The Gift of Life


I spent some time visiting people this week and during one of the visits I received the beautiful gift of this July Cactus!   It is a clipping from a larger plant and when I got it-it was just a bud.

Look at her now!


Just as I enjoy watching flowers bloom and come to life- I love watching people fall in love with God and discovering who they are in Christ! 

THIS is why we pastor, preach, pray and persevere.  There is an extravagant love just waiting to burst on the scene through each person ( bud) .


So, for all of my Pastor, preacher friends-keep on keepin’ on-because this is what is being developed and eventually it WILL come to life! 


The seed hits fertile ground

God waters and nourishes

the Body of Christ tills & fertilizes

it takes root

no job any more important than another

all working under the head of Christ

in unison with the Holy Spirit

to produce a beautiful harvest

and GOD gets ALL the GLORY

forever and ever





If you are reading this…take a minute and pray for the Body of Christ today…

the lost,

the homeless,

the broken,

the needy,

the lonely.











Pray for your church,

your home,

your husband,

your wife,

your sister,

your brother,

your mother,

your father.


Pray for your sons,

your daughters,

your children

your family.


We are in the fight of our lives. 

Don’t be afraid.

God is always with you,

around you,

and in you.

when you call to Him

He will hear you…



glory and honor all to God.

I love to read, draw and be with my family. If the reading inspires me, then I draw what I read. Almost everything I draw is based around or about Jesus Christ.
