What We Feed Ourselves

Our selfishness is our demise. This morning I was on the deteriorating social networking site called Facebook. In my experience, the world is becoming more and more consumed by the opposite of selflessness, and the occasional scrolls through the feed on the site are often a reminder. Sure, there are many good things about the site. We can keep up with distant family, share in … Continue reading What We Feed Ourselves

Father Knows Best

I do wish that I could write about my father in a way that praises him for being a more loving one. My dad was a very private man as I was growing up. He never wanted to spend his time with me. He would get me set up with a project, only after my mother had suggested it, and then go about his business. … Continue reading Father Knows Best

The Atrocities Of Our Pride

Something really spoke to me this morning. I thought I would take a few minutes to write about something that I find within myself, and maybe you do too? That nasty thing that God hates; Pride. It may be a little harsh to say that God hates pride. I’m only going there because it’s evident that He most certainly wasn’t okay with it when He … Continue reading The Atrocities Of Our Pride

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  -Galatians 5:22-23. It has been such a life-changing period of time for my family and I throughout the last year. It is truly amazing how simply choosing a different attitude can transform one into a totally different individual. My part in the … Continue reading The Laws Of Love

Do Not Sound Trumpets To Be Seen

On several occasions I have written about giving to those in need. I’d like to talk about why I do. There was a time within my life when I was extremely greedy. I didn’t have any compassion for others and, to me, the world really owed me. In my eyes, since I had endured so much pain and suffering against my will throughout my early … Continue reading Do Not Sound Trumpets To Be Seen

His Timing Is Not Ours

There is a little creek not far from our home. The road that I travel in the morning on my way to work runs over the top of the creek. I had stopped the other day to admire the beauty. The way the sun was shining through the trees that morning captured my attention. I’m not sure where this body of water runs to? It … Continue reading His Timing Is Not Ours

“You Really Get On My Nerves, But I Still Love You!”

Originally posted on My Journey:
My kids are just that; kids. They are rambunctious, rebellious at times and full of energy that cannot be contained. They drive their mother and I up the wall. We get frustrated with them. Our patience is pushed to the limits. We sometimes find ourselves raising our voices, taking privileges away and grounding them. Some days are easier than others… Continue reading “You Really Get On My Nerves, But I Still Love You!”
