We’ve Only Just Begun

1 Timothy 4:8 (Amp) For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in every thing and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come. My physical appearance has always been a […]

De Do Do Do De Da Da Da

James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. When the traffic gets crazy AND you are already late, it’s hard to face being cut off and honked at with a cheerful or hopeful endurance.  When your husband has gone AWOL, the baby is crawling through […]

Control

1 Corinthians 9:4 Have we not power to eat and to drink? Our journey through 2 Peter 1: 5-7 has already been an interesting one and not all that easy to boot, but temperance (or self-control) just about ended the trip for me. I’ve spent the last several years learning, working, and pushing myself to […]

All I Know

Proverbs 23:12 “Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.” I am a know it all – just ask my children.  I know where their shoes have hidden themselves.  I know what we are having for dinner.  I know what time everyone is suppose to be everywhere.  I am a […]

A Change Is Going to Come

2 Peter 1:3 (Amp) “For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). Virtue is not something I would have equated with excellence.  In my mind, […]

Break On Through to the Other Side

2 Peter 1: 5 – 7 (KJV) “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.” The path to God’s purpose for each of us in life […]

Being a Good Wife

I want to be a good wife. So, what exactly is a good wife?  I know I’ve been struggling with this question the last few months.  If I was completely honest with myself, I’d admit I’ve been struggling since I first got married (but we won’t go back that far since I started out so […]

Do It All and Still Stay Sane

As a stay at home, work at home, homeschooling mom of three active boys, I tend to stay fairly busy. To add to the chaos, my husband is a pack rat who hates clutter. Over the last seven years, I’ve been struggling to find ways to meet all the demands that I face without losing […]

One Bite

Losing weight is as simple as taking it one bite at a time.  It’s just not all that easy for me.  I WANT to eat the rest of the country fried stead (or pizza or chocolate or pie).  I don’t need it.  I’m not even hungry any more.  But I WANT it. Today I prayed […]
