Crossing Our Jordan

A couple of nights ago, my hubby and I attended our small group get-together from church. We are watching a video about different places in the Holy Land that appear in the Bible. The narrator then ties them in to our modern life. This time our video was about the Jordan River which appears several … Continue reading »

Using the Right and the Left

I love to sing in the choir. It’s like praying, but in a different way than just using words. I recently did a little research on music and how it affects the brain and I learned some fascinating things. People who are not trained to read music, those of us who just love to belt … Continue reading »

The Seemingly Insignificant

A lot gets said about not comparing ourselves to other people. We have no idea what other people have been through to get where they are. We are all God’s own unique creation and we should be focused on Him not them. Can I get an Amen? When we think about comparing ourselves with other … Continue reading »

Be Still and Pray Even on Busy Days

It had been a long day for me. I had been up late the night before waiting for my son’s bus to return from a band exhibition. I had been up since 5:00 AM. As I was driving home from work, I mentally ticked off my to-do list, which included a couple of loads of … Continue reading »

Supernatural Christianity

Last Sunday, I was sitting in church. The announcements had been made. The choir had sung. The scripture passage had been read. The sermon was next.

Trust Without Borders

One of my favorite songs is “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail),” by Hillsong United. It’s all about being called out and answering the call to do things we couldn’t possibly do on our own, but if we rely on God, we can. I especially like to play it on Sunday mornings when I’m getting ready … Continue reading »

Drawn to the Light

Yesterday, my hubby and I were talking to our middle school Sunday school class about Creation. When we try to teach kids about the nature of God, we always start with the Bible. Everyone seems to have their own image of what God is like or what God would do in this situation or that. … Continue reading »

Appreciating the Ordinary

As I was walking my parents’ dogs yesterday, in the incredibly beautiful weather that we have been blessed with recently, I found myself saying a prayer of thanks for my perfectly mundane day. I had gone for a haircut that morning, nothing like a little trim to add a little pep to a girl’s step. … Continue reading »

Finding God in the Chaos

Yesterday was a crazy morning at my house. I had to be at the school for a half-day assignment and I desperately wanted to write my post before I left for work. I like to write in the mornings. It’s quiet and I have the time and peace to reflect. I need quiet to write. … Continue reading »
