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…

IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE…

This, ladies and gentlemen, is our bathroom sink.  This is our cat, Jazz.  This isn’t my doing, I promise.  I did not put her in there, anyone with a cat knows, cats NEVER do what we want them to do (reminds me of people).  Why is Jazz in our bathroom sink? We have been blessed…

SHHH… DON’T SAY IT

I talk too much! I think it is somehow programmed in my DNA. I am prone to speak. Listening is a skill; I am still working on it. I talk to my husband, my children, friends and family. I even talk to myself, when no one is around.  Thankfully the walls are not talking back,…

WHERE ARE YOU, LORD?

Lord, are you there? I remember asking that question as a child.  Are You there? Are You real, or a figment of my imagination? When I was about ten or eleven years old, I saw a dead body.  I had never seen a dead body before.  She was in her early to mid twenties, we…

HERE WE GO AGAIN…

What’s the point of an argument, Lord? Who wins? Is that the point of the argument? For someone to be victorious? A winner and a loser? Although most arguments begin with a point, I believe as it continues it becomes about winning and losing.  Words volleying back and forth and back forth.  Beginning by making…

GOD’S PORTRAIT OF A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

A few years ago, in our Sunday school class, the ladies studied out of a book entitled ‘God’s Portrait of a Beautiful Woman‘ by Dorthy Davis.  GOD’s Portrait; not A portrait…implying that any portrait will do, not Benny’s portrait, nor is it even my portrait.  God’s portrait of a beautiful woman! Would she look like me? Would…

RUN, BABY, RUN!

When I was around fifteen years old, I spontaneously decided to participate in my school’s track and field sports event.  I was not a runner.  At the time, I only ever ran if someone was chasing me.  I had not taken part in any of the training activities, prior to the games.  I didn’t know…

LET’S START HERE!

Long, long ago, when I was a child, we regularly participated in a competitive game called Bible Boxing.  Don’t worry, there was no bloodshed, just my pride if I lost (I am just a tad bit competitive).  This activity was based on Bible verse memorization. You had to KNOW your verses!  This was not a…

WHY WAS MARY CHOSEN?

What made Mary so spectacular? Why was she chosen to be the mother of Immanuel, our Savior? Why did she stand out? She must have known that there was a possibility, that Joseph would not marry her, when he found out she was pregnant.  Yet she chose to obey the Lord, in spite of the…
