12.17.17 Prayer Prompt: Dealing with Negativity 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I have the meanest cat in the world.  Her name is Vivien Leigh, and she’s grumpy, short-tempered, cantankerous, and mean.  She’s known to bite, and after 14 years with her, I’ve learned to warn people not to be deceived by her curiosity when she approaches them.  I love Vivien Leigh, but I’m the only one who does.  My husband and son can’t … Continue reading 12.17.17 Prayer Prompt: Dealing with Negativity 

12.11.17 Prayer Prompt: I Am Weak But He Is Strong 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• There is a video circulating on Facebook of a “human flag.”  This guy can do all kinds of acrobatic tricks while holding himself perpendicular on a flagpole.  It’s an extraordinary example of physical strength.  When we talk about strength, this is generally what we’re talking about.  Being muscular and body-strong.  But the heart strength that comes from Jesus is what endures.  A … Continue reading 12.11.17 Prayer Prompt: I Am Weak But He Is Strong

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Isn’t this picture beautiful?  It was taken near Asheville, NC, about three hours from where I live.  (No, I didn’t take it…wish I had!)  I’ve visited about half of the US; have been to Canada, and parts of Europe; but no place is as beautiful to me as North Carolina.  A first generation North Carolinian, I love my home state.  But as … Continue reading 11.12.17 Prayer Prompt: Calling Heaven Home
