And I Almost Blew It
Published
This is the tale of how my husband and I nearly blew it.  It all started last summer, well, actually it started a few years before that so I need to back up even a bit further. We live in a townhome and so we are a part of an association. There are...
First Things First
Published
Life gets busy. If you are not careful, you will quickly find yourself running in circles with no time for anyone let alone yourself and perhaps ...even God. You are full of good intentions. You tell God, "Gotta run but I will be back later. I...
In The Dark Of Night
Published
I was first introduced to John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress" when I was about seven years old. In fact, looking back, I have no doubt that God used those lessons, adapted for children by Child Evangelism Fellowship, to lay the...
Unrehearsed
Published
We all want to have some sort of impact or leave some sort of imprint in this world. Some people are rather vocal about that desire whereas others just sort of shyly smile as if you have discovered their secret. Some people will flat out deny it for...
The Mountain
Published
Last week my husband and I were visiting relatives in Colorado Springs. One day we decided to drive up Pikes Peak which has an elevation of 14,115 feet (nearly 4,302 meters). This was my second visit to Pikes Peak. The first time my aunt, who lives in...
You Mean I Have To Actually Do Something?
Published
Things have been a bit... busy, yeah that's the word I was looking for, at my house lately. My grandsons, aged 2 1/2 and 11 months have been spending a lot of time there.  When you say the words "two year old", people get a slightly...
But Wait, It Hurts Over Here!
Published
I've had to deal with some serious health issues over the past 11 years so it did not surprise me that over time, it affected my body.  Then of course there is that little issue of growing older. I have reached the age when my body reminds me that...
The Right Way Is The Only Way
Published
My heart sank as I listened to the voice on the other end of the phone. Several days earlier, my car had been totaled and the day before I had sent the title by overnight express to my insurance company so they could issue payment to both myself as...
And He Shall Direct Your Path
Published
Note: This photo was taken after my car had been carefully pushed up off the green as the tow truck was prohibited from going onto the turf. I admit it. I was not paying attention to what I should have been. Busy with my thoughts, I missed a changing...
The Restaurant
Published
She and her husband opened a small cafeteria-style steakhouse in a small town about 35 years ago. She ran it with her husband until his death six years ago. Now she runs it with her children. While steak dominates the menu, there are also items that...
My Problem, Our Problem or God's Problem
Published
I'm currently reading a book called, "Fix It! Whose problem is it?" by Rob Ketterling. The author breaks the problems we encounter into three catergories of responsibility.  The first category is the type of problems that are our own...
Well-Seasoned Or Just Plain Salty?
Published
My heart felt sick as I visited the Facebook pages of some friends yesterday. They were all people whom I had known since childhood and all of them profess to be Christians. I have attended church with them and worked beside them in places like Sunday...
Before The Miracle
Published
And they all ate and were satisfied. Matthew 14:20 (ESV)   It had been a long day. The crowd of more than 5,000 men (plus women and children), had listened to Jesus all day and were undoubtedly tired and hungry. In fact, the disciples urged Jesus to...
But Inside
Published
A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Matthew 7:18 (ESV) When I read this verse earlier today, I could not help but think about how some would argue against this analogy. They would be quick to point out the...
Living In A Dark, Cold And Dangerous World
Published
On my way to church yesterday, I noted the beautiful winter sky and thought to myself that if I had not listened to the weather report, I would have never known there had been a winter storm warning issued for later that day. I would have never known...
Lookin' Good On The Outside
Published
A while back some friends of mine were in an accident that totalled their car. Unfortunately, they were still making payments on that vehicle and the settlement was for less than what they owed and of course, were responsible for the shortfall. In the...
I Need God Every Hour!
Published
I am not ashamed to admit I simply don t stand a chance without God. My family and most of my friends know that I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured brain aneurysm nine years ago...in my sleep. That doesn t just happen, folks. People who...
A Broken Connection
Published
When it comes to computers, neither my husband nor myself are very saavy which often surprises people as he is an AV guy. Apparently people think computers and audio/video equipment are one and the same. They are not. Last night, we suddenly lost our...
A Tale Of Two Companies
Published
This is the tale of two companies. The names have been changed to protect the guilty. Other than that, this is a true tale that took place today. Last evening, for some reason I decided to go on-line to see if a transaction had gone through on a...
A Race Well-Run
Published
I stumbled across a tribute on my Facebook feed the other day. I only saw it because the writer of the tribute happened to mention one of my mother's first cousins. I have only seen this cousin a few times over the past 45 years as she moved to...
To Grandmother's House We Go!
Published
I flung open my front door last week and saw my two year old grandson dancing around on the doorstep. Clearly he was very excited that he was going to spend some time at Grandma's house. His big smile grew even broader when I opened the door and...
The Tale Of Banana Bread An Ongoing Saga
Published
It started out as a simple gesture. My husband was in grad school and money was extremely tight but he wanted to give something to co-workers during the holiday season. We had some bananas that were quickly ripening so he decided to put them to good...
The Burned-Out Candle
Published
Nowadays I find myself cringing when I hear non-Christians in our society talk about Christians. Why? Because they talk about how intolerant, hypocritical and hateful we are towards others. If this were not true, it would not bother me. Unfortunately...
Looking Back To Look Ahead
Published
On December 3, 2007 I opened up an email that said I could view a recent test result that had just posted. I remembered that I had just had a recent routine mammogram so I followed the link, logged in and read these words: "There is evidence of a...
Further Out Or Further In?
Published
I was thinking about the phrase, "rock bottom" today. What this means is you have reached the lowest level and you cannot go any further. It came to mind, however, that while hitting "rock bottom" will often cause a person to...
