My Idol

My Idol

Funny how Satan works. You think he’s going to tempt you with lust and greed and power (which I’m sure he does with plenty of people), and then he goes and uses something a lot craftier. Apparently Satan has pulled out the big guns, with me. Something that no one would think would lead to […]

This ten-part series on same-sex marriage seeks to address the fundamental issues behind one of the most important debates of our century – the debate about marriage.

Miracles of a Weeping Cherry and Number Sequencing

Our weeping cherry tree is blooming. My daughter made progress with understanding number sequencing. And, yes, those two things are connected. The Weeping Cherry I’ll start with the weeping cherry tree. It was a gift from some friends at church, after Dominic died. Kind of a miracle tree, in some ways. You see, we had […]

The Burden

The Burden

The Burden I am not an equal opportunity pray-er. I used to be. Years ago, when I would hear prayer requests, at church or elsewhere, I would do things like write them all down, and go through them one by one, even if I didn’t know the people, and I would say prayers for them, […]

The Kiss

The Kiss

I found the verse on one of my “I just need to hear a word from the Lord” random Bible openings. I’d already done my regular, organized devotion, but felt like I needed more words from Him. I do this periodically – just open up and see where I land. This time it was on […]
