A Small League of Unrecognized Radicals (repost)

Originally posted on Not About Me:
I’m not good with the crucifixion. I read and write all around it, but I struggle with the actual event. I’ve never even seen The Passion of the Christ. Last summer, however, God gave me this perspective, and I managed to get the words down. So for Good Friday this year,…

God disciplines us for our good

Michael is my youngest and most strong-willed son. Of course, he got that from his father. 🙂 Disciplining him was not easy since I didn’t always understand the ways of this child. I remember when he was ten months old; I asked the doctor what was wrong with my baby. He bites, screams, and sits…

God is not ashamed to be our God

I was the fifth child of seven born to my parents. I was the fourth of six girls. Here’s where most people say, “Your poor father!” My parents had a significant age gap between them; my dad was fifty-years-old when I was born. By the time I was two months old, my brother died from…

The Gift of Gab

A few years ago, my doctor did some genetic testing to find out why certain things were happening inside me. It was nothing serious but could become a problem if not stopped.

Is Yoga for Christians?

Living out the Sabbath (Shabbat)

Fellow blogger Carole Sparks wrote “Sabbathing: Is that a word?” on her blog Not About Me. She brought up a lot of good points in that post as well as her follow up post. You can read it here.  As I read her post, it made me think of my time in Israel and celebrating a Shabbat…

Hope

Through it all, we have a Father and Savior who stick by our side.

Identity Theft

Identity. What does it mean? We all have one. We’ve all heard of identity theft, right? Wikipedia says, “It means to assume another person’s private identifying information…to commit fraud or other crimes.” It also says, “The person whose identity has been assumed may suffer adverse consequences…” But, what is our identity? Who seeks to steal it?…
