RINSE Away Your Anger

I felt his presence again just the other night. It had been awhile. Time was prime for his appearance. I was tired. There was a crowd about us. In a hurry. The person before me was … in a mood. And then, it happened. A verbal attack thrust upon me. Or so it seemed in […]

Escape: Transportation or Transformation?

A Way to Escape There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Cor […]

Reflecting Up

It is not for modesty — but for Glory’s sake. If there be any good that come from me, my words or the work of my hands: It is not I, but Christ from within; with the Holy Spirit as my guide. I’ve found if compliments to me are given, I may receive them for […]

RECIPE: Healthy Pumpkin-Carrot Pudding

What started out as an experiment has become a staple. As in a small helping every day in her lunch box to school. Last fall, we found ourselves with an abundance of carrots. Angela’s birthday was coming up and I wanted to fix a dessert dish that wasn’t a carrot cake (she fixes that for […]

Snap Out of It!

Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep – Prov 6:9 It starts with a little. A little sleep. A little slumber. A little folding of the hands to sleep. Binge resting. Maybe it doesn’t always include a closing of the eyes, but as with many unprofitable pastimes […]

Funeral for a Friendly Neighbor

Maybe you’ve seen a game of tag among the neighborhood squirrels. I think it’s a game they play. Sometimes, there is much noise and it seems at times some tempers flare when things get a little rough. When the birds join in, it can get kind of ugly. As I was driving home recently, I […]

Remembering My School Days – and My Mom

Maybe it was because of recent graduations. Perhaps it was remembering my Mom’s upcoming birthday (Arrivederci, Mama). It was probably a home video of my childhood, sent by my younger brother.
