Are you playing your part?

Is spring bursting around you? I've seen evidence at every turn. The cherry trees were the first to bloom around here. The Bradford Pear trees were next. While they look beautiful, they smell like a basket of stinky socks. I haven't seen a butterfly yet. I'm still looking because my grandmother used to tell me I couldn't go barefooted until I've seen a white butterfly. Don't tell her, but I cheat and kick my shoes off at the first sign of spring. One of the things I have noticed lately is the symphony of birds outside each morning. They play [...]

Give or take?

Do you like getting gifts? What about receiving them? I love, love, love to give people gifts. One of my favorite parts of Christmas is gift giving. I honestly have more fun watching people open the gifts I give them, than opening gifts myself, especially when it's something they weren't expecting. This Christmas my husband was the one I was able to surprise in a big way. He had opened all of his gifts, or so he thought, when I started looking around the room as if I was searching for something. I told him he had one more gift [...]

Christmas May Be Over, But Your Still Have Gifts to Open

Do you ever think God gets frustrated? Do you ever picture Him sitting on His throne just shaking His head wondering if we'll ever get it? I'm certain I'm responsible for some of those head shakes. What sort of things do you think could frustrate Him? What do you think could causes Him to look at Jesus and say, "Seriously?" I believe one of the things that could frustrates Him is when we continually ask Him for things He's already given us, yet we've failed to receive. For example, almost every time I'm around someone praying, at some point in [...]

The Perfect Gift for Anyone On Your List

Have you ever done Gary Chapman's Five Love Languages test to see what your primary love language is? You don't get to choose your love language. You answer a series of questions and based on your answers you're told what your primary love language is, which is not only the best way for people to express love to you, but it's the predominate way you express love. My predominate love language is gifts. I love, love, love giving people gifts. I love every aspect of it: choosing the right gift, wrapping it, but most of all delivering it. Acts 20:35 [...]

Do you want to be a Superhero?

Did you grow up watching the super heroes on television?  I have two brothers, so I saw nearly every episode of Batman, Superman, The Incredible Hulk, and more.  We also watched Wonder Woman. Even as young children, we all like to believe there are people in the world who will go the extra mile to help others. We all need a hero. Unfortunately, they seem harder and harder to find in our world. There are people who will gladly give and do for those they deem worthy, but there are others who never seem to catch a break, never have [...]
