We all have bad things happen, right? You lose your phone, your computer or even the flash drive that holds your favorite movie, right? What if you lost your child? Devastating. I know people who have lost children to miscarriage, still birth, or even SIDS. It's all horrible. I don't blame parents who grieve every … Continue reading Book Review: The Shack
Boy have I been here...Trying to forgive someone who not only doesn't realize he (or she) is doing something wrong, but blames ME for getting mad. This is REALLY not the easiest thing in the world. I've been to support groups, and support groups, and did I mention support groups? None of them really had an … Continue reading Forgive The Unforgivable
Don't believe me? Check these stories out: Brendan Garman, an autistic child from Missouri, saved his teacher when she had an asthma attack during class. Read the full story here. A group of teenagers save a 5-year old little boy by chasing down the kidnapper on their bikes. Read that story here. Back in 2012, … Continue reading Superheroes Exist!!!
My first reaction to that question is "yes, we are." But the rest of the answer is a little more complicated. God never told us we would never have hard times, and He never said things would always be tulips and lollipops. But here is what He DID say: Cast your cares on the Lord … Continue reading Are Christians Allowed To Be Anxious?
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. --Martin Luther King Jr. I try not to get too political on this blog, but I am going to exercise my freedom of speech and go on a small little rant here. It's Martin … Continue reading Yes, Kindness & Equality Can Exist Together
So as I'm sure most of you have noticed, I've been out of pocket for about a week. Well, that's because I've been sick. I know! Actually sick. Fever, cough, runny nose...the works. I was pretty miserable, and couldn't seem to find a brain cell within about a mile of me in order to actually … Continue reading Back And Better Than Ever!
Ok, so my boss at work asked me to start looking for another job. I'm not really being fired, as they are giving me time to find something else before I leave. The feeling is pretty much the same though. I'll be honest, I really want this blog to take over because I know I … Continue reading 4 People From The Bible Who Had To Start Over
Ok, so I think I mentioned that I'm 35, right? Well, in all those 35 years, I've never had a broken bone. I praise God all the time for strong bones and healthy bodily systems. I thought this week that I had finally broken that record, and had my very first broken bone. You can … Continue reading Patience Is A Virtue
So in my previous post I promised a list of some of my favorite things for my new years goals. I'm going to start with 4 of the devotionals that I found. Two of them I've used, and two of them just looked like fun. You can find them all at Mardel online. I will … Continue reading Journals, Bibles and Devotionals
Personally, I don't believe in them. Calling something a resolution pretty much guarantees that I won't keep it. People fail at them all the time, so why do we continue to make them? Because human beings have to have goals. We are hardwired to go after something. God built us that way so that we … Continue reading New Years Resolutions
Imagine something with me for a sec....imagine you're a parent, and your child just came and asked you for something...doesn't matter what it is, but for this story's sake, let's call it a bicycle. Your child just came to you and said, "I want a bicycle. I know you can get it for me, so … Continue reading Don’t Be Double-Minded
Genesis 37-50 The story of Joseph has always been one of my favorites. Not because he ends up being second in command of Egypt, or because he was able to save his family from the famine. My favorite part of the story is that no matter what happened to him, he still managed to trust … Continue reading God Has Great Things In Store
