Tonight my church reinstated a tradition we used to hold: Sunday night worship services. For now, they will only be the first Sunday of each month, but to have regained it at all makes me so happy. A night of pure praise and worship, allowing the Holy Spirit to move freely a mong us however … Continue reading Love, Look, Love
I spent my first four years of college as an English major because I loved studying the language. Then I realized that with today’s marketplace….that’s another story…. But my love of language hasn’t dwindled. And that’s not limited to the English language either. I also greatly enjoy learning about other languages, the roots of words, … Continue reading Acknowledge: A Word Study
This is a poem I wrote who knows when. I finally finished cleaning my room tonight (all except the vacuumming) and came across an old journal that held only a couple of stray pages. A couple of prayers, a list, and this undated poem. (Actually, given that I wrote “verse” and “chorus” next to the … Continue reading Falling Scales
Christmas and New Year’s was pretty hectic for me, as I’m sure it was for most of you folks out there. Part of my “break” involved going to my grandma’s for a few days and helping her decorate for the family gathering. Two things I always try to keep with me when I go away … Continue reading Right Where I Left It
I don’t know about you, but tonight I’m feeling pretty drained. I seem to make a habit out of “having my hand in too many fires” as my mom phrases it. This week things piled up: school work, extra shifts at my job, the daily blogging, caring for my sister, keeping up with the few … Continue reading Where’s Your Grace?
If you’re a female, you may remember doing this with your dad as a little girl. If you’re a father, you might have done this with your daughter. (You might have even done this if you’re a mom.) There’s something really wonderful about dancing, whether it’s a friend in a conga line, a date at a wedding, … Continue reading Dancing with Daddy
So, a few days ago, I posted about inviting people to church and using donuts as enticement, and in that I promised a follow-up; so here it is. I like donuts and being able to quickly grab one before service in the middle of my oft-busy Sunday mornings. I like that we can all get … Continue reading Spiritual Donuts
Okay, so I’m finally getting back to writing a blog that is not one of my weekly types, and I must say it feels nice. (Yes all you AP stylebook users, I DID just use an Oxford comma!) Sorry… I’m in some Communications classes (and I capitalized the major too!) and the switch from English … Continue reading We Have Donuts
Elijah was a great prophet. If you’ve in church for any length of time, you have likely heard the story of how he challenged the prophets of Ba’al to a sacrifice duel to see whose God would answer by fire and of course, the true God of Israel did. That was a great moment of … Continue reading The Last One Left?
C. S. Lewis once described his conversion to Christianity as him being dragged kicking and screaming into the Kingdom, because after examining the evidence he could no longer logically deny the truth of God as revealed in the Bible. Lewis went on to become one of the greatest apologists and voices for the Christian faith … Continue reading May God Bless You and Keep You… and Your Tongue Too
