Finding Joy in Who I Am

When I am in prayer and reflecting on something, I seek Him first and through seeking Him, I also find myself going back to the wisdom He taught through Sara. Sara was my little sister, but she was also my greatest coach and wisdom leader. In my prayer this morning, I found myself reflecting on the…

Choose Growth

In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who…

Day 6 Be Intentional — Savor Moments

I love the following quote from Sara… “I’ve learned to appreciate the simplicity in my moments. I’ve learned that being thankful in everything is more important than being thankful for something. I want to be grateful for everything in my life, not just the special moments.”         ~Sara ‘Gitz” Frankl Being thankful for everything in…

Day 5 Be Intentional — Pray

As a Christian, I think one of the most important things we can do is to be intentional in prayer. Nehemiah is a great example of prayer. When Nehemiah prayed, he changed the world. When He prayed, he did not pray as a victim of circumstance, but rather as a call to action. His prayer…

Day 4 Be Intentional – Love others

John 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” Living a Christian life means that we must be intentional in how we live. We must live in such a way that those who don’t know God will come to know Him because they know you. We are called…

A Big Announcement!

“Never put a period where God has put a comma. God is Still Speaking.” ~Gracie Allen Before Sara passed away on Sept. 24 2011, one of the last things she said was, “I want people to continue learning, believing and trusting in God, as I have tried to be His disciple, BUT she said, it’s…

God’s Call and His Gifts

Romans 11:29 “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable.” As I walk this cancer journey and all the bumps in the road along the way, I have been thinking about what God’s call is for me… In 2011 when Sara passed away, I said yes to both her and God to continue this choose…

Peace with the Unknown

  “I didn’t realize until tonight that peace doesn’t come from putting my life in God’s hands, it comes from the knowledge that it’s not mine to begin with. It has been His from the beginning. I in my humanness must step aside and let Him do His work through me, because I am His.”…

Be Intentional

As I sit here in silence with my own thoughts, feeling tired and with little energy, I am also feeling grateful.  Although this cancer journey has been hard, I am grateful for the times I can leave the busyness of life behind. It has provided me extra opportunities to pray for those I love. It…

Counting my blessings.

The 4th of July, is a time for us to count our blessings, celebrate our independence and thank all those who fought for our independence. I was thinking this weekend about something Sara wrote about the American Dream…”When we think of the American Dream we typically think about how we can better our circumstances. Our…
