For today’s song share, I asked the girls to pick a couple of songs out for me. Audrey picked “As the Deer”. She said it is her favorite song in the whole wide world. She has this thing for songs in minor keys. 😏 Esther chose “Shout Hallelujah”. It is one of her favorites. I’m… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #6
We watched the movie Jesus Revolution Sunday evening. I know there have been different opinions on it, but I really enjoyed it. It makes you reexamine yourself as a Christian and what it means to reach out to people who haven’t found Jesus yet. I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes from… Continue reading Jesus Revolution
Yesterday’s communion talk prompt said:Ephesians 4; Romans 12God has given us different gifts and talents through the Holy Spirit. How do our different roles in the body relate to communion? So first off, what does Ephesians 4 say? It starts out by Paul telling the Ephesians he wants them to “lead a life worthy of… Continue reading One Body
I was sitting here enjoying the sunshine trying to decide what to use for today’s song share. Praying over what is on my heart and also what might help others. My friend Daniel wrote a blog post this morning about spending intentional time with God on his hiking trips. I, too, like to spend time… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #5
I love to grab a snack and a drink and go outside in the sunshine or, if the weather’s bad, in my office and watch a movie or read a book or listen to music and crochet. Because it’s comfortable. It’s my own space, doing what I enjoy. We like to do things and follow… Continue reading Let’s get (Un)Comfortable
The slide for this week’s communion talk was: Matt 12:7; Hosea 6:6“I desire mercy, not sacrifice.”How can these verses relate to communion? Our prompt usually reflects the day’s sermon in some way, and this one was no different, as the sermon topic was “Transformational Worship”. Also, as the Lord usually throws all things at me… Continue reading Mercy, Not Sacrifice
I’ve had several people on my mind who have been/are fighting various battles, whether they are sin-related, illness/injury related, or just life-in-general related. So the songs that have been on my mind this week are kind of reflecting that. The one I have literally woken up singing in my brain every morning this week is… Continue reading Saturday Song Share #4
I used to work with Jeremy on the job site a good bit when he was short-handed. I actually enjoy going with him and shooting grade, raking ditches, and laying Infiltrator. There is nothing like the tired after installing a septic system in the hot Alabama July sun. Nowadays, however, my job is mostly keeping… Continue reading The Family that Works Together…
A few months ago, I reconnected with Jeremy’s cousin, Tenia. I say reconnected because although we were family and neighbors, we had grown apart and taken different directions in life. In the past 3 or so months, our paths have converged once more, and our friendship has been taken to a whole new level. She… Continue reading Lydia’s House
Sometimes we have to be “selfish” in order to be “selfless”. Let me explain, with a couple of examples. Last night, Jeremy and I were praying together. After, he said he felt like it was a selfish prayer because he didn’t stray away from praying for our family. But I think that’s okay sometimes. Our… Continue reading Selfish?
With Easter right on top of us, I wanted to share two of my favorite songs to listen to concerning the resurrection. The give me chills and tears every time I listen to them. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
I don’t know if you’ve picked up on this, but we’re busy people over here at the Johnson house. There is always somewhere to be or something that has to be done. Last week was a particularly long and busy week. Not a bad week, just long and busy. So with nothing on our calendar… Continue reading A Day of Rest and Renewal
