We Were Made for New

Posted by: | Comments (1)

imagesThe smell inside a new car

The dawn of a new day

A new house

A new baby

The adventure of traveling down a road you’ve never been on before

A gift to be opened

A new recipe

What is it about new things that we love? By the way, I love my new website!

Is it always wrong to long for something new or is there something within us made for newness?

I remember when I got a new van several years ago. I loved it! I was so excited about how nice it was and all the bells and whistles it had and just the fact that it was clean and new. Even though I loved it when it was new, I was so glad to see it go a couple of months ago when I got a new car. My soccer mom days were officially over. It was the beginning of a new era!

A Picture of My Heart

Posted by: | Comments (1)

images (1)Did you ever draw a picture of your heart when you were younger – perhaps on a piece of paper designed to give to your sweetheart? Did you draw it big and red? Maybe with Cupid’s arrow through it? Or maybe you drew it broken or bleeding?

What would it look like today if you drew a picture of your heart?

God has so much to say about our hearts. Many times God’s Word talks about “hard hearts”.

Last night I was thinking about what it means to have a hard heart. I guess I’ve always had an idea in my mind of what this might mean, but at this moment I see something new. Instead of a mental picture of someone whose face is hardened, who is cursing and openly rejecting God, I see a picture of me.

For the Love of a Dog

Posted by: | Comments (2)

My family and I have this mutt dog named Charlie. Charlie is a wonderful dog, however sometimes his behavior is less than stellar. But yet I find that I really love this dog! He is so expressive. He has these beautiful eyes which never fail to show me that he thinks I am wonderful. He will sit at my command although he groans as he tries to contain his boundless energy that really makes him want to jump up on me. His mother dropped him off on our back door step about 3 years ago. He was just a tiny ball of black fur. He just looked through our back door and cried as if to say, “Hold me. I’m scared. Don’t leave me. Where’s my mama?” Now he is this big, big dog with a humungous tail that swings back and forth offering a large thump to whatever it touches. Someone once told me that he looks like the dog from Dr. Seuss’ Whoville. Let’s just say he has many family lines.
