   Ever nurse a dream, a promise, or a relationship for many years, praying for fruitfulness, only to face barrenness instead? God used a Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree to teach me a powerful lesson; true Fruitfulness is not born from nature, nor nurture, but from Intimacy with God.

My Mom has been my spiritual hero of faith and watching her triumph through countless hardships and difficulties raising 9 children and staying true to her marriage vows despite harsh circumstances...

   Basking in my most recent mother-flop, I confess at this precise moment, L is for “Loser.” Gone are all the triumphant memories of Birthday Parties and special mother-daughter play dates; playing dress-up, Barbie’s, reading stories or doing an art project together. All is lost in the current sea of failure. I blew it. And no matter how much I want to retrieve the moment, it’s gone forever.

You need to understand my frustration and borderline despair over my keen ina...

Table for Two

you think if you walk away
I'll walk away from you
but not as the world gives love
do I give unto you

you think if you cross the line
I'll turn my back on you
but My love remains always the same
no matter what you do

you think if you break My laws
I'll tell you "shame on you!"
but truth be told, I ache to hold
those running from My truth

you think if you do good
and occupy a pew
I'll adore and love you more
just because you do

you think these things in err...

                                                              God never ceases to amaze me!

Since the first of 2012 while desperately seeking God's face, after a 40 day fast... I have entered into the "sweetest spot" of my 22 year love affair with the Jesus. Mind you, the prior 20 years I had been a quote un quote "Christian."...

“ Let us boldly draw near to God’s throne of Grace to find mercy for our failures and grace in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

There is a precious place of mercy awaiting you, even when, (especially when) you feel the least deserving. In this “secret place” of your heart you have opportunity to share intimately with The Living God. It is here you approach His throne of Grace. Yet often when we need Him most, we disqualify ourselves from entering in because of our failures a...

"And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD....

The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace....lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea."

Ex. 14:13-16

A warm fire is blazing, smells of turkey and pumpkin pie filter through each room, while sounds of laughter rise above the football game. I smile contentedly.
Yes, I'm thankful for all my many blessings... too many to count, but the secret to contentment is not found in blessings.

"How grateful I am... I have learned how to get along happily whether I have much or little. I know to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret to living in every sit...
