Intimacy – Saying Sorry!


I think that one of the hardest things to do in building true intimacy (and let’s face it, all of it can be pretty hard) is to say “I am sorry“. Today, in my gratitude journal, I actually stated that I am grateful for the gift of saying I am sorry.   I really don’t have an… Continue reading Intimacy – Saying Sorry!

MY WORD FOR THE YEAR – 2016


Every year, I choose a word that I want to focus on during that year.  I pray about it, and then go with where I feel God is leading me. For 2014, my word was “abundance“. And for good reason – I had a poor spirit. Abundance comes in so many forms – but mainly it… Continue reading MY WORD FOR THE YEAR – 2016

The 52 Week Challenge –Week 9


Ephesians 4:21-24 (NIV): …when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

The 52 Week Challenge –Week 8

The 52 Week Challenge –Week 5


Giving myself permission to be a sexually charged wife is hard. It is not something that my brain seems able to compute or even register. However, what has happened this last week is that I can feel I am becoming more aware. More aware of when last, how long ago, the silences, the absence – all of that is filtering through into my consciousness.

Day 6:  Ministry of Reconciliation


Today is day 6 of Jennifer Smith’s 30 day devotional, Wife After God. I find it more than a mere coincidence that this is today’s reading.  Because, you see, while watching The Fixer last night (known as Scandal overseas), Fitz is fighting with Mellie about how she abandoned their sex life and made him think… Continue reading Day 6:  Ministry of Reconciliation

Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole


Last night I lay in bed and I could not sleep.  I was warm and snug and felt safe, so I didn’t want to particularly get out of bed or anything, but as I lay there, I thought of Abigail’s post from yesterday. And I said, in response to her post, how I am so… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole
