Water

“The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.” ~ Proverbs 11:25 ~ Watering is time-consuming, and it can be expensive. It can seem like a waste, quite frankly. However, there’s something refreshing about the healthy green of a yard, feeling the soft grass under my feet instead […]

A Clarification (to my previous post)

I want to clear things up just a bit, though I don’t know if my efforts will do much good. Nevertheless, it is being said of me that in a recent blog post of mine I am “bashing working moms. ” However, I want to make it known that it certainly wasn’t my intent to […]

Daycare Dilemma

First of all, let me just say, I hate what the term “childcare problems” implies about our children.  Unwittingly, this subconsiously sends the message that our children are hassles and inconveniences.  Children that need care-taking are problems.  Why don’t we instead gather together as communities to discuss “parentcare problems?”  Why is it so hard to […]

For You

Gift of Truth

Me: “You are racist.” She: “Racism exists.  You are choosing to participate in racist ways.” Which one is better? My comment was used in part of a longer example in discussing discrimination and reconciliation.  She picked up on my hypothetical comment and suggested how I might say it better, citing word choice as a large, contributing factor in […]

Call Me a Hypocrite? . . . Fine.

There exist people in this world with whom I don’t care to really converse.  There are some with whom I don’t want to play on the same team–I don’t want my name mentioned in the same breath as theirs.  And there are some whose decisions I lament and motivations I question.  I’m human.  I’m a […]

Joyful Prayers

Have you ever prayed for your “enemy” because you knew it was the right thing to do? Because it’s the biblical, christian thing to do? But the whole time you did it your heart was struggling to be loving, and you felt bad because no matter how you tried, the prayer was still selfish and […]

If You Can’t Say Somethin’ Nice . . .

>Sometimes I wish God would just make me mute whenever I’m about to say something I shouldn’t. I’d open my mouth to say the inappropriate thing that my brain convinces my mouth needs to be said and . . . silence. That would be heavenly! Or maybe, just as my mouth is beginning to form […]

Is There a Happy Middle-Ground?

>I’m blogging because, for me, right now, it’s the happy middle-ground between escaping into my Netflix instant queue and being super proactive in researching church membership, statistics, options, scripture references, and the like. I don’t want to work that hard on something that might not end up mattering, but I don’t feel like escaping is […]

A Balancing Act

>As a mostly stay-at-home momma and a very part-time minister, it would seem like I have a lot of free time on my hands. And I kinda do. Kinda. As any stay-at-home parent knows, “free time” has to be filled with pretty mindless, easily interruptible, and quickly picked back up activities. You can’t get into […]

> Watch live streaming video from bishopjimswilley at livestream.com This video is a little long, but please take it all in. And then let us all know what you think. This is a major issue in the church today and one not to be ignored or dismissed. It’s important that we look at homosexuality within […]
