The Broken Mask
Published
I can see them now, sitting in front of me, with their masks carefully in place. Their physical flaws are carefully hidden by make-up, hair pieces and/or hair dye and clothing designed to make you appear either larger or smaller, depending on your...
The Time Is Now
Published
In October 2017, I purchased a ticket for a women's conference that was going to be held in October 2018. Yes, that's right. I purchased my ticket a year in advance. Why? Because over the last several years I knew this conference had been sold...
A Clean Sweep
Published
I got out my electric sweeper the other day in order to give the textured tile floor in my kitchen a good cleaning. While using it, I moved the pedestal table that sits next to the bay window and suddenly let out a gasp as the sweeper bumped up...
'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus
Published
Yesterday I got the news that my two-year-old grandson had been diagnosed with having pneumonia. It is a word that always strikes terror into my heart. Too often, in this age of antibiotics, we forget that pneumonia is a killer. My great-grandfather...
Create In Me!
Published
I almost did it again. I saw a comment someone made on social media that was offensive to me. They had attacked someone else and used terrible language. Instinctively I wanted to lash out at them. I wanted to ask them exactly who they thought they...
When We Do Not Understand
Published
A few days ago I learned of two people who were in critical condition. The first person was my 63 year old cousin who had to be airlifted to a hospital that was about 100 miles from her home due to a brain bleed. I got the call shortly after midnight...
On The Way To Green Pastures And Still Waters
Published
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the...
Fear not, I Am With You

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will...
A Glimpse Beyond The Clouds
Published
It had been a gloomy, dreary day and I was tired of it. The summer had been usually wet  and it seemed like I had seen the clouds far more than I had seen the sun. I'm not used to that as the summers where I live tend to be more on the dry side...
A Candle In The Night
Published
You are the light of the world like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14 (NLT) Everywhere we look we can see that the world is growing darker by the moment. Society has never been completely stagnant but things that were not only...
It Is Not The End Of Your Story
Published
I read a blog today that was written five years ago by a very good friend of mine. The blog is entitled  44 Years And God Loves Me No Matter What  by @blessings2you. Reading the blog was bitter-sweet for me. My friend was a member of Christianblog.com...
A Time To Rest
Published
In the spring of 2016, my husband who had applied for his minister's license and myself had to attend a credential workshop. At the end of the two day workshop, we would both be interviewed by a panel of three before a final decision would be...
Lord, Help Us To Listen
Published
I am married to a Listener. In all honesty, I shudder to think what might have happened to me if I had not married a Listener. I am not a Listener by nature. If I do not keep things tightly in check, my emotions explode all over the place and when...
The Strength Of My Heart
Published
Whom have I in heaven but you?  I desire you more than anything on earth.  My health may  fail, and my spirit may grow weak,  but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine  forever.  Psalm 73:25-26 (NLT)  As I pondered these words this morning,...
He Directs Our Path
Published
  It was just a routine physical and everything checked out fine but since he had a family history of heart disease, the man's doctor suggested doing some additional tests. He was in excellent physical condition and felt just fine but he decided...
Heed The Warning Signs
Published
  I got a call from my mom earlier this afternoon. She had just learned that her 82 year old cousin had a heart attack.  This morning, while preparing to set off across the country with his daughter, he suddenly did not feel well. He'd had heart...
When The Storms Of Life Come
Published
May 6, 1965 began as an unusually hot and sunny day in Minnesota but it would go down in meterological history as "The Longest Night". I was only four years old but I clearly remember the look of relief that flooded my father's face when...
The Unexpected Road
Published
It has been a rather rainy spring and summer in my neck of the woods and we finally had a string of sunny days. Eager to be out and about, I decided to give my husband the gift of a quiet house on Saturday so he could finish preparing his sermon in...
Trapped In The Darkness
Published
This morning I learned that last night a couple that I know heard the worst news that a parent can possibly hear. Their son took his own life. It is terrible enough to lose someone you love whether through illness, accident or even by the hand of...
Glimmers of Light In The Darkness
Published
I belong to a Facebook group for people who have been diagnosed with  Triple Negative Breast Cancer. It is an aggressive form of breast cancer which has a poor prognosis for the first few years but the statistics for recurrence drop dramatically after...
God's Blanket Of Love
Published
When I was going through treatment for breast cancer, I attended a class called "Look Good, Feel Better". The class I attended was held at a local church. After the class was over, the participants were given prayer shawls which had been...
Run To Meet The Giant
Published
  A couple of months ago I wrote a blog entitled Facing The Giant in which I recounted the story of David and Goliath. In re-reading that story earlier today, I noticed something I had not noticed the first time.  As the Philistine moved closer to...
For What Do You Seek
Published
  I re-read a blog by @watchmanjohn this morning entitled The Window The Rope And The Basket. It is a blog well-worth reading over and over again for it is far too easy to do what a friend of mine calls "seeking God's hand rather than His...
God Has You
Published
In December 2007 I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) which is a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Unlike other breast cancers, there is no hormone therapy for it and whereas the five year survival rate for most breast...
He's More Than What We Are

  In the movie,  "The Hiding Place", there is a conversation that takes place between Corrie ten Boom and her older sister, Betsie. Corrie, convicted by Betsie's ongoing message that we must love and forgive our enemies, confesses her...
