walkin’ the walk: my grace is sufficient for you

If you’ve visited with me here before, you’ll know that I confess to needing a knock upside the head sometimes to get one concept or another to stick. (see here, here, and here.  I’m sure there are others, as I am a very slow learner!) Most recently, it’s been the truth illustrated in 2 Corinthians…… Continue reading walkin’ the walk: my grace is sufficient for you

deepest love

Easter weekend is fast approaching, and as we make plans for the weekend, I consider the events behind the holiday. For us it is not about bunnies and eggs and chocolate; albeit, I don’t mind indulging just a little.  It is about a love so amazing, so self-sacrificing, that its depths cannot be fully comprehended.  About a King…… Continue reading deepest love

faithful and full of faith

Home again, Home again, Jiggedy jig. When my Alberta girl was little she loved to read a book of rhymes at my mom’s home. She particularly liked “To Market, To Market” and would often happily repeat “homey, homey” (which was her version of the home again line) when we’d pull into our driveway after traveling. We…… Continue reading faithful and full of faith

the big but

But,  people. Not butt. Don’t you be thinking junk in the trunk. *insert finger wag* Seriously, though… I am so guilty of limiting God.  Underestimating His love, His care, His promises. I know He can…but…will He…? :: I know He promises that he will provide for my needs…but… Sometimes I get caught up in the here…… Continue reading the big but
