Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it. LUKE 18:17 ESV
This week is Spring break for my children. They are so carefree as they rest from their work. This morning they made me breakfast and then flew outside so ready to celebrate the day. Singing, “It’s time to get up in the morning. “
“May we all have faith as these little ones,” said Jesus. Best seen resting in the arms of what Christ has said is finished.
It is easy to rest when the light shines around you and all is blooming new life. Dancing out into the sunshine and delighting in the breeze. Soaking up every ounce of sunlight until darkness settles in.
Yet in the dark where we cannot see we can become just as scared as little children. Running and jumping into our beds of faith while praying the monster under the bed never penetrates the covers. Staring at our nightlight until sleep comes. Hoping for day.
This week no matter what darkness may surround us let’s take a mental Spring break. Singing of the joy that comes in the morning just like my children. Resting in Jesus and singing all the way. Having assurance that there comes a day.

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,

I’m not a hymn person in general, but Amazing Grace does it every time. All verses all the way until all that is left is Praise God over and over and over. Stopped by from Coffee for the Heart!
