Positioned for A Miracle

Early i Early in our marriage John and I had a terrible disagreement. Tempers flew. Feelings were damaged. Because of the totality of my love for him, I was in a state of despair. We were at an argument impasse; neither of us would budge. I did a bold thing on the way home from work the next day. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Can God Make A Rock Too Heavy For God To Lift?

This week I ran into a friend who informed me she has left “the faith,” in her case, Catholicism. She now embraces the religion of atheism. Apparently lack of belief in a deity qualifies as its own religion. I didn’t know that. She has based her newly-found truth on the fact that the God her church... Sign in to see full entry.

Why All The Violence?

I am disturbed by the incidents of violence in our country during the past few weeks. My senses have been bombarded by everything from the senseless murder and attempted murder of the Seattle police, to mass murder on a Texas military base. In Illinois authorities are digging up women’s bodies from... Sign in to see full entry.

Why I'd Like To Be A Dairy Cow

I’m not a fan of “ice breaker” games used to initiate groups of strangers. Most of them are silly. “Tell everyone your favorite flavor of ice cream.” Garlic? Spinach? Calorie-less? Who really cares? But recently I found one I rather enjoyed. “If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?”... Sign in to see full entry.

Four-year-old Cobi was missing!

All of a sudden it was the middle of the night and 4-year old Cobi was missing. Here’s what happened… Grandpa and I took the little grandsons and their mother away for a couple nights of fun at Great Wolfe Lodge. The boys brought their Halloween costumes, but really only wanted to wear their... Sign in to see full entry.

Why My Politicians Always Lose

If you really want to win an election, ask me to vote for your opponent. I have a near flawless record in public elections. Whoever I choose, will lose. Some years I have been able to accurately predict the winners in every candidate and every referendum. If I place an “X” or poke out a “chad” next... Sign in to see full entry.

The Tragic Love Story of Jim and Cathy

Sometimes I have more questions than answers. Here’s my issue: John and I have been mentoring a young man who is incarcerated at McNeil Island Correctional Facility. We have known Jim for years and are very fond of him and his wife, Cathy. They are bright, kind and insightful. Their two children are... Sign in to see full entry.

Lessons On Trusting God

My husband, John applied for a job this week. I don’t know what is harder: my periodic job searches or walking with him through his. First there was the application to fill out. I remember a time when that’s all a person had to do. We filled in the blanks on the form, dropped it off and waited for a... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Doubt A Sin?

I just completed a week-long journey of inner healing with over fifty women. I was not there to entertain, sound wise or solve anyone’s problems. In fact, God specifically instructed me to set aside the smug arrogance I like to wear as a mask. I was there to be taught. I was there to be humbled. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Dulling the Miracle Memory

Now that the weather is changing and Halloween candy is sold in bulk at the grocery store, it’s time for me to think (cautiously) about Christmas shopping. All year long companies send me their glorious and tempting catalogues so that in mid-October I can start my annual lists. If I’m going to be... Sign in to see full entry.
