Safe 🌷

I lift up my eyes to you, to you who sit enthroned in heaven. As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he shows us his mercy.Continue reading “Safe 🌷”

Flip flop 🌷

All this energy issues from Christ: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever . He is in charge ofContinue reading “Flip flop 🌷”

Plan for weakness 💐

Forgiving myself 🌻

“Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive,” C.S. Lewis wrote. ” I think Peter would have agreed.

Stick it my pipe and 🚬 it

The thing about churches is they are full of broken people.( Like me.)Who else knows that they need Jesus better? Jesus was always catching flaque for hanging out with sinners. Right? But hurt people hurt people. That’s a thing. So I guard my heart at church. I give out information strategically. Assume that I amContinue reading “Stick it my pipe and 🚬 it”

It had to happen

Inevitable. Hubby and I were on a date, and there she was ~ our son`s new mom. 💔 Our son might have been there too; we don’t know. He’s in college somewhere, I think. Maybe he went back to the car when he saw us; maybe we could have seen him. We just don’t know.Continue reading “It had to happen”

Comfort-er 💐

INTIMACY – Jesus’ disciples had a very intimate relationship with Him which is why it would have been so hard to think of Him leaving. Jesus knew this, but He also knew that the same level of intimacy would be available through the Helper who was coming. The Holy Spirit is now, God with us. LiterallyContinue reading “Comfort-er 💐”
