‘Then the woman left her water jar, went into town, and told the men, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah? ” (John 4:28, 29 HCSB)

Jesus confronts us at the most unsuspecting times; have you noticed? My man is recovering from major surgery. He is a pill-a-phobe and hates, hates, hates taking pills. These pain pills have done a number on him, so he has quit taking them except for the bare minimum.
Now, I’m trying to be a decent nurse, and have found that I am the world’s worst at it. He hurts and I’m thinkin’ – ‘dude, enough, get over it’. (Ooo, did I really just admit that to you?!) (confronting truth gets ugly sometimes, huh? Like cold water thrown in your face).
And, you know what Father God does with that kind of selfish attitude? He keeps putting me down on my knees, every day, in front of my healing man, to redress his wound. And, each time I am bending, God uses that low place to trigger floods of how lucky and blessed I am and how precious every life is to Him. Every life. Every one. Your’s too.
Sometimes, we don’t like our lives sliced open and laid bare where we are forced to confront our ugly places.
It happens every day Dearheart …. all around us … the Almighty reminds us that life is not defined by our weaknesses and failures, but by the quality of a spirit that is willing to be refreshed by His abiding presence.
Make it a watchful day Beautiful One.

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
