How do you see someone who is being a thorn in your flesh? I am struck by David’s words in 2 Samuel, Chapter 16 when Shimei, a relative of Saul, curses him and pelts him with pebbles  David, God’s anointed king, could have ordered the man to be imprisoned or killed. But instead, he tells his soldiers to leave him […]

Rose Glow

Fri, 23 May 2014 13:07:20 +0000

A while back, my great-niece made me this rose. Rather ingenious, it is a silk flower and greenery glued around a tea light. She painstakingly hollowed out the rose, inserted the tea light, and then glued it all back together. You have to flip the switch underneath before it can softly glow from the inside out. […]

Why Go to Church?

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 16:39:48 +0000

Do Christians need the Church more than the Church needs Christians? Absolutely. God established Church. Judeo-Christian beliefs from Genesis to Revelation see the faithful as God’s people- corporately. Paul said in 1 Corinthians that we are a Body. A body is designed to have all of  it’s parts to function properly. Each is different, but important.. The root […]

Next Sunday begins the journey through the gates. With praises and loud voices we wave palm branches to welcome Jesus into the gates of Jerusalem. But, within a few days, we watch as his ministry on earth appears to crumble. Plots against him escalate. He and his disciples hide out in an upper room to […]

A Grave Situation

Sat, 05 Apr 2014 13:33:08 +0000

Have you ever felt buried? I have. The hole seemed so deep, yet themroeI tried toclimb my way out,the more I kept sinking.Exhausted, physically, emotionally and spititually, I lay as if paralyzed. Stress, job pressures, finances, loss, sorrow, poor self-image – they all were shovels of dirt thrown on top of me, suffocating any positive outlook, trapping […]

It’s In the Giving, not the Giver

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:42:29 +0000

Two blog  posts  hit my inbox today–  one from an anti-trafficking missionary, another from a writer of devotionals. One in the field, one at a desk. Same message: it can’t be about you. “Your eyes and heart need to be constantly on Jesus. Not on the circumstance or the evil that you know exists, but […]

Dreading It

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 19:22:11 +0000

Today, I have to go to the dentist. Just saying the word raises my blood pressure. My chest tightens a touch…well more than that. I have a cavern in one tooth. I can feel it with my tongue. Probably it is not more than a pin prick, it just seems that huge. Logic tells me […]

Dusting Time

Thu, 06 Mar 2014 14:00:52 +0000

Lent began yesterday, March 5th. I grew up giving up things for Lent– like sweets, soft drinks, or chewing gum. So I can relate to this story I found online when constructing the bulletins for the Lenten services at the church where I work: “Some years ago a friend of mine told me that he […]

Good Intentions

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:42:23 +0000

 by Julie B Cosgrove “I know he meant to help.” Jane shook the packet of sweetener like a red flag in front of a bull. “But he folded all the towels wrong. I had to redo them all so they’d hang right on the racks in the bathroom before our guests arrived. I barely had time […]

It’s the Waiting…

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 17:01:59 +0000

My friend wrung the Kleenex between her fingers. “I know God is going bestow His blessings on this situation.” She heaved her shoulders and dabbed her eyes. “But it’s the waiting that’s so hard.” Oh, how true. Studies show people get antsy after 30 seconds of waiting for the light to change to green, for […]
