Our friendships are never coincidental. They are formed by God, through his love and his knowing exactly what we need, at just the right time. Every friendship is like a petal on a flower. It plays an important role in completing a beautiful picture. Friends are the "petals" that make our lives beautiful. They are the people who bring joy and color to our lives. Allow God to work in you and through you, knowing you are a special "petal" in someone's life.

Walk to the Well - a Lenten Devotional
It has been a tough winter, hasn't it? We are more than ready for a new season! For some of us, it might mean a change in a season in our lives, and that could look like many different things. Maybe it's simply a time to get back to the basics of understanding how deeply loved you are. To really allow yourself to rest in that and to fully invite God into your journey. Baby steps, my friend! This post include a devotional to help you take one baby step. You will enter the story of Jesus' interaction with the woman at the well, and will explore the kindness and grace of God. Be bless on your journey- Re

A few months
ago, I made a huge decision. I decided to retire.I use the word retired, loosely because I
truly feel I have more of me to give in life.The problem is, I just don’t know exactly what that is.In January, after undergoing shoulder
surgery, I was certain I’d be back to work and slide easily back into

wasn’t paying close attention), so I was propelled home after an unsuccessful
return to my job.I found the rest I

attempt to return to work. I was all
in.Sort of.Something in me was stirring and I wasn’t
sure what it was.I shared my thoughts I
had with my husband and he matter-of-factly said a few words that seemed to set
me free.“Stay home,” he said.I almost asked him to say it again, but I didn’t
chance it.Instead, I cried a stream of
tears.I wasn’t sure where my tears came
We're all searching.We may not realize it, but we are. We try to find that perfect thing that will make us feel loved, valued, and complete. And so, we search. We try to find it in our work, our kids, our causes, etc. The list is endless and it provides a temporary fix. We all belong to the same club. A club filled with broken people...in search of. But God sees us. He sees us running to whatever it is that catches our attention for the moment. He sees that we're tired and weary as we pursue what we are truly in search of.
And what is that? Love. A Love that can only be found in HIM. And so for me, I pray. I pray I can be aware when I am caught up in my "search". And instead of looking down, to the left or to the right, that I would lift my head and gaze into the eyes of Love. Into the promise of God who says... I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love! Jeremiah 31:3 The Message This Christmas, know this...You are loved. The Word beca…
