A Friend Loves At All Times

The word friend has a tendency to drop casually from our lips. Far too often the person we call friend is merely an acquaintance. We know their name, we know their kids' names. We might even know the name of their dog! We may know where they live....
It's So Good To Walk Together
Published
It seems as if people are becoming more and more isolated with the passage of time. This simply is not the way God intends for things to be. We are designed to be social beings. We are designed to laugh together, cry together and walk together. So,...
What Is God Trying To Teach Me?

When we find ourselves suddenly sliding uncontrollably down the mountainside and onto a dark path which seems to have no way of escape, our initial response is to scream "God, get me out of here now!" That's understandable. This is the...
It's Better To Be Wandering In The Desert With God

Dear CB Friends, I wish to thank those of you to my south and west for your generosity in sending relief my way. Minnesota is beginning to unthaw. Oops, I slipped into my native tongue for a moment and we are only supposed to use English on CB....
The Music Which Taught Me How To Live
Published
The music of our youth often tends to follow us in a myriad of ways throughout our lives. Some of it can be good and some of it can be bad. I was born in 1960 which means I was born during a time of radical changes. Although I'm at the tail end of...
Choosing To Do Marriage God's Way

He stood before me on that October morning shifting self-consciously, staring at me intently through those green eyes. He really does have nice eyes, I thought. They reminded me of my dad's. He had beautiful green eyes. Mine were brown but changed...
A Lesson In Christian Life From Penguins?????

What can I say, I learn from the strangest things! You'll have to excuse me as I spend a large chunk of my time as the lone adult in an over-crowded room filled with seven and eight year olds. What do you expect? I live in a very strange world....
Living By Faith In The Fast Lane

"What do you mean my front end is going to fall off?" I demanded. My husband silently waited for our friend to reply. We've known Jay for 23 years. He and my husband worked at the same college, although they were in different...
Standing With Our Hands Open And Extended

Like Breathing Out And Breathing In Let Us Pray!

Passing Down The Legacy Of Faith

My son works for a major retailer in addition to going to college full time. The other day, he called me up "just to talk". After making some small talk, he got to the heart of the matter. "People around here are really scared, Mom....
Nothing Can Rob Us Of Our Joy!

I've been in a rather strange mood today as some of my friends at CB have found out. I'd apologize except I'm not the least bit sorry Seriously, it is so good to laugh with friends. It's been a weekend full of laughter for me. I think...
Living In The Sufficiency Of Grace
Published
A song kept running through my mind today. Of course, I couldn't find the CD it had been on as it's been a few years since I've heard it and there's been a purging and move since I last listened to it. So, of course, I had to see if I...

Healing From The Inside Out

I struggled to get up as hands held me down tightly. I could feel fists pounding me mercilessly. I remember dimly hearing voices speaking in casual tones which grew fainter as they moved away from me. It was the voices of my friends. They had...
When The Sun Slips Behind A Cloud...
Published
We're going to have those kinds of days. Some Christians don't want to admit that. They insist that if the sun ever slips behind a cloud you must not be walking with The Son. They forget that over and over again, the Bible warns us that we...
