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...
I Am Empty

She had fled the land of the dying with her husband and two sons but death followed her into the land of the living. While dwelling there she suffered not only the loss of her husband but of her sons. Left alone with her daughter-in-laws, she decided...
The Breath of God
Published
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
Published
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
Published
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...
But I Will Always Have Hope!
Published
Some people may consider me to be an optimist but on the other hand, some optimists (like my mother) would consider me to be a bit of a pessimist. Why? Because I am what I consider to be an optimistic realist. This means that I try to not allow my...
The Burlap Bag
Published
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,...
Joy Unspeakable Joy
Published
An email today from a friend reminded me of an incident that occurred back in December 2009. I was lying in a hospital bed recovering from a ruptured brain aneurysm. Due to my injury I was pretty detached to what was going on around me. Except for a...
But God Didn't Help Me!
Published
From the time I was a little girl, I heard this saying: "God helps those, who help themselves." It is commonly believed this quote is from the Bible but it is not. A fable that is now known as Hercules and the Waggoner which is credited to...
The Bad Tooth
Published
A while back, I had learned that I had some root cavities. I have never had cavities before so this was a new... sigh... adventure for me. It was determined that the damage to two of my teeth is minimal. They can be filled and hopefully saved. The...
The Scars In Our Lives
Published
It happened just after I'd had my first chemo infusion back in February 2008. I had been warned that since my immune system was compromised, I had to use the utmost care not to hurt myself so I avoided using knives and other sharp objects. Then it...
The Pen In My Hand
Published
My second grade teacher walked over to the blackboard and pointed to a picture that was taped to it. "When you finish your morning work, I want you to write a story about this picture." A strange little thrill went through me when she said...
Angels Watching Over Me
Published
A call from my husband late yesterday afternoon sent a chill through me. I hung up the phone and with tears streaming down my face began to praise God for protecting him. I could have very easily been receiving a phone call from the police or a...
Trusting Jesus...No Matter What!
Published
An old hymn is running though my mind this evening. I am listening to it right now as I write this blog. I had a different picture in mind for this blog but as I was looking for it, I came across this one and stopped in my tracks. You see, there are...
Absolutely Nothing Can Separate Us From The Love Of God
Published
This morning, I was reading a blog that had been written five weeks ago by my friend, @blessings2you, who has been in intensive care for the past two weeks. In his blog entitled What Does It Mean To Be More Than A Conqueror he wrote: There is no doubt...
Under His Shadow
Published
After a phone call this evening, I found myself reading these words once again: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him...
The King's Invitation
Published
In the twenty-second chapter of Matthew, Jesus tells us that the kingdom of heaven is like certain king who sent his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding. They refused to come. Again the king extends the invitation. "Everything...
When All Around My Soul Gives Way
Published
I am half a continent away from both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. There are others here who have far greater knowledge of the terrible storms that can come up suddenly at sea, though I do know about tornadoes! I have also frequently visited...
The Microphone Cord
Published
I had watched him do it hundreds of times for over 25 years. After an event, the mic cables would be disconnected and carefully laid out in front of the stage, across the room or down a hallway. Then they would be coiled and placed in the appropriate...
Let Me Know If I Can Help And Other Things NOT To Say
Published
Often the first words that come out of our mouths when we learn that a friend or their spouse or their child has become critically ill or injured is to say, "Let me know if (how) I can help." It sounds like a nice thing to say and don't...
God's Positioning System
Published
I drove my friend Beth to work early this morning and returned to her house just as the eastern sky was beginning to light up. Beth lives out in the country and as I turned off the interstate and began the five mile journey down a dark and narrow...
A Heart For Ministry
Published
It is late and my friend Beth is preparing packages for shipping before she heads off to bed after a difficult and draining day. She does not know it but I am watching her. After preparing her invoices and labels, she adds a handwritten note. Then she...
A True Friend
Published
Tonight my friend is battling for his life in ICU and I am finding myself reflecting about what it means to be a true friend. We throw that word friend around a lot. We say that someone is our "friend" but are they or are they merely an...
