I’VE GOT THE POWER!…. 9/26/2021 …. Sunday …… Home Communion …

So much of our time is spent striving, working, trying to make a place within our control. It is not a pointless struggle; we can bring hope and encouragement by what we do and say. (Although my attempts at brushing my hair before I started this morning appear to have been quite useless, and thatContinue reading “I’VE GOT THE POWER!…. 9/26/2021 …. Sunday …… Home Communion …”

I STILL FEEL THE WORDS… 9/23/2021 …. Thursday

What words still resonate in your body? Were you told you were precious, precocious, picky, or a pest? Were you told you were a beauty or a brat? So smart or so stupid? Growing and learning or incapable and doomed to be a failure? Those words have power. What words do you find yourself using?Continue reading “I STILL FEEL THE WORDS… 9/23/2021 …. Thursday”

WHERE IS YOUR POWER?… 9/20/2021 … Monday …

I like to post right after I pray so it is fresh on my mind. Lately, I haven’t been able to get it all in. This week the scripture has a theme of power, not power over, but power with. Power with love, with listening, with caring, with the Divinity. Have you ever thought howContinue reading “WHERE IS YOUR POWER?… 9/20/2021 … Monday …”

I CAN DO ALL THINGS; YET, I SHOULD LET OTHERS DO SOME OF IT… 9/02/2021 … Thursday …

I think learning to let go of trying to do it all may be one of the most important lessons that I am learning. Since childhood, I have wanted to be a part of every activity: dance, scouts, piano, band, groups, clubs, school – sign me up! No wonder my mother had a hard timeContinue reading “I CAN DO ALL THINGS; YET, I SHOULD LET OTHERS DO SOME OF IT… 9/02/2021 … Thursday …”

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:

TREMBLING BONES… 7/23/2021

How do you handle those little, under-the-surface fears? The ones about your health, your abilities, your future, your family, your finances, your broken down car, etc.? Do you know what I am talking about? My prayer this morning is to keep affirming your faith in a Loving Holy Spirit who comforts, helps, advocates on ourContinue reading “TREMBLING BONES… 7/23/2021”

LEAN INTO PEACE—- June 1, 2021 —-

Does your feeling of peace get disrupted when you are interrupted? Does it disturb your calm to get a call in the middle of your prayer, especially when you discover it was spam? Do you become unsettled when something gets lost and you can’t find it? So many things can interrupt those feelings of peaceContinue reading “LEAN INTO PEACE—- June 1, 2021 —-“

FOLLOW THE LEADER – 5/12/2021

You are the Leader. It is not as obvious as the actual game, but there are those who follow you for guidance on how to handle their own surprises, problems, opportunities. We are not responsible for the choices others make. We can not make anyone follow us or listen to us. We are responsible forContinue reading “FOLLOW THE LEADER – 5/12/2021”

BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday

There are wounds in each of us, some very deep and very painful. These wounds can’t be healed by a wag of the finger or a smack across the head or by yelling, shaming, blaming. But they can be healed! I have seen people let go of the grip these wounds have on them. IContinue reading “BE HEALED!4/23/2021 Friday”

THEY DO WHAT?!4/13/2021Tuesday

Do not be afraid. Many times in scripture we are told to not be afraid. I sometimes wonder if what becomes “hate crimes” is out of a sense of fear. We have been assured of God‘s love and we can love others, all others. Offering God’s love to those who are different than us doesn’tContinue reading “THEY DO WHAT?!4/13/2021Tuesday”
