Waiting with Peaceful Expectation

I’m a picture person.  A visual learner. I understand things better if I can get a picture of it in my head. Today God gave me quite a profound picture. I was reading Matthew 4:18-22.  It’s the passage where Jesus invites Peter and Andrew to join Him.  The whole scene played out so vividly in… Continue reading Waiting with Peaceful Expectation

Are you ready to stop wrestling and start resting?

This was eye-opening for me. In the throes of a deep conversation with a dear friend, I was asked by him to stop and be thankful.  To spend the rest of the conversation thinking about things that we could be grateful for…instead of things that we struggle with… Can I tell you…it wasn’t easy.  … Continue reading Are you ready to stop wrestling and start resting?

In the Moment

It was one of those loooong work days. Ten and a half hours to be exact.  I was bone weary tired. So when my little ones were dropped off at my school, I decided it sounded like a Chick Fila kinda day. There was no argument from my littles.  It’s the favorite restaurant….they know us… Continue reading In the Moment

Why not talk to God?

I shared recently about the big decisions I need to make and how much I was struggling to make them. It has been a season of tremendous confusion for me…no easy answers, no straight, lighted path before me, nothing uncomplicated. I kept asking God to just make things clear to me.  I kept telling Him… Continue reading Why not talk to God?

Hermit\ adj., living in the desert. 1 a: one that retires from society and lives in solitude esp. for religious reasons: RECLUSE 2 : a spiced molasses cookie When I started this blog I was meaning more the recluse definition but I think I’m going to go with “a spiced molasses… Continue reading Me, The Hermit, and a Molasses Cookie

Do You Feel Loved?

Today I feel loved. Lately it’s been difficult to grasp that I’m lovable…that anyone could really and truly love me. And yes I know that God loves me…perfectly, relentlessly, beautifully, unconditionally, and passionately…all the ways I want to be loved. But I guess after my husband left, I’ve wanted someone to love me – to… Continue reading Do You Feel Loved?

Wading Into the Waves Holding My Savior’s Hand

Wading Into the Waves Holding My Savior’s Hand

Just saw that my newest blog is up at MomLifeToday.  I hope you enjoy it.

I’d also like to ask for prayer as I begin a new book proposal!  Working on Chapter 1…draft number 1,365,279…just kidding, it just feels that way! I’m so excited about the idea and I feel such a passion to share what God is showing me!  Can’t wait to see what God does with this!

Praying each of you has a wonderful, wonderful weekend filled with unexpected and beautiful blessings!

In His Care, Sue 

Prayer and My Best Friend

I’ve been wanting to write about prayer for several days now. Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer and I didn’t realize it until I checked Facebook. I love it when a plan comes together! Prayer. There is something about that word…it’s peaceful to me. It’s like a sigh. My prayers have been many things… Continue reading Prayer and My Best Friend

Not the List I Wanted to Make

I’ve been feeling all twisted up in knots.  If I could attach a video (which I probably can but honestly the thought of trying to figure out how and trying to look good enough in it kinda twists me up in more knots) you’d see me waving my hands all over the place to symbolize… Continue reading Not the List I Wanted to Make
