The Predator

This is an updated excerpt from my Bible study The Few, the Humble, the Church; A Study on the Book of Ephesians and Spiritual Warfare. I watched my dog, Agape transform into a predator. From my front window, I could see a herd of twelve deer, all does, walking up my long driveway. We have…

Brokenhearted

Two years ago yesterday, we lost our sweet dog, Olivia. It was a very warm winter day. She went out onto our pond (that was frozen the day before) and fell in. We were at a funeral for a family member and no one was there to rescue her. I was heartbroken and inconsolable. I…

Mary’s Song

Please enjoy this Christmas post by my friend Diane Virginia Cunio. While shoppers hurried into the mall to escape the winter winds, I was acutely aware of one man who, instead, was ambling to the entrance, methodically tapping his cane. He touched the door.

Approaching God

I am almost finished writing my Bible study called The Jewels of Hebrews. It is a study covering the New Testament book of Hebrews while helping Christians understand the Hebraic roots of our faith. It’s called The Jewels of Hebrews (JOH for short) because each chapter is named after a gemstone such as a sapphire,…

From Daddy, with Love

Love makes us do crazy things. We sing more love songs than any other song. We hear Country songs about what a man will do for his love, and pop singers singing about the love of their life. And who doesn’t like a great love story? Hallmark movies, romance novels, and magazine articles all boast…

Which filter do you use?

A filter is a common word in today’s vernacular. Growing up, it meant a white, paper thingy you used in your Mr. Coffee to keep the coffee grains from getting into your cup of caffeine. Now, we have the French press and the Keurig, and there is no need of the big, white filters anymore….
