A Bridesmaid

Bridesmaid:  a woman who is an attendant of a bride… My first is getting married.  Everything that is going on is “new to me” as mother-of-the-bride.  I’ve been a bridesmaid for many weddings, but never on the mother-of-the-bride side of watching bridesmaids love on my daughter.  I observed careful care of helping her with her…

God created you…

Today is a very special day of celebrating a friend’s pregnancy and soon-to-be with us baby girl. I’ve reflected on all the verses that God has given us to remind us that He created us. He loves us. He has a plan for us. What is so amazing is that He foreknew us, and, in advance,…

Metzger 801 N. 23rd Street Richmond, VA

To spice up our marriage, my husband and I have decided to make date nights an adventure.  We go to unique places and try something new and fun.  We fancy ourselves food critics and have conversations about the place surrounding its history, food, and atmosphere. The story behind the entrepreneur has always intrigued me.  I…

God’s Love Language

God’s love language is worship. Yesterday, Pastor Stan, shared this message at Cloverhill Assembly of God.  If you want to show God just how much you love Him–worship!  God is an emotional God.  The Bible shares that God can be angry, show pity, be merciful, take delight,……  God is not a computer or machine, or…

Because He Lives!

Keep it moving. Life is filled with twists and turns and unexpected surprises. My mom’s favorite quotes for me ring true Bloom where you are planted. Face the challenge “line upon line”. When you have a day in which every category of your life seems to be a cacophony of questions and unresolved issues, you…

A loving heart is the truest wisdom (Charles Dickens)

This post will be short and simple in nature; yet, it has the most profound meaning to me personally.  Yesterday, after managing “much” as a mom, student, and school social worker, I felt the typical robotic scatter brain feelings. Being a robot with scatter brain is not a good thing. To overcome, my Jesus-talk began…

Forerunners

Forerunner a person or thing that precedes the coming or development of someone or something else. John the Baptist, named by God, and the forerunner of Jesus, devoted his life to preparing the way of the Lord. The child will be named John. When God names a child, that child is especially significant in God’s…

Beauregard’s Thai Room

Beauregard’s is located on 103 East Cary Street in Richmond, Virginia. The historical building was originally the Munford Home, circa 1870.  This authentic and beautiful Thai cuisine restaurant has an upstairs that seats 150 for lunch and dinner.  What we love most is the outdoor seating that is romantically decorated with street lights, flowers, and…

Shallowbag Bay Marina (SBM) is a 75-slip marina located just off the inter-coastal waterway in North Carolina’s wonderful Outer Banks. The Outer Banks recreational area is one of the fastest growing coastal areas in the United States. The…

Thank you for the water…

  My God you have blessed our family beyond measure.  I could never remember every detail of my life in which you provided, protected, and gave in abundance.  Jesus, I’m not talking about material things, although I’ve never lacked.  I’m grateful for the things money can’t buy and the story between the lines of my…
