A Bow in the Sky

I didn’t want to go. I was following what I sensed was a gentle holy nudge. As I parked my car, I noticed a small crowd had gathered just outside the building I was dreading entering. They seemed to be delighting in something just over my shoulder. I turned. There it was. A beautiful view […]

Thoughts on Prayer: Guest Blogger Cozinest

But God…I do love that phrase- I had been mulling over John 14:2 for a few days when I had the idea(I was unaware of the Holy nudge) to ask my  winsome and talented friend, Kim, to write it from a CoziNest perspective. I read her thoughts  through teary eyes. May this post touch you as deeply […]

It started softly snowing around 9 a.m. ish, normally this is enough to close schools and clear every Wal-Mart and grocery store shelf of […]

Cleansing and Refreshing

    Today was one of those days where I could have been four places at once. All were important. All were beneficial. I don’t know about you but, I can get overwhelmed when that happens. It leads to over analyzing my options. Consequently, I usually end up staying home due to the fact there […]

Thoughts on Prayer: Burden

houghts on Prayer : Burden   In a prayer meeting last night my pastor led a portion of the service where he invited us the altar to lay our burdens there. It was at this point he mentioned  we, as sheep, are not made to carry burdens. I had a deeper revelation of that truth. […]
