Priorities

So, this week has been a real eye-opener for me. The past few months have been a period of extreme growth and spiritual awakening for me. And maybe I got a bit too cavalier about everything. Maybe I let pride get a little bit of a foothold. Maybe I just let anxiety get the better

No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.  1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With

The Butterfly Effect

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early. Normally, I start it October 1st and watch a horror movie every day until after Halloween. I say normally, but let’s be real. Actual start date usually ends up falling somewhere in the last week

Horror, Yay or Nay?

John 8:1-11 1 Corinthians 13 Mark 12: 30-31 It’s that time of year, the time for hot chocolate and sweaters (yes I wear sweaters in Florida), the time for carving pumpkins and my all time favorite, watching horror movies! I can feel your looks of disgust even as I write it, but it’s true. I

Saved For Later

Everyday, after the kids are off to school and I’ve had a sufficient amount of coffee and prayer time, I stop everything and make the best possible lunch for my boyfriend. Yes, I’m corny, yes, it wastes some of my time. And yes, I get excited like a 12-year-old girl meeting her crush to see

Blast From The Past : Drowning In Fear

This post was originally published on HolyLemonade.blogspot.com. I originally started a blog on WordPress.org a few years ago called Holy Lemonade. As life would have it, I was unable to pay for the hosting and domain and I lost all of my hard work. There’s probably a way to recover these posts, but at the

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day Two

Psalm 2 This passage reminds me of when my kids were babies. My son was a late talker, and he was the ripe old age of 3 when he spoke, or rather yelled, his first sentence. I remember it perfectly. I had Halle in the high-chair, desperately trying to get her to eat her food
