Many of us have been privy to a conversation where a child insulted someone and was scolded, “Now Johnny, that was not very kind…” And, of course, if someone does something mean, we would call that action unkind. But are inconsiderate, mischievous, and hateful actions and words the only ways of being unkind? What is… Read More The Opposite of Kindness
Hi, and welcome! 🙂 I was debating over whether I should continue the “Worship with me” series in this new year, and I discovered that I personally need to keep the awesomeness of the Lord before me. So, I decided to continue writing down my words of worship and sharing them with you. Please feel… Read More Worship with me #42

A few other translations say, “You stoop down to make… Read More Gentle Jesus
When I was younger, I had a really hard time understanding what holiness was. I knew God was Holy, Holy, Holy. And I knew that we were supposed to try to be holy. But I found all of that really confusing. Somehow, in trying to piece it all together, I got the idea that God… Read More What is Holiness?

Last night I had a dream. In my dream I was in a bare room facing a wall with 6 cubbies attached directly to the wall, three on top of 3. Each cubby had an electrical outlet in the center with things plugged into the outlets. Then, suddenly, for no apparent reason, the bottom center… Read More Help, I’m in a Nightmare!
