“Forgiveness means to give up our resentment for the omission or commission of something that hurts us. Forgiveness grants relief to the person who “owes” us for what they have done to us or allowed to happen to us. In its most complete form, true forgiveness means we cease to feel resentment against the person who inflected the pain.”– Carol Kent, A New Kind Od Normal (2007)

God’s Grace Is Not Earned
“God’s grace does not come to people who morally outperform others, but to those who admit their failure to preform and who acknowledge their need for a Savior.”– Timothy Keller, The Reason For God (2008)
Did You Lie Today?
The society we live in sets us up to excuse white lies. All you have to do is read the billboards on the highway and watch the commercials on the television; easily half of them include white lies. Sure, there is probably a grain of truth in them, but sometimes it’s a pretty small grain!”– Dan Seaborn, 26 Words That Will Improve The Way You Do Family, (2002)
All In God’s Timing
“The best thing you and I can do is to stop looking at our watches and calendars and simply look by faith into the face of God and let Him have His way–in His time.”– Warren Wiersbe, God Isn’t In A Hurry (1994)

Our Gift From God – Jesus
Through the years, it’s sad to say, my Christmas celebratory group has grown smaller. However, my expansion of understanding the true meaning of Christmas has been a blessing. Don’t get me wrong, all the partying and gifts are a welcome part of this year’s celebration. It’s more that over the years I’ve grown in Christ, studying and believing more of what Jesus, our Gift from God, means to me.
What a blessing to spend this holiday with those I love…my husband, pregnant daughter, son-in-law, their 8 month old daughter, and family in-laws. As much as I’d like, it doesn’t always happen this way.Continue reading
In all seasons, both prosperous times and times of struggle, we are to give thanks to our LORD.
Overflowing With Thankfulness
The more we live in thankfulness to God for all things, under all circumstances and in all situations, the more we are able to see His works.
Thanking shows we trust His judgment even though the situation is stressful. Thanking shows willingness to grow through undesirable situations.
Thankfulness opens eyes to what God is teaching allowing us to be grounded in Him. Grounding brings about faith so that any doubt of His promises will be removed.
In this season of Thanksgiving may we be truly thankful.Continue reading
