Marriage Monday – Do You Pray for Your Spouse?

After a great weekend at home it’s easy to thank God and pray for my husband. This morning as nearly every morning I used a book by Stormie Omartian, “The Power of a Praying Wife.” I know some of you are thinking I hate reading prayers or it’s just not the same. It’s not sincere […]

I’m Thankful for Marriage – Marriage Monday

It’s Marriage Monday. I haven’t forgotten. We’ve just been learning so much in the past few months it’s been hard to sort it all out into thoughts that can be shared. Have you ever had a time like that? The thoughts just keep rumbling around in your head and you can’t quite slow them down […]

Do You Believe?

And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches.” Philippians 4:19 I once went on a trip with a very wealthy businessman.  We stayed on the 8th floor suite in his luxurious condo overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  I woke up with the sunrise and enjoyed a peaceful run on his empty beach.  He […]

Take My Life and Let It Be

“I want Jesus to speak to me, to say many things to me, that I may speak for Him to others with real power. It is not knowing doctrine, but being with him which will give this.” – Frances Ridley Havergal 1873 She had me at that first sentence. Wow, somebody who understands that crazy […]

Are You Stuck in a Rut of Thinking?

When is it time? Since our family crisis of 2004 my husband and I have asked that question often in a lot of different context. His realization of abuse in his life and confessions of adultery that followed required soul searching, counseling, care of friends and family and time to heal. We have a new […]

Marriage Monday – Just Enjoying

Sometimes we need to just relax and enjoy the moment. We are finding that we want/need to do more of this. To just appreciate the moment and enjoy what we have. This weekend we did a pretty good job of that. Saturday we enjoyed our friends by helping them prepare and then celebrate their son’s […]
