Convinced or Convicted

If I’m going to be honest, I have convinced myself of a lot of false truths in my life.  When I was a child I was convinced that if I rolled my eyes too often then they could really get stuck.  I was also convinced that swallowing a piece of gum would take 7 yearsContinue reading “Convinced or Convicted”

_______ women/men CAN’T, WON’T, DON’T go to Heaven

Could you find a word to put in the blank? Murderous?  Slanderous?  Adulterous? Maybe another word for people you think won’t be admitted into Heaven or maybe you think your name would go on the blank because of some sin that separates you from God.  Well, there is only one word that goes there…UNSAVED.  ThereContinue reading “_______ women/men CAN’T, WON’T, DON’T go to Heaven”

I Loved You First

“I love you, I love you more, I loved you first.”  Everyone wants to be loved, to know their value and worth to others, yet for so many, there is a lingering disappointment that we aren’t loved fully and completely by others.  We were designed to crave love, to feel secure and nurtured, to feelContinue reading “I Loved You First”

Time to Get Some Glasses

    If I don’t have my contacts or my glasses on I am almost blind.  I am nearsighted and have perfect vision when things are up close, but from across a small room, I wouldn’t be able to recognize my own husband and kids.  Most of the time this isn’t a problem because I amContinue reading “Time to Get Some Glasses”

Our Conversation Hearts Need to Change

When I was in elementary school I loved to get conversation hearts on Valentine’s Day.  It wasn’t so much about the flavor as the cute words printed on the candies.  They were full of fun sayings and silly greetings.  I never gave them to anyone, but they brought a smile to my face reminding meContinue reading “Our Conversation Hearts Need to Change”

You’re Wrong

I am a Christian and in my opinion you are wrong. Have I made anyone uncomfortable yet?  If I said this statement to you in person, your jaw might drop.  As you read this your shock might tempt you to unsubscribe, unfollow, and even unfriend me (both online and in person).  For my non-Christian friendsContinue reading “You’re Wrong”
