This blog site is not your normal Christian blog.

I’m going to write about things we never talk about in our Sunday school classes or women’s Bible study groups. I will discuss your “little secrets,” imperfections, scars and pain. The things you may be ashamed for anyone to know about. Things you weren’t the only one to endure.

I pray you will be encouraged by reading my blog and hope you will visit often.

Life Decisions

When I was twenty one years old I was facing the most difficult decision I personally had ever made. While discussing it with someone older and wiser than me and I remember them telling me “One day you will look back and realize this will not be the biggest decision of your life.” They were…

Faithful and True

Tonight I am thankful that the God I serve does not stop loving you because you become old. He does not stop caring about you because of the size of your bank account. He does not stop withholding his love because of the color of your skin or your educational background. My God doesn’t care…

Sowing & Reaping

I planted these Zinnias from seed early June. I am finally seeing my first bloom. I also planted some daisies, but have yet to see any possibility of buds. I will, like my Heavenly Father, keep watching and doing everything I can to encourage production. Sowing and reaping still amazes me! I am thankful I…

God Crazy

I am not crazy like the world considers or defines crazy, but I am conflicted and fighting a truly real spiritual warfare battle. It rages wildly and strongly.  The desire of the enemy is to destroy me and you. He desires to kill our spirit, to keep us from praying. He desires to discourage us…

Without Him

I have failed God more times than I can count, but HE has never failed me. I have wallowed in self pity and doubt. I have been disobedient and willful. Demanded my own way. Selfish and ungrateful.  Downright foolish and arrogant many times. Knowing I was wrong, knowing I needed help, but refusing to change.…

Grandmother

I’m not the momma anymore, I’m the grandmother, aka “Nannie or Ninnie.” It is amazing how quickly life roles reverse. One day you’re the child, then you’re the mom, and before you can even scratch your watch or wind your head band you are the grandma!!! I kid you not! It happens almost overnight! Just…

Precious Memory

My brother DeWayne and I often spent the night with my Nannie Jackson in her home at Route 1 Jefferson. The bedtime ritual was we all three climbed into her double bed. We each prayed silently. When we had finished our prayers each one of us would individual say out loud “Amen” when we were…

Little is Much

If you have any age on you at all, you know who Bill Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band are. If you attended church anytime between 1930 and 1970 you will know and recognize the lyrics of this song. We sang it often, back before praise and worship music became the thing. In the harvest…
