I love flowers. The colors. The shapes. The extravagant beauty. There is something about blooming flowers that puts me in a good mood.

Power to Accomplish

I’m an idea girl. I get these ideas in my head – some small and easy to accomplish, and some very grandiose and complex. Some of these ideas are self-generated and some are, I believe, prompted by God and my faith. The ones I think up on my own usually have to do with renovating the house, or a new diet or exercise regimen. I make a plan and then

He can do the impossible.

Straight Talk

“Seriously, God? You want me to post about this? But don’t you know this issue is such a struggle for me and I don’t feel like I have a handle on it…” I’ve always been a talker. I have felt compelled to let others know what I think. Sometimes I have said something and one of my kids would say “you just made that up, didn’t you mom?” and I
