He Loves to Make Your Dreams Come True

 

//  I giggled recently when I heard someone call Santa Claus a stalker because “He sees you when you’re sleeping, He knows when you’re awake.” Haha!

Thank goodness we don’t think the same about God—He even counts the number of hairs on your head and calls the stars by name.

But seriously, isn’t it a comfort to know that SOMEONE knows everything about you and doesn’t forget the important stuff?

About 25 years ago, I started my bucket list. Do you have a bucket list? Mine contains ALL of the things I want to accomplish in my lifetime but wasn’t able to do at that moment. I was a young mom in those days, and we only had one car. I was REALLY feeling trapped within our four walls and endless kid chaos.

Worthy: Not Even Oprah Can You Make You Feel This Good

//  I wandered around the room feeling a bit like Oprah. Microphone in hand, and looking for the first volunteer to speak.

The lights were dimmed, soft music coming from the keyboard, and Holy Spirit was working.

Don’t rush. Old labels were being removed, and new identities were being spoken.

Mother’s Day – The Forgotten Prayers

 

What a delightful surprise to wake up this morning and discover that my new book had been featured on Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday post! I was surprised, humbled, and thrilled all at the same time. Thank you, Kate! What an honour!

For the rest of the day, I’ve been trying to write my Five Minute Friday post and failing terribly. Swirling emotions and disjointed thoughts, but no words.

All I keep thinking is, “Whoa… It actually happened.”   

It’s been an incredible season of stress and stretching, excitement and vulnerability, prayer and follow-through. But it’s DONE!

The book I’ve been working on for so long, the one I’ve been talking about for years, the one I’ve been dreaming of for even longer is finally DONE!

AND I REALLY LIKE IT!    Read more
