Our Greatest Gift
Published
There is no greater gift than the one God has given us through His son, Jesus Christ. There is no way that we could possibly ever give back to God anything worthy of His great and amazing gift of love, our redemption. Yet we do have something which...
A Lesson From A Kitchen Window
Published
In hind sight, I now realize something was wrong. The window had always seemed a bit difficult to open. However, all of my windows are rather heavy and require a bit of effort from me. I'd also learned from my neighbors that the previous owners...
Times Of Refreshing
Published
It was a long winter here in Minnesota and on it's heels came an unusually cold and rainy spring. The first snow was in November. That melted but by December, the snow came to stay. We sort of skipped our annual mid-winter thaw this year and so I...
A Candle In The Dark
Published
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, then walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable. --Brennan Manning We...
The Finish Line
Published
From the myths of ancient Greece, comes the story of Atalanta, the fastest mortal in the world. Her father, who was a king, pressured her into selecting a husband from amongst her many suitors who were enamored by both her beauty, position and wealth....
A Living Faith
Published
Today's Daily Bible Verse here at CB caught my eye. It says: Faith versus works and works versus faith seems to be an endless, ongoing debate amongst Christians and yet I can't help but wonder why. Doesn't James make it quite clear...
Where He Leads
Published
The lamb contentedly wandered about the lovely green meadow. What a peaceful wonderful place this was! There was delicious grass which also made a soft bed for her to lie down in when she was tired. There were lovely shade trees to rest beneath if the...
Out In The Desert
Published
Earlier this morning, as I read a blog entitled Wandering In The Desert by Arisensleeper, I found myself contemplating my own desert journey. There have been a number of times in my life when I have felt that I was wandering about in the desert, but...
The Measuring Cup
Published
I have never been much of a bread eater until I started making my own. Then the truth was revealed. It wasn't that I did not like bread. The fact of the matter is, I'm a bread snob. When this truth was revealed to me last September, I...
The Chains Of Unforgiveness
Published
This week, while at a women's conference, I listened to a message on forgiveness. It did not center upon our need for God to forgive us. It was about our need to forgive others. Whenever I hear a message about forgiveness, my mind always goes...
When Everything Is Failing
Published
My friend @ Kiwibird must gently remind me at times to "Let go and let God." In all honesty, I do not always do that so well. I think we could all say that. When things are going well, we love to stand in church and sing praise and worship...
The Thoughts Of The Wise
Published
I suffered brain damage due to a subarachnoid hemorrage after a ruptured brain aneurysm in December 2009. This has had an impact on my cognitive skills as well as short-term memory. I will be zooming along just fine when unexpectedly my "apple...
Dwelling In The Secret Place Of The Most High
Published
He who dwells 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 I will trust. Psalm 91:1-2 (NKJV) There have been so many times over the...
The DWIW Christian
Published
Are you a DWIW Christian? To answer that question, you must understand what a DWIW Christian is. The DWIW Christian often attends church regularly. They may even be well-versed in the Bible. You may see them rushing about doing good deeds and even...
Worrying About Tomorrow
Published
This is one of those verses which I have known since I was a girl and have committed to memory. However, it is also one which I must remind myself of time and time again. While there are times when I am content to leave things in God's hands,...
When You Cry Out In The Night
Published
She awakened suddenly in the middle of the night believing that there was a scary monster after her. Surrounded by the darkness, her heart racing, the frightened child screamed. A moment later, she was sobbing in the arms of her father who rushed into...
You Are Blessed!
Published
At first glance, this statement seems to be a paradox. Peter says that if you suffer for righteousness sake, you are blessed and you are not to be afraid of those who terrify you. Huh? Human understanding says that if you are suffering you definitely...
The Next Day...
Published
The sixth chapter of John opens up with Jesus doing an amazing miracle. He feeds 5,000 men plus women and children from five small loaves of bread and two fish. Not only is there plenty for all, there are even leftovers. John tells us there were...
Don't Give Up!
Published
Earlier today, I smiled as I caught sight of the Daily Bible Verse here at CB. It is a passage I am very familiar with. In fact, I have a framed copy of this passage hanging above my desk. I have often turned to the fourth chapter of Second...
Why Do You Believe?
Published
In the fourth chapter of John, a Samaritan woman encounters Jesus at the well. There are no crowds, there are no great miracles performed. They are simply engaged in conversation. During the conversation, Jesus reveals that He knows intimate details...
Pretty On The Outside
Published
Many years ago, I read a newspaper article about some houses built across the street some of the lakes which are a part of Chain of Lakes District in my hometown of Minneapolis. The city is known as "The City of Lakes" for good reason....
The House On The Rock And The House On The Sand Revisited

The parable of the Wise Man and the Foolish Man which Jesus told, is a story which many people first heard in Sunday School. Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the...
On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!
Published
The classroom was filled with the noise of children busily engaged in working on their projects. Without a word, the teacher suddenly raised her hand high into the air. Several children noticed her, stopped what they were doing and raised their hands...
The Rain Puddle
Published
The children were drawn like moths to a light when they saw the large puddle on the playground. They didn't think about the consequences of getting wet when the temperature hovered near freezing and the wind was blowing. They only saw the water...
The Prayer Shawl
Published
I remember it like it was yesterday even though it was five years ago. While I was going through chemo, I attended a one-day class for women with cancer called “Look Good, Feel Better”. We could bring a friend along if we wished so I...
