Looking Forward With Optimism. A Thankful Heart!

This is a guest post written by my younger sister, Tiffany, who has a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. Tiffany has shared regular guest posts on my blog since February 2015. The purpose of her posts is to raise awareness of what it’s like to live with mental illness. I’m also hoping the posts will help readers recognize that…

Washing Dishes with Ginny Owens

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”  Ecclesiastes 3:11  God knows our hearts intimately. He created us, made us, fashioned us fine. He knows what makes us tick, knows what makes us cry. He knows…

The Last Thank You

Dear You: Thank you. What more can I say? Sure, we’ve crossed paths a few times. But truth be told, I don’t know you all that well. We’re mere strangers in the daily reality called life. Heck, you’re nearly my neighbor, but for some reason, our paths primarily cross online, in this place, my blog. When you approached and hugged…

Two Years. Four Pivotal People. A Belated Blogaversary Celebration!

July 30, 2014, marked Divine In The Daily’s two-year blogaversary! The day came and went without any fanfare, but I most certainly did not forget the occasion. After all, how could I forget the day I finally started getting all those words out of my head and onto the screen so they could be useful to someone…

    Amy, Thanks for the wonderful comments. We have only met in person once but through your blog I came to know you much better. I was surprised an honored to when you asked me to be a part of the prayer team for you and the blog. I really enjoy reading and absorbing each blog entry you post… I don’t understand it all of the time, but I’m a man and maybe i’m not supposed to always “get it”. Mostly you provide us all with some very thought provoking subject matter that really touches both the mind and the heart. With God’s grace I will continue to provide meaningful comment, prayer, and a little humor too. ReplyCancel

    Coming from a non-wordsmith, I’m always impressed with how your thoughts just flow for us readers. Brenda nailed it, you are “vulnerable, relevant, and honest” and I enjoy your writings. I’ve been encouraged to begin a blog but honestly it overwhelms me personally, so kudos to you for accomplishing your goal! ((hugs))ReplyCancel

    I remember that day well Amy. I was hesitant to call because I didn’t know you well, but felt so strongly led to pray for you and your blog. I am learning to obey the Holy Spirit’s nudges, and glad I did in this case 🙂 Your blog is important. You are vulnerable, relevant and honest, and SO MANY of us can relate to the content. I feel honored to have been even a very small part of this! You are an inspiration to many including me.ReplyCancel

    I am beyond humbled by your words! You are a gift to me! Once again I am amazed at how careful you are to show me, those around you, how precious each & every interaction they have with you is etched on your very own heart! I’m beyond excited for what God is doing here at your blog but even more excited to see the Lord moving in your heart and life! ReplyCancel

What I Learned From My Dad’s Retirement Party Post

The fact that my dad’s lifelong career as band director was never celebrated properly bothered me for eight years straight. So one week ago, I took a leap of faith and wrote a post I hoped would rectify that wrong. When I hit publish, I had no idea what the outcome would be, but I did it anyway. Today, I’m happy to…
