Chased By The Enemy

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 My reading abruptly stopped as I heard my little Shih tzu, Kobee barking a strange bark from somewhere close outside the door. I never heard my husband’s voice calling him from their morning walk. I knew something wasn’t right, so I quickly ran outside to see what was going on. There on the top step was Kobee and two steps below was a strange, big, black dog. Kobee’s collar was not attached and my husband was no where in sight.

It's Too Heavy

“Share one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law.” Galatians 6:2 We needed sand for the summer decorating project at Touching Hearts, so off I went to purchase. Without a buggy in tow, I headed to the back of the store to simply grab a bag. I immediately knew that this little bag of sand was heavier than I thought. Instead of asking for help, I retrieved a nearby buggy and struggled to get it lowered within. As I made my way to the car, I strategized how I would lift the bag from the bottom of the buggy. My self-talk said just muster every ounce of strength and get it done. Others are waiting on the needed sand. Can I tell you it would have been a great funniest home video? As I pulled on
