Summer Fun, Summer Love – Eleuthera Style

Helllooooo, I am still alive 🙂 and kicking! It’s summer and I am taking a well needed break from pretty much everything other than breathing! Actually, I’m still editing weekly for my newest project, The Journey, which you really ought to visit! And of course I am still taking care of home, but I’m doing…

The ‘Other’ Embrace

The ‘Other’ Embrace Hold me close, let your love surround me. Lead me near, draw me to your side. – “Power of Your Love” by Darlene Zschech This is what I want it to feel like, like the words of this song. This is what my relationship with God is supposed to invoke, if I’m…

Just Do YOU!

The people in my house are loud. Unquestionably loud. Deafeningly loud. I, however, am quiet. How quiet? Church mice might occasionally ask me to speak up. I’m out-numbered by my husband and kids, four of the most loving, tender, and funny people you could ever meet. They also happen to be completely audible from any…

Looking At Your Own Life

When I’m feeling exceptionally sorry for myself (as though I have a reason to) I sometimes try to remember that all around there are people who are ‘worse off’ than me.

Before I get back into the swing of writing monthly devotionals I want to say thank you to everyone who participated in The Project! In 2016 I’ll be turning it…

The ‘little’ Project

Hey everyone, if you’re popping over from FB or from the e-devotional, thanks for stopping by The Journey! November is an exciting month for me, not just because it’s a fantastic month to have a birthday (winks and nudges to all my girlfriends), but it’s the launch of “The ‘Little’ Project”.  If you are like…

Let It Go: God Will Give It Back

Exactly two thirds of what I had left. If I gave what the Spirit instructed me to give, it would be two thirds of the money left in my wallet. I wondered if it was worth it, if I could afford it, if I was being foolish, fiscally irresponsible even! I tried to do some…
