2.25.2022 – Living in the Moment-by-Moment with Him

As I’m sitting here at the table this morning, I’m listening to the cheeping sound of around 50-60 baby chicks that are currently in our living room… It’s a sweet little sound. 🐣 There’s a lot going on in our world right now.

4.20.2020 – “My God, in Him I will trust.”

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the year 2019 was one of the hardest years Jason and I have ever faced together. Many of the things we faced left us feeling pretty “helpless” at times β€”though we always knew where (or Who) our help came from. We had a few trusted loved ones who… Read More 4.20.2020 – “My God, in Him I will trust.”

There are times in the mornings that I wonder if there’ll be anything for me to write.

I often find myself wondering, “What’s next, God? What’s coming? What’s ahead?

This morning has been interesting… and I think the best way to write about everything that is on my heart, is to simply document the “trail”… I opened up my bible to 2 Chronicles Chapter 22.

Haven’t these times been interesting?
