He Is The God Of Peace!
Published
Last Monday, I wrote a blog about God being the Darkness-Slayer. I shared about darkness which had settled down around me and threatened me late Saturday evening and into early Sunday morning. I wrote about how God had dispelled the darkness with one...
God Is The Darkness Slayer!
Published
The dark cloud seemed to have swept in with the cold front which moved in early Saturday evening. Temperatures plummeted into the 40's as the rain fell intermittently. My husband and I were headed to a small town where a friend of ours was playing...
Old Habits Die Hard So Pay Attention!
Published
Rats! I'd done it again. You'd think after five and a half months I would have learned by now. I guess I'm a slow learner or perhaps old habits do indeed die hard. While those who know me might disagree, I prefer to think the latter is...
Love Is Not Enough
Published
The moment I typed this title, I wanted to cry out yes it is! We so desperately want love to be enough to fix everything and everybody. If we would just love enough broken hearts would be mended. Horrible baggage people have carried all of their lives...
I Don't Have To, I Want To
Published
Last night my school had their annual ice cream social. On the Thursday before school starts, students and their families are invited to come and meet their new teachers. This year about 55% of the families from my class showed up. That's a better...
Heigh-Ho Heigh-Ho It's Off To Work I Go!
Published
I went on medical leave from teaching on February 29. When I left, I did not know when or if I would be returning. I was hopeful as the biopsy of my sentinel lymph nodes had shown no cancer but who knew what would show up after I finished treatment?...
Dare To Be Vulnerable
Published
No one likes to be vulnerable. When we are vulnerable we put ourselves at risk to be hurt and even destroyed. It feels much safer to put a mask on, build a wall around ourselves and securely bar the door after attaching a large sign which reads...
Reflecting On Where You've Been
Published
As Christians, I believe it is very important for us to take time to reflect back to where we have been. I'm not talking about trying to live in the past. I don't believe that is ever a good thing. Today is the day in which we are living....
I'm Finished With Cancer Treatment
Published
I'm finished. After eight and a half months which includes the initial finding of my tumor as well as treatment, I'm finished. It has been a very long road. At least it seemed that way to me. The flurry of doctor appointments, tests,...
The Path God Has Chosen For Us
Published
Christ Followers often talk about God's direction. We love to quote verses such as Proverbs 3:5-6 Subconsciously we get an image of a lovely flower-lined path with birds singing. We envision ourselves strolling down this perfect path in perfect...
I Am Suspended By Jesus
Published
Today I learned that I woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer about a year before me went into hospice. While her initial tumor was larger than mine, like me she did not have any lymph node involvement. She went through a similar treatment. Things...
Do We Bear The Evidence Of God's Redemption?

Do I bear the evidence of God's redemption? This thought struck me...
To Judge Or Not To Judge
Published
This past winter I read "The Case For The Real Jesus" by Lee Strobel. While doing an interview, he asked about this scripture. The man he was interviewing made the statement that this verse had become the new John 3:16 in today's...
Nothing Is 100% Guaranteed Except...
Published
What About My Guarantee? A woman sat still in disbelief. This couldn't be happening again! She had taken all of the precautions 20 years ago. She had been assured that if she had the surgery she would never have to deal with this again. Those who...
God Hears Our Every Cry
Published
One afternoon, when I was four or five years old, my friend from across the alley came over to play. While playing house, I got the idea that the little closet that jutted out from the wall of my bedroom would make a perfect little house. My friend...
He's With You Every Step Of The Way
Published
It was the summer of 1974. I was thirteen years old and I had been visiting an aunt in Arizona. During my visit, I had an opportunity to attend a Christian camp in Prescott, AZ. A cousin of my mom's was going to be working at that camp. She had...
Little Things Make A Difference
Published
Often when we think about impacting our world, we only think about impacting it with a big bang. While a big bang certainly will draw attention, it is not the only way to make a difference in the world around us. I am not suggesting big projects...
Learning To Work As A Team--Another Lesson From Roller Coaster Building
Published
Each summer I am faced with a challenge. I have to take 14-22 elementary school-aged children who probably don't know each other and get them to work like a well-oiled machine. I have to do this in less than a week. At the end of the week they...
You Have To Follow The Plans
Published
I think it goes like this." My head shot up at these words and I quickly approached the speaker who was adding some K'NeX pieces to the roller coaster section they were working on. There were no K'NeXprints (blueprints) in sight. Before I...
A 2:00 A.M. Surprise
Published
They say that diamonds are a girl's best friend but that's not true in my case. When I was growing up, the denomination to which my family belonged frowned upon the wearing of jewelry. This was apparently quite a trial for many women but I...
False Security
Published
The last week of June, I sat in a room at the radiation treatment center in a major hospital where I'd be doing the final phase of my breast cancer treatment. It had been a long road since my diagnosis back in December 2007 and it would be another...
The Lord God Our Provider
Published
So often when we see, hear or think about the words The Lord God our provider we think in terms of the material world only. While it is true God does provide material needs (note the emphasis on the word needs), those are by no means the only things...
Are You Like Patience Or Passion?
Published
In John Bunyan's classic allegory Pilgrim's Progress, Christian stops by the house of the Interpreter. In one of the rooms, Christian encounters two children. Their names are Patience and Passion. Patience is sitting quietly in a chair....
Standing On God's Promises
Published
For 400 years, the descendants of Israel (Jacob) had lived in Egypt. At first, they were treated as honored guests but with the passage of time, things changed. Eventually, they lost the favored status they'd held and were reduced to the status of...
Ignorance Is Bliss...Or Is It?

This morning I was nervously sitting in a little waiting room with four...
