A Miracle Perhaps???

So my friends, I issued a kissing challenge on Monday. And I arrived home from traveling on Sunday and found myself with a giant cold. Achew! So there wasn’t any kissing happening around here. Bummer. I hope I start to feel better next week. And I have another challenge on Monday that will bring a smile to your face as it’s a challenge in our faith walk as well as our marriages. But today, I want to share with you a couple of fun stories from my travels this past weekend. Sometimes I’m simply overwhelmed by God’s favor. He delights showing up in the little things. I shared this particular adventure on my Facebook Page last Thursday. Here is what happened. I was traveling to Topeka, Kansas as my mother was being honored by Washburn University as an Alumni Fellow for 2013. It was a big deal and I’m glad... Read more →

On Our Way - Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson

Hi SUMites! Wow, reading the testimonies from Monday’s post just stirs my faith. Thank you for taking time to share your faith walk with God’s people. When we share the faithfulness of God and testimonies in our lives with others, two things happen. One, God receives glory. Two, it bolsters our faith. And the testimony of one can become the reality for another believer. Not sure how God does that but it’s how His Kingdom rolls!!! Anyhoo, today Dineen and I are on our way to Colorado Springs, Colorado. We are meeting up at the Denver airport and then spending the next two days together. I can’t wait. We are going to have an amazing time and we plan to spend some time praying for all of you. We truly love you, Sumites, and pray for your lives. On Thursday we are headed to the studios of Family Talk with... Read more →

Effective Spiritual Warfare in an Unequally Yoked Home

So, ummm, yep, nothing like an eight hour car ride to challenge a marriage. Yep, we traveled last week. In the car. With two teenagers, in heavy, holiday traffic in a car that barely seats four. First to visit four colleges in three days then on to northern California with my husband’s family. Finally, a long drive home in demanding and stressful conditions. Are we nuts? It’s interesting how a change of venue compounded by stress of travel and family expectations will reveal the good, bad, and ugly in a relationship. Overall our week went well but…… there was this one day. It was day three after a long college tour and we had another six hours on the road before we reached our next destination. And now as I’m home and can think back over the day, I’m able to view it through the eyes of the Holy Spirit.... Read more →

And She Treasured Them In Her Heart

Good Monday Morning Everyone: I'm home. Aaaaah, home sweet home. Most of you know that the Donovan Clan took a vacation to beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. Our next door neighbors, here in California, invited us up for a week of R&R. I'm exhausted. But what a blast. Door County is beautiful. I didn't know God could out do Himself in the creation department. Wrong again. Take a look. Here are some photos of several old barns and the silos I discovered while driving around. I'm fascinated by these old barns. I'm told they are slowly disappearing because repair expense for a wooden barn far exceeds the cost to construct a new aluminum barn which holds up better in their frigid winters. Tragic really. I love them. Anyhoo, on our last evening I witnesses a full orange moon rise over the lake. It was as if God said, "Lynn, this is... Read more →

What a Twitter?

Do you tweet? Well sometimes I get over to my TweetDeck and try to keep up with all the incessant yet compelling whirs and whistles. I will open up the Twitter deck and the next thing I know I find myself lost in a vortex of crazy conversations, hash tags I don’t understand and giggles for more than an hour. Sheesh. Time flies when you are twittering with your friends *grin.* Well a few days ago, I received a private message from a Twitterer (is that a word?). This obscure Twit was calling me out on something I said in a post that I shared on the Deck. They were anxious to correct my "flawed" thinking regarding this scripture passage: 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? The Twit(er) responded... Read more →
