Holidays and Holy Days

Holidays and Holy Days

I woke up, made me a cup of coffee, and sat down in my “prayer chair”.  I decided today in my quiet time that it would be all about Jesus.  I wasn’t going to ask Him for anything.  I was just going to thank Him, praise Him, and worship Him.  I planned to be still […]

My heart and soul cry out, “Life is short!”

My heart and soul cry out, “Life is short!”

It is very hard for me to believe–this month I turn 60! It seems in the blink of an eye I was 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years old. It seems like yesterday I started first grade, attended my first prom, graduated from high school, met my husband, got married, had children, they got married and […]

Good difference or God Difference?

Good difference or God Difference?

God has a plan for our children’s lives.  Our children are divinely created by Almighty God to make a God Difference–more than a good difference–a GOD Difference in the world.  God has entrusted our children into our care, and it is an awesome responsibility.

Pray and Play

by Rhonda Barrett ~ May is always a month of reflection for me because of Mother’s Day.  It’s a SADSWEET time for me–SAD because my Mother is not here to celebrate and SWEET because one of my greatest joys is being a Mom (and, of course, a Grandma!). My Mom died at the age of […]
