In Due Time

Sometimes life takes twists and turns that end us up in a place we never expected. The opposite of what we have prayed and hoped for. What do you do when expectations turn into disappointments?
“In Due Time”  1 Peter 5:6; doesn’t have to be a mystery. Don’t be a prisoner or imprison your family to the disappointment of unmet expectations.

Beautiful Things

What about when life looks different than you thought.......When you see what you dreamed or expected to happen just did not happen. God took me on an amazing journey a few years back which revealed my pursuit of a normal family. He gently showed me that normal is not in the kingdom vocabulary, and I would always be restless trying to obtain it. Today, I am surrounded by "Beautiful Things" that were not a part of my original plans but certainly a part of God's. This story below is a similar one that is sure to bless, give  hope and encourage you.

Who’s to Say Who’s Wrong or Right?

The great proverb about parenting found in Proverbs 22 used to be so perplexing to me. “Train a child up in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.” "Train" is so vague and open-ended. How do we know if we are doing the right training that will bring about the “when they are old they will not turn from it”? Is there one training that fits all?

When my husband and I have gone through difficult seasons in parenting, we were reminded of this by our community. We did believe overall that we had raised our kids well and right but we made plenty of mistakes and bad choices too. Parenting is tough! More is required of a person to obtain a driver’s license than to become a parent. How do you know if you are doing it great, right or even good enough?

The Torment Of Comparison

Comparison is such a tricky, sneaky, divisive tool of the enemy. It’s also essential in many parts and purchases in life. It’s smart to compare prices and research for the smartest choice. But the torment of comparison that we put on ourselves and those we love is in no way beneficial.

I have struggled with comparison as long as I can remember. I was raised by special needs parents and a very strong, controlling grandmother. My family was far from “normal,” and I believed I was less than as a result. My grandmother sacrificed her latter years for my sister and I. She was the greatest woman I will ever know! At the same time, she did put a good degree of comparison on us. Needless to say, we tried - but never really measured up - to the standard she had set.
