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

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...
Defending Our Faith
Published
Often times when we talk about defending our faith, we get a mental image of donning a suit of armor, mounting a horse and brandishing a sword or lance as we race into battle, intent on annihilating whoever dared to ask us a question. Perhaps instead...
The Importance Of Friends
Published
I remember that terrible time last fall when my son was "ripped apart" when his wife walked out the door and his world collapsed around him. His first response was to cry out to God. This must always be our first response for God and God...
The House Of Broken Dreams
Published
I remember the day I first saw it. My son and his wife were moving back to Minnesota after she had lost her job teaching at a small private school in rural Nebraska. My son had come back a few weeks before the school year was finished to try to find a...
How Is Your Connection?
Published
At first I did not even realize that it was happening. I would be zooming along on the internet, happily racing through cyberspace unaware that sometimes when I stopped to take in the view I became disconnected for a moment. It is hard to say how long...
My Ever-Present Help
Published
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (NIV) This morning, I turned to Psalm 46 and was reminded that not only is God our refuge and strength, He is our ever-present help. When God's Word tells us that He is...
A Hidden Treasure
Published
It was Easter morning in 1967 and I, along with my brother searched the house for the Easter eggs we had helped our parents color the night before. I was as excited as any six year old could be and I had a favorite egg in mind. The night before, my...
Yet Another Appointment
Published
For nearly 30 years I have been a member of a health care co-op. Established nearly 60 years ago, it has over 1 million members and is the largest consumer-governed health care organization in the United States. It is unique in that it provides both...
The Black Envelope
Published
My pastor is currently doing a sermon series called "I didn't ask for this!" The title of last week's sermon was "The Black Envelope". While listening to the sermon, I found myself remembering the day I was given a black...
A Closer Look At The Good Samaritan
Published
The other night my son and I were having one of those mother and son talks. We have done that a lot over the years actually and the older he has gotten, the more thankful I am that I always made time to talk to and listen to my son. If you do not make...
Run The Race With Perseverance
Published
On September 3, 2007, a few months after I joined CB, I wrote a blog entitled God Is Bigger. In that blog I shared about my cousin Diane who has a rare cerebrovascular disorder called Moyamoya Disease. Life had been tough. About 20 years ago, her...
Oh Be Careful Little Tongue What You Say
Published
A few years ago, I read a book by Brother Andrew entitled "Light Force: The Only Hope For The Middle East". I have to say that this book, along with another book by the same author, entitled "Secret Believers", gave me much to...
Are You Willing?
Published
We like to think that we are willing to face a great deal for the sake of the Gospel but I wonder if we are willing to face simply being inconvenienced or having our life interrupted by someone else? We have all experienced this. We are busy, we have...
