What Defines a Person . . .

. . . thank the Lord it doesn’t have to be the past. I was in my last year at bible college, on a good path toward a great future, in love with a guy I’d met over the summer who now lived hours away, preparing for a vocation in full-time ministry.  I was ready […]

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 […]

About No Pants

A couple days ago I came across some footage of No Pants Subway days — a yearly event, I learned, where thousands of people meet and pledge to not wear pants as they ride the subway to work, school, the museum, whatever.  It’s gained traction over the years and has grown to include numerous cities […]

My Top 10 + 1

Throughout my life, I’ve taken note of some pretty incredible principles and have noted some great sayings that put things into perspective when I’ve needed perspective, given me inspiration when I’ve been in a rut, or have been a boon to my attitude when I’ve been feeling schlumpy.  Whatever the case might be, I keep […]

Moral Responsibility

This Penn State/Joe Paterno thing is a kinda big deal in our house. Not because we knew the guy or even went to Penn State, though I do have a friend who graduated from there as did her other family members, but whatever, that’s beside the point. It’s a big deal because my husband is […]

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 […]

Love and Justice–A Noble War

>Justice is a two-sided weapon of love. One side is a pillow, the other is a jack hammer. It depends on what side you happen to be standing that determines the kind of emotion it will evoke. The one weilding the weapon should always come from a position of love, but not everyone will feel […]

Blog Envy? Nah . . .

>Sometimes I peruse other blog sites and think how cool the authors and creators must be. Their blogs are awesome, have really great design, interesting photos, and the writing is outstanding. Their blogs make me want to invite them over and be friends. Then I come back to mine and try to compete. But that’s […]

A Storm of Mixed Emotions

> Today I perused a number of church websites, something I do often. I enjoy seeing what churches around the world are doing and how their websites communicate who they are or who they think they are. Some are good, eye-catching, and inviting. Others are out-dated, confusing, or exclusive. So today, I happened upon a […]
