Military Life

Faith, Hope and Love

A lot of time has passed since I even looked at this website much less thought about writing again. I have found many outlets in which to vent, cry, share happiness and sadness with the ”world”. I came into this site to feel free to grieve. To hopefully find some peace and maybe even inspire [&hellip

A Daily Prayer

This was written in my daily devotional today. It is something I need to plaster on every mirror, in my car, on the inside of my Bible … any place that I look daily. It is something that I feel that I need to resound in my heart. (From the Universal Prayer attributed to Pop [&hellip

3 Small Words

My Bible study group is currently studying Genesis. You know… ”in the beginning…” I was reading Chapter 5 today and three little words stuck out at me. Chapter 5 is the genealogy from Adam to Noah. This is what I read… …Adam lived eight hundred years after he begot Seth… …Seth lived eight hundred and [&hellip

My Heart Aches

What makes your heart ache? What makes you feel like you don’t do enough? There is a man who stands on the corner near the entrance to our neighborhood. I have seen him periodically for about 6 months now. Today it was bitterly cold. You would only stand out there begging if you were completely [&hellip

Through Ups and Downs

”… his heart is steadfast, trusting the Lord His heart is tranquil, without fear.” Psalm 112:7b – 8a I like to say that in the military, nothing is final until you get your orders… and even those can change. It seems that we are always waiting to know what our next job will be, when [&hellip


”Be sure to fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all of your heart; consider what great things He has done for you.” – 1 Samuel 12:24 I have lots of Bibles. Each of them have served me in a season of my life and I have a hard time parting with them. I [&hellip

Standing Still

Do you ever feel like you are standing still? Time seems to be standing still? Like you are about to fall apart and break? You have your automatic responses… ”We are doing well”, ”we are busy”, ”life is so good”. It’s mostly true, but sometimes you don’t feel it and you say those things to [&hellip

Prayerfully Refreshing

My Bible Study is reading a book called ”praying the scriptures”. I had to stop and write about something I read that simply struck me. The author was speaking about Like 11:1 when the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. What proceeds is the Lord’s Prayer. The author then says, ”I am convinced [&hellip

Mouse Blessings?

I live in Army housing. (for those of you who also live in Army housing, I’m sure this paragraph will not surprise you) It’s not glamorous, but it serves it’s purpose. It’s old, but it has ”charm”. With that, you inherit problems that don’t always get fixed. Our house has been known to have problems [&hellip

You Are Mine

I am one that gets teary eyed when a song truly hits my heart. This is one that gets me every time. I will come to you in the silence, I will lift you from all your fear. You will hear my voice, I claim you as my choice, be still and know I am [&hellip
