Wondering when I have trials … Read More Consider The Temporary and the Eternal
The Lights One thing I love during the fall and winter is seeing lights. Some are very bright and some are rather dim, low lights and some are candles. Either way, they are beautiful! I’ve been thinking of this as it pertains to our life, especially during the holidays. Some years have been bright and cheerful. Some years have been darker, harder to see … Read More In Bright or Dim Lights – Let’s See Him!

God is so faithful isn’t He? I’ve been struggling so much lately with acceptance and condemnation. And yet, God has shown Himself so faithful. While I’ve been in tears, he’s been right there next to me. Even when I don’t see Him. And when I finally look up from my struggles, there He is faithful and true, wrapping His arms around me to let … Read More Turning Toward Home
A Tragic Loss Over the weekend, many news channels, posts and articles were written, telling us of Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce’s death from a seizure at age 20! Twenty years old is such a young age to die, and it seems strange I’m sure to many who are unaware of seizures and Epilepsy, that someone can die from having a seizure. Unfortunately, many … Read More Love and Learn
One by one, states are standing up for life. Take for instance, this week in Alabama, their governor passed a very strict law with no exceptions even with instances of rape and incest.

Last week, a young successful author passed away. She left a husband , very young children and a kind, godly family. She has been the subject of many posts lately.

I think of three words to describe living with epilepsy. These three words are: Loneliness, Hurt and Fear. Mostly epilepsy is known as having a seizure disorder. This is true, but epilepsy has many other symptoms and side effects; and even the medicines can have serious side effects. Even when we go through a period of being ” seizure free”, we still have daily … Read More Describing Life With Epilepsy

Today is known as Good Friday. I see it as Good in the fact that Jesus went to the cross to cover my sin and the sin of the whole world and we can have salvation when we believe. Very difficult circumstances happened that day for Jesus, though. Pilate didn’t see any reason for Him to be crucified but the Jews started yelling and … Read More How Is Your Faith?
They seized Him, led Him away, and brought Him into the high priest’s house. Meanwhile Peter was following at a distance. They lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, and Peter sat among them.
