Cancer.  The division of abnormal cells within the body.  Such a small word...just six letters.  Yet, this tiny little term has turned my family's world upside down. My grandmother was an amazing lady of faith and wisdom.  She always said, "At the end of each day, if it's been a good day, thank God for your blessings. [...]

Hi, friends!  It's almost that time of year where we see lots of Christmas cheer.  If you are anything like me, you love all that the Christmas season brings.  Trimming the tree, baking cookies, snuggled with my family on the couch by the fire--I love it all.  And Hallmark.  Especially Hallmark.  Oh, friends. It's simply [...]

Friends, it is so tough not to feel afraid as we watch the world's current events unfold before our eyes.  The headlines seem more alarming by the day.  I can hardly turn on the news, open a paper or peruse the disturbing headlines without seeing violence, hate and a skewed sense of morality.  Where is the [...]

Parents, the greatest battle we can wage for our children is on our knees.  Our mini me's need the shield of protection we provide them through prayer. Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17, "Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." With school schedules [...]

Ah, my sweet friends.  Does anyone else feel like they ended May with their hair on fire?  Whew!  I don't know about you, but my family and I are so thankful summer is here.

It's been almost three weeks since my friend, M, was called home.  The world continues to turn.  Life continues to move.  The sun rises.  The sun sets.  Days pass quickly - full of normal family activities and work.  Grief is an unpredictable emotion, friends.Because I didn't see M everyday, my normal routine has changed little.
