Give Me Eyes To See And Wisdom To Do
Published
Over the past year or so, my attention is drawn to how blindly we go through life, oblivous to the needs around us. When we do become aware of them, we often say and do things that are thoughtless and than plead ignorance if our thoughtlessness is...
Good To Know You're There!
Published
With our first cry, we find sudden comfort in hearing the voice of our mother and feeling her arms around us as well as the familiar beating of her heart. Suddenly the confusion around us does not matter for we discover we are not alone. Separation....
Build Up Your Defenses!
Published
Nehemiah was extremely troubled. Although the temple had been rebuilt years earlier by the returning Jews, the walls of Jerusalem still lay in ruins. In ancient times, having a strong wall with strong gates was crucial. The purpose of the wall was to...
Let It Go!
Published
I have a confession to make. Actually, this is no secret to those who know me well. When I am faced with a dilema, I have a tendency to seize it and lock on to it like a pit bull, shaking it about until I have conquered it or sometimes until it has...
But God Didn't...!
Published
Over the past few years, God has called my husband and I to minister to people who are in financial crisis. We cringe at the mistakes we have made over the years but are thankful that God has used those mistakes to teach us some very valuable lessons...
It Is Not Forever
Published
On February 29, 2008, I began chemo treatments every other Friday. Exactly 24 hours after my infusion ended, I had to report to another clinic that was opened on Saturdays in order to have my Neulasta shot. Chemo works by destroying fast-growing cells...
In This Moment
Published
A blog posted today by @paulphil entitled About Defining Moments caused me to think about a major defining moment in my life that has radically affected the way I not only view things but how I live. I began to think in terms of "moments"...
Listening To God's Voice

The Daily Bible Verse here at CB today is: "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I have strengthened you, and have also helped you, yea, I will also uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah...
Together Through The Bad Times As Well As The Good
Published
Tonight my husband and I attended the 40th wedding anniversary of my son's future in-laws. Tears filled my eyes as I listened to them renew their vows. You see, this was not a starry-eyed bride and groom promising to be with each other through...
Cherishing The Gift Of Friendship
Published
I visited the grave of a dear friend today. I miss him and I miss the sparkle in his wife's eyes. I will not pretend to say I know how she feels because I don't. However, I do understand that she has been ripped in two. When God says we become...
It Was Impossible
Published
I shook my head that night after we had left the home of our friends who were hosting a small group on managing your finances. The first step involved doing what you could to quickly establish a $1,000 emergency fund before tackling your debt. While...
Follow The Signs!
Published
I had to go to the St. Louis airport early this morning. Since I had never been there before, I carefully followed the signs to the parking ramp. When I arrived at the entrance however, there was a road block and a sign which said the ramp was full....
Preventative Care Screening
Published
This morning I read a comment on a discussion board that made me stop in my tracks. I didn't know whether to laugh at the foolishness of the statement or get angry at what I perceived to be not only a stupid but possibly dangerous remark....
Write It Down!
Published
This morning after reading a blog written by @paulushoffmaster entitled Remembering The Plenteous, I thought about the times that I pull out the box of pictures in my mind that is labeled, "Me and God". You know, that is my favorite box of...
A Good Foundation
Published
Last week I struggled and struggled in my first attempt to crochet a baby blanket for a little one who is due to arrive in mid-December. I must confess that normally I do not always take the time to pay as much attention to details as I should which...
Ignoring The Little Signs
Published
Almost two years I inherited a desk chair from my son. He was clearing out his house after his divorce and I needed a new chair for my desk. I tried it out and thought it would do the trick but within a few weeks I would discover that I was wrong. It...
When One Hurts We All Hurt
Published
Anyone who has experienced back pain knows how debilitating it can be. Over the past few days, the smallest task has become extremely difficult, painful and time-consuming for me and it is beginning to show up in my house. It is not that the other...
Fixing Our Eyes On Christ
Published
In all honesty, I have not liked the year 2016 very much. The year started out with an uncertain situation that was not resolved until April and the sudden death of one of my mother's younger sisters. It progressed to to things like more serious...
My Great Adventure At CB
Published
I arrived at CB on July 29, 2007. I didn't know it at the time but I was about to embark on a great adventure, an adventure that is not over yet. It all began with a casual remark made by my son that I should blog. At the time I laughed at him....
The Crocheted Blanket
Published
After a hiatus of about 35 years or so, I took up a crochet hook once again this past week. I had learned to crochet as a girl but I never took it very seriously. The projects I actually managed to finish consisted of a few doilies I had created on a...
Walk By Faith, Not By Sight
Published
This morning I read a blog by@watchmanjohn entitledThe Miraculous Is Often Not The Best Medicine For Us and I have to say that I agree. The road God has had me on over the past eight years has been the rockiest and most difficult one I have ever...
Into The Battle

Last summer, while watching the movieThe War Room at the local theater,I remember suddenly starting and sitting up straight. An elderly widow known as "Miss Clara" was showing her real estate estate agent, Elizabeth, what she considered to...
The Towel Or The Title?
Published
This past weekend, the text my pastor used was from John 13 which is the account of what has become known as "The Last Supper". It is a story which is familiar to many of us. Jesus takes a towel and to the horror of his disciples, begins to...
The Old Scrap Book
Published
A few days ago my mother decided to begin sorting through the things in her attics. Yes, I said attics as my mother's house has not one but four dormer attics. My family moved into that house the summer of 1968 so much has made its way into those...
Running Into The Chaos

The name of the current sermon series at my church this summer is called "Sandal Summer". The first message in the series challenged us to be like Joshua and the Israelites and dare to put our feet into the water so that we can step into the...
