Where My Treasure Is

Today is, of course, a day of remembrance of what was a life-stopping event, for most of us. Twenty years ago, I finally understood what it was to yearn for the coming of the Lord. I saw the world as it really is: full of evil and suffering. The day the towers fell, the horrors... Continue Reading →

Life Happens. . .God is Good

When I left for work on February 4th, I had plans to spend my lunch break working on the draft of my blog for the coming Saturday. But before my lunch break came, a call from my mother redirected all of my thoughts and energy. A scheduled test showed that my father needed bypass surgery,... Continue Reading →

In Your Dreams

I woke up on Tuesday morning, and before my feet hit the floor, I remembered something I had dreamed. It was heartsick. After getting my coffee, I sat down at my desk and opened my Bible. Staring back at me was Song of Solomon. I used to skip Song of Solomon, but Charles Spurgeon’s writing... Continue Reading →

Dressing For Action

I need new work boots and jeans. The road trip I have been planning has been cancelled, for entirely non-COVID-related reasons, and God has put a fresh idea in my mind.

my weakness, HIS Strength

When I look back at my life, the thread that I see woven through the years is God’s faithfulness to me.

From errands to household chores, blogging to letter writing, there always seem to be more things I want to do than I can fit in. But I love... Continue Reading →

What Tomorrow Holds

Last week, I postulated that these times are not actually more uncertain than any others, we are simply more aware of the uncertainty than usual. I have heard recently that some businesses are making plans to keep offices closed into next year, while retailers are planning to not have Black Friday in November. I am... Continue Reading →

Dropping Anchor

Just when it felt like life might return to normal, my state’s governor took measures to close down churches and businesses, again. This week, I felt the anxiety and discouragement wash over me. I don’t think that I have ever been so concerned for my community or the future of my country. Uncertainty seems to... Continue Reading →

Fear as a Motivator

In the face of these difficult, stormy times in our nation, I find I have turned to prayer. I am far from having mastered the spiritual discipline of prayer; it is not one of my strengths. But if I have ever prayed so fervently for my community and my country, I can’t remember it. I... Continue Reading →
