It’s All Relative

Every family reunion the discussion comes around to this subject without fail.  I have a family member who is in prison. Statistically, I knew I was not alone, (1.7 million minor children in the U.S with a parent behind bars), but suddenly the prevalence…

Esther’s Choices in Captivity

Esther is in captivity, but she still has choices.   Though she was captured–bodily taken–yet her spirit apparently had not been overtaken. Along with many other young women, Esther is in custody of the keeper of the women.   Verse 9 says she won…

Agape Love for Myself

Natural love for myself, constantly uses the “I” word – especially in disagreements.  Natural love for myself says it is better to ask forgiveness than permission.  Natural love made Eve make “I want” her priority to the detriment of all present and future relationships….

On Vacation?

6 and –one-half days until I take off for a little vacation and sunnier weather.  I can hardly wait.  Preparations escalate daily, as I research, find coupons, exercise and adapt diet to try to lose a few pounds before we go. Isn’t it interesting,…

Sometimes I let emotions control my feelings instead of facts and I feel down, down, down. The facts are the only thing that is eternal – God’s Word.  When I look anywhere else my nature feels hopeless because without the Word I look at…

Recipe for Faith: Just Add Eggs

A Heavenly Recipe “OK Lord, you’ve got my attention.”  It didn’t sound like much of a prayer, even to me, after the miracle of us getting a home when we’d been so in debt.  But I knew that God understood. I’d promised when we…
