Being an Israelite

Today I am an Israelite. It’s an embarrassing thing to admit.  For one thing, the Israelites definitely don’t come off looking good in the Old Testament.  They are the ones in the Bible that I love to roll my eyes at.  Like really?  How could they say that?  How could...

Solving Problems

Problems.  We all have them.  Some are bigger than others, but they are a part of life.  The problems that have loomed over me recently are a tree that was leaning over and going to hit my neighbor’s garage when it fell if we didn’t take care of it and my car being in...

Seeing Through My Sunglasses

I never spend a lot of money on sunglasses.  The last expensive pair I got was some Ray Ban Aviators in the late ‘80’s that I still have.  Since then it’s been cheap pairs, including several $8 Ray Ban copies I got in China. But, I’ll confess, I like nice things.  I...

Taking God at His Word

A couple of weeks ago, I was convicted by a first century royal official from Capernaum. My pastor is going through the Book of John and that particular week we were in    John 4:43-54 which includes the story of this man.  His son is very sick - at the point of death...

You are . . . a Warrior

Have you ever thought about what your purpose is as a woman?  Not in your personal role (wife, mother, aunt, sister, daughter, etc.) but as a woman in general.  When God created woman, why did He create her and how does that relate to us today? The answer to this...

Opportunities

“There are so many opportunities today, Lord." It was early on a Thursday morning, and I was praying about my day.  As I pondered what was in my schedule, I prayed over it.  Leading a corporate Bible study that morning.  Lunch with a young woman who had started...

Thoughts on Celebration

It’s a fun time to live in North Carolina.  Our NFL team is going to the Super Bowl!  It’s an event that has united everyone – Tarheel, Wolfpack, and Blue Devil – in rejoicing and supporting the Carolina Panthers. Probably the biggest point of conversation about the...

Messing Up

I messed up the other day. I had called AAA about finally getting my husband’s car towed back home from the dealership where it sat about an hour away from our house.  (See here for the December post when the car broke down.)  We pay for 100 miles of free towing and...

The Great Adventure of a New Year

Almost everyone loves the start of a new year.  A clean slate, a fresh start, a chance to change (or resolutions to anyway!), and a sense of expectancy and hope.   For Christians, that last one should be even more true - actually should be true every day - because we...
