Do You Trust That I Am the Truth?

Do You Trust That I Am the Truth?

The Earth Is Trembling I am bleeding. I don’t even care that that’s TMI, because right now there are just too many more important things going on in my world than whether or not I am following guidelines of decorum. I have been bleeding for two days, and I don’t mean just a little spotting. […]

Quitting the Masquerade

Quitting the Masquerade

Dominic has changed me in ways that I am still only discovering. One of those ways, I have learned, is my ability to be around people. Interaction with people over a long period of time tires me out, now. I also feel more protective of my time; I want my moments to count, and I […]

“I Wouldn’t Do It, But I Wouldn’t Say That It’s Wrong”

“I Wouldn’t Do It, But I Wouldn’t Say That It’s Wrong”

“I wouldn’t do it, but I wouldn’t say that it’s wrong”. It’s a sentiment I keep hearing, everywhere. Certainly from non-Christians, but, increasingly, from the Christian community as well. And the snarky question I want to ask back is, “Why not?” But I know the answer. It is an answer borne from a view of […]

My New Year’s Resolution

My New Year’s Resolution

I don’t normally do New Year’s resolutions. I mean, it already takes me, on a normal day, at least an hour to fall asleep at night due to my daily habit of pondering what I need to do better the next day or the next week or the next…you get the point. I could never […]

The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

The Season of Joy and Living in Egypt

It is the season of joy. The Christ child has come, the divine become human, to bridge the chasm our God-rejection created. Holiness proffered by grace, atonement procured by suffering…hope secured for eternity. For me, personally, this season, the blessings abound. Time to read snuggled up with my children each day. A refrigerator stocked full […]

The Spiritual Consequences of Summer

The Spiritual Consequences of Summer

Yellow buses, backpacks, new notebooks. Although it’s not quite the same for us homeschoolers, August/September ends up being “back to school” for us, too. Yes, we “do school” throughout the summer some, but not nearly as intensely or consistently, so the re-start-up is often a bit rocky. Or a lot. Like, whining and complaining non-stop. […]

Do You Want to Get Well?

Do You Want to Get Well?

Pity Party It has been a week of abundant stress and limited resources. In so many areas, the “not working out” has outweighed the “going the way I want it”, “not enough” has seemed to outweigh the abundance, and disappointment has outweighed hope. It’s been the kind of week that makes me soul weary and […]

Weary

Weary

I love my Lord. And I trust Him completely, and truly believe that He is always working for my good. But sometimes I’m just weary of it all. I’m a fighter. But these past few weeks even I have wanted to just surrender. Life is so much harder than anyone tells you, when you start […]
