Running the Race

When I was going through breast cancer in 2010, so many of you were praying for me that I could feel the strength that came in countless ways through that community of support. Why then have I not asked for the same support through difficult times that have hit since then? I believe the enemy tries hard […]

On Electing Leaders – or Statesmen(persons)

With the upcoming election dominating the news, I find myself intrigued, troubled and yet strangely at peace. Intrigued by the pure bizarreness of it all. Troubled by the divisiveness, negativity and polarity. At peace knowing (as a history buff) that things have been this ugly many times before – the 1800 and following elections were […]

She Walks Best at a Different Pace

  Not since spring have I left for a walk with Piper in long sleeves (me, not her), but this beautiful morning called for them with temperatures in the 50’s. Piper loves our walks and as she was deprived of yesterday’s because of Amy being in Colorado and Sara and I having packed schedules, she […]

A Step of Faith, Across the Ocean to Africa!

  Our apologies if we may have reached out directly and this is repetitive, but we are taking this opportunity to let our blog followers know about another step of faith…. This summer Ross, Sara and I along with roughly 15 others from WoodsEdge Community Church have an incredible opportunity to take a 17-day mission trip […]

Love They Self

In order to receive good things, we must believe we are worthy of good things. If we don’t, we subconsciously reject the gift as it works its way down to our hearts and finds the doors locked. The gift may be beautiful, sincere and true – a complement; a lesson designed to impart truth and goodness; […]

Arise

Arise oh weary one. Arise and follow Me into Life. Trust in Me, lean in on Me from the epicenter of your heart. I will bring peace in unearthly ways.  Free the essence of your humanity. Learn to move to the heartbeat I provide. There is always hope. Some must look harder for it than […]

A Bowl of Cherries

An eye-catching bowl of cherry tomatoes has been sitting on my kitchen counter for over a week. Deep, bold, shiny and red. Day after day they sit there to remind me to snack well. Each passing day, they continue to sit. My habit of late has been to pass through the kitchen, open the freezer […]

God is making all things new, not all new things!

Revelation 21:5 says, And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new ” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Isaiah 65:17 says, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.” […]

Shouldn’t “Scrooge” Be a Compliment?

The annual Hauser family tradition of attending a live Christmas Carol was fulfilled once again this week at a small, intimate local theater with a traditional rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale. Despite only six cast members, the second greatest (in my humble opinion) redemption story of all time was magnificently played out. Once […]

Trust Your Master

From the M4M Facebook page – wanted to share on our blog too!: Tom is in Africa for 3 weeks so thought I would put down some thoughts here if I can’t actually post! Savor the blessings of today: Before my quick morning routine of running a cordless vac over my tile flooring, removing the […]
