Love Is Just Not Words
Published
Tomorrow marks the two year anniversary of the day I learned I had a tumor which turned out to be breast cancer. As with all these "anniversaries" I have a tendency to get rather reflective. The other day I wrote a blog called The...
Committed To Doing Life Together
Published
Doing life together as we do life with God is a phrase I have become very fond of using over the past couple of years. I believe it is an accurate description of the relationship God wants us to have with Him as well as with others, especially those...
We Must Dare To Become Vulnerable
Published
In December 2007, God made it very clear to me that I had to become vulnerable or else! In my case it was not just to one or two people. I had to plaster it up on the internet. I am not suggesting that God is requiring everyone to do that. What I am...
Can We Obtain True Joy And Peace Without Sorrow And Suffering?
Published
Sorrow and Suffering. This is a topic people in general like to steer away from. It is not something we like to think about. We love to read scriptures which make us feel cozy and sing joyous songs. Joy! What a beautiful word! I love talking about the...
The Transcending Love Of God
Published
It was a night of horror. What had begun as an evening celebrating a successful maiden voyage of the Titanic (it was scheduled to arrive in New York harbor two days later) had turned into an unthinkable nightmare. The vessel of whom men had boasted...
The Best Of Good Intentions
Published
Good intentions, we all have them. We think about something and we even say we're going to do but somewhere along the way, we change our mind or we even get distracted. That is what happened to me last night. I'd mentioned in a comment to...
Keep The Porch Light Burning!
Published
Back in July 2007, my son abruptly told me he thought I should blog. I laughed at the very idea of that but it kept going around in my head. I didn't want to just go anywhere though. Any old place did not appeal to me and I didn't want to end...
K's New Chocolate Adventure

It is no secret on this site that I, K , have a vice. I am a...
Moving Beyond Our Past And Looking Towards The Future

On September 16, 1620 a ship called the Mayflower set sail from the...
Let His Little Child Come In
Published
Jesus loves me! He who died heaven's gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, let His little child come in. --Anna B. Warner How vividly I remember that Sunday morning when I knelt down and simply told Jesus I was sorry and asked Him to...
No, We Are Never Alone
Published
Earlier this morning, I was reading a blog called Christianblog Announces A New Polling Feature posted by Christianblog. When I got to the last paragraph I read the following words which jumped out at me: If you are alone today - you are not alone -...
Count Your Many Blessings and See What God Has Done
Published
Sitting here in the semi-darkness, I can almost hear the voice of my grandmother singing: When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed; When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will...
Keep Your Eyes On The Conductor!
Published
Every Tuesday afternoon from 2:45-3:30, my students meet with a music therapist for a class which uses music to teach social skills to children. The curriculum is still being developed by one of our second grade teachers and another music therapist....
A Simple Gift of Love
Published
On Monday morning, when I opened my email, I received two beautiful surprises. To anyone else they would have meant very little but to me, they were far more precious than the richest jewels or the purest gold. You see, they were gifts from the heart...
The Power Of Our Prayers
Published
I sat on the hard church pew swinging my legs back and forth to keep them from falling asleep. My eyes never left the screen however, as I watched the filmstrip which accompanied the audio recording of Ethel Barrett telling a "missionary...
There's Nothing More Precious Than A Gift Of Love
Published
A number of years ago, one of my students shyly slipped a little card into my hand right before Christmas. I opened it up and learned that her parents had purchased a "gift of a llama" through Heifer International in honor of 6 people. I was...
A Few Thoughts About Church
Published
I have always been associated with a body of believers. I have never been an unchurched Christian. Even when my husband and I felt it was time to change churches a few years back, we prayed and God led us to a new church immediately. There was no...
A Little Direction Here Please
Published
I left school on Tuesday morning due to illness. Being like most elementary teachers I balked at the idea of leaving the sub with no plan. In primary education there is much more involved in simply picking up a textbook and teaching a lesson. Plus if...
This Is Why We Never Give Up
Published
Many years ago, as a young wife and mother, God used a passage of scripture to help me focus on Him rather than my circumstances. Ironically, nearly twenty years later, I would type out this passage of scripture, print it out on cardstock (dark pink...
What Will Your Action Be?
Published
Over the past few years I have been shocked and stunned to discover that many Christians seem to believe any suggestion of action on our part means you are placing confidence in yourself rather than in God. I have to tell you, this belief frightens me...
Jesus Christ Is The Source Of Our Joy
Published
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according...
Is It A Disability Or A Challenge?
Published
A few years ago I read a book called Living, Laughing and Loving Life by Dan Miller Dan was struck by polio at the age of 18, right before the vaccine reached the area of Washington where he lived. One of the comments he made in the book about one of...
The Correction of the Holy Spirit
Published
This morning, I was thinking about how the Holy Spirit corrects us in contrast to how we often try to correct one another. Actually in light of some things I've been reading here recently, I've been thinking about it a lot lately. It is hard...
Remembering My Dad On Veteran's Day
Published
I am the daughter of a disabled veteran. The near-fatal injuries he received during the Korean War did not occur in combat or even overseas. They happened here in the U.S. as the fire engine he was on was rushing to the site of a plane crash. Over...

My "child" is a 24 year old, bearded, strapping young man who...
