End of the Week Affirmation

At the end of a long, hard week, sometimes we just need to be reminded of who we are in Christ and where we stand with God.  The daily mess we walk through in this world can leave us feeling icky and looking stained in our own eyes, but we have to grab a hold […]

A New Path

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.  These are the things I will do.” -Isaiah 42:16 Okay, so I have another “walking the dogs revelation” to share with you.  I […]

My family and I live on a farm, and we have two adorable, sometimes obnoxious, pups, a chocolate lab named Yager and a golden retriever named Izzy. When we first got Yager, I would take him for a walk every day. Living on a farm I knew that eventually I would be able to walk […]

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Matthew 6:34 (NIV) “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.

Once and For All
