BOXYCHARM MARCH 2018

My identity is in Jesus Christ.  All of my life’s decisions must first be filtered through the truths of God’s Word.  I am a Christian.  And as a Christian, I represent Christ.  I tell the world, “look at me, I look like Christ”.  Except that that’s not always the case.  There are days when I […]

THE DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES

Hi, how are you today? How was yesterday? Will today be better than yesterday? Believe it or not, that depends on you.  How did you start your day today?  Did you begin the day with the Lord? Did you hear from Him by spending time in His Word? Did you talk to Him about your […]

I DON’T DESERVE IT, BUT…

Happy – Feeling or showing pleasure or contentment (Oxford Online Dictionary).  Why Lord, do people say You do not care about our happiness?

FEBRUARY FAVORITES

IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE…

This, ladies and gentlemen, is our bathroom sink.  This is our cat, Jazz.  This isn’t my doing, I promise.  I did not put her in there, anyone with a cat knows, cats NEVER do what we want them to do (reminds me of people).  Why is Jazz in our bathroom sink? We have been blessed […]

SHHH… DON’T SAY IT

I talk too much! I think it is somehow programmed in my DNA. I am prone to speak. Listening is a skill; I am still working on it. I talk to my husband, my children, friends and family. I even talk to myself, when no one is around.  Thankfully the walls are not talking back, […]

Lord, are you there? I remember asking that question as a child.  Are You there? Are You real, or a figment of my imagination? When I was about ten or eleven years old, I saw a dead body.  I had never seen a dead body before.  She was in her early to mid twenties, we […]

OH YES, HE LOVES ME

Why do we stray away from You? Was it intentional? Did I wake up one morning and say to myself, “I will stray from the Lord today”? More than likely, it started off slowly, giving in a little here and little there, gradually drifting away.  Lord, sometimes I forget I have an enemy, whose primary […]
