When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

LIFE IS A JOURNEY
Our family journey's on the Blue
Ridge Parkway are so
memorable. A true high-
light of my life.
Now, another destination is
directly under our feet as we
take ONE step at a time! With
our eyes on our loving Lord,
Jesus Christ!

Pondering Thought From Daneille: 

I saw a quote today...really is so true, yet it seems like we won't be happy until we think we can get to where we want to be. Here's the quote:
"Life is a journey, not a destination."  My father always said; "Minister to that person right in front of you." My mama quoted the slogan; "Bloom where you are planted." There is a destination that is called eternity...for me that will be in Heaven with my Lord. But, for now I will enjoy this journey no matter how steep or narrow the path; this is a true and fulfilled life.  


Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your
own understandings, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will
direct your steps."

  1. "Often, Christians think that if Jesus Christ compels them to do something, He will lead them to success in the endeavor, if only they are obedient to Him. If you agree, then you are in for a rude awakening; our dreams of success are not God's ultimate purpose for us. The question of whether or not we arrive at a particular goal is not of primary importance. What we see as only the process of reaching a particular end, God often sees as the goal itself.

    If I can stay calm, faithful and unconfused while in the middle of the turmoil of life, the goal of the purpose of God is being accomplished in me. God is not working toward a particular finish-- His purpose is the process itself.

    God's purpose is to enable me to see that He can walk on the storms of my life right now. If we have a further goal in mind, we are not paying enough attention to the present. However, if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience and trust are the goal, then each moment as it comes becomes the real standard of success."

  2. Life is a journey. Don't fight it. Just live it for the Glory of God.

  3. I'm often too focused on either the past or the future to enjoy the present. How pitiful. Lord, help me with this weakness!

    1. Amen Chuck! For far too long I have longed for a better future. Find myself weeping over the past (especially as my children grow up). It is the journey. It is who is next to us, in front of us and all around that matter today.
      I know it is important to be organized, but so concerned that I organize God's leading out. Such a fine line, this comes by much time in His Presence. KNOWING HIM!
      Isn't it wonderful to be a child of God!
