A warm welcome to you! Thank you for stopping by. As you read through my pages, I believe you will find that I am just like you—a woman who loves the Lord and cherishes His grace. And, like you, I sometimes grow weary from the journey. I have experienced many difficult places in my life—a brother’s suicide, my mom’s young death, cancer, a prodigal child, extensive unemployment. There have been times when I thought I couldn’t go on. But, God…don’t you love that? But God carried me through and opened my eyes to see Him in my midst. He opened my ears to hear His sweet whispers of love.

Take hope in the knowledge that you are cherished by the One who made you—you are sheltered in the shadow of His wing, close to His heart. It is my prayer that as we get to know one another you, too, will see beyond the veil and will learn to say, “Even so, I walk in the Presence of the Lord”

With joy,
Nan

Lord, thank You for Your longsuffering with us. Your patience is truly amazing, especially when it comes to our stinking thinking.

Why do we do that? Why do we listen to the lies of the enemy, decide to dwell there, and then get our panties in a wad because anxiety takes over? It’s ridiculous that we would fall for Satan’s lies rather then standing firm in Your truth.

The Father of Lights. There is No Shadow of Turning

The Father of Lights. There is No Shadow of Turning

Sunlight blazed from the summer sky filling the earth with heaven’s light. The Spirit of God made His Presence known all about me as the gentle breeze whispered through the pines. Walking along our country road, I found refuge beneath His wing — the Father of Lights casting exquisite sunbeams through the canopy of interlocking pine, oak, and elm. Birds called from the treetops. White-tail deer sprinted from the creek into the forest’s safety.

Creation declared His glory all about me — His glory is always proclaimed.

Faith-Steps Occur in Darkness, Lit Only by the Grace of God

Faith-Steps Occur in Darkness, Lit Only by the Grace of God

Eyes widened with wonder as the enormous pillar of cloud spun, lifted, and moved to place itself between the enemy and God’s children. Never before on this long, arduous wilderness journey had they witnessed such an intentional move of protection from their God. Faith-steps had been taken as they trusted Moses, for sure, but this … this was different.
