I have been waiting for Resurrection Sunday for the longest time now. It has always been one of my favorite days. Recently I was contemplating the account from the morning of the Resurrection and Mary's loyalty to her Savior. I was struck with her devotion to Christ. Something to remember is that Jesus had delivered … Continue reading Serving Our Risen Lord
Finding Grace In Life’s Trails
Last fall I wrote a post that was centered around the beauty of change. I shared pictures that showed ways God had been teaching me to see the beauty in the harshness of change. This new year has brought so many changes to my life that I can't even begin to describe. Changes that are … Continue reading Finding Grace In Life’s Trails
An Old Fashioned Christmas
Welcome to post three in my series of Old Fashioned living. If you missed the first two, you can check them out here and here. Christmas offers so many opportunities for Old Fashioned things.

What was the significance of the swaddling clothes?
We know that Christ was not born on December 25th. It didn't happen. For many though, that is the day His birth is commemorated. Regardless of views on the holiday that has been labeled "Christmas", the birth of Jesus Christ is something that should be remembered and celebrated all throughout the year. He was born … Continue reading What was the significance of the swaddling clothes?
An Old Fashioned Fall
Autumn has come and gone, and I'm still trying to figure out where on earth it went. The last lingering beauties of fall are quickly and gracefully being replaced by the frosty beauty of winter.

From the time that I was a child, I knew that America would always have a special place in my heart. Those who know … Continue reading Plead For Mercy

It sets my mind spinning when I ponder the incredible love with which God loves us, that He knew … Continue reading Written In The Stars
Is Jesus Enough?
Humans are social creatures. Yes, even those who would claim to be introverts. We long for the ability to have someone who understands us, who spends time with us, and has a connection to us. It's easy for us to start to feel sorry for ourselves. Life is a lonely journey sometimes. Seasons of life … Continue reading Is Jesus Enough?
Feminism vs Biblical Femininity
This seems to be a hot topic currently, with the overturning of Roe vs Wade only a short while ago. While I typically stick to History posts, today I decided to share something that has been on my heart. It has been a time of great rejoicing for me as we have been witness to … Continue reading Feminism vs Biblical Femininity
Giving God Our Best
I wonder how many of us can say that we give God our best 100% of the time? The answer of course is none of us! There has never been and never will be a human who has given their best to the Lord 100% of the time. We are human and we fail—often miserably. … Continue reading Giving God Our Best
