Each step of life is a journey that you choose to walk.

Each moment of life is another line, sentence, paragraph and chapter of the book called your life.

Enjoy all that life has to offer, good friends, good food, good coffee and as always wisdom and a good laugh.

All of Us

Living on the Eastern Shore is scenic, beautiful, and dangerous. Over the past couple of years I have had to evacuate my home twice because of the threat of a hurricane. The nice thing about hurricanes? You know they are coming. You can prepare and make a plan. Some storms you cannot see coming, like tornadoes (and yes we can get those too).

Life is a lot like where I live, it is beautiful and dangerous. When life is going the way we want it to, the way we expect it to, it is beautiful. When life is beautiful, we tend to not pay much attention to it, or even give thanks for the simplicity of the mundane. When storms hit, like tornadoes not hurricanes, we begin this crazy dance with tragedy and chaos. We call out to God for help when the storms in life turn us upside down and inside out.

God. Our refuge and strength. Is He our refuge and strength only during a storm?
Psalm 46:1 says, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
Many of us cling to the verse when we are hit with a major storm in our life. And, unfortunately, this is the only relationship we have with Him. God wants more. He desires to be in our lives and we in His, forever.

John 14:1-3,“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."
 Choose today, to give God all of you, every part and every area of you. It may be scary, but the next time a storm hits, you will no longer be crying out for help, but standing on the firm foundation before, during and after the storm.

~Peace & Blessings~
