Migrating to WordPress

After many years learning to blog on another site, I'm ready to graduate from writing about every squirrel that runs through the yard to more focused topics. I am therefore beginning anew here at WordPress. Occasionally I will share some of the favorite posts from the good old days while leaving the simply "newsy" bits behind. The series of Bible...

To Live is Christ

First posted November 22, 2011, though our circumstances have changed, opportunities for despair are still always at hand in this fallen world. Yet, our reasons to hope in Christ have never changed and he is our never-failing refuge in any and every storm. This post seemed appropriate to re-share during this Thanksgiving week. May we...

As The Mother of a U. S. Army Soldier

First published Monday, August 8, 2011, republished in honor of Veteran's Day. I am grateful to say that my son came home from Afghanistan, was honorably discharged from the Army at the end of his service, is now married and is pursuing a college degree. Thank you, Nathaniel, for your service. Friday, as we were... Continue Reading →

Lamentation

First posted in December 2012, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. Yesterday morning, yet another heartrending mass shooting took place. Evil rampantly violated the worship of God's people in a rural church only 37 miles from where I sat in church with my family. Worshipers were ushered from their pews straight into...

Burden and Blessing

Originally published Friday, July 25, 2014 Because I'm not so good with the putting-the-words-together-thing in real-life with real-live people, I often wish I had a pause button so that, when stumped with a question or statement that demands a clear and thoughtful answer, I could step away from the conversation and give more thought, prayer, a...

What Does the Lord Require?

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8) Several years ago, I visited a church built in early 1900’s (or earlier) in Reading, Pennsylvania. As I admired the patterned... Continue Reading →

The Rapture That Wasn’t

Originally published May 22, 2011. It seems that every day there are more reasons to long for our Lord's return. So much heartbreak in the News and in the lives of those we love that is crushing or numbing, or both. I pray that we are driven ever more to prayer as we await our... Continue Reading →

Be Strong in the Lord

This week we finished our Bible study of Joshua and Ephesians, Living the Promises. Our final lesson covered a passage that for me, as for many, has been shrouded in layers of shallow misunderstanding and misapplication. As a recovered Charismatic, I have been both hesitant and eager to dig into the “Armor of God.” Allowing... Continue Reading →

In Relationship

In this week’s lesson, we looked at two more categories of relationships which believers are to bring under the gospel as we walk out our calling in Christ. To set the context, we are asked to look back at some of the high points we have covered thus far in our study of Ephesians. What... Continue Reading →

Living Together in Christ

We began this week’s study with Ephesians 5:15-21. The theme of this passage appears to be wise living. We therefore began with Job 28:28, and seeking the essence of wisdom. “And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’” Clearly, according to...
