Easter Sunday sermon snippet still on my mind! Both thieves crucified with Jesus had a prayer request. Both wanted to be saved. Do you want your prayers answered? Compare the two requests from Luke 23:39-43. Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.” But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under… Read More

Just how much grace do you need? How much is sufficient for today, this week, this year, or for a lifetime? Today while cleaning out drawers in a small chest in my office I found a box of staples. A box I bought 29 years ago. It’s more than half full; I discovered that when they spilled out. And I remember giving away several strips to friends in need :D I didn’t… Read More

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_writing_challenge/great-expectations/ The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Every time I hear that phrase I’m tempted to ask questions. There’s a road, really? Paved, really? My goal for this Daily Prompt on Great Expectations was a less spiritual and a more practical business spin on the old cliche. Knowing nothing about business, I doubled down and wrote in verse. This poem is dedicated to Seth Godin who continually ‘delivers’, or… Read More

For each of us the Cross of Jesus Christ is either intensely personal or meaningless. There’s no middle ground, no gray area. What happened in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago poses a question to each of us. What response do I have to the death of Christ on the Cross? The Bible says the Cross was about reconciling God’s holiness with His great love for us. We always underestimate His holiness. We… Read More

This is a quick and easy project you could make with your kids, or make as a hostess gift if you’ve been invited for Easter Dinner. You’ll get everything you need for under $30.00.

When I am not saving the world from copious amounts of dog hair armed with my trusty lint rollers, I’m taking pictures. Nature, pets and the occasional human are my subject of choice. My dogs and horse are my muses and I am THAT girl running around after them with a camera to capture their every expression or ridiculous sleeping poses. However, I do venture out into…

Be Awesome in Your Own Fur 1. Take Pride in Your Appearance We are divine, noble, and gorgeous creatures by nature. Therefore, appearance is everything. Every chance you have, be sure to lick yourself to keep your fur in place and looking glossy. Bask in your glory on a windowsill and allow other people to admire your exquisiteness. Nap. *Disclaimer: Cats have impossible standards of beauty. Do…

Jerusalem is the stage for the final chapter of Redemption’s Long Story. This is a special week for people who profess faith in Jesus Christ, for believers, for Christ followers. It’s full of meaning and each successive day adds potent reminders of what Jesus did, what He said, and how God’s long, long plan of salvation unfolded and marched toward the prophesied consummation. Beginning with a word to the serpent, God told… Read More

I’m all about sneaking in vegetables to unsuspecting places. This recipe: case in point. In lieu of noodles, sub in meaty slices of eggplant. If you don’t tell your family they’re eating eggplant, I promise they won’t ask any questions. This is a convincing lasagna! In fact, my husband actually prefers it. I know. Lots of veggies and the perfect vehicle for melty cheese and warming turkey meat sauce.…

“Christianity and its goal, Christlikeness, have a person in mind: Christ! What sets Christian spiritual activity apart from all other religions is that they have knowledge of Christ as their goal; not moral perfection (although you will become more moral), not tranquility (although your life will become remarkably more peaceful). And because of the grace you have in Christ, the disciplines will do nothing to make you more accepted by the Father…. Read More
