In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.  (Psalm 4:8) In the last post, I talked about making each day count (still listed here on the blog as a page).   That seemed to hit a chord with a lot of people – mostly positive. Now I want to talk about making the most of every blissful nighttime minute, because without some sleep, those good intentions will be just as groggy as I am.    If I could sleep t»

Compassion is something that is hard wired into the DNA of a follower of Christ. For what Christ has done and how He has first loved us (1 John 4:19), if we are followers of Him, loving others and having compassion on them is a must. How could we respond otherwise? Everyone is made in the image of God so as we do life with others, whether they are believers or not, we should be compassionate and serve one another. Jesus had compassion on others a»

Today I’m especially thankful for friendship and love and migraines and Mary.  Migraines, you might ask?  Yes, I would answer those oppressive, nauseating headaches that make me want to sleep so I can’t feel them–or at least be in a dark room with no sound.  I’m thankful because the last two times I’ve had a migraine, my physical suffering has resulted in blessing. This morning I awoke with a headache.  I still enjoyed my quiet time»

Today’s blog is a Mother’s Day guest post (well, actually I stole it from her website so I guess it’s more of a hijacked post) from someone very special to me–my mom. Not only does this post introduce you to some of my cherished family legacy, it also introduces you to my mom’s writing. She needs to post more often (you might help nudge her in that direction), but what she has written is well worth your time. Enjoy. Her»

Salvador Dali, Canita tuba in Sion Today is Ash Wednesday, the official beginning of Lent.  Traditionally on Ash Wednesday Christians attend a service and get a cross of ashes smeared on their heads.  This symbolizes many things from being a reminder of “from dust you are and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19), and to repent by wearing “sackcloth and ashes” (Lamentations 2:10).  The ashes then demonstrate a recognition of our mor»

Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths.  Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day.  (Psalm 25:4-5, NKJV, emphasis added) His Word lights your path and we see it when we wait on God with hope. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.  (Psalm 119:105, NKJV) Your word.  The wonder of God’s Word is such that the longest Psalm in the Bible, Psalm 119, is devoted to i»

In December 2010, in anticipation for the new year, I read through Lamentations and came across a passage that echoed in my soul. When I re-read the verse in the Message paraphrase, I had no doubt that this verse was significant for the upcoming year. God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks. It’s a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God. It’s a good thing when you’re»

Why do you expect pleasure with-out pain? You cannot appreciate the dawn without a journey through the night. D. Riddell  I like to get up early in the morning. It's quiet, peaceful and I get to see the sunrise.  Today I looked out on the dawning of a summers day. No clouds in the sky just beautiful apricot tinges of colour. Every minute I looked out the window the scene changed, the colours evolved and I experienced something completely ne»
