Umbrella Ministry

by Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon Don’t you just love rainy days? There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book and a cup of tea on a dark and rainy day. So cozy and comfortable. Ahh…I love rainy days. Unless I have to run errands. With three kids in tow. Of those rainy days, I… Continue reading Umbrella Ministry

Did We Take a Wrong Turn?

Did we take a wrong turn somewhere, God? This path we’re on is bumpier than I expected. I’m not seeing many "green pastures" or much "still water." It’s certainly not glamorous.

Come Close

"Don't You care that she's not helping me?" Martha's words reflected the turmoil in her soul. With so much to do, how could Mary just sit there? Did she forget about their large dinner party tonight? The food wouldn't cook itself! Martha wanted so much for everything to be perfect - the meal, the accommodations,… Continue reading Come Close

Redefining Success, Part 1

"If at first you don't succeed, redefine success." That quote hangs on the wall at a fast-food restaurant we visited earlier this week. At first, I chuckled and thought it was just a silly quote. But the longer I thought about it, the more I realized - there is some truth to it. In fact,… Continue reading Redefining Success, Part 1

Life-Giving Breath

"Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being" Gen. 2:7. "I wish I could give you my breath!" My sweet husband's words still echo in my heart. This week, I've been fighting a… Continue reading Life-Giving Breath
