Daddy’s Girls

Do you ever just stop and ponder how and why we were created? We live in a time when a woman’s body has become such a commodity. A beautiful women can sell cars, boats, vacations, clothes, motorcycles, tool chests, tools, perfume, restaurants, and so on. I could fill pages of the things a beautiful sensual woman can sell. Just recently a restaurant chain showed a woman eating a hamburger on a commercial and it wasn’t PG either. Let’s go to the “Garden of Eden” and read about our beginning. Genesis 2:21-24 “21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, theLord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. 23 “At last!” the man...

Squashed Banana

This morning I woke up feeling like a squashed banana! I feel like so many trials are squeezing me. So many things to do and not sure what to do next. My children,  father, family, friends, home, work, and so on… I get exhausted just writing about it! What calamity will happen next in our home and what battle should I pick to stake my ground? What things do I ignore and what things do I deal with? I get so confused? So I go into my quiet place (my closet )and pray no one finds me. I drop to my knees and cry out, “No More Lord, No More”. I tell God I’m on over load my plate is to full!! I feel better now I’ve done what the bible tells me to do “Give it all to God” Then no sooner do I walk out of my refuge an earth quake hits, 10.5 on the richter scale, with one...

Finish Line

Saturday night as I was getting ready to write on the resurrection of Jesus I received heart -wrenching news. My dad was rushed to the hospital because he was unable to swallow and was choking.  Dad has been suffering from Parkinson’s for many years but now this wicked disease has taken over his body. He can no longer do the simplest tasks even a smile takes a lot of effort. Here is a man who truly loved his family and worked hard to provide for them. Our home was filled with love, laughter, music, and the best Mexican food ever! Even though my dad wasn’t a Christian he was one of the kindest, most giving, encouraging, and selfless man I have ever met. You know that saying ”Mi Casa es  Tu Casa” well my dad believed this and lived it. Our home was always opened to...

Empty

Have you ever woken up feeling so empty. Even when I went into my closet (my special place with God) there were no words in my heart to share. So many times I have found my self in this predicament and I confess I use to “Hate It!” But today I am embracing it. Let me explain my simple thinking. When I am hungry I eat, when I’m tired I rest, when I’m thirsty I drink, when I’m dirty I wash, when I’m hot I get cool, and when I am cool I get warm. So today because I am empty I will “fill up.” I will get on my knees and ask God what it is he wants to teach me today. I will open his word and passionately seek  treasures to fill my chest. If we are not actively pursuing God we will not make it in a world that swallows up!...
