Is grace happening in you?
Is grace happening through you?

I’ve been stuck emotionally and spiritually more than I’d like to admit. Raise your hand if you can relate? Okay, we’re all “not alone.” But, let’s not stay stuck!

Looking to take a step forward in your life?

Want your actions to more closely match your intentions?

Me too!

What Does The Lord Your God Require Of You?

I’m thinking through what this means for me today, tomorrow, and my tomorrows.

What does the Lord your God require of you?
He requires only that you
fear the Lord your God,
and live in a way that pleases him,
and love him
and serve him with all your heart and soul.
- Deuteronomy 10:12, NLT

Counting My Blessings

Posted on Friday, January 13, 2012 in Emotional, Relational, Social, Values

It’s the 13th; the 13th of the month.

It’s FRIDAY the 13th. 

For some of you that conjures up images of Jason Voorhees, and others a superstitious fear of Friday the 13th. 

My Friday the 13ths are neither a horror story, nor unlucky.  Just the opposite! 

Amy & I started going out on Friday the 13th.   
We married on the 13th.
Amy’s birthday is on a 13th.

Today is the 313th 13th that Amy & I have been “going out.”

It’s been 1361 weeks.
It’s been 9527 days.
And, I’m still counting my blessings!

Everyone,  — even angry and crabby relatives — everyone is lovable, capable and worthwhile.

When talking to your “loved ones” this week, choose to use caring words.

Kind words heal and help;
cutting words wound and maim
. [Proverbs 15:4, MSG]

Caring words bring healing not hurt.

Talk the way you wish other people did.

Regardless what the other person chooses you can chose caring words.
