My New Blog Home…

…For real & for a while this time.🙂 (I’ve had a few other brief blogs in-between and one that has been ongoing, but private.)

Well, I just started a new public blog on May 5th, 2011 (The National Day of Prayer). The first post is part of the blogging meme called “Thankful Thursday.” My current “home” is @: Journaling For Jesus. Please visit and leave me a comment! I look forward to greeting you there.

Blessings, Janet

New Vision…New Blog

Well, I know I’ve taken several months off from blogging.  I’ve still been around on the Internet…keeping up with friends and family through Facebook.  However, I realized the other day, that I really do miss blogging.  I’ve determined it has served an important purpose for me…it’s even been a kind of therapy for me in the past.

Anyway, a lot of changes have occurred for my family and I in the last few months or so.  As a result, even though I want to get back to blogging, I sense that I need to start afresh.  This blog covers one season in my life, and so as I begin another phase, it seems appropriate to start a new blog.

I also believe that God has begun to show me a new direction and vision.  So from now on, I will be posting at: “Receive Your Sight” With this renewed vision, God is still supplying the daily provisions (and revisions) for this spiritual journey.

Yesterday, my sister-in-law, Lisa and I had a "scare." Our kids were through with their lessons for the day, and we were sitting talking. While the kids were playing in Sarah's room, I suddenly noticed my loyal dog, Gracie, barking outside. I immediately ran to the back door because I knew Gracie hardly ever barks unless she senses potential danger–usually in the form of a snake!! When I peered through the glass of the back door, I saw Gracie st … Read More

Sharing The Good News (via Daily Provision)

Sharing The Good News Sometimes I start to wonder if I'm not bold enough in my witness to others.  However, I'm quickly reminded that I MUST be led by the Holy Spirit, and I cannot force such things.  In my personal relationships, God will lead me…He will give me the words to say at the right time.  I find when I try to "speed things up" and "take matters into my own hands," that I can easily become self-righteous or at least come across that way.  The words won't c … Read More

Christmas Memories

Rejoice! Rejoice!

I sit here in the stillness, gazing at the white lights on the Christmas tree… I’m filled w/ peace, hope, joy, and wonder. The song that comes to my heart is: “Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel…Shall come to thee, O Israel.”
