The Road of Authenticity

Listening to a pod cast this week, and a phrase stuck out to me. Integrity is not perfection, it is authenticity. The speaker went on to say that many times we use the excuse that nobody’s perfect as a cop-out. It becomes a way to shrug-off a conviction to progress toward God’s plan of clean… Continue reading The Road of Authenticity

The Vision and Journey

I want to share my vision with you, my reading family and fellowship group. Back several years ago, as my family was coming apart, I would attend church and bible studies weekly, and come home feeling worse than when I left. Jesus had been a part of my life since I was 8 years old.… Continue reading The Vision and Journey

Catching the Act in the 4th

My family of origin was much like any other family. We had our good parts, crazy parts, parts no one discussed and all the rest.

As the radio played in the car, I searched about through the channels and found some holiday music. The… Continue reading Precious Humility

Tuesday calm

Ahhhh......a bit of a respite from the day to day. I am enjoying a little bit of space and time and the weather has cleared a bit. Love the fact it isn't raining and we were able to go on a walk. A refrain has been rolling through my head for a couple days..."...the wind… Continue reading Tuesday calm

Willingness and warmth

It has been mostly cloudy with some rain. Hardly any blooms left for me to bring in and put on my table to enjoy.  The sun does not shine on them long enough for them to really open properly, so my flowers stay closed up in tight little balls, waiting for enough warmth to open,… Continue reading Willingness and warmth
