We Can Be Thankful For Our Trials

We Can Be Thankful For Our Trials

Well, we’ve come to the end of our Thanksgiving series on God and Our Trials.  Friend, I don’t know where you are in your life and what circumstances you find yourself in, but I hope you have found comfort in understanding the good that will come from the hard times of life and in knowing… Continue Reading

God’s Love and Our Trials

God’s Love and Our Trials

So far we have looked at God’s sovereignty and His providence.  His sovereignty means His complete control over everything that happens to us and how nothing surprises Him for He already knows the outcome.  That can and should bring us rest and increase our faith and trust in Him.  It’s His providence that brings us… Continue Reading

God’s Providence and Our Trials

God’s Providence and Our Trials

Last week we looked at God’s Sovereignty in relation to our trials.  We learned how we can trust Him to provide for us through those trials.  Both Matthew and Luke explained that He cares for us even more than the sparrows, lilies and grasses of the fields. Today I want to explore how the trials… Continue Reading

God’s Sovereignty and Our Trials

God’s sovereignty might just be my favorite attribute of Him and the one that has sustained me the most through the course of my life, especially the trials that came through being Big Bro’s mama.

Welcome, 2016!

Welcome, 2016!

Happy New Year! So how is 2016 treating you? My 2016 started out with adding a full nights sleep to my life. Our littlest guy reached 12 weeks and successfully sleep trained the night before our vacation ended. Hubby had a wonderful 3 weeks off at the end of December and we took those 3… Continue Reading

Oh, What A Year It Was!

Oh, What A Year It Was!

Well, have you survived the holidays so far?  I am thankful for the few day break from the festivities to catch me breath!  December held a crazy-making pace between the ceiling project and all the baking and cooking that needed to be done to maintain normalcy for Big Bro, not to mention the normal seasonal… Continue Reading
