Standing With Our Hands Open And Extended

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!

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...
I'm Melting In Tropical Minnesota

God Hears Our Every Prayer

It was a late fall afternoon in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains back in 1978. Two of my friends invited me to join them. They were going to climb a nearby hill which was rather high and steep just because it was there. To my "great...
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...
Walking Beside The Critically Ill

I first came face to face with critical illness when I was 14 years old. I will never forget that day. It was fall and I was a sophomore in high school. I had just come home from school when my dad came through the front door. He asked me to sit down....
Thank You For Being A Friend
Published
I got a message today from a CB friend. The guilty party knows who she is! She was a bit concerned about me and just wanted to check-in with me. The reality is God knew I needed to hear from her. I was going through a "bump" in the road at...
Taking The Time To Learn To Love People
Published
One of the ahem...."planks" that falls down and blocks my view sometimes is called "snap judgments". I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm not the only person that runs into this plank occasionally if not a semi-regular basis....
Am I Receiving Or Rejecting God's Extended Hands?
Published
My oldest and dearest friend called me up earlier this week. We go way back to high school and now we once again live in the same community. She was heartbroken. She and her husband are a part of a small Bible study group within their church. One of...
He's My Knight In Shining Armor!

Within every woman is a girl who's heart beats faster at the thought of a "knight in shining armor" coming to her rescue. Oh, there are those women who pretend they don't care. There are even those women who will completely deny ever...
Learning A New Way To Live

Last August, just about the time I thought "normal" might be within my grasp, I learned I had a second chronic illness triggered by the treatment of the first one; diabetes. Great. Two chronic illnesses diagnosed eight months apart. This...
Gifts Can Come In Strange Packages But They're Still A Gift
Published
All the blogs/comments about the weather got me to thinking about winter. For all of my complaining about the recent sub-zero stretch up here in Minnesota, I fully realize the value of winter. Yes, it can be a very dark and dismal time. It's cold,...
A January Thaw And A Promise

I've been too cold to do much of anything lately. As I sit here typing this, the outside temperature is -29. Fortunately the winds are calm right now so it actually feels warmer than what it is. When you've been at these temperatures for...
A Burnt Pot Of Beef Stew--Just A Little Reminder Of God's Provision

Running The Race With Patience

God Says You Are Worth It
Published
I was re-reading the account of the Flood today. Whenever I read about the flood, I get this mental image in my mind. I imagine water covering the earth as it shakes and trembles under earthquakes and eruptions far greater than we could ever imagine...
The Power Of Human Touch For The Giver As Well As The Receiver
Published
In one of my recent blogs, The Power Of The Human Touch, I wrote about the impact touch has on an individual who is suffering. Granted, you do need to take care in doing this, especially if you don't have much of a relationship with the individual...
