Lay aside and Put on

“that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and...

Persistent planting #Write28Days

Brokenness plants seeds in our life that unfortunately grow like dandelions on a freshly mowed lawn. You think the brokenness is repaired, just like you think the dandelions are gone when you mow your yard. With a persistence, the dandelions rapidly expand and take over ever little inch of ground they can cover, despite the... Continue Reading →

Lessons from Glass

I love that I get amazing spiritual lessons from the most unconventional methods. My husband and I went and watched the movie Glass (2019) recently. I have seen the other movies in the trilogy. I honestly didn't remember them, other than that Split was psychological in nature. Before the movie, I asked my husband if... Continue Reading →

One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, great crowds pressed in on him to listen to the word of God. He noticed two empty boats at the water’s edge,... Continue Reading →

I am

I am a native of my community. I was born and raised in the same local place. Then so moved away and spent a little more than a decade out of state before finding my way back home. That also describes my relationship with God and church. I grew up in church, from the time... Continue Reading →

We have an amazing opportunity in our community that allows people with no artistic ability to create their own painting.  It is a guided process that takes you step by step, technique by technique for a single painting.   The business often does fundraisers for nonprofits, where a portion of the money collected is given...

Good Judgement or Judging

POD #17: Spiritual Pepper Spray (Good Judgement or Judging) When I think about judging others, and if I'm honest I do it more than I should, I am comparing how I do something or see something with how someone else responds.  Generally, when I am judging someone, I myself as better than someone in a...

All you need

I saw a sign recently that said "All you need is love."  I thought about the number of trainings as a professional that I go to that contradict this comment.  Problems in society like poverty, the brokenness found in abuse and neglect, addictions, perversion, etc.  Love doesn't make these things go away. Today I realize... Continue Reading →
