About cewaterman

I love God, my family, and writing--in that order. I live in Colorado, and I like to play golf, hike (not 14'ers, that's my husband's passion), and generally enjoy the beautiful scenery that God created. I have two beautiful daughters, three wonderful grandchildren, and a husband who has loved me well for over thirty years. I am truly blessed. I love encouraging people on the journey to becoming what God created them to be, including myself!

Waiting

We don’t like that word – wait. It isn’t yes, which we want to hear, or even no, which would allow us to move on. It’s not yet, or hold. We scurry around our world, doing, doing, doing. And it … Continue reading

Behavior Issues

Romans 7:15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. Paul had it so right. I want to be generous and kind, uplifting and encouraging. But … Continue reading

Guilt and Shame

As humans we aren’t perfect. If that’s a revelation, we might need to have a different conversation. Since you’re still reading, we must be on the same page. Goodness isn’t a natural trait; we have a lot to learn, and … Continue reading
