My Story

Well, I did not grow up in a Christian home. I grew up in the projects and did not even realize, at the time, that we were considered poor. It was home and it was where I was loved and played and learned respect for authority and my elders and I was happy. There was a lady in our neighborhood named Mrs. Turner who would entice us children with cookies and Kool-Aid to come into her back yard and she would tell us stories from the bible. There was a Lutheran church around the corner whose members would often come into our neighborhood and take us to church, and it was there that I saw my first film strip on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

“I had been in the Air Force for a few years and was stationed at Lackland AFB in San Antonio Texas when I got into a car accident that could have cost me my life if it had not been for God’s intervention. After the impact I found myself in so much pain, but I heard a voice call me by name, “Vera, turn off the car before it blows up.”

He Will Never Let Go

He Will Never Let Go

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I believe that we can look at a picture that someone has taken, and the Lord can use it to speak volumes to us. Case in point a few years ago when our grandson had to have surgery. Our grandson was only three years...

Skinny Jeans?

Skinny Jeans?

Research tells me that skinny jeans were introduced in 2005 and since then I have been asking myself, “What were they thinking?” I mean I consider myself an open-minded person but sometimes I grapple with some things. I mean did they mean for skinny jeans to describe...

Next!

Next!

The word next is defined as…what is coming immediately after. I picture kids standing in line waiting for that one who was in front of them to complete their turn knowing that because of the position that they are in line, they are NEXT! They are supposed to be the...

Encourage Yourself

Encourage Yourself

I got up this morning with a, “Thank You Jesus” on my heart. I am so grateful that I am alive and well this morning. God has given me another day to fulfill my destiny-my purpose here on planet earth. I am grateful that, by faith, I walk in divine health. I have a...

If, does not count!

If, does not count!

Two people are sitting across from each other and the one (we will call him Todd) begins his dialogue with (we will call him Tim). Todd says, “Tim, man please forgive me for all those things that I said about you and to you. It was wrong for me to call you out...

At Peace in the Midst of Chaos

At Peace in the Midst of Chaos

I told my husband the other day that it felt as if our whole world had been turned upside down! And yet amid all that is happening, I still have peace of mind. There are very few nights that I cannot sleep and very few days when I worry. I do not watch the news...

Regret…

Regret…

I was speaking to an individual recently and he made a statement, “If I could go back and do it all over again…” It immediately dawned on me that I had heard him express this more than a few times and it dawned on me that this man was “living” with regret. The thought...

Circle the Wagons

Circle the Wagons

I do not know about you, but God speaks to me using language that is familiar to me and gives me visions that are spiritual yet ordinary. With that said, I absolutely love shoot ‘em ups (westerns). A few days ago, I was on a prayer watch and I saw a bird’s eye view of...

No More Normal…

No More Normal…

A friend sent me a text yesterday and she said that in two weeks things on her job will probably go back to normal as things were opening back up again. I replied that I do not think that things will ever be normal again. I believe that we have turned a corner of no...
