Have you ever thought about when you get to the end of your journey? What it would be like to look back? And to think about the important things?

WHAT IF…we looked back and realize that one of the really important things was that we drew a circle?

                       I am pondering that part of my journey.

What have I drawn circles around? What is the something or things that seem impossible, and then totally place them into the control of YHWH?

                                            How often do I do this?

Each prayer is like a seed planted into the ground. It disappears for a season, but it eventually bears fruit that blesses future generations. (The Circle Maker)


When I think about the event of Monday, March 12, 2012, I am in awe of Yahweh's protection and power.  So many times we take for granted the moment by moment plan He has for each of us as his children.

That day, Kevin and I had gone to work. We both were leaving a little early, around 3PM, to head out to Arrow for a church-wide community project. And we decided as part of our spring break, our home group would work for a few hours on Monday night.

Kevin headed to Arrow and  I headed home to change clothes. While at home, I met up with my friend and neighbor, April, so we could ride together. Jerod, her hubby, was meeting us after he got off work around 5-5:30PM.

Our two youngest were a part of the “Serve” project with our church and had been at Arrow all day.

Our oldest, was planning to babysit the Talbott kiddos so they could join us at the project site. The time was around 4:30PM.

Kevin received a call from Kristen to get directions on how to get to our friend’s house. AND, around 5:30PM …the call…

I feel as though time was moving slowly and our Heavenly Father was moving everything and everyone in HIS timing!

Here is why…Kristen hit her brake just at the “right” time to miss a car hitting her in the door. Jerod, our neighbor, was just getting home and was able to be with her before we arrived at the scene. Both drivers walked away from the accident.

So blessed and so thankful for the moment by moment plan!!!!



Well, today, I was made aware of a mission and message that I can NOT be quiet about. I can NOT sit and not share…


KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.

The cold mist, the visible breath, hats, scarfs and warm gloves. The season of rest is near...

A time where God lets all "rest."

My prayer is to take time to enjoy the moments, see all the details, and hibernate from the busyness. I am looking forward to what that is going to look like this year.

Because God took our family through an amazing restful 2010 winter ...and moved us into a time of change...

new rest is around the corner.
