Our Journey With The Father

Sun, sand, a view, and a day off together! What more could I ask? Last Friday my husband and I walked over the northern headland from Newport to Bilgola Beach. We took our suddenly-adventurous son, who turned three the same week. The walk was significant, our first, almost-date in the day time (we only took one…

F-Words.

Fear is a four letter F-word. Even worse than the other one. Although, fear is similar to the other f-word because it too can create babies, baby F-words.  F-word offspring that can then grow into Big Daddy or Big Mama F-words in our lives. Here is Fear’s Family Tree. Fear marries Foreboding; Together they bring forth…

Drink Living Water

Job 20:20

I saw this verse this week as I was seeking quiet and stillness, the word “contentment” came to mind. We need to be still with God, to be calm. We need to remove the chaos, the hectic and the busy if we are to retain anything we truly desire. I encourage you to be still…

When God Says, “No.” (Part 2)

Yesterday I began this post with Part 1, you can read it here. I explained the story behind today’s post. Today I am posting the first song that I wrote in a series of songs. It was a very difficult song to write. It came out of sadness and regret after God had said, “No,…
