To The Troubled Heart
Published
On the eve of His betrayal, Jesus says these words to His disciples: Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. John 14:1 (KJV) Knowing that He was about to be betrayed, abandoned, denied, beaten, publicly humiliated and...
He Leads Me
Published
Due to a brain injury I sustained five years ago, I can often feel vulnerable and with vulnerability comes anxiety. Sometimes without any warning (or reason) I can suddenly go from being a capable, mature middle-aged woman to a frightened and anxious...
If You Don't Know...
Published
How would you respond to the question, "Why do you believe what you believe?" Would you respond with a pat answer like, "Because that's what I was taught at church" or "That's what my family has always believed"...
The Great Deal!
Published
Everyday we are bombarded with images and messages that are intent upon getting us to open up our wallets and exchange it for goods and services. Generally, it is more often goods than services and should our wallet be a bit... empty, that's okay...
Can A Leopard Take Away Its Spots?
Published
"I'll change! I'll change!" As a mother and a former elementary school teacher, I have heard those words often enough. Usually they burst forth when the guilty party has been apprehended by someone with the authority to judge as well...
In Time Of Trouble They Cry Out To Me
Published
The second chapter of Jeremiah is a chilling reminder that we cannot play games with God. Like children we attempt to push the boundaries to see how far we can go. Then when we find ourselves in trouble, we cry out to God for help. My father would...
Carried In His Arms
Published
It came from out of nowhere when I least expected it. There were no warnings of impending danger, no blaring lights or horns, no sense that something was suddenly spinning out of control and no gripping pain. There was nothing. Then the peaceful,...
What Is Forgiveness?
Published
"I forgive you." We often say those words but I can't help but wonder if we really have? You see, often we are not only quick to relive the offense in our mind, we take it one step further and make sure that others know that we forgave...
Our Place In The Body Of Christ
Published
The vast majority of people never give the trillions of cells within their body a first thought, let alone a second thought. Truthfully, that's the way it should be. Normally those little guys efficiently go about their business, doing exactly...
The Old Man And The Young Whippersnapper
Published
My son's kitten, Loki, is a black and white bundle of energy. He zips about the house like a small tornado. My son recently moved in with a friend who has two large hunting dogs and so it was decided that it was best for Loki to go live with my...
The Disease Of Sin
Published
It was a bright, sunny day in early December. I remember it well. In fact, I can not only tell you the date, December 3rd but I can also tell you that it was shortly before 8 a.m. and it was Monday. If you were to come to my house, I could show you...
The Tares And The Wheat
Published
In order to avoid any confusion, I want to start out by clarifying what I mean when I use the term "Church". I am not talking about a brick and mortar building or any other physical building for that matter. I also am not talking about a...
The Way Home
Published
Living in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, I have learned that sometimes you simply cannot always get from here to there by taking the shortest and most direct route. There might be a lake or for that matter, a river in the way. I was reminded of that...
Helping Or Hurting?
Published
Last summer, my son met a man who is involved in the independent film community in our area. After reading some of my son's work, he asked my son if he would write a 10 minutes film for him to direct and present at a local short film festival in...
All Is Well
Published
I recently watched a program called The Crash of 1929 on the PBS series, The American Experience. While watching it I heard a story about a woman named Dorothy Livermore who was married to Jesse Livermore, a stock speculator who was worth more than...
Warning! Warning! Warning!
Published
I was awakened out of a sound sleep this morning by a "voice" which said, "Warning! A severe thunderstorm warning has just been issued for your area until 9:00 a.m." Growing up and living in the midwestern United States I am all...
The Early Morning Rain
Published
I was awakened early this morning by the sound of thunder. It wasn't long before I saw flashes of lighting and heard the pounding of raindrops on the rooftop as wel as on the windowpane. There have been periods of rain all morning though none of...
Honor or Dishonor
Published
A little while ago, after reading a wall comment here at CB, I found myself thinking about how we present ourselves to the world. Growing up, I was raised in a denomination that put a great deal of emphasis on what they callled "holiness"....
The Garage Door
Published
This morning I was greeted by a note from my husband, written in large black friendly letters which said: Do Not Use the Garage Door. It has jumped the track! Uh oh! I thought about how I had planned to go grocery shopping and wondered for a moment if...
For Just Such A Time As This
Published
This summer, the women's Bible study group I attend is studying the Book of Esther. This morning when as I was doing the reading, a highlighted portion of a verse on the opposite page suddenly drew my attention. At some point in time, I had...
And God Was There
Published
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? Psalm 139:7 One of the things that plagues the human race as a whole is a sense of aloneness. We can be in a crowd, surrounded by family and friends who love us and yet...
All The Days
Published
This morning, as I read a blog by @blessings2you entitled Whatever The Lord Wants, That Is What I Want, I found myself thinking about what Jesus said in the 28th chapter of Matthew: "... and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the...
When Darkness Hides His Lovely Face
Published
On March 28, 2008, I had my first infusion of a chemo drug called Taxol. I'd previously had four infusions of Adriamycin/Cytoxen (A/C)and had been told that generally most people tolerate Taxol far better. Granted about 40% of the people have an...
Angels Of Mercy
Published
Many of us over the years have had terrible experiences with doctors, nurses and/or hospitals. I have too but I have also had some incredible experiences as well and I have to tell you, I am very thankful that I have also had some wonderful doctors...
When I Am Weak
Published
I call it the five year old syndrome and I began to experience it after I'd had a ruptured brain aneurysm in December 2009. One of the things I lost was my ability to multi-task. I had been an elementary school teacher working in the inner-city...
