The Detox – Put ON so you can Put OFF

The Detox Have you heard of the Put On – Put Off principle? I am doing a (physical) detox and noticed how closely the plan/methodology of the detox is to the spiritual principle. The plan lasts 28 days and increasingly adds good things to…

Put on Simplicity – Body and Soul Healthy Lifestyle

2Corinthians 11:3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.   Simplicity, in my experience, is usually found in Single Servings – One at…

The Recipes of Victory

When does the end begin when the end is really the beginning? That’s where we are in Esther’s story.  Haman (her enemy) thinks the end of the Jewish nation is about to occur.  Esther, however, has run to God to pray for God’s direction. …

Hearing My Shepherd’s Voice

You are in a crowded room and out of all the cacophony of voices would you recognize your spouse’s or your parent’s voice? Would that one voice stand out? In Spain last summer, Lara (one of the missionaries) was driving a few of us…

What’s Your Listening Style?

Bear – Deer – Porcupine – or Puppy? Mama bear’s fierce protection of her cubs is well known.  Mama can growl about and discipline her cubs, but don’t you dare get between Mama and her baby! I can relate to that fierce loyalty and…

Varied Grace . . . and some unabashed joy

My Hanukkah Shamash

As a grandmother, you’d expect it from me, I know.  To hear me tell you that my grandson was the best, the bravest, the inspiration to us all, does not surprise anyone.  Even our David would roll his eyes at Gramma’s praise – for…

Sticks, Stones, and Words

Sticks and Stones will break my bones, and Words can wound my soul.   Not quite how we heard it growing up, is it?  I’ve been hurt physically and emotionally, and have to admit the most searing have been the words…  Words sometimes said…

What Do You See?

I love to look at the world like a toddler.  As a matter of fact, rather than being a “young-at-heart” senior, my incessant detailed examination of my world has caused some to liken me to a “very mature toddler!” Have you experienced a toddler’s…
