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...
On The One Hand
Published
I found myself internally shaking my head in disbelief. Looking at the women around me, I could tell that they were as mystified as I was.  A woman had been telling us about how she was overwhelmed this year and simply did not know how she was going...
When I Feel Overwhelmed
Published
Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and weak; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [a rock that is too high to reach without Your help]. For You have been a shelter and a...
But Is It True?
Published
We first hear of Saul, the man who would later become known as the Apostle Paul, as a witness to the martydom of Stephen. After Stephen was dragged out of the city to be stoned, his accusers laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul (Acts...
The Fruit We Offer
Published
In a recent sermon series entitled "Reclaim The Table", my campus pastor brought up a point I had never thought about before. He talked about the table  of our life and that everyday we "offer fruit" to those around us. Now I have...
The Faithfulness Of God
Published
This morning while I was on my knees, I found myself singing the song, "Yes and Amen". Looking back on my own life I must honestly say that God has always been and continues to be faithful, even when I have been straining desperately to...
A Chance Meeting
Published
  I started to grab a grocery cart this afternoon. I only had a few items to grab and and knew I would be in and out in just a few minutes. Just as I started to grab a cart, I felt impressed to head for the restrooms. Huh? I didn't need... well......
The Prodigal Kitten
Published
I got the news early this morning. Last evening my son and daughter-in-law had discovered that their two month old kitten had apparently made a run for it and had slipped out the door. She is very small, athletic, black and it was dark outside. Need I...
The Open Invitation
Published
All day I have been thinking about a conversation I had yesterday with a fellow-Christian. Some of the things they said sounded well and good on the surface perhaps but I found myself chilled to the bone as I considered the ramifications of some of...
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
Published
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...
