Speaking your truth

In my research into hypothyroidism, I came across the Hindu teachings about chakras. To be clear, I don't ascribe to Hinduism but my interest was piqued by their belief that thryoid issues were due in part to not using your voice. Acquiescing to others when you know you shouldn't; staying silent instead of speaking up;... Continue Reading →

Healing: Faith meets the Faithful One

Reaching out through the dusty feet of a crowd, she grasps his hem, and hopes for healing.  Faith meets the Faithful One.  A current of power passes through her grasping, hoping hands into her bleeding depths. ... It wasn't about the outer garment. Gifts are rarely accurately reflected by their packaging. It was all about... Continue Reading →

Quagmire

I was going to say, "swamped" but 'quagmire' just sounds more poetic. Either way, I am caught up in circumstances that are difficult to maneuver and somewhat overwhelming.

Isaiah 43:2,3 God often speaks to me through pictures when I pray. At last night's prayer... Continue Reading →

Mid-January Catch-Up Part 2

I've been meaning to get here for days... It feels good to finally settle down for a few minutes. I've been busy working on a Bible study that I'd like to start teaching in March or early April. I am putting together my little 'guinea-pig group' and hoping to get things more refined as we... Continue Reading →

Our Lives are Precious

I just don't want to keep on the way things have been. I... Continue Reading →
