Light in the Darkness

Have you ever stared at a full moon when it was bright gold against a pitch black sky? There are times when the night around us can seem overwhelming. Life events can rise up and press in on us. Night time is the time when our minds can spin away robbing us of peace and rest. It is often when circumstances loom large in our mind and challenge our souls. Satan is ready to capitalize on these times. His subtle lies abound in our heads and hearts and we can begin to feel isolated and alone. Circumstances can seem monumental and almost too much to deal with. I wanted to share this because there is another perspective I believe God would have us hold on to. In those dark moments He is always with

Unexpected Events

Normally when I write these posts I start of with the writing part and then once I have written I find a suitable photo to go with it, something that captures the idea of the article.

Seasons of Change

Have you ever noticed that when seasons change they never happen quite exactly as you were expecting? I was struck this past week about the amazing difference in our weather. It has been running in the high seventies and even a couple days in the eighties. It was a glorious pattern. Then a weather front affecting Canada changed all that by pushing a cold front into Michigan and we dropped to the fifties! We went from glorious sunny warm lovely days to windy, rainy damp days in a blink. "I didn't even have time to get out my warm clothes", I whined to God. I started off this new weather pattern with a bad attitude, just to be honest I was bummed. Then I started asking myself why I was bummed.
