saving a friend

i have been a little sad lately. without direction. seeking answers.

i have been overwhelmed with too many decisions. too many distractions. too much strife.

i have lacked focus. questioned motives. sought peace.

i have been crowded. criticized. burdened.

and yet through it all, i have been blessed.

that is the hand of God right there. taking a girl i haven't seen in over 20 years and using her to remind me that i matter. that He sees me. that He loves me.  

i am AMAZED - completely and totally- at God's goodness. i am humbled at His mercy.

i am in awe of His grace.

He found me right where i am and He reminded me that i am not alone. 

but that's God isn't it? showing up when we least expect it. when we least deserve it.

but when we need it the most.

and saving us right in the middle of a storm.

i am so thankful.

i am filled with joy.

i am blessed.

if God has placed someone on your heart today, reach out to them. encourage them. love them.

in doing so you are pleasing Him. 

you are doing His work.

you are saving the world.

thank you Tere for saving me today. 

you are loved. 




  1. You are a wonderful person, Colleen. I am struck here at how we touch so many people in varying in yours, and me in mine.
    God Bless,

    1. and how our worlds, our words and our pain connects us in ways that only God could orchestrate and use. like a friend of mine likes to say...nothing is wasted.

      i love you.

God took my mom

God took my mom.  When I was 6 years old and knew nothing about life.  Before I had a chance to know her. Long before I would have a way to remember her.  He took her.  And I grew up never having a mother. If God can see all, if God knows all, if God is in control...did He not think I would want a mom?  Or deserved a mom?  Or needed a mom?  Did He not care how painful it would be? Did He not care how awful it would feel?  Did He not care about me at all? Because I thought when you loved someone you wanted the best for them. You sacrificed for them. You made sure you did everything in your power to help them. And it didn't feel like God helped me. It felt like He punished me. And I had no idea why.  I just knew I hated it.  And there were moments that I hated Him.  When you're little, no one comes up to you and tells you it's going to be ok.  Most don't come up to you at all.  Because people shrink from talking about death.  They don't know what to say so they don

A Prayer for our Nation

Father, I pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, for all who are in authority in this nation. I ask for Godly counsel and wisdom for the President and his Cabinet, Chief Justice, Associate Justices of the Supreme Court and all judges across this land.  Thank you for restoring to our nation righteous judges who hear Your voice and adhere to Your Word (Isaiah 1:26). We lift up the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, members of the Senate and House of Representatives, and all other leaders at every level of our government to receive the wisdom of God, to act in obedience to that wisdom, and for the power of God to flow in their lives.  I declare that they hear and obey Your voice, Lord, and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. Lord, I pray that righteousness be manifest in the hearts of all in authority in our nation, and that they seek after You with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength. In the Name of Jesus.  Amen. (Prayer from Kenneth Copela
