Strongholds: What Is Your Egypt

My metaphorical Egypt resembles the strongholds that hold me hostage. Dearest Reader, Earlier today, I came across a question, scratched in the margin of my Bible, “What is my Egypt?”  On my previous pass through Psalms, I had written this question and was prompted to do a heart check. What is my Egypt and where do I need deliverance? My metaphorical Egypt resembles the strongholds that hold me hostage. My metaphorical Egypt resembles the strongholds that hold me hostage.

Remembering Stones: Why We Need Them

Remembering stones remind me of God’s faithfulness when I cannot find Him Dearest Readers, The most precious part of being a Nanna is the priceless treasures handed me from chubby little hands. I have several tote boxes filled these treasures. A rock collection, stickers, handmade cards, pieces of string, and various other things.

Serving: A Burden or A Privilege

When serving becomes a burden, it is no longer ministry. It grows bitterness rather than the Kingdom.  Dearest Readers, Spring has arrived, and we learn she is a fickle girl, a season of temperament and unpredictability.  Many of us are experiencing bitter cold, snow, and howling winds. Wind screams across The Wilderness Place shaking windows and rearranging the furniture on our deck. My Sweet Man spotted wet snowflakes as big as his hand mingling with the rain.
