How to Create an Online Inspiration Board + Free Worksheet

Inspiration Board

Since we're all homebound for a while, it's the perfect time to give it a try. Children will enjoy it too! So,...

30 Meaningful Things to Do If You’re Self-Quarantined

30 Meaningful Things to Do If You’re Self-Quarantined

Well, those are words I never expected to type, but here we are. I'm not in a panic over the Coronavirus, but it's true that some, perhaps many of us, may end up self-quarantined or otherwise homebound. But here's the thing:   Every opportunity holds the potential to become meaningful.   Be very careful, then, how you live -- not as unwise but as wise -- making the most of every...

Tea for Two // A Quiet One-on-One Gathering with God

Tea for Two // A Quiet One-on-One Gathering with God

Gathering each week to worship the One true God is life-giving. Gathering with the One, quiet and alone, is a sacred delight.   This gathering requires no preparations. Simply come.   Sometimes, especially after a hard season in life, or in the middle of one, I find comfort in setting an intentional table for two. This tea time with God isn't a weird "fluffy feel good" practice....

Engaging Our Five Senses on a Rainy Day

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Literally. I know, I know. It goes against everything we learned growing up. Bow your heads and close your eyes. To do anything different seems awkward. But within my four walls, I welcome the difference, always praying with my eyes wide open. When it comes to praying with others, however, I cave to tradition.   I don't want to look weird or feel out of place -- and my spirit groans...

3 Ways to Pray More Intentionally + A Tiny Journal Giveaway!

Intentional is my "one-word" for the year. Some think the one-word movement is hokey. I know because that was me not so long ago. And yet, in a world that tugs on us with the same fervor as a hungry toddler, embracing a word that points us to the Word offers an intentional act that can help us stay focused.   Many areas in life deserve more intentionality on my part, but none more than...

5 Ways to Prepare Our Soul for December and a Christmas Gift for You!

  I know, I know. Here I am mentioning Christmas and we've not even carved a turkey yet. But there's a good reason, maybe two. In last week's Tiny House Tuesday, I shared how this would likely be the final 2019 post due to dad's recent surgery. {Thank you for your prayers. He continues to recover well.} Also, despite the desire to create "Silent Night" December days, the real soundtrack...

Tiny House Tuesday // A NEW Front Door Color!

  I tried. Really, I did. If you read Tiny House Tuesday's The Red Door No More, you might remember the giddiness that erupted after painting the front door chartreuse.   For months, the color lived up to its name ⏤ Frolic.   She was a bright pop of color during the day, but when night fell, the color glowed in the dark like a fluorescent beam on steroids. Bless her heart. The...

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

"I have a little news to share." I knew dad was taking medicine for a recent issue but it turned out the medicine was no match for the mass occupying most of his bladder. With the biopsy looming two weeks later, I protected my thoughts like a mama bear, refusing to allow "what if's" to sink in and do their damage.   There's a comforting thread of normalcy that hangs in the air between...

Why does the enemy want us to think this? Because Why does the enemy want us to think this? 
Because future generations we’ll never know may read, see, or hear of the work God produced through us — whether that’s loving our families well, working as unto the Lord, preaching, teaching, praying, writing or painting — whatever that is, may this be said of us: “Whoever they were...they belonged to God. It’s clear that they believed the stories of Jesus were true, and it gave them a hope that made their lives beautiful in ways that will unfold for ages among the linnea that shimmers in the moonlit woods.” A. Peterson

So let’s continue loving, living, writing, painting, etc. And for goodness sakes, let us sing!

If this mug could talk it would tell of the years If this mug could talk it would tell of the years my grandmother enjoyed a Friday night drive to Krispy Kreme for coffee and a warm glazed doughnut.

I remember climbing up on the green stools rimmed in silver and granddaddy ordering my favorite doughnut...the tart. Oh yes, a chocolate glazed doughnut topped with whip cream and a cherry. The three of us sat on the stools and enjoyed many a Friday night at Krispy Kreme.

So when I spotted this mug in an antique store, I knew it was mine. Coffee will fill it, but it’s the memories that will overflow. 💕
