Marriage - Finding a Moment to Pause

Hello Friends,

Have you taken a moment for your marriage today?

The question is a challenge to me. So often Lonny and I are running wild and we find that our marriage can easily slip behind the one hundred things on our to-do lists.

We're grateful for God's grace - sweet moments to pause.

Here's today's post:

May you have a blessed beginning to the week.

Just As I Am

Hello Friends,

It's Thursday already. I can't get over how the days pass by.

One of the most beautiful things about God's love for us, I believe, is that He doesn't wait for us to be cleaned up to come to Him. He welcomes us, wants us, in our fallen state of mess.

What a precious truth!

The one that saved me.

Here's the link to today's post at Guideposts:

Wishing you a warm and wonderful weekend. May you have time to breathe deep and experience the grace of His love.

Finding Peace and Rest

Hello Friends,

Happy Monday!

Do you ever find yourself in need of peace and rest? In today's post, I share about how my son's need for his well-loved blanket reminds me of a need of my own.

Have a wonderful start to the week. May you experience God's love in sweet and personal ways!

God's Far-Reaching Love

Good Morning Friends,

I've been finding peace in thinking of God's love for us - His desire to save us. To hold us close. To pursue us with His gift of grace. What a beautiful, precious truth.

I've written about it in today's post:

May you experience the sweetness of His love in a personal way today!

Parenting in the Middle of a Mess

Hey Friends,

Do you ever have one of those days?

Yep? I recently had one, too. It involved a bunch of boys, a mountain of towels, and...well, here's the link:

Avoiding Anger and Extending Grace

Happy Labor Day Friends!

I cannot believe that we're at the last weekend of summer. It's my favorite season - bittersweet to say goodbye.

I hope that this finds you with the sun on your shoulders.

Today I'd like to share about how the Lord is teaching me to avoid anger, ignore an offense, and extend grace instead. It's not easy. But it's okay to be a work in progress. I'm thankful for God's grace.

Here's the link:

Enjoy your day. Sending a hug - I'm thankful for you.
