Grief and hardship come to us all. The heartache you and I face helps put comparatively minor circumstances into perspective. I have friends and relatives who are suffering, those who now have an empty place in their lives due to the loss of a spouse or loved one. There are others who are waiting—waiting forContinue reading “God Loves You in Your Sorrow”

Jesus Heals a Woman on the Sabbath
Read Luke 13:10-16 I daresay that most of us have been around people with serious physical deformities or perhaps you yourself suffer from a particular physical challenge. I grew up with a brother who had a form of muscular dystrophy. He died at the age of twenty-eight, and actually that is a rather long lifeContinue reading “Jesus Heals a Woman on the Sabbath”
Washing the Feet of Jesus
Scripture: Luke 7:36-50 Have you ever done something for the Lord that seemed a little strange to others, but you were so passionate about it that what others thought didn’t matter? The woman in our story today is one such person. She has a passion to worship Jesus. It seems there is something about HimContinue reading “Washing the Feet of Jesus”
The Woman with the Bleed
Scripture: Mark 5:25-34 Jesus ministered to all kinds of people with a wide variety of illnesses and struggles. The one I want to look at today really touches my heart because it shows His concern for a condition that is almost uniquely that of a woman. And one that most of us would probably wantContinue reading “The Woman with the Bleed”

In case you don’t realize it, Christmas and the holidays that surround it can be a busy season! In all the rush we may feel a little lost and wonder what happened to the “true meaning” of Christmas. Many have found ways to keep Christ in Christmas such as celebrating advent, attending a Christmas EveContinue reading “Remembering”

The Grief of Two Sisters and the Compassion of Jesus
The death of a loved one can be traumatic to say the least. Aside from the sadness, the hole left in our lives, or any number of emotions, grief can sneak up on us and strike when we least expect it. A movie, a casual comment, hearing a phrase the loved one used, or evenContinue reading “The Grief of Two Sisters and the Compassion of Jesus”
Messed Up by Sin, but the Good News is….
I have entitled my blog “Find His Love” for a very specific reason—my desire to help women better understand the tremendous love God has for them as individuals. (And as I have said before men, you are welcome to read along.) I know what it is like to doubt God’s love. I know what itContinue reading “Messed Up by Sin, but the Good News is….”
Attitude, Balance, and Sisterly Strife
I have not written in over a month, and apologize to those of you who “can’t wait” to hear from me. Have any of you ever suffered from vertigo? If so, you have my sympathies. I could blame my delay in writing at least partially on that. It was a “fun” few days until IContinue reading “Attitude, Balance, and Sisterly Strife”
