There is much ado in the news this week about Creflo Dollar, pastor of the World Changers Church International in metro Atlanta, and his recent altercation with his daughter.  I found it interesting that most news releases gave special attention to the fact that Pastor Dollar is a proponent of the “prosperity message”, the size […]

The Invisible Cross-How do People See Christ in You?

  I recently celebrated my birthday–praise the Lord!  Before the special day, my husband asked what I would like for a gift.  At first I  couldn’t think of anything but then a thought came to mind–a cross necklace.  I had resisted either purchasing  or requesting a cross necklace before but this year I felt differently.  […]

WHEN LIFE HAPPENS

What is our response to misfortune?  Why me?  We try to do the right thing, make the appropriate preparation, and make the best choices based on “what we know at the time.”  So what happened?  Life happened.  As inhabitants of fallen world, we are not immune to the affects and experiences which life presents (Eccl.

As I Look in the Mirror…Remembering MOMA

The occasion–my sister’s 70th birthday.  I rebuked the cold of Cottage Grove, Minnesota to spend this special time with my “Sister Dear.”  How much fun it was to laugh and be silly once again like we did when we were little girls.  We even shared her king-size bed for our five days of true sisterhood.

Upon return from exile, Nehemiah told the builders of the new wall of Jerusalem that “the joy of the  Lord would be their strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10) The joy that could only come from eternal God would sustain them through the most dire of circumstances. The principle of joy in all circumstances still resonates even in […]

A Closet Full of JOY, Week 1

A few months ago I asked a very talented writer to develop a series that would provide “instantaneous joy” for you women on the move.  It would be inspiring yet also give the reader Scripture they could meditate on during their busy day. And “voila”,  here you have it, “A Closet Full of JOY”.   […]

Numbering Our Days Since 9/11: A Dialogue

September 11 will be known as one of the most horrific days in our countries’ history.  Like the assassinations of  President John F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King, we clearly visualize where we were when we heard the news. Psalm 90:12 reads:  “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart […]
