Tethered

Day 130. Focus – Jesus. Eyes on Him.  How else can I live in peace? Unless my heart be tethered to my Lord, I will lose heart. Unless my feet remain within my Good Shepherd’s pasture, I will lose my way. Unless my eyes remain trained on His eyes of love, I will stray for … More Tethered

Pondering {pay attention}

This season of {pay attention} has increasingly reminded me of my excitement as an engaged bride counting down the days eagerly anticipating the arrival of my groom just days before our wedding.

Saturday Share with Me: Life and Truth With Motherly Love

Truth.  Outside of my immediate family, I’ve never been so challenged to speak the truth in love, keep short accounts, and forgive with extravagance.  Leading multi-faceted people in one unified direction is not for the faint of heart.  Honestly, I was humbled by my consistent need to ask forgiveness for myself.  My knees and my heart were raw in a good tenderized kind of way by the end of my term. … More Saturday Share with Me: Life and Truth With Motherly Love
