Love is in the Air

What does LOVE look like in your home?

What does love look like in my home? 

Wow; what a question to ask but ask she did. 

Joanne of One So Blessed created a new meme with an opportunity for us to link up.  And what better message to share than ...LOVE!

So, back to the question ...

Love in my home is when my husband Greg really listens to me.  You know we women tend to use many more words than men.  I like to give details and Greg likes to get down to the bottom line. 

But there are times when he sees me so excited about something.  Or the time I came home after a get together with my blogging friend Kathleen of Sassy Granny (and yes I'll be seeing her on Friday to say goodbye as she moves to the Seattle area). 

Greg will tell me to sit down and to give him all of the details.  He smiles and has me sit really close to him.  I have to say those are some of the times when I feel so loved by him.

Is love in the air at your home? 

Blessings and love,


Running the Race

Laced With Grace
Our faith walk can be compared to running a long distance race.  We need endurance to continue to the end.

God often chooses to use the weak, the not so smart, the unknown to do His best Kingdom work in this world.  It's the willing and obedient heart that He's seeking.

Faithful Bloggers ~ Psalm 23

I'm participating in a Christian Group Writers Project on Faithful Bloggers.  It is based on the 23rd Psalm.  We were given the opportunity to chose one of the six verses from this Psalm.  I chose to write on verse 5.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies,
You aniont my  head with oil; my cup overflows.
Psalm 23:5

Hmm ...preparing a table in front of my enemies.  Do I really have enemies?  

Well, if Jesus is the Lord of my life ...I will have enemies.

You see, as I submit to His leading He transforms me from the inside out.  That means change.  And frankly, not everyone is happy with change.  Inevitably, there will be conflict. 

I may not have people fighting against me with physical weapons but ...words can be hurtful.

It's so important for me to spend time alone with the Lord daily as I feast at His table of love. 

Table preparation takes time and can't be rushed.

In my imagination I'm seated at a lovely table setting like this one with the sound of the waves and the smell of salt air. 

But it's His Word that I feast on daily.  Reading, speaking and praying His Word. 

As I come before the Lord each morning, I receive His fresh anointing for that day.  I remember who I belong to and that He is the Good Shepherd who cares for me.  His Holy Spirit is overflowing as I allow  Him to work in me and through me.  I become saturated in His love and that love ...overflows to others.

My salvation cannot be taken away.  I belong to Him forever.

Thank you Jesus!
