Words of Blessing - Touching the Life of a Young Mom

Years ago when I was a young mom, an older woman in church gave me a little card with a handwritten Bible verse. I kept it tucked in my Bible for years and felt her prayer each time I read it.

 
Vivian inspired me with her teacup collection - every cup and saucer was different. I've collected individual teacups and share tea with visitors to express our uniqueness. My guests choose their cup just like God chooses them to be His child. My collection is no where near Vivian's, but it reminds me of how precious we are to God.

Unplugging - So I can Listen

 
In a world of technology, there's hardly a moment when we are not plugged in to something - phones, iPads, computers, Kindles, social media sites...it's tough to escape the cords that threaten to strangle us.

But there comes a time when the clamor gets too loud and the temptation to check email every hour becomes an excess. (I think I hear a few heads nodding out there....okay, so heads nodding don't make noise..)
