My Tulips Were Smarter Than Me – And They Don’t Even Have a Brain

Lift your eyes to the Light of Christ when you're in darkness. Psalm 123:1 via www.JeanWilund.comMy tulips were smarter than me. 

Which is kind of sad since they don’t even have a brain. [Read more…]

What if the Unforgivable Happened to You?


If a crooked cop — who falsely arrested you and landed you in prison for four years — got hired to work side-by-side with you, what would you do? 

If you’re Jameel McGee, you’d hang out with him and be his friend even though you lost everything when he sent you to prison. [Read more…]

I Miss Fluffy Facebook

I never thought I’d miss reading a Facebook post about what someone ate for breakfast or that they’re going to brush their teeth.

But with so much hate and despair spewing out on Facebook and on every place an opinion or thought can be spewed, I long for a mundane post that someone just scooped the poop for their pup.

I miss fluffy posts about kittens.

Society seems intent on ripping itself apart with venomous, hate-filled words and accusations slung far and wide.

Many are ready to declare all hope is gone.

 

Hate and despair are infecting America like a life-stealing cancer, spreading from coast to coast.

I refuse to give in to that mentality. [Read more…]

Magnify the Name of the Lord to Minimize Your Stress

Magnify the Name of the Lord to Minimize Your Stress and watch Music Video Magnify by Messenger via www.JeanWilund.comOh the Stress!

Every fall I find myself stressed out, and I’ve battled it for too embarrassingly long. I suffer from Competition Stress Anxiety.

I just made that term up, but it sounds about right.

If you’re not into sports, this post is still for you because we all have something in life that stresses us out.

It might be of minor importance like mine, as in the I Just Moved to a New Place and Have to Make New Friends Stress Anxiety or the I Have Too Many Things to Do and No Matter What I Do the List Only Gets Longer Stress Anxiety.

Or it might be quite serious like My Medical Bills are Piling Up With No End in Sight Stress Anxiety or worse I Just Lost My Child And Don’t Think I’ll Ever Be Happy Again Stress Anxiety.

Insert whatever your stressor is into the blank:  ________ Stress Anxiety.

The Red Thread: When Life Unravels, We Don’t Have To – Christ Holds Us Together

Watch & Read: The Red Thread: When Life Unravels, We Don't Have to. Christ Holds Us Together. (www.JeanWilund.com) Colossians 1:17

When Life Unravels

Does life ever hit you as hard as it does me, leaving you in a haze of confusion and fear?

Sometimes we get hit in the heart by the loss of a loved one or a broken relationship.

Other times fear plasters us straight between the eyes, like when the doctor uses the “C” word or the presidential election polls open — and close. ?

Still, other times we get hit from behind by a car. A literal car that shatters out our back windshield and leaves us unraveled.

I’ve lived through each of these moments, and I spoke about it recently.

Here’s my short video message. I hope it will bring you encouragement when your life unravels. [Read more…]
