looking for the truth?

4 Show me the right path, O Lord;    point out the road for me to follow.5 Lead me by your truth and teach me,    for you are the God who saves me.    All day long I put my hope in you Psalm 25:4-5 New Living Translation (NLT) In our quiet time today, Mr. L read a devotional piece written by one of…

anger is an acid

Mark Twain once said, “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” Back in April I painted a page in my studio diary to remind me of this. A lesson best learned early and held tightly throughout life.…

best ever burgers

First I want to say, “I’ve been a really good girl for the past 90 days!” I’ve been eating fresh fruits, fresh veggies and proteins. No carbs to speak of, almost no fat [mayo, butter and the like] and very little sugar. It’s paid off. Big time!  My jeans bag along behind me like they belong to someone…

baby back ribs

Bar-B-Q Ribs and Corn on the Cob. Does that epitomize summer or what? Well…that’s supper tonight and just because it’s so.o.o delish, I’m gonna share the way we fix ’em with you. Our method has been perfected over a few decades, and even though it may sound a bit braggadocios, I gotta tell you, I’ve never…

happy now?

Today there was an opportunity to have a miserable day. Ever have one of those? We all have moments of anxiety, depression or fear. Each is a form of unnecessary suffering. Instead of sinking into the depths, I am determined to learn to be happy NOW! Not someday when everything appears to be perfect—but right NOW.…

living outside of time

This is a lesson I learned late in life—a difficult lesson—not soon to be forgotten. If you are a child of The King…time has no meaning Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape you, beloved, that with The Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as one day.…

bookmarks

This has been an Art day here… been making bookmarks.  I know, I know—iPhone and iPad not books. Books are [ugh] old fashioned. Never mind…I’ll share my project with you anyway. First print out the five scans of my original watercolor paintings. Next, choose five beautiful craft papers to stiffen them. Carefully cut out the…

unworthily

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35 Celebrating Holy Communion is a vital part of every true believer’s life, because of the depth of meaning hidden in the elements of the Communion. During the age-old Hebrew celebration…

healing power

Once again God has directed my attention to the subject of divine healing. Any time the subject comes up, questions fly thick and fast. “Do you believe in healing?” Yes! I have experienced God’s healing power in my own life and seen it in the lives of numerous others. “Do you believe God still heals…
