DISCOVERED. DISAPPOINTED… Tuesday with Ryan! … 8/3/2021

I typed “disappointed” into my phone. At least, I thought I did. When I looked back over it, “disappointed” was now “discovered”. That is more positive! But not quite the same. But I liked it and decided to leave both words. I left both words because it made me think of the Olympics. Those athletesContinue reading “DISCOVERED. DISAPPOINTED… Tuesday with Ryan! … 8/3/2021”

FOR HARMONY AND JOY… 7/27/2021 … Tuesday and Ryan

And for World Peace! I love the Olympics and the possibilities that they hold. I pray for their safety, joy, goodwill, encouragement, and inspiration! Ryan is with me and his patience is running out with this sitting still, so here is our prayer:

BUILDING UP… 7/26/2021… Monday!

What do you love to do? How can you use that love to care for others, to offer encouragement, to build up? Sometimes I can beat myself up thinking that I mess up everything, that I can’t do anything well. But is that what really matters? Getting a gold star, blue ribbon, A+ on everything?Continue reading “BUILDING UP… 7/26/2021… Monday!”

The celebration of Christ’s TableContinue reading “….YOU ARE SOMEBODY….….. Sunday, 7/18/2021…. … Home Communion …”

THE ADMIRABLES …7/16/2021 …… Friday Flames …

What will you do to earn a Gold Star or some other prize? I have blown bubbles with Super Bubble to win a t-shirt, raced to look up Bible verses to win a Bible, dressed up for Jazzercize to win an exercise shirt, and other sorts of crazy.

I AM HERE….. 06/23/2021 …..

Paul tells the Corinthians, “Do you want to be the best in something? Do you really want something to brag about?

THE POWER OF LOVE – TAKE TWO— 6/3/2021 —-

True power is found in Love. So often, I hear about the power to overcome, the power to succeed, the power of this, the power of that. Our society has so many ideas of how to gain power and how to help bring good. It is fascinating to me to see pictures of brain imagingContinue reading “THE POWER OF LOVE – TAKE TWO— 6/3/2021 —-“
