Suddenly life can take a major turn! As an Intercessor, I often had an appointment with the Lord. It was not because I was so holy. It was out of desperation to see my life change. Prayer had been and still is my lifeline, my sustenance, my daily bread.  The Lord taught me an important […]

The Invitation

It was a warm day and the sunshine was beckoning me to leave my work behind and step into its brilliant rays.  The light seemed to strike my porch as an invitation to sit in my porch swing and leave my worries behind. I took it seriously and responded immediately.  With each creak of the […]

Purity of Heart

Words convey ideas. Words generate pictures. Words allow for communication between us and the rest of the world.

Bouncing Words

The Power of Influential Words

I am rarely at a loss for words. Words express thoughts and ideas. Words are the substance of communication along with gestures, facial expressions, and body language. Words are powerful in themselves, but become more so when they are heard or read generating a response. It would be safe to say that words carry influence […]

Fumbled, Foiled, or Fused

I’m not a football fan, but my husband is. He watches it periodically, so therefore I am exposed to some of the terms used by the announcers. One of the words often used is “fumbled.” Evidently if the ball is not caught or dropped after it is caught, it is fumbled. I like the word. […]
