Chasing Daylight

Chasing Daylight. Is it an awesome Life Group study or every day life? Yes. It is not only the awesome Bible study that we are doing in our life group, but also the story of my life! I feel like my life goes round and round…from daylight to daylight.

We talked in our life group about our lives being mundane. I don’t think my life is mundane, mainly because I am SO busy. However, the statement was made, “Right behind the mundane is the miraculous .” While I don’t think my life is mundane, I’m not so sure about the miraculous either. What I am sure of, is that I most certainly want something in my life to be miraculous. Not in the future, not in a few years, not even soon. But right now, today, this week, and the next, and the next, and the next… As much as I want God to use me to miraculously reach the world, my neighborhood, the children in Kids Life, anyone and everyone I meet, I am feeling a much stronger calling to be miraculous much closer to home. Actually AT home. To find the miraculous in being the best wife I can be and to find the miraculous in being the best mother I can be. And believe me, it does take to miraculous!  Maybe for me, I don’t need to look for the miaculous behind the mundane, but behind the busy.


  1. You guys are right at home in Florida. It sounds like you hit the ground running and that blesses me. We still miss you here in Wilson but we know God has be in control.

  2. The miraculous for me is that God brought you into my son’s life; you are the answer to our prayer that began 40 yrs & 9 mos ago …and what a wonderful answer you are!

  3. I love your blog page, colorful and very femenine. Now I know where you are at on Sundays, I was wondenring where Pastor’s Paul wife was. May God bless you for working with the little ones. Evelin-Ritzcrackah’s mom. 🙂

  4. Hi Annie we have not met as of yet, but I have heard great things about you and the family. You might have read my posts on Paul’s page (really giving him a hard time sounds better)I am really happy that you are all here, and pray that we will meet soon.

    Much love and many blessings,


  5. This sounds like the beginning of a really good book. Something along the lines of “Finding the Miraculous in Your Laundry!”
