Love So Deep

  The little guy couldn’t believe what he saw. It was a brand new world for him. God knelt down and said, “You’re here for a purpose. You’re part of my plan.” The little one said, “Ok, but I’m so small, I’m scared I won’t be strong enough.” God said “Don’t worry, I’ll protect you. […]

An Empty Heart and an Open Door

“My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready.” Psalm 108:1  ABPE I hosted my entire family this past Christmas Eve. It was my year. It was my turn. I wanted to do it up grand. But where do you seat 40 people, together, when you don’t own a mansion? Yes, 40! My only […]

A Little Window Washing

“…we too may live a new life.” Romans 6:4 We had our windows cleaned the other day. Yes, I hire someone to do them—please don’t hate. It takes him no time at all to get it done–he has his squeegee thingy, a stack of soft cloths, just the right fluid mixture. Me, on the other hand…a spray […]

I’m not excited about Christmas cards, Christmas carols, or Christmas lights. The rushing, shopping, cooking, and partying have all […]

“Thus by their fruit you will recognize them.” Matthew 7:20 NIV       Apples have gotten a bad rap…biblically speaking, that is.   THE very first sin had to do with an apple. Well, not really an apple, in fact the actual type of fruit is unknown, but somehow the “forbidden fruit” that ol’ […]

What Are You Taking?

“And this is the way to have eternal life–to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.” John 17:3 NIV   We’ve had quite a week here in Southern California—(San Diego County).     Brush fires gripped just about every city in the county. Evacuations, homes lost, property […]


“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…” John 10:10 NIV     My husband had to point it out to me.   I completely walked past without even noticing.   When I doubled back, we stood and stared and then laughed.       I feel bad for the owner, I really […]
