set your mind ...


if you came across my blog by accident ... it was a God thing ... because He wants you to take a break from all the negative chatter and scary scenarios that are being thought up for our earthly future ... HE has designed the forever future for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour ... accept the forgiveness Christ died to obtain for us ... if JESUS is  your Saviour,  nothing in this world can harm your eternal soul ... HE is risen!  so i'm going to set my  mind on the things above ... NOT on things on this earth ... my soul is at peace in my Redeemer ...

peace, peace, God's peace ...


everyone needs to rock on a porch ... listening to birds singing and crickets cherping ... i was blessed beyond measure to have a time like that in Georgia last week ... with my scarf sisters ... wonderful women i met through this blogging experience ... best of all - God's Spirit was there and we were refreshed ... it was a foretaste of heaven to come ... thank you Jesus!

a true story ... about the kindness of strangers ...



my mom had some cancerous tissue removed in the summer.  she had to fly from her small town to the big city for an appointment with cancercare doctors.   as fate would have it, there was a snow squall in her area, and the plane was over 2 hours late.  i phoned the clinic to inform them.  they were so kind and told me not to worry, to drive safely, get there when we could and they would juggle the other appointments around.  when the plane finally did land, we were 2 women on a mission, walking as quickly as an 80 year old and 60 year old could go!  as we headed out of the airport, a young man ran up to us and said:  "excuse me, but my wife over heard you talking to cancercare and i wonder if you wouldn't mind if i prayed for you?" ... WOW!  talk about surprised!  i thought he wanted a ride or something!!    LOL ...  we said, of course, please do.  we are believers too ... so this total stranger, put his arms around us and prayed the sweetest, most sincere prayer ... for mom's healing, for peace to be with us during the day ... and for wisdom for the people we encounter at the clinic ... IN JESUS name ... we said AMEN!

we didn't exchange names ...  we will always remember them as 2 lovely young people ... we did, however, exchange hugs ... then off we went ...

the rest of the day went by quickly and the people we met at the clinic were very very kind.  the internist who spent the most time with us, was a Muslim woman - she even had a veil across her face.  she did lower the veil when she was with us in the room (since we were all women).  she was most understanding with mom and took lots of notes and explained things very well.

at the end of the day, the treatment that was agreed upon for mom - was what she wanted and also least evasive ...

but the chance meeting at the airport, is what has sweetly lingered with both mom and i all week ...

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Hebrews 13:2

don't be a fool forever ...


in our crazy, upside/down world ... we really need to see what kingdom we are feeding?  and where does the love of our heart rest?  momentary?  or eternal?  

Choose JESUS ... HE wins in the end.

check your heart ... check your speech ... keep your eye open for any corrosion!


i have to keep checking my temperature ... daily ... it is SO EASY to slip into the cynical world of today ... yet i don't want to be a pollyanna either ... so i keep checking my pulse to make sure my heart beats for Jesus ... how 'bout you?

focus on the goal ...


i need to forget the things that have hurt me ... people who have betrayed my trust ... or have turned something positive into a negative ... God knows all our hearts ... i need to try and leave my burden at the cross and PRESS ON ... pray for wisdom ... and continue on the path set out for me ... my JOY in the LORD has always been my strength ... and heavenward is my direction ... keep me honest before You - my Lord and my Redeemer ...
