Glance My Way

"OPEN YOUR HANDS and your heart to receive this day as a precious gift from Me. I begin each day with a sunrise, announcing My radiant Presence. By the time you rise from your bed, I have already prepared the way before you. I eagerly await your first conscious thought. I rejoice when you glance My way." Sarah Young, Jesus Calling, June 25 I think back to my first schoolgirl crush. Fifth grade. Tall, surfer-dude Derek. He gave me a Hang Ten Decal. Well, after I hung around him incessantly, bumping him in line, tossing my hair over my shoulder, pumping my crossed leg. All so he would glance my way. Oh so much work I've invested in my lifetime - just so someone would glance my way! That school

Enough?

Oh how I struggle with "not enoughness!" You too? Read on as Lee Ann Zanon offers a fresh perspective on the good side of our struggle. Elisa Enough? By Lee Ann Zanon I recently visited a classroom in a new setting where I'll be teaching this fall. The instructor, a bright, articulate woman in her early 30s, seemed so relaxed and "hip" as she gave her lecture. Just the right amount of humor. Just the right technology. Just the right outfit. Just the right mix of facts and friendship. My first thought was, "What do I have to offer? I'll never be as good as she is." When I arrived home that evening and processed my feelings with my husband, he reminded me that I have more than 10 years of expe

Help!

Why is it so hard to ask for help? Or - go deeper now? Why is it so hard to say yes to help when it's offered even without us asking? A good question to consider by this week's blogger, Trina Pockett. Read on and see if you see yourself the way I see me. Elisa Help! By Trina Pockett Recently I was in the grocery store doing our weekly shopping. The store seemed excessively crowded as I weaved my cart through the aisles. After more than an hour, I reached the checkout line and began to place all 300 hundred of my items on the belt to be scanned. The bagger carefully loaded the groceries into the cart, balancing the bags like a Jenga game. As I was turning to leave, the he asked me, "Do you ne

Cathedral Dive

Has the majesty of God ever taken your breath away? Literally - have you ever needed to pause and gulp in air as you witnessed an unexpected moment of God's display in nature? Read on as Pam Teschner shares her daring dive into discovery. Elisa Cathedral Dive by Pam Teschner Hovering in scuba gear on the edge of a coral reef in Lanai's tropical waters, I peered into the mysterious blue depths below. It was exactly like the drop-off scene in the movie, Finding Nemo. The reef was alive with schools of beautiful angelfish, tangs and butterfly fish creating spectacular splashes of color. There was a moment of apprehension as I glanced up at the bottom of the boat from which I had just leapt. But

One Me and One You Equals More Than One

One of my life messages is SDWSC (She Did What She Could) from Mark 14:8 where Jesus said of Mary of Bethany's anointing of him, "She has done a beautiful thing ... She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body to prepare for my burial." Mary acted in a moment that would never be repeated and demonstrated her love for and belief in Jesus when he could receive it. I love that Jesus didn't compliment Mary saying she did all she could - telling us to do all as well - but rather he said she did what she could. One thing. There's another sentence in this passage (verse 7) that's echoing through me today: "The poor you will always have with you and you can help them anytime you want." Jesu
