The Messy Business Of Sacrifice
Published
This morning, while reading a blog by @doneuntotheleast entitled Loving Our Neighbor,Pouring Ourselves out,Crucified With Him it suddenly occurred to me that we often romanticize the word sacrifice. I got to thinking about what was involved in...
But For The Grace Of God

This evening I was reminded of the unspeakable cruelty human beings can show to one another. In our shock and horror it is easy to point our fingers at those who commit these heinous crimes and forget that without Christ, we too are capable of doing...

I don't know about you but sometimes I feel like that little guy in the picture. I will run and run and run but it seems like I am not getting anywhere. I think we can all relate to that feeling. Despite our best efforts we feel like we are simply...
One Dark Night
Published
Hidden within me was a secret. It had been there since before I was born but no one knew about it, no one knew it was there except God. It was a time bomb, just waiting to go off. It could have gone off when I was at the front of a classroom, teaching...
The Blame Game

Earlier today I read an excellent blog by @deepaanne entitled Never Try To Hide Disobedience Behind Satanic. I'd like to take it one step further, however. Let's take a closer look at what takes place in Genesis 3 after Adam and Eve hear...
A Hole In The Ground

When I was a little girl, I sort of felt sorry for him. After all, it seemed reasonable to me. If someone gave you something, you didn't want to lose it, right? So you would put it away for safe-keeping. I did that all the time. I had my little...
The Gift Of Giving
Published
The short, cold afternoon was quickly ending as I stood at my kitchen sink. I glanced out the window and saw my neighbor crossing the street and coming towards my house with something in her hands. Pat's mailbox is directly above mine and...
Keep On Singing
Published
It had started out as an ordinary day. The night before, family and friends had gathered to celebrate my 47th birthday which had been a few days before. As we laughed together, I remember thinking about what a wonderful life I had. Of course there...
Cancer In Our Soul

In a blog written by @watchmanjohn entitled The Other Biblical Covenants he mentioned that sin is not a disease but rebellion against God. While I understood what he meant about sin not being a "disease" but rebellion against God, I could...
You, O Lord, Keep Me Safe
Published
This morning, when I logged onto CB, one of the first things I saw was a wall post by @niki20 which said: Psalm 4:8 "I will lie down in peace and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe." Every time I read that verse, my mind goes...

Mourning Into Dancing

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, Psalm 30:11 (NIV) She slipped into the room quietly last night when I least expected her. I knew God had promised that He would bring her and in fact, I had been...
Joy Comes In The Morning

I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss.Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.I say to...
Go In The Strength You Have
Published
This morning, as I read a blog by @watchmanjohn entitled Where Has My God-Given Immunity Gone, the words from a verse he quoted jumped out at me. 'The LORD turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have' Judges 6:14 Several times a...
But I Didn't Mean It!
Published
Though it happened more than 30 years ago, I still remember one Sunday after church when I had decided to give my husband "the silent treatment" because something he said after church in jest had hurt my feelings. I never have been an...

The Breath of God

There is a memory tucked away within me that is so profound that whenever I think about it, I find myself sitting there recalling it for a long time and I am often moved to tears. An intense longing fills my heart and though the memory is so precious...
That The LORD Your God May Bless You

Deuteronomy 14:28-29 - At the end of every third year you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates. And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the stranger and the fatherless...
Crying In The Arms Of God
Published
It is easy to get distracted. We find ourselves zooming along the Road of Life, supposedly meeting each challenge and then life throws us a curve or two. We did the right thing. We cried out to the Lord to help and deliver us. Sometimes, we must cry...
You Have To Pay Attention
Published
I meant well. I really did. When I went to the grocery store today, I saw a small package of ribs that was marked down several dollars. I decided to ditch what I had planned to make for dinner this evening in favor of ribs. Mmmm! Over the past couple...
Doing The Impossible

Peter Gideon had a dream. He wanted to grow apples. Fulfilling that dream seems simple enough. The problem was he moved to Minnesota in 1853 and apple trees simply could not survive the harsh Minnesota winters. Undaunted, Peter Gideon proceded to...

In the words of Jane Austen, any "bloom" I ever had faded a long time ago. Some of this was the result of age and even, though I hate to say it, neglect. I was too busy with the business of living. What nature and carelessness didn't do,...
