"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." – Ecclesiastes 4:12 I married my best friend, as of 7/12/14  I am now his Mrs. He and I and our God, a strong cord of three! My life is full and extremely blessed!

Don't Dummy Down

POINT to PONDER: "Never EVER dummy down your faith to fit your doubts." (Steve Brown) If we whittle down and chisel away at our faith and get it to fit today's doubt, someday we WILL need that faith, and that faith will look small and pathetic in the face of the NEED. "Never ever dummy down..." Cultivate and grow...

Un-needed Load

In reading an article in one of my favorite magazines, "Just Between Us" (women in ministry) I read a quote that JUMPED off the pages, and lovingly wrapped its arms around me, and caused me to slow down and refocus: "Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength" ~ Corrie Ten Boom (pondering and positioning)

Progression of Praise

"If you do not know my pain you will never understand my praise." These words were written by Juanita Bynum, but they could have been penned by King David as well. Psalm 3 is known to have been written when he fled his son Absalom's pursuit of him. "But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah." (v.3) Praise in the midst of pain. Praise that follows pain. Praise that proceeds pain. PRAISE.

Red Letter Day (He is risen indeed)

It is an amazing time in the Word to scan quickly and read ONLY the words in red, Jesus' words. To me the words that stand out with flashing blinking lights (ok, so they really don't, but they COULD!) Jn. 19:30 "It is finished" As Jesus willingly dies on the cross and gives up His Spirit to His Father ~ He now the bridge of relationship back to the Father for ALL mankind. WOW. As we would say in this generation, "It's a done deal."

Easter. Jesus lives - dies - resurrects! What a red-letter day! May we too experience Jesus' words PERSONALLY. It is finished!

In Him, DeDe
