My Sunday Morning - Not What it Used to Be

Here I sit, on my couch with coffee and a Sunday paper on my lap on a March Sunday morning at about a quarter to 9. Just that simple description still boggles my mind a bit, I must admit. I have been a life-long church goer. It is what. you. do....more

'Cosmos' vs Creationism

What Does Faith Look Like?

The word 'faith' is such an interesting word. When I am looking for writing jobs, I type that word into the search box to describe the subject I want to write about. I also type in 'religion, spirituality and church'. For me personally, each of these words carry an entirely different and distinct meaning. But for general search engines and job categories they are interchangeable. ...more

Dear GOD

I was in front of my computer.  Thinking, reading blogs, praying; trying to understand my path.I know. I was listening.Selfishness creeps in.  Self doubt is knocking on the door of my heart. Why does our human side have to come out so ugly.  Dying to flesh is a process....more

A change for the better?

It has been a while since I have posted anything.  Really my life has been sort of boring which has been kind of nice.  I had settled into a nice routine...work, kids, church.  I have been focused on making God my first love and getting to know him better.   I have read through the bible and am a third of the way through it again.  I go to lifegroups at our church which are smaller more intimate bible studies....more

You never left. When I felt the lack of Your presence, it was my fault. I turned away....more

Can you Swallow a Pocket knife?

My Uncle Bill could do the most amazing trick. All of us kids could be mesmerized for hours. He would sit in an old wooden folding chair while my cousins and I would gather at his feet.  Y'all, he could swallow his pocket knife!I can't make this stuff up...  He would sit in his chair and in a grand, dramatic way he would choke down his pocket knife.  Us kids, would just stare at him, thinking he would just die, but instead he would cough, and hack, and up would come the pocket knife....more

God Uses Fortune Cookies

    Sometimes I think we put God in a box.  We have an expectation of who he is, how he works, what he does or does not do.   Our past, our lives, our parents, churches, philosiphies, denominations, convictions, experiences, everything comes together to create the image of God we have.  Sometimes though, I think God likes to surprise us.  He likes to catch us off guard.  It makes sense,  when Jesus came he completely turned upside down everything that everyone thought was "religion."   He taught things that were contrary to many re...more
