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...
Do It All In The Name Of The Lord Jesus!
Published
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 (NIV) As I read this verse this morning, I started to think about what my world would look like if I...
Remember God Provides, Even In Times Like These
Published
This morning I was standing to the left of the platform with another couple. Other teams of two to three people were spread out across the front of the church. The 11:00 service was concluding and the prayer teams had just come forward to pray with...
Jesus Christ Is Our Life!
Published
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and...
Focusing On That Which Really Matters
Published
I'm learning to try to focus on that which really does matter in life. Oh, there's the things which I always thought were important but that doesn't necessarily mean they really are. To tell you the truth, I don't have a whole lot of...
This Princess Is Wearing Boxing Gloves
Published
Wham! It hit me just the other day while I was in the middle of making lunch. I started to shake and cried out to my Father immediately. I stopped shaking and sent out an alert for prayer. Just the very act of crying out to the Father and requesting...
Everybody Do Your Job-Some Second Grade Wisdom
Published
I've never really thought about it before but in some respects, my second grade class is a lot like the church. My second grade class is diverse. So is the church. My second grade class is made up of many different individuals with their own ways...
Let All That I Am Praise The LORD!
Published
I've been browsing through blogs and praise reports the past few days and I am simply rejoicing. I have to tell you I can scarcely contain myself as I read about what God is doing. I'm not talking about things He did two or three thousand...
Thoughts On A Blustery Winter-Like Night
Published
The cold front slammed into our town just as my husband and I arrived at church. We knew it was coming so we were prepared for the onslaught. Snowflakes filled the air and my husband started to rehearse his "It's too cold here and I can't...
