We head six hours south every chance we get to see our first grandchild. She has most certainly captured our hearts. She is 7 weeks old and time is going faster with her than it did with our own sons. Could it be because it is not day-to-day with her and just cuddling and loving when we see her? Continue reading
Have you ever watched the sailboats and ships while sitting on the shoreline? Some of them seem to glide effortlessly across the water. Others seem to go at a much slower pace. Some even appear to have dropped their anchor and just sit still.
An anchor is a device, normally made of metal, used to connect a vessel to the bed of a body of water to prevent the craft from drifting due to wind or current.
Do you ever feel like you are being tossed back and forth in the waves of “life”? There were many times in my life that I wondered if I could hang on myself. And sometimes I was drifting and did not know it until I saw the distance to the shore!
We have coasted out from the shoreline a time or two on boats. No wake, the water crystal clear and beautiful. We wanted to stay there…in the peaceful and calm water. But the wind or even other boats’ waves would move us up and down, side to side. How on earth could we stay put?
Our soul, once given up to Christ, is firm and secure! What do we know about anchors? They are stable, they are buried and they stay firm! Good news, is that we can say the same for our souls…once we have been born again. The anchor holds!
Are those seas rough? Are you being tossed a little too much for your liking? Grab hold of that anchor!

Time not well spent. The minute I would walk out the door, my hair demanded its own way. More curl, more frizz and more kink!
And yet….. Continue reading
