Light in the Darkness

I believe many people nowadays would say we live in the dark ages.  I’ve heard, “our future looks bleak,” “we’ve dug ourselves into a mess that we can’t get out of,” or “I have no hope anymore.”  I’ve made similar comments, but they lessened when I started focusing on...

Don’t Give Up!

The world we live in expects instant results.  Just pop a pill for immediate relief … lose 20 pounds in a weekend … the list goes on and on.  The truth is, there are some things that aren’t cured overnight.  One of them is mental illness. There have been two cases...

Pro-Life And Proud Of It

I am unashamedly pro-life.  I don’t apologize as I proudly stand in defense for life.  However, this wasn’t always the case. I faced a crisis pregnancy decades ago.  It was shortly after Roe v. Wade became national law.  Not wanting to disappoint my parents, I...

Hope Is The Cure

I read about a new Harvard study in Forbes recently which investigated the health and mental health of children and teenagers who were raised with religious or spiritual practices. I am not surprised by what they found. According to the study, children and teens...

The Eternal Bank

Our little community lost a wonderful woman recently.  Mrs. “B” was a delight to everyone who crossed her path.  She greeted every single person with a warm smile and twinkling eyes.  In fact, she and her husband, Mr. “J” were the first to stop by and greet Cary and I...

Try a Little Kindness

A lady in front of me at the grocery store had a real melt down today.  Sadly, I couldn’t flee the area fast enough to avoid witnessing her tirade at the clerk, then the sacker, and finally her children.  After she left I told the clerk, “she must be having a bad...

Hide Where You Can Find

America seems to have grown apathetic about their faith.  A recent Pew research study shows  97.3% of professing “born-again believers” have never shared the gospel with another person.  Maybe we’re taking our freedom of faith for granted.  I bet if you lived in...

Great Awakening

Some fifty years ago, 85% of American children attended church on a regular basis.  Today, only 4% attend regularly.  When the pastor made that statement, I remembered my own upbringing in church, particularly my “Jesus Movement” days.  During the early ‘70’s, I was...

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

After learning of the death of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, each of her famous songs replayed in my head.  I found myself dancing to her music and singing at the top of my lungs, especially when she sang Respect (… all I’m asking for is a little respect …). ...

R(edemption) & R(econciliation)

If I tell you I’m off for “R&R,” what am I talking about?  Many would say “Rest & Relaxation,” or some other definition.  Over the last year “R&R” will forever stand for “Redemption & Reconciliation.”  Let me tell you about it. When we moved to the...

Thanks to all of you for the outpouring of encouragement on my journey to better health.  Now that I have started the journey, here’s an update on my path.   As with any trip, you have to pack.  My “guide/trainer” gave me a specific grocery list (organic, no...

A Servant’s Heart

Over the course of my life I’ve had the privilege of observing the work of many of God’s servants in action.  There are those who have large international ministries, but the majority serve in smaller environments – all doing what they felt God had called them to do....

Something Old, Something New

Every young woman knows the old saying “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” in preparation for a wedding.  While there’s no wedding in my sights (celebrating 30 year anniversary this year), I am preparing for something new, leaving the...

The White Rose

History provides many tales of courage, principle and honor.  The following is a story I read about this week that exemplifies all three of these. Hans and Sophie Scholl were German teenagers in the 1930s. Like most young Germans, they  joined the Hitler Youth and...
