He is Risen!

He is risen indeed! I know Easter was a whole week ago- but I can’t NOT share with you what happened on Easter Sunday… After several years of talking to my daughters about being baptized, they finally took the “plunge”! And what could make that even more special?! I got to baptize my daughters! It […]

this only do I seek

It might sound a little strange, but I think a lot about heaven and what it will be like. I can’t even wrap my mind around it, but I know the joy I experience when I spend time in His presence… and to experience joy like that for eternity- well, that’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING!! But you know what else I’ve been thinking about? How desperately I want EVERYONE I know to experience that same joy.

GO!

I think I think a lot about  nostalgic memories  how thing were, the way they are,  and what might come to be  too much time I spend in thought  so I thought that you should know    I think my motto for the year is simply just to- “GO”  My mind can be my own […]

no turning back

I have always loved hymns, and in particular, learning the stories behind how they were written.  The story behind I Have Decided to Follow Jesus is one that I found particularly moving… “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus” is a Christian hymn originating from India. The lyrics are based on the last words of a man […]

Hungry

You, Lord, are all I want!     You are my choice,     and you keep me safe.  You make my life pleasant,     and my future is bright. Psalm 16:5-6 (CEV) If you’re anything like me, when I start making good “diet” choices, those are the things that I begin to crave.  Like drinking water- that’s not really […]

The Secret

I remember years ago, when I first started taking piano lessons, how frustrated I would get.  I had been picking out chords and melodies by ear for several years before I actually began taking lessons.  It was so hard for me to train myself to follow all the new “rules” my piano teacher gave me.
