The Real Story

As I prepare for Christmas, one thing that I love doing is going back to Sara’s blog and remember what she wrote…remember her perspective. God’s perspective. I do believe that Sara opened her mind and heart to God so He could teach us through her. I love this post, Sara wrote on “The Real Story.”…

Choose Gratitude…It’s good for your health!

Why is expressing gratitude so hard? Gratitude is a funny thing because many of us know we should express gratitude, but our impulses tend to be what takes over. Impulses like frustration, irritation, impatience, etc. The annoyances that happen in everyday life easily take over our intent to count our blessings. Therefore, we need to…

Choose Thankful — Gratitude Journal

As we all head into our Thanksgiving holidays. Whether we are with family and friends or celebrating by ourselves, whether we live and die by tradition or love to mix it up in our holiday, the central theme is the same – that in more ways than we can count, we are blessed. I’m thankful…

Choose Faith

Hebrews 11:1, 6 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” They say that faith is believing without seeing.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Heavenly birthday to my sweet sister Sara! Seven years ago today, Sara made her journey to her heavenly home. When Sara began this journey, her first words to me were “Isn’t this exciting!” How many of us would have these be our first words when we hear the news that our body has begun…
