Halloween Blessings

Today is Halloween. I love Halloween. I love carving jack o’lanterns. I loved it when I was a kid, even though Mama had to drive us ten miles into town to knock on doors of the people she knew. I loved it when I had my own house, but not my own children, and got … Continue reading »

Are You Ready?

Fall weather in Georgia is anything, but predictable. I was huddling under a blanket at a football game on Friday night and then I was sweating buckets on Sunday afternoon on a walk I took, wishing I had a bottle of water. This volatility of the weather is nothing new to me. It could be … Continue reading »

What Can You Do?

  Perhaps one of the most famous speeches ever written was John F. Kennedy’s speech that contained the mantra, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?” It was his inaugural speech and it was written in 1961. He asked all Americans to ask themselves that … Continue reading »

Are There Dumb Questions?

I used to believe that there are no dumb questions. I want people around me to feel free to ask anything that is on their mind. Now that I have been a substitute teacher for eight years, I have changed my mind. There are some questions that are dumb, mainly because the person asking them … Continue reading »

Use Me

I recently received a text from a friend of mine that read, “Hi, wanted to tell you something. I was looking for an old e-mail, but instead I landed on one that explained Daniel 8, the angel. You are being used. Have a good day.” Of course I couldn’t resist. My reply was, “By whom?” … Continue reading »

That’s Who We Are

We recently had a new family move in down the street from us. They moved here to Georgia, from New York. I made a plate of brownies and gathered the family to go pay them a, “welcome to the neighborhood visit.” When the husband opened the door and I told him why we were there, … Continue reading »

Feeding Yourself First

If you have ever traveled on an airplane before, you have had to sit through the safety video. Just for the record, I always pay attention to those, not because I’m a nerd who always follows the rules, (which I kind of am), but because I was sitting next to an air traffic controller one … Continue reading »

What is Your Ministry?

A friend of mine and I were sitting in the car rider line yesterday hashing out faith questions and religion. She is fairly new to the faith and she has lots of questions and a few complaints. For example, she asked me today how long she would be considered new? That’s a good question, one … Continue reading »

Can You Feel God?

My family visited a church last Sunday. It was small. I know small isn’t cool these days. The mega-church is where it’s at. But, my hubby and I are traditionalists. We like small. We realized long ago that we kind of swim upstream where society is concerned. We also decided that we are okay with … Continue reading »

To All of the Prayer Warriors

Last Tuesday, I wrote a post about prayer warriors and who qualifies as one, and the importance of them. I then asked my readers to please pray for a woman named Carolyn who had been called to go to Sierra Leone to help with education in the Ebola outbreak. You can read that post here, … Continue reading »
