The worst kind of sin

We all know it's wrong, even as we're doing it.  The silent looks, knowing nods of agreement, quiet snickers and eye-rolls. The exclusion of someone who isn't necessarily like us, isn't up to snuff in our estimation, or just does or says things that annoy us... when we silently devalue another and lead others in… Continue reading The worst kind of sin

Ever hear a song lyric that just strikes you?  Check this one out: There's a day that's drawing near, When this darkness breaks to light; And the shadows disappear, And my faith shall be my eyes.

Survival

It's the middle of the night, and true to form, I am over-thinking life.  The past year has been such a whirlwind of work, school, church, and family crises that somewhere along the way I've become lost in the madness of it all.  My 12 year-old asked me the other day if I was still… Continue reading Survival

Daddy God

I have three biological children.  My oldest is a boy.  My youngest is a girl.  And the one stuck right in the middle?  ALL BOY.

Hubby and I were talking over supper tonight.... just about Who and What God is, and how we can't even fathom all of Him.... about His power, His complete intolerance of sin, His holy wrath poured out on his own people because of it, and His willingness to take all of that wrath and pour… Continue reading Awakening

“Don’t Laugh at Me”

"Don't laugh at me... don't call me names... don't get your pleasure from my pain.  IN GOD'S EYES, we're all the same.... some day we'll all have perfect wings...  Don't laugh at me." I was listening to this song by Mark Wills yesterday, planning on giving it to a friend to play for her students. … Continue reading “Don’t Laugh at Me”

Heart Smiles

I walked into Sara's room tonight to a common sight.... Sara sitting in her bed, reading her Bible.  As I walked in, she glanced up at me, barely acknowledging I was there, and went back to reading.  My little seven year old girl devours that Book at night.  As she came across something she was… Continue reading Heart Smiles

Confessions of a Facebook Junkie

When I first thought of the title of today's post, I googled it.  Lo and behold, it was already a title to another article. So then I considered the title "Why I Canceled My Facebook Account."  But since I had reinstated the account in order to connect my friends and family to my blog and… Continue reading Confessions of a Facebook Junkie
