Ahem... May I have everyone's attention please? Okay, I know I would get everyone's attention better if I had a sword in my hand and this was written in pink letters in all caps but since John does not allow swords, pink letters and all caps...
On Whom Do You Stand?

Earlier today, @Bethy and I were talking about favorite Christmas carols. No, The Ukrainian Bell Carol otherwise known as The Carol of the Bells is not my very favorite Christmas carol. I just thought it might get us thinking about a carol or carols...
Three Years Later...

Three years ago... Earlier today, I noted the date. December 13th. My mind went back to December 13, 2007 at around 4:00 p.m. I remember how another teacher took my students out to the bus along with her class so I could call pathology before they...
One Year Later

I took today off as I wanted to make it a day of reflection. Less than hours from now will mark the one year anniversary of day I went to sleep as usual and woke up battling for my life. I realize that many have heard the story. Indeed, a number of...
Oh What Joy!
Published
In one of my recent blogs , the comments turned to the sharing of favorite Christmas carols and songs. While sometimes we might have a favorite song simply because we like the way it sounds, there are times when a song has a particular meaning to us....

What Are You Willing To Sacrifice?

They're Back... Minnesota White Christmas Kits

I Am Responsible For Me

The Milestones In Our Lives
Published
On December 3, 2007, I sat staring at a message on my computer which alerted me to the fact that I had a tumor growing within me and there was an 85% chance it was breast cancer. I'd just been with friends celebrating my 47th birthday the night...
When We Pray...
Published
There is something which many people claim to be prayer but I do not believe it is. At least I do not believe God honors it as such. It involves selfishness and making bargains with God. "If you do this for me God, then I will do this for...
What Are You Willing To Give?
Published
The young man eagerly ran to Jesus and cast himself down at Jesus' feet. The young man was wealthy whereas Jesus was the son of a poor carpenter who wandered through the countryside with no place to call his own. Do we really understand that this...

Last night during a discussion in chat with @abelajohnb and @shanijane, I discovered that CB officially opened on November 16, 2006. This morning I saw that an official announcement had been made in regards to that which in turn has led me to writing...
The House That God Is Building

Earlier today, I was trying to find a quote by C.S. Lewis which I wanted to forward to a friend. While I did find my quote, I came across another quote from Mere Christianity which I would like to share here. Lewis writes: "Imagine yourself as a...
Without Any Reservations

St. Augustine's Pears

A Winter Wonderland

I awakened this morning to a world that was transformed from an ugly brown into the winter wonderland you see in the picture. By the way, the object to the right in the picture is not a bush. It is the limb from a tree which usually is high in the sky...
Love Means Wanting To Say I'm Sorry
Published
There is a well known phrase which says Love means never having to say I'm sorry. Really? I think that phrase should be rewritten to say Love means wanting to say I'm sorry. Early in our marriage, my husband illustrated this for me...
