"Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men. At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone."Titus 3:1-8
I am honored to have two contributions in "Everyday Confetti" by Karen Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer.

My sweet friend and author,
Lysa TerKeurst, graciously invited
me to share a few words
in her newest book "Unglued".
My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. - Psalm 45:1

"Only one thing is needed..." to spend time with the Lord. (Luke 10:42) I am a student of God's word, aware of my desperate need for His truth and life. My favorite time of day is the early morning when the house is still and quiet. I turn on the Keurig coffee machine for me and my husband, Jim. I go to my "sanctuary" (dining room table) and spend time in God's Word and listening for His still, small voice. I cherish and need this time. "One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple." (Psalm 27:4) God blessed me with a devoted husband and two precious children, Joshua and Gabrielle. For Jim and me, our heart's prayer is that they walk in the Truth every moment of their lives. (3 John 1:4) That's what our Heavenly Father wants for us as His children. With a thankful heart, I love and revere our amazing God. Our desire as a family is to honor Him. By His grace. For His glory. I also love writing, spending time with cherished girlfriends, wearing slightly sassy shoes, collecting and sending unique note cards, shopping with coupons, scrapbooking, and watching The Weather Channel.
