Mother’s Day Poem Challenge

Last week, I challenged you to send me a Mother’s Day poem. Here’s the one I selected to print in today’s blog:
The Gift
by Victor Bare II
My Lord, my Savior, my Friend indeed
On a cross out of love he hung for me
The selfless act portrayed on that tree
Only a part was this His love for me
Before I was born He knew it was she
Whom through He could show His love for me
A mother, a woman, a friend is she
All these things is she to me
To see His love and boundless grace
I need only look at her beautiful face
To feel His comfort when times are hard
He holds me close in her loving arms
Examples of love and wisdom that is He
Displayed in her life for me to see
No greater love could there ever be
Than that of my God for me
Shown in the Gift, my mother, He gave to me
Thank you, Victor, for sharing your poem.
Happy Mother’s Day to every mom and grandmom!

Ten Simple Ways to Add Balance to Your Days

October 14, 2013

Ten Simple Ways

Seasons of life run their course, and no matter who we are or at what stage we’re at, we often see balance as an impossibility.

You can focus on a project you love and not even miss eating. You may procrastinate your unpleasant tasks or bow to the tyranny of the urgent. You can help others reach their dreams but never realize your own. You may even teach about intimacy with God but never spend time with Him yourself. Do any of those fit you?

We can usually find an excuse to fit every situation: It’s the kids, my boss, my husband or wife.  It’s my health, my editor, or my age in life. Believe me, I’ve offered my share of excuses along with you. But I long for this thing called balance, don’t you?

Keeping Life in Balance

Keeping life balanced is not easy for anyone, but here are 10 simple ways that help me daily. Maybe it will give you a good place to start:  Read more
