The other day when I was praying with a friend of mine, I prayed the following prayer. “Lord, please do not let the insignificant things of this life keep us from the significant”. I could not help but think about how many insignificant things I spend my energy on.  I also couldn’t help but think about how often we spend so much time on the small and meaningless things that keep us from what really matters and what is really important.  Sadly, we can one day wake up and find ourselves...

I love this Thankful Thusday so I thought I would share it again!  I hope you love it too! What if on this Thankful Thursday … You lose your keys … You lose your dog … You can’t find your purse and you’re late to a meeting … You get home with all the hamburgers and no fries … Or you’re at the checkout at some grocery store and realize  you forgot the eggs in the deepest darkest part of the store.

Thankful Thursdays ~ Some Thursday’s Are Easier Than Others

Each week I rarely come to the computer without an idea and a message I feel God wants me to share… However, this Thankful Thursday it was a bit different for me.  My heart and my mind seemed to spin with ideas but I was devoid of a confirmation, that was until I was returning an email to the middle Son of Thunders music teacher early this morning.  You see, it has been a long, long seven days for the middle Son, since he has been fighting a virus starting late in the evening on Friday.  He was...

At the Winters Villa, we call it “hitting your wall”. You may call it something else at your house, but we call “It” that.  The thing you feel when you know you can’t take one more step, one more move, one more phone call not returned, one more whatever.  It is when you’re flat-out “spent”. You have nothing left to give yourself – or anyone else for that matter. To be honest friends, I have felt that more than once in the last several years.  Starting over a...
