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...
My God Is Mighty To Save
Published
For the past few days I've been listening to the song Mighty To Save by Laura Story a lot. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. I decided to follow Jesus forty years ago and I've been doing it ever since. I wish I could say that I have...
What Kind Of Firefighter Are You?
Published
My pastor used an analogy today which I really liked and I want to pass it on as food for thought. While we are saved by grace there comes a time when we are also judged according to our works. 1 Corinthians 3:11-13 (NLT). Some may be tempted to say,...
A Quiet And Gentle Spirit
Published
I just returned from the funeral of an 87 year-old beautiful princess of God. She was a quiet, unassuming woman with a beautiful smile. Her death did not make the headlines. As her pastor said at her funeral, the world would not build a monument to...
Who Do People See When They Look At Me?
Published
Who do people see when they look at me? This is a very sobering question. In order to answer it, I guess I first need to ask myself who are they supposed to see? Galatians 2:20 says: I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but...
The Gift That Keeps On Giving
Published
Today I got to do something I've wanted to do for some time. One Saturday a month, people at my church volunteer to serve lunch to the families a Ronald McDonald House. When we first started doing this, I was unable to go due to some prior...
Public Education Under Fire: An Inside Look
Published
Since the late 1960's America's public schools have really taken a beating. Unfortunately, a lot of it has come from Christians. As a Christ-Follower who works in a public school district, I have really felt the criticism (and fire) from other...
Set Your Eyes On Your Goal
Published
I have a student who is an absolute joy to work with. He is only seven years old but he already has a clear-cut goal. He wants to be very successful in school. He has some obstacles. He lives in the inner-city. The poverty-rate at his school is 70%....
Our Connection To God Never Fails
Published
It started last evening. I tried to hop on a well-known breast cancer sound-off board which I haunt. Oh no. I got a strange looking screen with an error message which was written in big, ominous-looking letters. Oops. I must have made some sort of...
Remember Who Is In Control...No Matter What!
Published
I looked dismally at the results from the blood tests I had to have every two weeks prior to chemo. I could look at them online on my electronic medical chart and I had printed out the current one as well as the previous ones and brought them with me...
Get Your Regular Exams By The Holy Spirit
Published
I'm fast coming up on the one year anniversary of that fateful mammogram which revealed I had breast cancer (November 21). That means I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of getting the news . Try as you might, with these anniversaries...
If We Truly Love Jesus
Published
When I was a child, my mother was involved in Children's Ministries. I remember one particular story she used to share. An elderly woman is reading a book and she comes across a poem which goes something like this: If you truly love Jesus, Then do...
Joy In The Midst Of Darkness
Published
It was 1984. I was heading down to Iowa for a family get together and feeling a bit anxious. One of my grandmother's sisters had been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) a few years earlier. I'd heard that her condition was...
The Precious Gift Of Teardrops
Published
"What do you mean I don't have enough tears? I stared at the ophthalmologist for a moment. I'd gone in for a routine eye exam. Right before starting chemo I had noticed I had developed a bad habit of pulling off my uh...bifocals in order...
There Are Families And Then There Are Families
Published
A few years ago, a co-worker asked me if I was going anywhere over a long weekend. I happened to mention I was going out of state for a family get-together. She expressed her sympathy. I had to tell her that I was looking forward to it. In my case...
Pay Attention And Follow The Leader
Published
Last winter, one of our middle school students died from influenza. As a result of that, there has been a push to get as many children immunized as possible this year. Our school, understandably, was selected as an immunization site. Parents could...
