But I'm Not Good Enough!

I sometimes like really big words. I like to say them. I like the feel of lots of syllables stepping off my tongue. One of the words I enjoy saying is anthropomorphism. What this great word means is not complicated. It means “giving human characteristics to nonhuman things.” Cartoons do this all the... Sign in to see full entry.

Haunted By The Afterlife

I am haunted by a story I heard last year. Sitting at the bedside of a dying friend, his son Steve began to talk about heaven. There are many books that document near-death experiences where people come back and share what they saw. Most often they talk about a long tunnel, a bright light and... Sign in to see full entry.

Why Doesn't God Eliminate Pain?

Sitting in the doctor’s waiting room hoping to get my sore knee diagnosed, I idly picked up a very old issue of “People” magazine. Near the back was a small article about a little girl named Ashlyn. She was described as an incredibly happy child who, according to her mother, had the best laugh in... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Is Ochocinco?

Sunday after church I watched a little of the Cincinnati football game. I am not that wild about football, but it makes my husband so happy when I watch a game with him. I’d been thinking about titles and our various roles in life, so I was especially intrigued by the Bengals’ wide receiver, #85,... Sign in to see full entry.

Mountain Climbing For Clumsy People

I am not a mountain climber. High places terrify me. Looking down makes me dizzy. With my lack of balance I know I’m going to fall. In fact, the only mountains I have ever climbed are the mole hills my character defects have inflated. I tend to create jagged cliffs for myself. Often they leave me... Sign in to see full entry.

Help-- God Put Me In A Time Out

God has put me in a “time out” and I’m not very happy about it. I am at home with no immediate opportunities for employment. I injured my knee which makes walking and even driving very painful. Every project I have attempted during the past three weeks has resulted in a resounding “no.” It feels to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Disappointing Daughter

I think I disappointed my mother. She lived in hope that by having children of my own I’d develop a little compassion for the challenges of parenting. Mom figured a few crying infants, messy toddlers, bratty pre-teens and mouthy teenagers of my own might cause her to be appreciated a bit more. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Stressed Out From Stress Management Class

I took a 3-hour Stress Management class this week and it really stressed me out. First off, I didn’t really have time to take a class. My schedule was already packed full and these three hours eliminated one evening of well-deserved rest, or better yet, time with my husband. Secondly, when the class... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Never Seen A black Swan

Whenever I travel I pray for three things: I want to bless someone. I want to be blessed by someone. And I want to meet someone interesting who teaches me something I've never considered before. Last week I went to Utah on business. My final morning there I struck up a conversation with a... Sign in to see full entry.

God, Please Stop With The Asparagus!

I really liked asparagus until yesterday. Seven girlfriends and I decided we would spend the day together and pickle asparagus. I imagined a couple dozen jars, lots of lively conversation and an ample amount of junk food. “Count me in,” I said enthusiastically. I underestimated my friend Julie’s... Sign in to see full entry.
