Mom Monday! What makes for a perfect day for you?

Someone wrote in and said when my little son sneaks out of bed for an extra hug.

Francesca Batistelli‘s song He Knows My Name is now playing on Family Life Radio. Hear the story behind the song…


Word for Your Life
Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them – not because you must, but because you are willing... ~ 1 Peter 5:2

A Year with Aslan from The Last Battle

Have you ever been frightened even after a victory?

As Eustace & the others are approaching a castle, the chief soldier asks for the password. Tirian draws his sword & says “This is my password” .. & then it’s on.

Before you know it the steel is flying, & Eustace doesn’t have time to think or remember any of what had been taught him – he just slashed wildly & found, to his great surprise, that he had won. & though it was a great relief, it was also rather frightening.

The lesson for us is that we do our best to prepare for life everyday – one day at a time – & trust that God is in our tomorrows before we are.

Just like when you fill up your gas tank, you can choose regular or premium – you have a choice what you fill up your spiritual tank with.


Proverbs 4:7 says ..


Wisdom is supreme – Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

The price of acquiring that may mean you don’t get to always do what YOU want to do – it’ll cost you your time, your priorities, even your relationships, but it’s value in keeping your spiritual engine running is worth every penny.


AW Tozer ~ Set of the Sail

Among the enemies to devotion, none is so harmful as distractions. Whatever excites the curiosity, scatters the thoughts, disquiets the heart, or shifts our focus from the kingdom of God within us to the world around us is a distraction.  The remedy .. is the same now as it was in simpler times – prayer, meditation & the cultivation of the inner life. Distractions must be conquered or they will conquer us. So let us cultivate simplicity .. & want fewer things.

Francis Chan ~ Multiply

We gravitate toward solutions that are quick & easy. When it comes to helping people, we often address the surface level of the problem but never get down to the heart of the matter. It’s not that Christians are uncaring. Very often, we really do want to help the people around us however we can, but we get so focused on finding a quick solution to the external behavior that we overlook the real problem.

David Roper ~ A Heart of Wisdom

A fresh start would amount to nothing without the experience necessary to make the right adjustments.  Lacking the knowledge we’ve gained, we’d make the same mistakes over again.  But grace means our sins are gone forever – replaced by love.  Grace means God has given us the resources to make a new beginning.  So the question is not “Can I make it?  Am I able?”  The question is “Can He transform me?”

Oswald Chambers ~ My Utmost for His Highest

We must learn to give God elbow room.  We plan & predict that this or that will happen, but we forget to make room for God to come in as He chooses.  Don’t look for God to come in a particular way – but do look for Him.

Phillip Yancey ~ What’s So Amazing About Grace?

The ladder of power reaches up, the ladder of grace reaches down.

Matt Redman ~ Facedown

We live as worshipers of the otherly in a culture of the ordinary .. it’s only as we breathe in more of the wonders of God that we can breathe out a fuller response to him.

Donald Miller ~ Blue Like Jazz


What I believe is not what I say I believe .. What I believe is what I do.  Deep belief costs something.  If I really believed something, I’d have to do something about it.

The pairs of brothers that make up Citizen Way may be singing about God from the stage, but watch out if you get on their radar for a practical joke.
