I have been away for three weeks! I don't know about you, but when I travel, I find it difficult to concentrate on writing blogs, or any other thing for that matter. Travel is not as glamorous as some people think. Countless hours are spent sitting in airports, planes, and cars. The airline food is [...]

We all live to some extent with illusions We can make ourselves believe that we will be okay no matter what the circumstances. We are prone to believe the blatant lie that we can pull ourselves up by our boot strings and keep going at any cost. We see ourselves as better than we really [...]

I was reading the blog of a popular, highly recommended author. I was stunned by her scathing attack on a Christian leader significantly older and more experienced than she was! Her blog was well written, but was used to criticize this renowned leader and expose his faults. When it comes to this particular leader, I [...]

Three weeks in and out of bed with different viruses has given me an appreciation for my general, overall, good health.  I don't like being bed bound, but sometimes your body wants nothing more than to rest and recover from the virulent virus that has attacked it.  So it is great to be up and [...]

I know what people generally see in me and I am acutely aware of what they don’t! As a rule people don't see the dark side of my life. It is not that I am intentional about hiding aspects of my life—I simply don't want people to see the dismal side of me that sometimes [...]

If we open our hearts to anyone, we risk being hurt.  When you open your heart you become vulnerable because you are exposing a part of your inner self.  The truth is, there is nothing more wonderful in the entire world than opening up your heart to others.  But, let me be honest and say, [...]

The moment was almost surreal as I listened to the doctor’s words There are risks with this surgery . . . your husband can die, and we have to inform you of the possibility of brain damage. I remained calm on the outside, but not on the inside. “Please God, don’t let Paul die,” I [...]

A friend of ours tragically lost his wife a few months ago.  They were out enjoying the day together when she had a fatal accident that took her life.  I was reminded of the Scripture in James 4:14  Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow.  What is your life? You are a [...]

I am utterly intimidated by this Proverbs 31 woman I am not sure about you, but when I read Proverbs 31, I am utterly intimidated by this woman. She is no ordinary woman—this is superwoman on steroids! She “selects wool and flax,” and I don’t even know what flax looks like! She is compared to a [...]
