God Pursues Us All

My friend Caralyn is a brilliant writer, and her work at Beauty Beyond Bones is priceless. I can't wait to read her memoir Bloom that is in route to my house as I type this sentence. Her faith stands out for me in a sea of darkness that seeks to snuff it out. I know … Continue reading God Pursues Us All

His Will For Mankind

Thank you Joe Beam for writing Seeing The Unseen. It gives me hope in light of the evil I face. Language is important when battling evil. The reason the Bible is living and active is because it's message is continually creating language such that is found in books like Seeing The Unseen.

After I finished cleaning that house … Continue reading Tossing and Turning

I Like Mary

...but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. The Bible is just amazing. No wonder it's the best selling book year after year. The above verse from Luke 2 was just after Jesus was born. Here's another one. And His (capitalization is mine) mother stored all these things in … Continue reading I Like Mary

Moved by the Son

It's overwhelming sometimes how the negative overshadows the positive. I was just trying to take a nap, but my mind would not rest. I started quoting a verse from memory, and it settled down a bit, but I still had to get up and come here to write. I don't write on any particular schedule … Continue reading Moved by the Son
