Additional Thoughts on “Talented?”

Does it matter what others think? Allison Miller commented on my post “Talented?” and said (in part): I’m rather creative myself and I enjoy letting others know it, and hearing what they think abt it. Surprisingly, the thought of “Oh, they might think I’m...
My Prayer for You, Brother in Christ

My Prayer for You, Brother in Christ

I pray you’ll be like Abel, pleasing God with your offering. I pray you’ll be like Enoch, walking with God. I pray you’ll be like Noah, obeying God even when others laugh at you. I pray you’ll be like Abraham, following God wherever He leads, giving others first...

I pray you’ll be like Eve, “mother of…living.” I pray you’ll be like Sarah, following your husband and receiving a new name from God. I pray you’ll be like Rebekah, working hard to be kind to others and being an answer to others’ prayers (Genesis...

Snow-shine

Today I decided to share some verses (and thoughts) related to snow. 😉 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Psalm 51:7 (KJV) Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they...

Glorify God in Eating

Glorify God in Eating

I’m a Mennonite. Mennonites have this thing for food–at least, the ones I know. Almost every time a group gets together, there’s food. A non-Mennonite man who attended my church for awhile declared that we could gather on the top of the water tower...

A starving child. A rebellious teen. A hardened criminal. An angry and hurting foster child. A rambunctious kid. A single mother. An elderly person. A divorced couple. A widow/widower. A young person sitting in the youth bench. A pastor. A soldier. A newlywed. Face...
Resolutions

Resolutions

In 2019, I wrote an article for Priceless about resolutions. For the new year, you make a resolution, right? … I have a confession to make here. Usually when I make a resolution, I don’t keep it. I don’t do what I said I would do; in fact, I often...
