When God changes my plans

After a delightful few days in the sunshine with a dear college friend, I was ready to be home, see familiar sights and sleep in my own bed.  My friend dropped me off to the airport and headed to her home several hours away.  I walked into the airport ready for 2 easy, quick flights to home.  AND THEN my plans changed. My original flight was delayed, but there was still time to make my connection to Pittsburgh.  I sat…

A Rebecca Mail Give Away

Earlier this year, I was blessed to walk alongside Rebecca as she worked through a career change.  Together we looked at her personality gifts, core values and God’s calling on her life.  I asked her the big life coaching question, “If there were no obstacles in your life, what would you want your life to look like a year from now.” Rebecca didn’t hesitate to answer.  She responded immediately that she would love to have a subscription service where she…

When you don’t know what to do

There are times in our lives where we simply don’t know what to do.   We seek the answer by what we know to do – for me this means searching scripture, praying, asking others and trusting our “gut feeling” – and still have no clear direction of what to do.  It is a frustrating place to be and when you find yourself in this position, there are no clear answers. When I find myself in the place where I…

Joseph's success

Defining Success – Joseph’s story

We love successful people – we love their passion, their stories of how they never gave up and pushed through many obstacles to achieve their success.  Typically, when we see successful people it is when they have made it; they are wearing the medal or the crown or the title!  We wish that we were as successful as them. A devotion I did a few years back, has been swirling around in my mind again lately.  It is about Joseph,…

When you are afraid

A Sunday Thought: I love sharing God’s word and I was delighted to speak at a Mugs & Muffins Bible Study that is held at a local Pittsburgh Church during the summer.  My study was on fear and The Widow of Zarephath found in 1 King 17:7-16. One of the most common commands of the Bible is to not be afraid—over and over again, the Lord tells His people to not fear because He is with them. God does not want…

And so we wait

  The Saturday between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday is where I live most of my life — waiting. God truly deems waiting as valuable, or at least He must, because He has me (and most of us) in waiting modes most of our lives. The disciples waited in fear behind locked doors.  I have been there many times – waiting in fear. The disciples had to be bewildered as they waited.  It didn’t make sense, because just a week…

Your Husband – he is just a man

Yesterday at MOPS, I gave this devotion again.  I was asked to share this message again – a message that I know I need to remind myself often.  I promised the MOPS Moms that I would post it again on my blog and so here it is.  May it be a reminder to all of us, to let God be the one to turn to fulfill our needs, expectations and desires… Believe it or not, your husband is just a man…

God Uses all of our Pain

In the last little while – I have had the humbling opportunity to share many of my prior struggles, failures and pain with others who are going through similar experiences.  In almost every situation, I have shared that all my experiences are certainly not the way I thought my life story would go, but I am now certain that I have lived God’s exact plan for me. This morning God reminded me of this verse… “Praise be to the God and Father of our…

The solution for when my thoughts get the best of me…

Last week, I was chatting with a friend that I have not spoken to for a couple of months.  We had a good conversation catching up with each other’s lives, laughing and sharing easily. Yet, after we hung up, my mind started working overtime wondering if there was something wrong since it had been such a long time since we had communicated.  I let my mind wander about a couple of stray comments she made – and before I knew…

Do the Next Thing

Lately, my days have been so full – full of family, friends and Blessings – I’ve had little time to write on my blog.  In the past weeks I have cared for my grandson while my daughter  finished her Master’s degree ( may I say that a 13 month old little boy can be very, very busy).  We hosted a fun movie night in our back yard for our Sunday School class.  I  froze 30 pounds of fresh cherries (although…
