Giving Away “Giving”

I am a giver.Years ago, when Pastor Peg walked us through The 5 Love Languages book at church, it verified what I already knew: giving is my love language. It’s my favorite way to express love to the people in my life. It’s not about things, yet I love to...... More »

Time for something new

I don’t make a lot of changes with the new year. I consider resolutions, but don’t actually set them, because I feel like I’m just setting myself up for failure. I don’t do well at sticking to something for a long time. Self-discipline is an area in which I...... More »

Don’t do it

Don’t do it

Don’t ever fall into the trap of believing that God won’t come through because of your current (or past) failings. Or that what you have to offer isn’t enough. ~Praying Upside Down Remember this: Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Nothing. Romans 8:38-39 in the NIV...... More »

Giving it all away

Giving it all away

I love reading what people have to say about Praying Upside Down. Granted, so far I’ve been lucky and just had a couple slightly negative comments (all within otherwise excellent reviews). When I get my first really bad one, one of you will need to show up with chocolate or invite me...... More »
