A Mother’s Day Tribute

By Peg Arnold | May 7, 2021

It was to release her to the freedom of heaven,
To the great love of God and all who had gone before.

When we are struggling, it feels like we are walking in a constant darkness, unable to see or embrace the light.

My demands, obligations, and schedule were so tight, that when a detour or an accident caused a delay, I found myself annoyed and frustrated. Ironically, God often used those inconveniences to get me to slow down, be still, and draw me near to Him.

Distraction of Disturbance

disruptions are often an opportunity to recognize and possibly demonstrate God’s love. It may not be convenient, but in Christ’s ministry, hardly any of His interactions were convenient.

Distraction of Disruption

God is on that path in front going before me. If I let disruptions distract me, I’ll wander off the road and end up self-absorbed.

Distraction of the Dawn

By Peg Arnold | April 17, 2020

Sometimes our burdens blind our ability to experience the peace and joy that the Lord wants to give us.
