Blood Pressures and Vintage People


Blood Pressure and Vintage People…..To those of you old enough to remember…I did not say the “Village People”. I said “Vintage People”.Village people

A couple of weeks prior to hip surgery we got together with two other couples that have been life long friends. We are calling ourselves “vintage” which was a term shared my one of my other friends that is 70.  We love to eat, play games and laugh. We laugh a lot. Continue reading

Christ and Grammar



Prepositions show positions.

Guess who works

IN us….

THROUGH us….. and FOR us?

And THROUGH whom do we have victory?

Galatians 2:20
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the Life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

1 John 4:12 “No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

1 Corinthians 15:57  “But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Romans 8:31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Once we surrender…He works. We are never left alone in any situation or circumstance. We always have an advocate. He is always working for our good. He has taken His position.

Once we get to that place…that place of total surrender we realize that there is simply no other way to live. We learn that being totally dependent on Him is how our life is victorious.

So often we don’t acknowledge that position in our lives. We are promised eternal salvation, but choose not to live in that peace daily. The peace HE can only provide.

Friends, it’s not about us. It’s about HIM.

Living that life surrendered and peaceful in the midst of any situation or circumstance points others to JESUS Christ. And we are able to live in a content state that can only be explained by His peace.

I hurt for people. But often times I do not share the answer when all I have to do is let Him live IN me, THROUGH me and FOR me.

I’m not sure others want what I have, but I never want it to be because of me getting in the way. In a world that is hurting so….we as believers have the real answer.

Does He have position in your life?

What’s Your Personal Rainbow?


The Yellow Bird

I believe God speaks to us in a variety of ways. He loves us that much. And if I am wrong…I will err on this side of love.

After all, he sent Noah a rainbow…why wouldn’t he send me a yellow bird? I believe He loves us each that much!

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” Genesis 9:16 Continue reading
