Flowing From My Heart…

Gratitude comes in many forms. I am amazed at the infinite reminders that exist to prompt my heart to say 'thank you, Lord'.

Seriously?!

A reminder text alert woke me at the wee hours of the morning (11 AM). I jumped up, panicked. I hopped in the shower, quickly washed my hair, and hurriedly got dressed. My heart rate was elevated as I tried to figure out how I slept until 11 AM. How long would I have slept …

Uncommon Things, Hidden in Plain Sight.

Very few sermons stick with me for days after I've heard them, especially when I wasn't physically in the same space as the individual(s) presenting the message.

Close Call…We Could Have Lost It All

For This I Give You Praise!

For every mountain, you've brought me over. For every trial, you've seen me through. For every blessing, hallelujah. For this, I give You praise! For waking me up this morning, For starting me on my way, For letting me see the sunshine of a brand new day. A brand new mercy along with each new …
