Joy & God Repeating

JOY…This week, God has shown me scriptures in the Bible, several different books and now, the sermon today WAS ABOUT JOY!  Joy is when God talks to me so personally!  I already have been blogging this week about joy and am 100% sure, this is what God is wanting me to learn right now.  And […]

You See it too?

Hitting Phoenix high of 118, our wildlife have been clamoring for water. Here in emoticon form, is a fair representation of God’s visiting creatures, minus our roadrunners…🐇🐿🐀🐦🦉🦎🦅🦋🐜🦂🕷🦟. We have 6 big bowls of water and a baby bowl. Some bowls are plain colored, some with pictures on the bottom. This tidbit of info becomes pertinent […]

Carefree Like These Guys?

I am so confused. If you ever watched the TV series “Monk,” I may be the female version, including the curly hair and detective skills. I like routine. I like structure. I like organization. I like planning. None of these have happened lately. What am I talking about…none of these have happened this whole year! […]

I see Jesus in you

Good Friday blog. Jesus is selfless. I just saw Jesus in a close relative and feel the need to share. We have a close relative that within 1.5 months, found out she has cancer, got many tests (bloodwork and scans), had such pain that a trip to ER was necessary, is currently suffering through both […]

God & the Modem

Another amazing God story, a lesson about Him knowing what is best! I want to keep this as short as possible so I hope you can follow this. Century Link, our internet service provider, did some repairs in our area that we were unaware of. Next morning (Tuesday), we had no internet. Called and we […]

What to do God?

Dave is working on a project and the answer isn’t clear. The answer he received yesterday leads to more questions instead of clarifying. Muddle, muddle, muddle. Can you relate? The answer to life’s questions is simple! I prayed “Dear God, you know this current issue and know the answer because you know everything. We come […]

Nutty & Buddy Surface Needs versus Deep Needs

Buddy (just stopped wagging his tail): Why the long face Nutty? Nutty: I don’t know, post-Advent blues I guess. Nutty: Well, now that Advent is over I have to start thinking more about real life. 2020 is here, taxes will be due soon and mine are sooo complicated. I haven’t been eating too well or […]

Nutty & Buddy go to a Wototo concert

Nutty: How did you like the Watoto concert at church today Buddy? Buddy: Wow, those kids rocked! Did you see me? I was dancing on my haunches! Nutty: Agreed! I couldn’t keep still either and I am usually stoic. Buddy: What does stoic mean? Nutty: Well, I consider myself stiff like a robot, not able […]

Nutty & Buddy Week 3 Advent Story

Nutty: “Only 2 more weeks until Christmas Buddy.” Buddy: “Yippee!” Nutty: “Maybe for you it is a yippee. I am feeling overwhelmed, discouraged and distracted. Buddy: (looking totally puzzled) “I will be getting a new doggie bed, collar, bones, chewies, retractable leash, “ Nutty: “Oh my gosh, just shutty, I can’t take this. I have […]

Nutty & Buddy Get an Opportunity During Advent

Nutty: “How was the past week for you Buddy? Did you see any opportunities to prepare your heart for the coming of Jesus during this Advent season?” Buddy: (lazily laying on his cushy pillow) “No, everything was normal.” Nutty: “Hmm, I bet there were some opportunities and you may not have been aware? Buddy?” Buddy: […]

Roland, the Angel

Nothing jazzes me more than big God stories and this is a huge one! Dave is starting a new construction project. He needs some help with the physical labor. He has been trying different avenues of requesting help and there are some possibilities. God knows Dave needs help. When we, God’s children need help, all […]

Brandon’s Joy

Dave gets these CRU Arizona Prison Ministry newsletters monthly from our friend, Carey Lavender.  Carey is so open to seeking God’s will, watching where He is going and working alongside His plan. This God story is so beautiful.   Carey befriended Brandon, who also opened himself to be used by Jesus, to lead others to Himself. […]
