THE COST

My heart skips a beat at these words: “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me”.  Have you ever thought about that? What if His Father has said ‘Yes“? Never had anything of such magnitude, been done before.  History was being made.  His Story was making it possible for me to […]

TO ERR IS HUMAN

Over the weekend, I had reason to remember the words, “to err is human’.  These words are part of a longer proverb, ‘to err is human; to forgive, divine’ and was penned by Alexander Pope in Essay on Criticism.   It occurred to me for the first time really, that these words are usually applied to […]

OH LORD, HEAR! OH LORD, FORGIVE!

I love to read. I remember as a child I would be so caught up in my books, that I would not hear when I was called.  Needless to say, you know I got into trouble every time that happened.  My favorites at the time were mystery books, especially Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. I […]

CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES

When I was younger, I believed that the Lord would bless only the things I do willingly.  If I did not feel like doing something, then I should not do it, because after all, the Lord knows my heart.  He knew I did not want, nor did I feel like doing, whatever it was that […]

I DON’T DESERVE IT, BUT…

Happy – Feeling or showing pleasure or contentment (Oxford Online Dictionary).  Why Lord, do people say You do not care about our happiness? Why do they make it sound like You do not care about our happiness?  Don’t they know that You came so that we might have/live life abundantly? You are Creator of the Universe!! […]

FEBRUARY FAVORITES

March is here.  The third month of the year has begun.  How are the goals for year coming along? What about the ‘word’ for the year? Are we in the process of ‘becoming’? I love the end of a month and the beginning of another.  It allows me to evaluate my life, to take stock […]

CAN I GET AN AMEN?

Yesterday, the sun was out, there was no snow on the ground. It was about 47° and it was a fantastic day, well except Tammy might not agree with me. She lives in Trinidad and the average temperature there is 80°.  While I was out running, I thought about Tammy.  I wondered what she would […]
