WALKING AWAY

People are nasty to each other these days.  Let’s just put that out there.  We all have felt it to some degree or another.  Social media is destroying relationships all over the place. No one talks face to face much anymore and we’ve known since email days – people cannot HEAR or SEE your emotions… Continue reading WALKING AWAY

Why God Created Satan

My daughter asked me THE QUESTION today and I had to come up with an answer to something that is hard to understand for all of us: “Mom.  Why did God create Satan when He knew Satan would do all these bad things?”

WHY I CHOSE NOT TO BE A VICTIM.

I’m watching the world today and it angers me.  It angers me because I see a bunch of “victims” on my TV….daily…hourly….moment by moment.  Now, I’m not going to bash them in this blog because we hear it all day long from everyone.  We know the society we are living in, as deplorable as it… Continue reading WHY I CHOSE NOT TO BE A VICTIM.

Pagan, Pagan, Pagan! UGH.

Here we are again, approaching Easter and what word is flying around again?  PAGAN.  It seems every year around Christmas, Easter, and Halloween we get to hear this word over and over and over again.

MOTIVATION

ARE YOU LACKING MOTIVATION IN YOUR LIFE? Scripture tells us: Colossians 3:23-24 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. WHATEVER we do, do it HEARTILY….as unto the Lord….as… Continue reading MOTIVATION
