God Wants To Do Life With Us!
Published
The New Testament is full of accounts of Jesus just doing life with people. We find him at a wedding, we find Jesus down by the Sea of Galilee. He's at Peter's place. He has dinner with Zacchaeus. He's out on the water, literally, as...
God Is Standing In The Gap
Published
So many people are beginning to truly have to learn what it means to walk by faith rather than by sight. One thing which always helps build my faith is to hear the testimonies of what God has done in the lives of others. This is just another reason of...
Living In A Winter Wonderland

Okay...winter seems firmly in place. Although there is just a dusting...
Some Life Lessons From The Second Grade
Published
For those of you who don't know, I teach second grade at a public school in the inner-city. That in itself presents many challenges. I have a student whose mother is a surgeon. I also have a student who lives in a homeless shelter. Most of my...
Remembering The Best Is Yet To Be!
Published
It happened again today. Another breast cancer survivor lost the battle and it makes me feel sad. I didn't really know her aside from some comments we made to each other in cyberspace. I know she had been in Minnesota this past Mother's Day...
Knowing Who You Are In Christ
Published
Oddly enough, one of the toughest things I ever did was look into the mirror after my son shaved my head. While that may not seem like such a big deal to some men, especially those who shave their head on a somewhat regular basis, women will truly...
And To Think God Saw Me
Published
Many years ago, one of my cousins and her husband bought this horrible,...
We're Never Abandoned By God
Published
Early one evening, as my husband and I left the grocery store, we noticed a small group of people surrounding a young couple with a baby. The couple was standing near our car so we got a good view of what was going on. The couple had locked their keys...
The Eye Of The Lord Is Upon His Children
Published
Back in the days before there were cell phones, I stopped by a grocery store early one morning to pick up a few things I was going to take to school that day. I was in a hurry so I quickly made my purchase and headed out to the car. I fumbled through...
Choosing To Trust In God
Published
Walking by faith is not something which just randomly happens. While faith may start out as small as a mustard seed, it will remain small unless you cultivate it. The way you do that is by consciously making a choice to live by faith. Granted, making...
When God Smiles At Us
Published
A blog I read the other day made me think about the things which make God smile. Yes, I believe God smiles. Yes, I know God is a Spirit. Yes, I know all of that, but a smile is much more than just moving up the corners of your mouth. A person can...
Facing Another Year With Anticipation!
Published
Birthdays have never bothered me but if they had; I think after this year I would be eternally cured of that little annoyance. On December 3, 2007, my world was shaken and I was faced with my own mortality. The night before we had been celebrating a...
I Have A Thankful Heart
Published
Last night my son and one of his "brothers" crashed at my house. They were up prepping some of the food for today. It was good the way their laughter filled the house. They love cooking together and I love watching them do it. I cautiously...
Remember To Put God First
Published
The widow carefully gathered sticks in order to build a fire. She stood up at the sound of the voice of the prophet Elijah. He asked her for some water. There had not been any rain for some time. Water was scarce but she knew where she could find...
It Is God Who Arms Me With Strength!
Published
Many times we look at other Christ-Followers who are going through very public storms and wistfully think we could never be half as strong as they are. We forget those people are Christ-Followers just like us. They have the same weaknesses and fears...
A Time To Batten Down The Hatches!
Published
I feel a bit reluctant about writing this as so many people are facing such huge financial challenges right now. We've been pretty fortunate in that my husband and I both work for non-profit educational institutions rather than in the business...
Getting Ready For A Feast!
Published
I've always loved Thanksgiving. It may have something to do with the fact that my birthday falls on Thanksgiving every few years. If this year wouldn't have been a leap year, it would have fallen on Thanksgiving this year, in fact. Actually, I...
Confronting Foot-In-Mouth Disease
Published
As sin survivors, we always need to be on guard for recurrences. Just like there are many different types of cancers, there are also many different types of sin which we are susceptible to. While the particular sin which we may be more prone to...
I Was Sick And You Visited Me
Published
From February 29 until June 6, meals arrived at my home every two weeks for five days after each chemo treatment. This was a tremendous blessing to my husband and I. On the first day, we would arrive home exhausted since my chemo infusions took most...
Today Is A Gift From God
Published
I'm looking out the window right now. As I gaze at the little woods behind my house, I'm initially struck by how dismal everything looks. It's cold outside. The trees which had been so green are standing black and bare against the sky. The...
Yet I Still Belong To You
Published
Wrapped up in pride and full of arrogant words, I put on a show for all to see. Disdainfully setting myself above others, carefully averting my eyes from the mirror of truth it is easy to believe the lies of flattering lips which are nothing but...
I Will Always Have Hope!
Published
These words on the page jumped out at me: But as for me, I will always have hope, I will praise you more and more. Psalms 71:14 (NIV) What a bold declaration! Yet, as I thought about it, I think it is a statement which is critical to make. You cannot...
God Says You're Worth It!
Published
Every day we're bombarded with images of what it means to be worthy. Society tries to teach us that you have to be one of the beautiful people and then paints a picture of what that type of person looks like. You have to have the right job, the...
When We Just Don't Understand...
Published
Last night, as I was reading through some postings on another site, my heart suddenly froze. Oh no, not again. I read through the post carefully again and then let my eyes drop to the signature at the bottom of the page. It was a post written by a...
God Hears The Cries Of The Righteous
Published
Last week I had written about a well-known forum for breast cancer patients and survivors had gone offline. At the time, I had written about how God always keeps the communication line between us and him open. Well, on Thursday the forum was still...
