As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

There are seasons of life when that is what we do. We walk.

No running.

Certainly no soaring.

Just walking.

And "doing the next thing."

All by His grace...


  1. Truth and simplicity. Love this...thanks :)

  2. This is the truth! Thank you for sharing...


  3. "Doing the next thing." Thank you for your wise words. ♥

  4. So true, and I happen to be in one of those seasons of 'walking and waiting.' Many blessings on your Wednesday, Cheryl.

  5. Trudge, trudge, trudge. Praying for some joy in the journey. Without it, life grows very dull indeed. Love to you all...

  6. Sometimes in our zeal to accomplish we forget how good just walking is. One step at a time. We don't need the big picture. Thanks for this and enjoy fall moments!

  7. Yes, indeed. One foot in front of the other, one step at a time. One of my favorite verses.

  8. I think it's important to remind ourselves and one another about "walking". And "doing the next thing" (Elisabeth Elliot, I believe, was known to say that). Let's keep our eyes on the goal and "press on" - stay in forward motion. Don't shrink back!

  9. So true. If we continue to walk we'll have opportunity to soar gain. Great reminder!

  10. A great truth to remember and contemplate each and every day we are blessed with.

    Happy Fall ~ FlowerLady

  11. **doing the next thing**

    .. by His grace and leading.
    .. treasuring the lamplight for the next step.
    .. keep on keepin' on.
