Holy Week

Last year, I had planned to write a series "A Walk Through Holy Week" that took us on a journey of Jesus' last week before He died on the cross.  I only wrote a couple of posts, but I want to finish the series this year.

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday- the beginning of Holy Week.  Holy Week is the week preceding the celebration of Easter.  Holy Week is a special time for the Christian faith, it is a time to reflect and remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for our sins.  We have spent the last 40 days in the season of lent, and this week culminates the journey to the cross. 

4 years ago, my mom and I visited Israel and my view on the happenings of Scripture were forever changed.  I walked where Jesus walked, I saw the city over which He cried, I stood in the tomb where He may have lay.  This week, I’d like for you to walk with me through the Holy Land and see first hand where Jesus went and what He did the week before He died.  

Let's prepare our hearts and minds for the coming day of joy of Easter together as we walk through Holy Week.

Enjoying Spring

I am enjoying a lovely spring day today!  It feel so wonderful sitting on the porch basking in the sunshine, and reading my new Better Homes and Garden magazine that came in the mail today.

It has been a wonderful weekend so far- yesterday was my birthday and Jeremy and I took a trip to Spartanburg, SC to eat at Chipotle- my favorite!  We also grabbed a couple of blizzards at DQ to celebrate.  I got several sweet cards in the mail from friends, family, and loved ones.    I've been so blessed.  Days like today help you to appreciate the beauty of life

It's In the Works

I've been meeting and dreaming and planning and praying for this new ministry lately.  It's only in the baby stages and no where near launching, but I'm so excited for what the Lord has in store for this new women's ministry!  Would you join with me in prayer over the planning and prep needed to make it a success?

March Monthly Goals {Free Printable}

You can download a copy of my monthly goals worksheet for the month of March here.


I have been very pleased with how much writing out my monthly goals have helped me stay on track.  I can say that I have been able to accomplish some things that I doubt I would otherwise.  I am hoping to break down my monthly goals into weekly goals this month to keep me even more on track.

How are your yearly goals and resolutions coming?
