In Pursuit of Lasting Results

      No Comments on In Pursuit of Lasting Results

I have a friend who refuses to iron more than one piece of clothing at a time. She believes that dying with a closet full of clean, pressed clothes would be testimony to a wasted life. Why bother ironing something you may never get the chance to wear? “I”d much rather spend my time mowing the lawn,” my friend confides…. Read more »

“How can we understand the road we travel? It is the Lord who directs our steps.” (Proverbs 20:24, New Living Translation) If we consider a hike through the woods as a metaphor for the Christian walk, it is easy to understand our need to stay on the narrow way. To leave that path is to risk danger, disorientation, and destruction…. Read more »

My Sunday “To-Do” List

Do you ever daydream during worship services? Even as your lips sing the words to the songs and hymns, does your mind flit to memories from the past week or plans for the next?

Who Needs a Dinner Bell?

      No Comments on Who Needs a Dinner Bell?

The first home we ever owned was situated at the mouth of a cozy little cul-de-sac, which gave every neighbor on the block an unobstructed view of our house and yard. Clearly, then, my husband was not thinking of my reputation when he slapped the lid on my flaming hash-browns one Saturday morning and rushed out to the front curb… Read more »

My baby is cutting teeth right now. Literally. She’s lying on a pillow in my lap, nursing even as I type. About the time I think she has fallen asleep and can be transferred back to her crib, she makes another last-ditch effort to help those central incisors break the surface. It’s a painful experience for both of us. I’ve… Read more »

How May I Help You?

I  was having trouble with my Internet connection at home today, so I called customer service and was promptly connected with tech support in India. I spent about 45 minutes on the phone with a very helpful Indian man who asked me lots of questions about my connection problem. Before I hung up, I said, “May I ask you a… Read more »

New Year’s Resolutions

I’ve been after my husband to begin blogging in the New Year, as I think he has a lot of wisdom that ought to be shared.  Yet, it doesn’t seem right to ask him to do something I’m not willing to do myself, so I’ve decided to start a blog of my own as well. We’ll see which of us… Read more »
