What's Your Price?

This is very personal for me, because it deals with a topic I still from time to time struggling with, but hope to help others to not struggle with it long or not at all.That is Self-worth. I asked, “What’s your price?”, in the beginning because I wanted you to take the time to thing about it. Do you have a price? What price are you willing to pay for others (male or female) to like you, accept you and/or love you?...more

The Antidote to Discontent

There's something about the month of February that brings out the grumbling in all of us.  Maybe it is the fact that it is several months into the cold, dark season of winter, especially for those of you still buried under a couple feet of snow.  Last week, the groundhog confirmed we've got another six weeks of winter ahead of us (why do we keep consulting that groundhog anyway, he's not even a trained meteorologist?) and I know many of you are ready to pack up the snow boots and break out your gardening gear.  (I hear you.  Last night while I was ...more

Not A Fan

No, I'm not talking about the recent book by the same title, although I did read it. My father-in-law gave me a copy - he was handing them out like candy. I forget how many copies he bought, but while he was here I kept him well supplied with coupons to the Christian book store. It was a lot - like maybe 50!But I digress. I'm not a fan of this whole selling of the house and having showings thing. Yes, it forces me to keep the house tidy and that is a good thing. But it's getting a little bit old to pack up the dog and find somewhere to go for an hour and a half or so....more

A New Thing

It’s February! To me, this means two very exciting things: 1. Spring is well on its way. 2. The days are getting longer!It’s not in a way that I can see clearly, but it’s in a way that I can feel in the stirrings of my soul. I’m so thankful. God has planted tiny seedlings of joy that have been waiting to bloom at the right moments....more

Seasoned Mothers born in the year of the twenties !

There were mothers, in the church, when I was younger, in my thirthies, that I wanted to emulate, they were seasoned full of Godly wisdom. They are  gone on to glory now, some were blessed to live  to be one hundred plus.  When, they were on earth, I listen to them, they could see with their spiritual eyes and could tell you with love, not condemnation, where you were going wrong. ...more
