Time For Spring Again!

Ah it's Spring time again. Trees bursting with new leaves and filling the space that once lay barren with an expanse of greenery that will shade us during those long, hot days of summer to come. The flower beds that lay dormant, now are filled with new colors that seems more intense than it did last year coupled with fragrance that fills your senses with such joy, such color, such promise.

Sometimes our lives can feel at times like Spring, bursting with uncontainable joy, laughter and love. Other times it can feel like the long, never-ending days of a hot, unbearable summer, sweating out problem after problem. Then again, some of us feel like the fall has come to our lives, things we no longer need in our life, simply fall away , to be blown away by the unseen wind to another place. Still others of us feel completely dead inside like the winter. Cold, empty, and no sign of life. Lacking in hope and faith, our belief in something better is dried up and gone, brittle and broken.

My dearest friends, God can take us at any season in our lives and completely restore us to Spring. Whatever situation you find yourself in, it's literally not the end of the world all though it can certainly feel that way. Whether you find yourself at a crossroads in your life when it comes to your job, your marriage, a difficult relationship, or loss of direction, God can be your compass and roadmap to a new and better life.

Sometimes we look at our lives and wonder, how did I get here? Wasn't everything going along just fine? Why me? God would ask the question, what not you?

We need to remember we live in a world full of sin. Nothing can change that until the world as we know it is destroyed. It is the punishment man will pay for but God can restore, and He will. Yet from time to time, we will have struggles. We will have pain. We will have loss so great we think it's more than we can bear. But if we have God in our lives, we can weather anything because we are not alone. He is with us. He will never, ever leave us, once we invite Him into our lives.

Sure it can seem like God is quiet, like He has left us to attend some bigger crisis somewhere but He doesn't. That's our own worst enemy talking to us. No matter what you are going through right now, give it to God. Stop what you are doing right now and let Him take your burden from you. No matter what it is, God doesn't want to you carry it. He wants you to hand it over and never look at it again. It is a trial by fire if you will. Will you turn it completely over to Him and let Him handle it, no matter how He decides it should be? Are you willing to let Him despite the outcome?

Go to Him in a short prayer. Just tell Him what you need. Tell Him what's on your heart, the good, the bad and the ugly. He can take it all. Ask Him to restore peace to your heart, comfort your emotional needs, and restore your joy. Then most of all, believe it with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul. God wants to help you and the more times we remember to do this, the shorter our storms will be.

Oh and while your waiting, Rejoice! Smile! Be happy! Find the good in something today! It's always present, we simply need to open our eyes and see it. Ask God to show you and be prepared to be amazed at what He can do.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Sometimes I know the cares and worries of this world can wear me down like the sands of time, yet I know that you are greater than anything I find myself going through. Though I find myself lacking your joy today, I lift up my arms and cry out to you, Lord Jesus, restore your joy unto my heart and soul. I ask that you remove any burdens I haven't placed at your feet today. I trust you completely to work in my life and ask that you guide my feet in the steps you need me to take today. Lord, open my eyes to your wonders and help me to see the beauty you have laid out all around my life. Live in me today, Lord Jesus, and restore my heart, my soul, my mind and my strength.

In Jesus Mighty Name, I pray ~ AMEN

"So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!"

Psalm 31:24 (NLT)

A New Version of Nursery Rhymes

Check out this amazing video. It's worth watching all the way to the very end. Here's hoping your day is filled with unexpected surprises that make you smile!

Resurrection Sunday!

Alleluia! He is RiSon! I love that play on words. I tried today to drag my 45 year old body to attempt to go to sunrise service this morning at 6:00am. Yet with our extreme cold winds and my horrible allergies this year, I felt I would just attend our 9:00am service inside instead.

The morning to me, was spent the way I wanted it to be spent, with Jesus reliving the most miraculous time on Earth and I didn't want to spend it asleep. Not only that, our morning went smoothly. No arguing, everyone in a great mood, I was off to a great start with some caramel coffee. I was ready to go.

Troops marched off to their respective showers, got their chores out the way, house and rooms picked up, breakfast made, and time to get to church with minutes to spare. The message, as always very inspiring. We read about the resurrection of Jesus.

The interesting part of our sermon today, was that after witnessing all that Jesus had to show them, after Mary claiming to have been told by angels that Jesus was alive, and others claiming to have the same story of the empty tomb, two disciples were heading out of town despite what Jesus had told them. He reminded the disciples to stay in Jerusalem, when they heard and witnessed his resurrection. However, some still had their doubts. Some still didn't believe that Jesus was the Messiah the prophecy had foretold, they thought somehow that Jesus would change their current circumstances and probably fix all their problems in Rome. So after feeling yet even more discouraged they left.

They were joined, later after some grumbling about how let down they felt that Jesus didn't fix things, by Jesus himself, although He prevented them from knowing who He really was. Imagine that, complaining about Jesus to Jesus, Himself. Amazing! Then the two disciples share their story with Jesus, their expectations and let down and Jesus reminds them of all the things fulfilled based on Jesus' presence all this time.

After a time, the disciples arrive at their location for the evening and Jesus bids them farewell, only they insist He must stay with them, it's night after all. Jesus agrees and after breaking bread and offering thanks with them, He reveals who He really is to them and then disappears. Wonder what they were thinking? I know for me, I would feel so ashamed about my grumbling and complaining, I would lose it.

In that moment, they immediately left and headed back to Jerusalem, in a hurry to share the good news with everyone. It's at that moment in time, we find ourselves with the remainder of the disciples in the Upper Room when Jesus returns again to share His resurrection with the rest. I often wonder what transpired in both heaven and hell that day.

You know that when Jesus uttered those words, "It is finished!" that Satan panicked big time, and all of heaven fell silent! I couldn't imagine as a parent watching my only child die for someone else.

Yet even death could not contain Him, and it never will again! He is Alive and He has come to save us all from certain and everlasting death. He is preparing a place in heaven for each of us, where there will be no more pain, no more tears, no more death, just an eternal celebration where I will spend my entire eternity thanking my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all He did for me that day!

I must tell you that I would feel as the disciples did that day when Jesus reappeared to them after His resurrection. The joy can not be contained. Jesus blessed me today with an abundant amount of joy that no matter what anyone said or did, had no effect. My Lord Lives!

....and He shall reign forever and ever!!....Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

The Changed

This Saturday as we reflect the passing of our Savior who was still in between life and death, fighting to take back the keys from Satan who had one last remaining control over us, today I want you to think if there is anything in your life you feel as if God can remove from your life.

Some past sin that you feel is too great, a burden too great for God to remove, a fear that will not release you into His perfect peace. Just when you think there is something, remember this video.

Our God is Supreme, Loving, Full of Grace and willing to restore you as though it had never happened. What ever bad happened in your life, God will renew you and use it for His glory. You will be His testimony of just how GREAT HE IS!

Reflections for Holy Friday

Some 2ooo years ago today, the heavens and the earth fell silent as they mourned for the prince who would no longer exist in human form.

I wonder what the evening felt like when Jesus breathed His last and claimed, "It is finished!"

What were the feelings beyond utter grief and sadness for those that knew Him and now were without hope? Did any remember his words that He'd be back in three days or did they forget the power He possessed over death?

The Bible declares that when Jesus was on the cross it was about noon and the whole land became dark until 3pm because the sun did not shine and curtain in the Temple was torn in two.

Then Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Father, I give You My life." After Jesus said this, He died.

Joseph from Arimathea came and took Jesus' body down and laid in the tomb before sundown on Passover.

Yet two betrayed Jesus that day. Judas did it with a kiss, Peter with an oath in the courtyard. Both of them had heard Jesus predict their disobedience, and both were crushed at their own sins.

Judas unwilling to face his guilt, commits suicide.

Peter, shattered by his sin, broke down and wept like a child. Peter opened himself to confession, forgiveness, and resolve.

In the years that followed, Judas became an embarrassing memory.

Peter changed the world.

Remorse and repentance.

Two similar words, with incredibly potent differences.

When caught in sin, its very tempting to throw ourselves to the ground, groveling in remorse. But the message of these two unforgettable disciples is that while remorse ends a life, true repentance starts one all over again.

Jesus Christ has already died for your sin.

He paid the full price for it on the cross.

Recognize your failure, receive your pardon, and go forward in victory.

Don't let it be the end of your life - let it be a new beginning.

Let us remember why He did it. It was so we could look back on any pain, suffering, grief or sadness in our own life and could identify with Jesus that He knows exactly how we feel. There is nothing we are going through that He has not been through. He understands more than you realize! Let us not forget the price that He ultimately paid today!

Come quickly Lord Jesus, we await your return as promised!

Sharing Love

I just wanted to personally thank all of you who stop by here on your daily walk through the Internet world. It means so much that you find something meaningful here to stop you long enough to read it.

Most of all I want to thank my glorious Father in Heaven who has blessed me with the ability to find a way to share His love and messages through the blogging community via Heart2Heart.

When I first had a dream a few years ago, the name stuck out so much because that's what I feel I do with each of you. Is to sit down, by the river, near the fire and share a beautiful, intimate Heart to Heart conversation like great friends do.

Given the gift of encouragement provides me with opportunities to share with you things that I find in my daily walk with God. For awhile, my family and friends have been encouraging me to write a book, but I truly feel now isn't the time. I am waiting on God. I am waiting for the right reasons to do it, and not for my own.

So for now, I will try and commit to sharing my thoughts and inspiration God provides to me daily through my blog. Whatever you do, find the beautiful gift God has given you and use it to bring glory to Him. May it be inviting people to a wonderful home-cooked meal, or sharing coffee with a friend, or simply providing a willing ear for someone who truly needs to pour out their heart to someone, do it all for the glory of God.

Romans 12: 5-8 " so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully."

Time To Cross The Border!

“Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” (Psalm 86:11)

Ever have distractions that pop up and keep you from doing what God wants for you in your life? Perhaps it's food, Facebook, the computer, TV, volunteering, socializing, or even books.

I find we need to rethink our schedules and priorities each day and making sure we are balancing them with the important things, God, marriage, family, and our children before everything else. If we don't, those are the things we will place on a sacrificial alter of our own doing and reap whatever consequences befall us.

Especially with technology being more prevalent in our lives and in our families lives than ever before, we need boundaries. We need to know when enough is truly enough. For me, it means placing a limit on how many books I can review, what types I read, how much time I spend on the computer, and how much TV do I watch. For my husband, it's how many hours he's spending at work both traveling and at home.

I have to look at my personal life and see if I am wasting my time doing things that keep me from what's important. Do I have time to run errands and do things around the house for my family that need to be done regardless of the cost of my personal fun! I used to look back and see how much time was wasted and how many other things I could have accomplished because I settled for what I wanted instead of what was important. Priorities and boundaries!

Most of all, I need to begin and end my day with God in my thoughts, my heart and in my actions, thanking Him for everything that happens. A daily reminder that we wage a spiritual war and we must be prepared for battle on all fronts.

Unless this happen,s we will feel pressured, stressed and worn out, when God gives us the perfect amount of time to get everything done in 24 hours. How are you using yours today? If you are feeling worn out and tired, it may be time to re-evaluate your schedule and set new boundaries, keeping whats important at the top!

Stirring of Our Hearts and Souls

I am in my season of being watered, splashed, bathed, and refreshed with the joy of God's water spilling forth in my spiritual life and allowing me to drink deeply from that well. The water that will keep you thirsting for more. It truly satisfies like nothing else.

I truly believe that in all our walks we find time where we can invite God in. Not just in our fleeting, hurried prayers but when we sense ourselves just beginning to stir as we sense the morning light beneath our curtains. God whispers our name. He offers us a Good Morning. Can you hear it?

As I stretch beneath my still warm covers, I offer my morning wishes to God. I wish Him a Good Morning even though He doesn't require rest. He's been working all night once more. Keeping my thoughts from spilling over into worry or anxiety for things I don't have answers to. I can sense Him smiling, because He knows me. He knows me better than I know myself. I can almost seeing Him nodding at me too.

I begin my silent prayers this morning and thank Him for the promise of His will in my life. I surrender my thoughts to Him and ask that they bless those whose words and actions will follow me throughout my morning. I ask for His eyes to see the needs of those around me. To hear the smallest voices asking for help in my day. To sense whatever purposes I am called to do today, that I will do it willingly with a thankful heart and shower people around me with His love today.

I pray this before I even hit the floor because I know at some point I will become weak today. Frustration or lack of patience in something may try to ruin my day that I had planned out. Yes, God smiles because He knows my shortcomings in my day even before I arise from my bed. He smiles because He knows that no matter what happens, I will maintain my faith. I will push forward in my pursuit and even though I fail I will not let it keep me down.

I will look up into His strong face and I will reach out my hand to Him and ask for help. I will ask for resistance to avoid falling again. This time, I will walk with Him and not be in such a hurry to run ahead. I like walking with Him, talking about our day, and having Him show me just how much He loves me in how He lets my day unfold before me.

I will thank Him for the opportunity to use me in whatever capacity He needs me to today to accomplish His plans. Today I will reach out and take that step of faith. I will meditate on His word today and I will seek Him with my whole heart. Do you hear Him calling you? What is He saying to you?

What would you accomplish if you knew that you could not fail? Please share those thoughts with me today and thank you for stopping by and feeling refreshed by His waters today!

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better!" ~ Ephesians 1:17

Friday Funnies - Easter Chocolate Tips


If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating
it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and
strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal. It'll take the
edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the
freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the
fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of
the chocolate to protect themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from
the store in a hot car. The solution: If you eat them now, they
won't melt.

Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
Because no one wants to quit.

So with these tips in mind, please prepare for the chocolate feast! I know for one, I am!!!

Seeing God In Your Day

Do you ever have one of those days where you look back on the last few days and really see God's hand in your life?

I, for one, have lately. In recent days, I have had emails and book requests that have all culminated in regards to the same subject matter, drawing near to God.

I've read books dealing with the quality of a man's heart and soul in a Christian suspense thriller called Rooms. One of the very first books, I had uploaded to my Kindle. In addition, I've read a book called The Heavenly Host: The Testings of Devotion, that relates the story of the falling away of the angels and what heavens purpose is in dealing with them, Lucifer and the human race. And most recently, I had the pleasure to motivate in the right way in my personal life in the book, The Final Summit by Andy Andrews, one of my personal favorite authors.

Not only that, but in recent weeks, I believe I've read over 4 books dealing with end times prophecy, 2012, the unseen world, and God's purpose in all of it. The most eye-opening was Midnight Rising, a call for this generation to wake up!

The final straw for me, was having a conversation the other day with my oldest daughter who asked me if I believe that angels are around us, what happens to people who commit suicide as well as do I believe we are living in the last days.

Recently I feel like I have had a divine intervention with God in how I will respond to these questions and a renewal in my spiritual walk like I haven't had in awhile. Like a spiritual vitamin B12 shot almost.

I have a sense each morning that I am walking with God and releasing my life, not just parts of it, but all of it to Him and willing to accept the costs, good, bad or ugly. I have found peace and such quiet comfort in certain areas of my life. That's the best part. I'm not saying I don't get mad or frustrated, but I am asking to see things in the bigger picture through God's eyes, His control and His will and letting go of my own.

I am holding on to this time, because it doesn't always last as long as I would like. Perhaps like the vitamin B12 shots, it's not meant as a long term fix, but to provide the push and incentive I've been waiting for in my dry spell. Thank you for that God.

Dear God, as I spend the next few days reflecting on the last weeks of Jesus' life as we prepare for Easter, may my eyes be truly opened and my heart filled with the desires of Your life and Your will for me and my family. I ask that you show me compassion and love for people who need the hope I have and to provide them guidance to show them the way to Your home, an eternal life filled with the peace we all desire in our lives. Use me everyday, remind me before I wake that I can't begin my day without You and find time in my day to reflect on Your presence and talk with you throughout the day. I ask these things in Your mighty name, Amen!

“Blessed are the pure in heart, they will see God.” (Matthew 5:8)

Prayer for the Aging

When sweet “septuagenarian” Mary Maxwell was asked to give the invocation at a convention for senior-care experts she was honored to do so. She gave the opening prayer and then continued to do much more than that.

Her funny and thought invoking prayer gives new insight into the minds of our aging (aren’t we all?!) population.

If you know anyone who is aging or even who lives alone, this video will help open your eyes to a deeper understanding of their needs and concerns and fears but in a humorous way.

Using Technology In Innovative Ways

Sometimes in life it seems as though some people were just born or meant to fulfill a position. Eric Whitacre is one of those people.

Eric’s love for music was catapulted when he was singing in his college choir in Las Vegas. From that time on his career to uber composer began to sky-rocket.

Eric is known not only for composing – what are considered to be – masterpieces, but also for his creativity.

In this video his idea to unite people from all around the world materialized beautifully and they didn’t even have to leave their homes! What's even more amazing is that as his audience, we too are part of the virtual process. Truly beautiful and inspiring. Sounds like an angelic choir in heaven.

The Final Summit

David Ponder is 74 and what many would consider a very successful man. He has built up his vast financial empire without borrowing any money to acquire his real estate holdings, which in itself could be considered by many to be the pinnacle of determining success.

However David Ponder isn't happy. What he wishes more than anything most days is to end his life and return to heaven where his wife has already gone before him. He misses her so much and even though its been eight months ago. She wasn't even sick when she passed, just went to bed after spending the night with his daughter Jenny and their grandkids and never woke up. Never even said good-bye.

David's success has been in part due to The Seven Decisions that have been endowed to him as a gift from the angel Gabriel. He has allowed David to journey back in time to meet with people to provide him with wisdom and knowledge to move his life forward in the present. He values these encounters more than anything. He keeps the memories with him in a small worn out navy blue tobacco pouch. This encourage and motivate him when things or life get too hard to manage. Tonight is one of those nights.

Only tonight the archangel, Gabriel, has another plan for David. Is he about to get his wish to see Ellen or will Gabriel have a bigger message to show David?

In the sequel to the book, The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrew, The Final Summit continues our story once more with David Ponder. In this book the fate of all mankind may be in his own hands. How he will use his time and what decisions he will make will change things for everyone forever.

I received this book compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review. Since I hadn't read the first book, I was wondering if I would be missing out on anything. Yet being the master as weaving a heart-warming story once more, Andy takes us all on that journey and gives us a peek back into the gifts found in the first book as David revisits them one night.

Once in your life you come across prolific writers who in the creating of a story do more than just write a book, they change your life. Forever. This book does just that. It will change how you view every decision you will ever come across and face. It will challenge you to face your fears or be ruled by them forever, changing nothing. It gives us hope, provides wisdom, encourages courage, and teaches us self-discipline in the process. It restores what God had created in all of us. For that, I personally thank you Andy Andrews. This one, you won't want to miss. Hands down it inspires as never before with 5 amazing and talented stars. If you have never read a book penned by Mr. Andrews, start with this one, and then be prepared to capture his entire library of books. I know for one, I am.

Like The Noticer and The Heart Mender, The Final Summit will be joining them in my personal library and be read over and over again, sharing their life stories with friends and family.

This book is available in hardcover, CD, and eBook formats. For more information about this book, The Final Summit by Andy Andrews, more on the author including his website and where to pick up this copy, click on the link below:

Don't Worry, Pray

Don't Worry, Pray!

Why should we pray? There are many things I could say in response, but here is one reason why:

Prayer is the way by which God helps us to overcome our anxiety and worry.

We all know that life is full of troubles. We all struggle with concerns about our health, safety, family, finances, etc. In light of that, what should we do? Answer: Pray!

It's been said, "If your knees are shaking, kneel on them! So, the next time you are suddenly gripped with worry, turn it into a prayer.

The apostle Paul reminds us, "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6–7).

Notice that Paul doesn't say, "Pray about everything . . . if you do this, your problems will go away." Rather, it says, "If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand."

Now that is not to say that God cannot or will not remove your problem (or problems) because He sometimes does just that. But often, He will give us His strength and peace in the midst of the problem. In other words, we are able to put things into the proper perspective.

If you have a "big God"—by which I mean that you see God for who He really is—you will have "small problems."

It comes down to this:
  • Big God, small problems
  • Big problems, small God

I pray for all those blogging friends and family, that find themselves needing this message. I pray today that God will provide the peace you need to know that He will meet all your needs, when you let go and let Him handle things.
