God Loves Us More 

Wake up, are you too labeling yourself as a Spiritual Orphan. A spiritual orphan is someone that feels deprived of GOD’s protection or advantage. In some cases this can be a Christian that professes outwardly to know GOD as a Father; but often experiences internal contradictions? Maybe you personally understand. I did.


Let me paint the picture for you!

Are you trying to live like the Jones’? Some of us are trying so hard to be accepted by society that we will spend our last dime on material things that do not matter.


Have you isolated yourself from the church? Some of us say things like I am not religious I am spiritual so we neglect fellowshipping with the body of Christ. Note: we need to the body of Christ to help strengthen us.  


Do you feel an overwhelming sense of insecurity? Constant reassurance from others is simply an example of not having confidence in GOD’s love.


Are you focused on being performance based? This person is always working hard to outshine others. Additionally this person judges the weak performance of others!


So often we struggle to comprehend that GOD loves us. When I made the decision to seek GOD’s love first, I learned:

• God’s love is simple: I had been looking for something complicated and something big, in fact his love is simple. He asks us to simply go to him.

God’s love is strong: GOD gives us strength especially when we are weak. He will carry our burdens for us when we need him to. He will be the footprints in the sand for us.

God’s love abounds: His love is more than enough. Our cup will always overflow with his love, if we keep him first and in the center.

God’s love is endless: GOD will never stop loving you.


Here’s the message. Stop living as a Spiritual Orphan and allow GOD’s love to overtake you. He loves you more than you will ever know!

Hot Hot Hot ! 

No -I am not talking about the Texas Summer heat quickly approaching or something on HBO after dark. 

 I am talking Salsa Season! 

My family loves good salsa. And there is a difference in fresh and jar salsa. 
 The jar salsa just won’t cut it.

Sorry Pace- you are not my idea of salsa. 

Now I can handle Arriba Salsa in the jar if desperate… But only in a pinch. 

My hubby is a gardener. I am not. 

I do however like to cook up all the yumminess that his garden produces but when everything is producing rapidly the counters can get full quickly and it drives my old OCD tendencies a little crazy. 

So into the Vitamix went a large purple onion, 8 medium tomatoes, a big handful of parsley and cilantro, 2 yellow banana peppers and 2 sweet red peppers, a squeeze of lime juice, pink salt, a big spoon of chopped garlic and a pinch of cayenne with one long skinny Serrano pepper and ….. Ta da! Salsa is done!

Grab your favorite chips and here you go!

Doesn’t get much better in the ole South – where we like keeping things Hot Hot Hot!
