taking the rainbow back…

For many years I collected Noah’s Arks.

Large, small, manufactured or carved – many of which were given to me as gifts.

Our home was littered with them!

When we moved to our current home in 2014 it felt like it was time to pare the collection down & let many of them go. It was a wonderful opportunity to share the mutual love of God’s covenant with others – not to mention all the littles, who were so eager to play with the many miniature animals! However, a few do still remain in my possession – a beautiful print gifted to me by my sister & her family along with a hand-carved rendition that my grandchildren now play with, given by my mother.

I collected them because of the “Promise.”

Rainbows are a sign of hope from God.

He isn’t a police God, but a Father who pledged to be patient and offer His grace.

Whether others know it or not, every rainbow they use means God hasn’t given up on them.

Don’t give up on those who do not know, understand or remember Who it is that gave us the rainbow. Or why.

I know I haven’t.

And my prayer is that one day the One who gifted it to us will be embraced by all. But for today I’m taking it back! While looking for the opportunity to share it with any who wish to receive the Promise now.

hugs n’ blessings because His promise still stands!

light of my life

In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

John 1:4

Lord, I choose to believe today that Your Son is the true light for this world. While I was lost it was His goodness that led me. When this life is hard to live and I get hurt because of its brokenness, I will still find joy in my Savior. My life starts and ends in Him. Because of His sacrifice, there will be a day when there is no more heartache or pain.

I long for that day, Lord, when Jesus comes back to rescue us all again. And I am confident that He will return like He promised. Until then I will do my best to confidently share the light of Christ with all those around me in my words and actions.


And I do hope you will confidently join me!

hugs n’ blessings to all those bringing their light into the world.

tiny faith

“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.

Matthew 17:20

Lord, thank You for being You. Praise be, Your plans aren’t hindered by my humanness. When my faith shakes because of my current circumstances, I know that it won’t affect Your will. You are powerful and limitless. While You long for me to be a part of Your plans, I don’t define them. But….I do want in!

Give me the courage!

Let me access the faith that moves mountains, God!
