Just Love.

Sometimes showing love to someone right where they are is all they need. I think we get so caught up in the knee-jerk reaction to provide an answer. Or "preaching a sermon", if you will. Lord knows we have all had our share of those. It's OK to not have an answer. It's OK to …

Some of us need to give ourselves some credit this morning. Some grace. Some mercy. And some love. We may not be where we want to be, but we are no longer where we once were. God has given us victory after victory. Do not lose sight of that. Each day we still get up. …

Our Lifter In The Darkness

Good morning out there in Blog-land ~ I trust everyone is hanging in there today. If not barely. Some days are just that way. Yet we must continue to get up. Funny how life doesn't stop for us huh? That's where Grace kicks in - to help us do what we just don't want to …
