The church I attend sits on a hill, visible up above the highway nestled in the midst of our county's Comprehensive High School. Until recently it was very recognizable, with the traditional steeple rising toward the heavens, giving it a distinctive look. There was no doubt, when you looked up on that hill, you knew it … Continue reading Does the Church Look Abandoned?

The Neighbors Are Watching
I’m thinking this is another one of those “gotta get it off my chest” posts. I was in the prayer room at church last week. Seeing as how it was the week that included the National Day of Prayer, part of my prayer focus was for our nation; that same nation that seems, more and … Continue reading The Neighbors Are Watching
Looks Like a Lemon, Feels Like a Lemon, But….
I have to tell my Pastor that I really do listen to his sermons, even if some of my blog posts begin in my mind while he is speaking. <grin> Point in case, on a recent Sunday, the message was about fruit. He was talking about the fruit of the Church as a whole and our fruit as … Continue reading Looks Like a Lemon, Feels Like a Lemon, But….
Witness the Greatest Before and After!
Don’t you just love good “before and after” photos? Whether it is a room makeover, a beauty makeover, or even a healthy lifestyle makeover, seeing something transformed from the drab, ordinary, every day into something fresh and new is fascinating to see. I do love before and after photos, especially my own! I’d worked really … Continue reading Witness the Greatest Before and After!
A Vision of Faith that Leads to Freedom
I have just begun the second week of a six-week Bible study on Galatians. The first week ended up with the challenge to write your "history" in Christ. (So, some of you already know which Bible study I am referring to... intense, time consuming, spirit consuming, reviving and refreshing.) I have actually spent a couple … Continue reading A Vision of Faith that Leads to Freedom

What does it look like to be a woman that is dependent on God?
We Don’t Have to Look, We Are Home
I was thinking about the end of verse six in the 23rd Psalm and the part that says “and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever…” It just hit me that the “dwelling” part has already begun. As a Christian, God dwells within my being. As eternal people/souls, we are an eternal … Continue reading We Don’t Have to Look, We Are Home
Do You Look the Same as Everyone Else?
Due to human conditioning, most people don’t want to appear different. We want a smooth life, with as few bumps and bruises as possible. We don’t want to be considered odd, or peculiar, strange or unapproachable. We crave community, acceptance, symmetry with those that surround us. I have always been a wallflower, so I have … Continue reading Do You Look the Same as Everyone Else?
A Broken Heart Looks Like a Broken Heart
What did I get for an early Valentine’s Day Present? I got a renewed sense of how mean this world can be. Thanks world. Thanks. That is not something I really need to be reminded of. It is painful when someone wounds you so deeply that you can physically feel your heart hurt. It is … Continue reading A Broken Heart Looks Like a Broken Heart
Look Your Fears in the Eye in 2022!
My blindness is nothing! The small patch of vision that remains is enough for me to function in familiar situations without most people knowing that I have vision loss. Recently, I met a young man, totally blind and brave enough to take on the world, by himself. I was on the campus where my niece … Continue reading Look Your Fears in the Eye in 2022!
