult
click here, though God was up for the task! click here

my anxieties continued, until i had to "fire" the hardworking saija, and let God deal with everything ... click here


after much searching and prayer ... God just "dropped" the condo into our laps!

He HAS given me the desire of my heart ... but in the end - it is only God - not possessions or people or places ... that IS the DESIRE of my HEART...

to HIM be the Glory ... now and forever more ...

yup yup ... only one more sleep ... *grin*

My soul shall be joyful in my God ..."
