10/10/ – 10/11/20: Happy Weekend

10/10 – 10/11/20: Happy Weekend “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].” 2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC This is my prayer for us …

10/09/20: What Grace Do You See?

10/09/20: What Grace Do You See? Butterflies remind me of Grace. When I see one, I think about their wings and how they flutter here and there, from flower to flower; like Grace upon Grace. What things remind you of Grace? What things remind you of His Mercy? His Love? His Peace? “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and …

10/08/20: Grace for You

10/08/20: Grace For You I think sometimes the hardest thing to do is forgive ourselves. I know we touched on it a little bit yesterday, but because this is so difficult sometimes, it should probably be addressed again. There are times in our lives wherein we know we’ve screwed up, big time. How do we release those mistakes? The guilt, the consequences? How do we let go …

10/06/20: An Extension of Grace

10/06/20: An Extension of Grace What does Grace look like to you? I think GRACE sometimes looks like Love. We are able to Love Him because He first Loved us (1 John 4:19). That’s an extension of Grace, right?  After all, because He Loved us first, we, therefore, know He loves us and we love Him in return. Seems like He came up with the short end of …

10/05/20: The Power of Grace

10/05/20: The Power of Grace I think Grace is underrated and underestimated. After all, who really wants to live under a state of grace? Maybe “under” isn’t the right wording though. Maybe, it should be “in”, instead. We should live “in” a state of Grace. However, even Paul didn’t want to do so. In fact, there is a time in his life when he asked God, three …

10/02/20: Even a Little Progress Matters

10/02/20: Even a Little Progress Matters! When my daughters were little, I would walk them to school. If it had rained, they would pay special attention to all the snails along the walkway crossing to get to the other side. All of them (smile). On my way back, I’d see countless snails that had made it across. A snail’s pace seems ridiculously slow, unbearable, and frustrating when …

10/01/20: Hello October

10/01/20: Hello October! Hello October! Hello Autumn! Hello November! Hello Thanksgiving! Hello December! Hello Christmas! Hello Happy New Year! Hello 2021! Goodbye 2020! That’s pretty much how quickly it goes right? It seems as soon as Autumn hits, the rest of the year flies by! What do you want to accomplish by the end of the year? 3 months. That’s what left in 2020. In 3 months, …

09/30/20: Getting Started

09/30/20: Getting Started (or Finishing Strong) When 2020 began, no one could have guessed the turmoil, the hurt, the confusion, or the angst that was on the horizon. Yet, as the year begins to draws to a close, in retrospect, none of that really matters. That may sound harsh but think about it. There’s a lot we can learn from these past months of quarantine, all the …
