These two ...

... minus the bear (whose name is Camelda, if you are wondering) are totally LIVING IT UP in heaven! Holy cow! I can almost picture it some and I wouldn't wish them back here for any reason at all, in spite of missing them.
I'm reading a book by Francis Chan and his wife called, "You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity." Good gravy! It's a perspective changer/reminder. So much truth in it. Did I say good gravy! I read this part yesterday ...
"If you'd rather watch your kids grow up than see the face of your Savior today, you don't grasp the beauty of God. If you worry about what would happen to your children if you were gone, you don't understand the providence of God. Pray for a deeper understanding of His worth and sovereignty. Pray earnestly until you are infatuated with seeing His face."
Tears. I immediately recalled a conversation with my sweet Momma the November before she knew she was sick. It went something like this, "Honey, if it comes down to a choice between staying here with you and going to be with Jesus, no offense, but I'm choosing Jesus." I guess that could be shocking to some. But, she got it. What an amazing legacy! And, now she's hanging at Jesus' feet and whatever other awesome, amazing things there are to do in heaven. For eternity. I wonder if she's had a chat with Peter yet and told him she has a daughter who is a bit mouthy and impulsive like him? :) Or if she has met Deborah and talked with her about my name?
Like I said, jealous! This world is not our home. So, I'll enjoy it while I'm here .... but I will willfully choose and constantly remind myself to keep my eyes on Him.

Scripture 2 :)

So, I am a wee behind getting this posted (thank you migraine), but here is my next verse:

"I tell you this: on the day of judgment people will be called to account for every careless word they ever said." Matthew 12:36  (Voice)

Siesta Scripture Memory Team ... Go Sisters!

I am joining a few sisters here, and lots of sisters around the US, in memorizing the Word, specifically 24 verses, in 2015. It could be more than that, but I am definitely going to know 24 by heart. And, not the ones I already know by heart, in case you are wondering.  It's all about accountability. So here is my first verse ...
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."  Phil 4:8 ESV

 * BTW, this awesome idea comes from Beth Moore. If you want to participate, it's not too late. Get on her blog ( and join in! His Word is alive and active!

Hello 2015!!!

So excited to see what God has in store for this year ... thinking differently.
Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
- Isaiah 43:18-19 AMP
