Yea, Though I Walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death… .

During the most desperate times in my life, when It was impossible for me to “fix” anything, I clung to the pages of God’s Word, and called out to Him.

A Word for Those Who Lay Awake at Night Wondering What Tomorrow May Bring

Every day, programs on TV, radio, and electronic media-feeds bombard us with news of the latest threats and attacks, both foreign and domestic. The stock market surges and crashes. And the weather seems to grow more intense with each passing season. We might even be experiencing difficult relational situations at home or at work. Today’s […]

Shattered Glass

Before the spinning, out of control, the shattered glass flying,  and my brain rolling upside-down… I’d set an alarm to wake myself from dreaming, splash water on my face, and throw on my fashion of the day, as I downed dripped coffee, and dash into the frenzied machinations of the weekly blur of the marketplace. […]

I’m So Glad I Grew Up with Animals

“Happy birthday to you.  Happy birthday to you. You look like a blah-blah… And you smell like one, too!” I remember hearing and singing this ditty as a young child with my friends, then, laughing and chasing each other around in fun. The ironic thing is, I probably did often smell like some kind of […]

The Sheep of His Pasture

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life.” (John‬ ‭10‬:‭27-29‬ KJV) The Christian walk can be a difficult one.  We, naturally (that is to say, the “natural” man in us) want to do our own thing.  But, the new Spirit man in us […]

To My Jewish Friends

Before Yeshua, Gentiles were godless people, or worshipped false gods, which are no gods.   “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV) But now, true Christian believers worship the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whose […]

How Godly Men Treat Their Wives

Children of War

Ah, the sweetness of children! A tiny boy stands at attention, waiting politely for food, then spontaneously gives a sweet, innocent hug of gratitude, and gently pats the hand of another onlooking soldier. Oh, that the purity of heart of the children, and of the soldier who gave away his bread to these little ones, […]

Christian Quote of the Day

“Mom, I Wish You Could Have Been Here on Mother’s Day.”

As Mother’s Day approached this year, I mentally recounted, as I do every year, how long it had been since my mother had passed away—nearly 19, and I felt a sudden pang, as that cruelly-ordinary number suddenly made my mom feel so very far away. I felt a familiar wave of sadness, and a soul-deep […]

Hope for Healing in the Christian Marriage After Infidelity

How blessed we are, as Christians, to have the Lord to walk with us through such a difficult situation as the infidelity of one or both partners in a marriage. I once heard a very enlightening and hope-filled Christian radio program, in which a man had shared how he had found release from his addiction […]

Real Men Don’t Do This

One of my nieces recently posted the following on Facebook: “No more staying up late for me! I used to go to bed around 2 am and be up at 6 am. But since I started working, I can’t seem to make it past 9:30-10 pm, and I am fast asleep! Gosh I am soo […]

Could My Faith Face a Gun?

My mother always warned me about traveling alone at night. But, although I was an adult, and always a dutiful daughter, or what’s known as a “compliant child,” I never heeded her advice in this particular matter. And late one night, I came face-to-face with a startling reason why she had often issued her dire […]
