Seasons of personal and career transition can provoke feelings of fear and insecurity, or hope and excitement. How about you? Are you restlessly or patiently waiting for God to unfold his plan your life? Let me ask the question this way... Is your within life freaking out or holding steady as you navigate your way through seasons … Continue reading Waiting Within
This past Saturday morning I got up much earlier (4:30am) than I normally do to do some reading. The weather was pleasant - so I took my coffee-n-book party (with myself) out to the patio - and found my entire 1/2 acre backyard filled with fog. As I read, and sipped, and prayed, and enjoyed the … Continue reading The Fog Within
I'll be back up on-line soon! Betsy

Has it been a week already since I last wrote? "Holy blog-day Batman!" (Sorry...I'm a child of the comic-classic 60's ...forgive me...don't know what just came over me). Ok, in all seriousness... In my post last week, I told you that I would be introducing you to my friend Michele. So let me begin by … Continue reading All Things Weak – Part 3: Michele & Mustard Seeds
I'm taking a detour from Part 3 of All Things Weak due to an unexpected trip I made this week to Prescott, AZ to house sit for a friend. The bonus is that I also get to spend time with my #6 child, Brad who lives here and serves on staff at The Heights Church and catch … Continue reading Matters of the Heart
“Leveraging Weakness” – is a phrase I recently came across on more than one occasion. Whenever that happens (when I encounter repeated themes), I usually know God is trying to speak to me about something; it seems to be his way of reinforcing a truth he is teaching me. And for those of you who … Continue reading Leverage Your Weakness! Are You Kidding Me?
Yesterday morning, while having my morning coffee on the patio, my husband (who at times can’t help himself) told me that while we were on our bike ride the evening before, that he ‘smelled’ God. I lovingly smiled and said, "You did? And what did God smell like?" Without missing a beat he said, "Pine … Continue reading Wait… WHAT? You Smelled Who?
