Reminders As We Start 2020


The year and decade may change, but God will never change.


There are always going to be troubles in this world, but Jesus has overcome the world and gives us peace.

Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020



This year was filled with a lot of learning and growing. It was a year of struggles and happy moments.

One of the most special and memorable moments of this year for me was watching the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. 

What is your best memory of 2019?
What are you looking forward to most in the new year?

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm 25:5

Finding Joy This Christmas Season


We get so caught up in the cares of this world, in the pain that we are feeling in the moment, that we forget to be grateful for the most amazing gift that has ever been given to us. A gift we don't deserve and that is better than anything we could ever imagine.

We get so wrapped up in gifts, in the traditions that we have made on earth, that we start to forget what Christmas is really about.

Christmas is about God's son coming to earth. He was born in a humble place for us. He lived to die, to take away our sins.

This year, as we struggle with health, finances, or whatever may be on our minds, let us put our focus on him.

This year, instead of thinking of the gifts or the pressure surrounding Christmas, let us find the light and joy of the season. Let us be thankful for the greatest gift ever.

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
1 John 4:14

Because of Jesus, Death Is Not The End



Christmas is a beautiful time because it holds promises and hope.
Jesus came to earth for us, to live and die for us. He rose again and offers us everlasting life.
Because of God's power and grace, evil will never win. Death is not the end.

'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
Revelation 21:4

Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
they will be remembered forever.

Psalm 112:6

There is so much to be thankful for this Christmas season and always!

Happy Thanksgiving Week


This Thanksgiving I am thankful for a God who never lets go.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4


Happy Thanksgiving week!

5 Things I Am Thankful For This November


1. I am thankful that it is above freezing and the snow is melting. It is still cold but not as bad as it was for a little bit.

2. For my nieces and nephews. They are so sweet and precious and fill me with so much joy.

3. For Jesus and that he came to earth, was born in a stable, and lived and died my sins.

4. For Christmas lights and music and the joy of the season.

5. For a warm home during the cold weather.

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
Psalm 95:2

What are you feeling thankful for this month?
