“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10 I once heard this verse referred to as architectural. Strong beams, placed to support the structure. (Just a quick […]


“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 I have always loved this verse. And it remained on a sticky note on my desk for a few years. Probably only due […]

Prayer, My Headline News

“The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18 I learned awhile back that Psalm 145 would have been said daily as a “Praise” blessing. Prayer is so powerful. It does not matter if you say a lengthy formal prayer or call out asking […]

“I am cheering you on,” he said.

“A friend loves at all times but a brother is born of adversity.” Proverbs 17:17 Early February my husband and I were headed back to NJ for our best man’s 50th birthday party. I was excited to be reunited with old friends. Some of whom we had not seen in 20 years! I am sure […]

We were made to be Courageous!

Look at this beautiful dog, please no petting working dog his harness said. I was traveling back from Texas earlier in the month when this little fella’s obedience and alert watch in service for his owner moved me to capture a photo as I waited in the airport. There was a hustle and bustle surrounding […]

Pause to Praise

If you read my testimony on our website at Heart Uplifted, you would find I personally have had to “pause” repeatedly over the course of too many years recently. My citation there is from the book of Matthew, Chapter 26. “Watch and pray” Jesus asked his disciples.  A consideration this morning, insight into watch.  It comes […]


The beauty and majesty of our world is astounding. We are extremely blessed to live in the Adirondacks located in upstate New York.  If you have not come to explore this region of the country, do come visit. You will not be disappointed. Mountain views, pristine lakes, forest wild, call of the loons, the balsam […]

Treasure in the Ordinary

“Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden] which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.” Jeremiah 33:3 Transformation. Why are we always looking for the dramatic? It is rebuilding, reconstruction, remolding, redoing and reworking. […]

You Matter

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the waste land.” Isaiah 43:18-19 I am not certain when or if it has always been this feeling of […]

Bring on the mud!

“But those who wait for the LORD [who expect, look for and hope for Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; they will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.”  Isaiah […]


“walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,”  Ephesians 4:1 There are so many times the Lord confirms His presence and let’s you know He hears you.  There are times I talk as a child for sure.  The domino pictured here represents just such a time.  They were given […]

Let Him In

“for with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37 Can you rest in that message from the scripture above? No fear, no worry, no pain.  And a big one no doubt. When we each can “Let HIM in” how much we gain. Our focus is removed from ourselves and on to the importance of what […]
