The e-mail came in and fear instantly griped me. I’ve been walking with the Lord now for over 20 years. You’d think nothing would shake my trust in the Lord yet here I was struggling with fear. Confusion swirled around in my head and my reactions to my children became short. My Spirit longed for…

Loved

Rejuvenation fills my soul as I bask in the presence of our Heavenly Father.  The wind rustles the trees around me, the birds chirp and squak at one another, the rain sets in and I dash to a perfect spot nestled under the trees away from the rain. He’s our life line in the midst…

Sleep deprivation has slowly set in from multiple sleepless nights with a one month old. Yet there has been a bright side, as I’ve breastfeed I’ve been reading inspirational books. At 4am I ran across this quote from Mountain Man (an autobiography of James Fraser).  “There is no such thing as a spiritual victory if…

Kisses from Jesus

The morning air was thick with heat as we briskly walked to Esperanza’s school. Her voice filled the sky as she belted out ” Oh oh my soul. I worship your Holy name….” Suddenly as we passed the flowers that have continued to blossom in the summer heat she launched into how much she loved…

Letting Go
