Can You Spot The Savior

Can You Spot The Savior

I was enjoying a refreshing "Strawberry Acai Refresher Lemonade" from Starbucks recently and I saw a sign that had pictures of white cups and there were at least 30 cups on the picture but only one of them had a Starbucks emblem on it. The tag line at the bottom said, "It's not just coffee, it's Starbucks."

How Many Religions Does It Take To Change Your Light Bulb

How Many Religions Does It Take To Change Your Light Bulb

You only really need one…Jesus “Light Giver”
From the beginning of time God wanted light to shine upon the earth.   From the moment He spoke the words “Let there be light,”  to the day the Earth grew dark, when Jesus made His final sacrifice, God has been trying to bring light to our world.

Storms

Storms

We have been having a lot of storms lately in the state of Oklahoma where I live, and we are getting to the point where the rain is starting to stress people out. The tornados that come with the month of May have also been a bit of a pain to us. Often causing a trip to the closet for some, or a shelter if you have it, or in my case, grabbing the things that matter most and being ready to jump in the truck to leave the house. 

Needs vs wants

Needs vs wants

I want to look young so I buy face cream
I need medicine or my high blood pressure will get out of control.
I need them to spray for spiders at my house so I don't have panic attacks.

Feed My Sheep

Feed My Sheep

You Chose me.

You chose me at the beginning of time.

You looked into my future, before I was formed and decided just what my life would accomplish if I signed on with Your plan.

It took a lot to get me to the place where I could put my past behind me and move towards the goal of the prize.

What Is It About The Front Seat Anyway

What Is It About The Front Seat Anyway

When my kids were little I can remember the endless fights about who got to sit in the front sit. Do you have those days? “Me, I call shotgun!” “No me first, mommmmmm!”

Breathe

I was digging through old stuff I had from when I moved to Bradds and I found some old cd’s. I found one I haven’t listened to in forever. “Take me to your leader” by the Newsboys.  I loved this cd when I first purchased it in 1996 and I knew I would enjoy it just as much today so I looked it up on Apple Music and began listening to the old familiar songs. I was surprised to discover even after more than 23 years I still have the songs memorized. 

Live While You Can

Live While You Can

A friend gave me CD back in 2003 and one of the songs on it called Ordinary Day had the phrase “Live While You Can”.  This really stood out to me. For the next few days I listened to the song over and over and got me to thinking about my life. Even though I have been alive for  48 years, I have never really “lived” before age 36 when I heard these lyrics.

Have you ever had one of those days when you see memories? Old pictures of your life you used to have, you see those photos of the life you imagined you once planned and you just tear up. You don’t miss the old life, its more a sadness for the life you imagined you were going to have, and you feel like a bit of a failure for letting your kids down, and even yourself too because things didn’t go like you thought they would. You feel like so many of your dreams wasted. 

Bring It

Bring It

There is a movie called “Bring it on” and it’s about cheerleaders who have a mission and in order for their mission to succeed they challenge each other to “Bring it!” Some of you may be wondering what that means, well simply put it means you hold nothing back, you give 100%; give all you have to the task at hand.
