He Still Sees

In Mark 6, there is an account of a time when Jesus sent His disciples to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, while He went up onto a mountain to pray. During the night, while the disciples tried to make their way across this relatively small lake, the winds kicked up and the…

Getting Ready to Write!

Writing scripture doesn’t require anyone to spend any money…however, if you’d like to print out the file…here’s one way!

Write On My Heart Every Word – Scripture Writing 2022

If you’re new to writing scripture, get ready for your life to change! And isn’t that what our life should be about? Tenderizing our hearts and shaping our lives and attitudes in order to look more like the Lord? If you spend just a little time on this effort each day, you will be changed…

Let’s Write Again in 2021!

2020. What. A. Year. This scripture writing project began last year because I wanted to do something with my Mom that would keep us both busy in God’s word. Of course, others have done it for many years, and I loved the simplicity and practicality of it. I thought it would be great if Mom…

Writing the Word in 2020

Here is the scripture-writing PDF for 2020 (in a PDF link at the bottom,) for those of you who would like to join us. It is very informally done and has typos and formatting errors, no doubt – I’m sorry! I had intended it just to be between my mother and me, but I’m so…

Have I Not Sent You?

I just love how God called Gideon a “mighty man of valor” before he’d done anything remotely valiant, even when he was a little bitter and a lot doubtful, and even when he needed reassurance, over and over again.  To me, a valiant warrior is someone who charges into battle, unquestioningly following his leader with…

The God To Whom I Belong

Sunday morning in Rome, our little group left Hotel Gioberti and set out on a half-mile walk around a few corners and down a sloped street to a small villa. A tall, medieval-looking door barred our entrance (until we figured out that we needed to ring the bell) and then opened onto a dark corridor…

Be Still My Soul

Be still, my soul, the Lord is on thy side; bear patiently the cross of grief or pain. Leave to thy God to order and provide; in every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul, thy best, thy heavenly Friend – through thorny ways leads to a joyful end. Be still, my soul,…

I’ll Never Forget This

I’m already absolutely dreading the coming of Friday and parting with these beautiful friends. Over and over in my mind for the past week and a half, I’ve heard the lyrics – “the Lord has been mindful of me…He blesses and blesses again!” I am so, so thankful to have been blessed to be part…

Pray With Your Eyes Wide Open

I suppose I have always imagined Jesus as being immune to feelings. I’m not sure why, other than the fact that He was strong enough to fearlessly stand up to the self-righteous, and disciplined enough to refuse to be provoked. Someone that strong and self-disciplined must not be sensitive to silly little things like feelings,…
