Letting go

Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

I was driving the other day and noticed a piece of land that had been leveled off.  I was wondering what was going to be built on the site… a convenience store, apartments? Well, the sign has now gone up. Storage buildings. My brother was with me and I exclaimed… “All we need is another [...]


Believing Without Seeing

by Teresa Smith on July 14, 2014

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I have such a hard time when it comes to faith. Faith is defined as ‘Confidence or Trust in a Person, Thing or Idea. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.’  The Bible says… Faith is the confidence that what we hope for [...]


No Looking Back

by Teresa Smith on June 23, 2014

OK… I admit it. I did a bad thing while driving the other day. No, I wasn’t putting on makeup, I wasn’t texting… none of that. I was driving down a road near my home and saw a sign posted the opposite direction of how I was driving. I looked in my rear view mirror, [...]


Life is All About Perspectives

by Teresa Smith on May 12, 2014

Life is all about perspectives. Well, at least that’s my perspective. I remember years ago in my first job. I had a lot of difficulty with a co-worker. We had different styles of doing our jobs. Our offices were next to each other and you could easily hear through the walls. I reported to several [...]


Where’s Your Focus

by Teresa Smith on May 5, 2014

I was reading a devotional the other day and it was describing how the angels had told Lot to take his wife and children and run from Sodom & Gomorrah and don’t look back. I read of how Lot’s wife looked back and became a pillar of salt. I don’t know if anyone will ever [...]

It’s been a long, cold winter here. I think we’re finally done, but you never know. Just when you got used to the golden sunshine, the warm temps and the beautiful flowers… it snowed again. We’ve actually had two separate incidents with blooms bursting and frigid temps. I covered my cherry tree that was planted [...]


Taking For Granted

by Teresa Smith on February 24, 2014

This week has been a busy week. Busy at work, busy at home. I found myself getting to bed late and looking forward to the weekend, just to possibly catch up on my sleep. We’ve had so many cold or rainy weekends this year, it was nice to have two gorgeous, warm days this weekend. [...]


Give Yourself Permission

by Teresa Smith on October 28, 2013

This morning I had my hands full. I was trying to get out of the house, but couldn’t get out the door with so much in my arms. I’m not sure how long I tried holding onto everything and freeing up a finger or two to open the door, but it just wasn’t working.  I [...]


What Freedom Are You Searching For

by Teresa Smith on July 1, 2013

This week, here in the United States most of us will be celebrating Independence Day. Over 230 years ago, the United States declared their independence, their freedom, from Great Britain. This year, I invite you to not only celebrate our country’s independence, but I would ask you to meditate on what freedom you are searching [...]
