It’s hard waiting sometimes, isn’t it?

The Godly Chic Diaries


You know that moment when you’re just minding your own business + suddenly you get a phone call or e-mail that the opportunity you’ve been waiting for has finally come through? Or that split second when you’re bolted over with an idea or inspiration that stops you dead in your tracks? There is nothing more exhilarating than these magical instances when everything you’ve ever done and all of your experiences and abilities meld together in one epiphany and you just know, on a molecular level that your life will never be the same again! And you smile.😊

God moves in His timing, not yours. He is never late, but He is usually not early either. He is often the God of the midnight hour. He sometimes waits until the last second before He gives you what you need. Before…

What’s In A Name?

Penny Wilson Writes


Here a Penny, there a Penny…..

I was born with the name of Penny Nichols.  Not an easy name to live up to.  When I was in my teens and 20’s, I went by “Six Cents”.

The name Penny (NOT Penelope) was hard enough.  I heard all the usual taunts as a kid.  Henny Penny, Bad Penny.  My brothers bastardized the name Penelope and called me that, making the “o” long and the last “e” silent.  I hated it.  Then there was that stupid cartoon on when I was a kid called “Penelope PitStop”.  Kids called me that sometimes too.

Then there are those that try to be cute.  “A Penny for your thoughts!”  or “Penny’s from heaven!”

I always wanted to be called something pretty; something exotic.  I tried for a long time to get my childhood friends to call me Eva.  But it didn’t stick.

I had…

Hanging the Earth on Nothing

Earlier this week I came across this and decided it would be a perfect Faith Filled Friday blog. The sentences in italics are the notes at the bottom of the page in my Bible, KJV. I missed the sarcasm in verses 1-4 and had to go back to read them again. It’s almost the way Shakespeare would have said it. The phrase I like the best is in verse 7, hanged the earth upon nothing. I pictured it like hanging a Christmas ornament on a tree, only sans tree and wire hoop. Verse 14 ends with a powerful thought. There’s a lot we don’t know and don’t understand. I’m satisfied with waiting until I get to heaven to find out. ~ Connie

Job 26:1-14 – Job’s Third Reply to Bildad

But Job answered and said, How hast thou helped him that is without power? How did you save the arm that hath no strength?
How have you counseled him that has no wisdom? And how have you plentifully declared the thing as it is?
To whom have you uttered words? And whose spirit came from thee?
vs 1-4 Job sarcastically accuses Bildad of not having an original thought in his head!
Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
Hell is naked before him, and destruction has no covering.
vs 6 destruction: Heb., Abaddon, the place of destruction, synonym for Sheol.
He stretched out the north over the empty place, and hanged the earth upon nothing.
vs 7 A remarkable description of what we now know to be a scientifically accurate description of the earth.
He bound up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.
vs 8 May be a reference to the same state described in Genesis 1:7
He held back the face of his throne, and spread his cloud upon it.
vs 9 throne: the meaning is that God veils the heavens with clouds.
He encompassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.
He divided the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smote through the proud.
By his spirit he has garnished the heavens; his hand has formed the crooked serpent.
vs 13 By his spirit: i.e., the wind blew away the storm clouds so that the heavens are garnished (lit., fair)
vs 5-13 An acknowledgment of the sovereignty of God over the various aspects of the universe.
Lo, these are parts of his ways; but how little a portion is heard of him? But the thunder of his power who can understand?
vs 14 Job’s magnificent conclusion is: How much knowledge of God there is beyond what we can see and hear.

Do You Sell Miracles?|آیا معجزه می فروشید؟

A Voice from Iran

A little girl went to a pharmacy and said: “Sorry, do you sell  miracles?”


The pharmacist smiled and replied: “We don’t sell miracles my dear.”


The little girl said: “But my brother is dying. Something is growing inside his head. My father said he needs a miracle. Then the little girl showed some coins to the pharmacist.


A man who heard the conversation tapped on the little girl’s shoulder and said: “How much do you have my dear?”

The little girl showed her coins.

The pharmacist waved at the man like they were friends.

The man smiled at the pharmacist and said to the little girl: “Wow, these are enough to buy a miracle.”

The little girl cracked a satisfied smile.

The man said: “Can you take me to your brother?”


She walked the stranger to a little room they called home where her mother was crying beside a little…

Hot-Weather Tips for Visitors to Texas — Biff Sock Pow

I love his sense of humor.

Penny Wilson Writes

I live in Fort Worth, Texas and it has been horribly hot here lately.  I’ve thought about writing about it, but after I saw Biff’s post, I knew I couldn’t top it.  Please enjoy his post and be sure to look over his blog while you are there.  It’s well worth the visit!

It looks like it’s going to be another scorcher today here in Texas. Which, is pretty much like saying, “It looks like the sun will be coming up again today.” A few days ago when I was driving home from work, the outside temperature (according to my car’s temperature display) was 108 degrees […]

Lamenting the moral void into which society has fallen

It seems unimaginable that people could respond with so much violence instead of a simple, “Excuse me, did you hear what I said?”” As a nurse and a Christian, I’ve tried to be tolerant of others. It isn’t always easy. We don’t know what the other person is going through and should not make snap judgments.

Matthew Wright

I cannot but lament the moral void into which the world seems to be falling. Political intrigue. Weaponised social media. A new definition of ‘facts’ based not on empirical reality but on personal need. And it shows. I think everyday behaviour’s deteriorating, likely worldwide – and certainly around me.

I worry about a loss of moral core in society, a loss of a sense of tolerance and care for each other. These days, it seems, going out for an hour or two is invitation to have burglars strip the place (as happened to some people I know this week). Or people treat others as less than human, apparently for existing or – often – not responding as expected. It happened to me the other week when I was walking past the national cenotaph in Wellington the other week, deeply wrapped in my own thoughts, and became vaguely aware of somebody…

Faith Filled Friday: 4 Basic Elements to Survive

Science says that we need at least 4 basic elements to survive:

And look what the Bible tells us about Jesus:
I am the Living Water
I am the Breath of Life
I am the Bread of Life
I am the Light of the World

Science was right, we need Jesus in order to live.
