The Only Unfailing Security System

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him. ~ Psalms 32:10 What’s the best security system for your home? I know it would not be our big Collie. Bo lays at the backdoor. Bo can open that door, if he uses the full force of his weight, but he doesn’t go out the door unless he perceives no one is watching. He’s more worried about escaping than protecting. Companies {Read More}

A Mother’s Love

In his book No Wonder They Call Him Savior (Multnomah Press, 1986), Max Lucado told the story of a mother and daughter who lived in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of a Brazilian village.

Love in a Box

It’s just a shoebox filled with dollar store items. It sounded like a nice Christmas tradition to start all those years ago when our teens were just little things. Back then we made two boxes and talked about more. When two more children came along, each child filled their own shoebox. Two years ago God touched our hearts, asked a question, and changed my family. God whispered… “What if it was your child? One box to touch the life of {Read More}

The Mess that Blesses ~ Loving Others

Only a few friends see my house when it’s a mess. They’re the same ones that let me in their messy homes. Only a few friends hear when my life feels like a mess; they’re the same ones who’ve shared their messy lives with me. But I wonder how many times I don’t host an event because my house looks less-than-perfect. Wouldn’t someone appreciate hospitality even if my home looked less Martha Stewart and more Ann Stewart? Sometimes Martha can {Read More}

Love that Stands

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well….” [Philippians 1: 9 The Message] Everyone knows that life is not a bowl of cherries—life is often hard and the bowl often becomes a pit and love seems to ‘go down the drain.’ The depth and type of love Paul speaks of is not a soft, sentimental feeling—but tough, persistent, resistant to worldly ways and able to keep going when {Read More}

Love

I once was looking for love and I could not find it. It eluded me for many years. That which I believed to be love was only a vanishing mist over the waters of fantasy; the deep waters of fantasy. I dared to dip my toe past the mist into the cool wetness of liquid reality. Refreshing as it was, still it was not truth. I once was looking for love. “I’ve been calling out to you,” said Love, “You {Read More}

Fake Love or Real Love?

Love. Seems like everyone is selling it. Seems like every commercial offers it if you just… Just what? If I act right. If I live right. If I look right. If I do what you want. Or what he wants. Love is available if I pay for it. With money. With keeping my mouth shut. With doing what everyone else wants. With giving up my dreams. What if I don’t want love anymore? I’m tired of all this love that {Read More}

Sisters by Choice
