Living Each Moment
Published
A few days ago, on a cancer website, I read a desperate cry from a woman who is struggling with anxiety after being diagnosed with breast cancer nine months ago. She finished rads a few months ago and had 22 rounds. Her feelings of anxiety in regards...
The Faithful Friend
Published
In the second epistle to Timothy, Paul mentions a man named Onesiphorus. He is only mentioned twice and both times it is in this epistle. Based on Paul's choice of words, many scholars believe that Onesiphorus had recently died because in 2...
The Beaded Bracelet
Published
I was suddenly aware of noise around all around me. The faces of people who seemed familiar faded in and out. Why were they here? Wait, those voices. I had heard them before. I detected a booming voice but then a soft but strong and firm voice. Donna....
An Unexpected Blessing
Published
In the fall of 2013, when my husband was unemployed, God miraculously provided the means for him to begin to work towards obtaining his Master of Divinity. This was something he wanted to do after obtaining his BA in Biblical Education in 1982 with a...
But That IS Normal!
Published
I have cold-induced asthma which means that although I have an inhaler, I rarely need to use it unless I have a cold. Since a cold can hurl me into a vicious cycle that can last for months, the moment I start "barking", I begin using my...
The Littlest Things
Published
A little while ago someone called into the radio station I was listening to and told about an incident that happened to them the other night. The caller had gone to the Red Box kiosk and rented the movie "The War Room". After getting the...
Looking Beyond This Moment
Published
A little while ago I found myself singing, The Greatness of Our God. As I sang, I thought about the words. I don't know about you but often I find myself to be rather short-sighted. I may say the right words and talk about faith but in reality, I...
Room At The Inn
Published
We were exhausted when we pulled into the driveway of my husband's father the night before Thanksgiving in 1980. I had been on the road for about 12 hours as I had driven from northeastern Tennessee where I was attending college down to a town...
Does It Really Fit?
Published
"Context! Context! Context!" I cannot tell you how many times over the years that my husband has uttered those words at me. I love allegories and analogies. I love to dig beneath the words on a page, looking for buried treasure amd get...
Let Me Do That!
Published
For many years I spent the day surrounded by the Little People and I do not mean the leprachauns that inhabit the abodes of @bethy and @godissogood though sometimes I suspected that they might be related to the Wee Folk. One thing you learn about...
When God Whispers In The Night
Published
Earlier today, I wrote a blog entitled Deliberately Letting Go in which I shared a struggle I had been facing for the past 10 days and had intensified over the past few days. I am very thankful for the prayers and support of my CB family. A little bit...
Deliberately Letting Go
Published
For the past few days, I have been struggling with overwhelming despair. It was compounded by the fact that the trigger was two-part. An change in my diabetes medication last week caused some very unpleasant side-effects which are just now being...
Who Shall Separate Us?
Published
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35 (KJV) In Romans 8:35, Paul first asks the reader a retorical question and then follows it by giving...
Wrapped Up In God's Blanket
Published
In December 2009, I published a blog entitled Wrapped In God's Blanket. I didn't know it at the time but just four days later I would be lying in the back of an ambulance tightly wrapped up in God's blanket after suffering a subarachnoid...
In A Twinkling Of An Eye
Published
It was a ordinary day, just like all of the other ordinary days that had happened before it. I woke up, got ready for work, headed off to school where I spent the day teaching wiggly second graders who preferred playing outside in the snow more than...
All That I Have
Published
Like most Americans, when I hear the word "thanksgiving", I think about the harvest celebration held at what is now Plymouth, Massachusetts during the autumn of 1621. Shortly thereafter, a participant named Edward Winslow wrote: Our harvest...
Lift Up Your Voice!
Published
In his blog entitled Weapons of Righteousness, @watchmanjohn mentioned a weapon that I fear is often underutilized. What is this weapon? Praise. I don't think most people think of praise in terms of being a spiritual weapon. They think of it as...
Eight Years Later
Published
There is evidence of a spiculated mass in the upper central portion of the left breast with possible satellite lesion. We will evaluate the area with focal compression views and ultrasound. Radiology will schedule additional views of the left breast...
Its In The Genes
Published
I am meeting with a genetic counselor this afternoon in order to determine whether or not I should be tested for being a carrier of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations which can be responsible for breast cancer (in men as well as women), ovarian,...
There Is A Cost
Published
Earlier today, while doing some Christmas shopping, I headed over to a website a friend of mine had told me about. The items are made by women living in poverty in countries where being a Christian means facing severe persecution. The woman who made...
God Is Perfect In All Of His Ways
Published
This morning at church we sang a song entitled, Good Good Father. If we believe what is written in the Book of Job, then we believe that the enemy cannot bring any harm upon us except by God's permission. Truthfully, this is a very tough pill to...
A New Way Of Thinking
Published
A few years ago, I learned of an excellent book which exams the parables of Jesus from a cultural perspective. The name of the book is Through Peasant Eyes by Dr. Kenneth E. Bailey who was formerly the chairman of the Biblical Department at the Near...
That You May Prosper
Published
In December 2007, I joined a breast cancer support group which met at the hospital where I was going to have surgery my surgery done. After my diagnosis, right before my husband and I met with the surgeon, a wonderful woman named Barb introduced...
His Eye's On The Sparrow
Published
There is a noticeable silence outside of my window. A small woods borders my yard and in the spring and summer, I am treated to a songbird symphony most mornings. I love it! Several lakes are just down the road as well and in the spring it is not...
Prepared To Live
Published
The area of the world where I live has what is known as a continental climate meaning that during the course of a year the climate ranges from subzero temperatures and bone-chilling (literally) windchills to heat and humidty that can sometimes rival...
