Today I saw a picture of the hands of a potter as he forms a clay vessel on the potter’s wheel. I’ve seen pictures like it before, but today I noticed, especially, the dirtiness of the potter’s hands. Of course, that makes sense that if you are working with clay, you will get your hands… Read More The Potter’s Hands

This evening I got a bit frustrated with the changes that suddenly happened (again) while I was trying to edit on my wordpress blog. They have developed a new format, and there must be some glitches that have been happening; it’s very discouraging for me because I’m so NOT tech savvy, and tech changes are… Read More What a Glorious Day that will Be
Dear LORD, We thank You and praise You for being a covenant-making and covenant-keeping God!

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You absorbed the bitter punishment for my sin. As You hung up there on the cross, all my sins and the sins of the whole world were laid on You.

Everybody who has experienced grief grieves in a different way. There is no one-size-fits-all grief plan, “How to Grieve 101”. When I became a single parent of three, the grief was intense. But I had to push through and start a new life in a new (yet not-so-new) place. I remember, on occasion, wiping tears… Read More Slow Grief
A few weeks ago I finally went out to the apple tree in our back yard and picked and knocked down the rest of the apples. I had not been able to get to them because of the tyranny of the urgent that caring for my mom had brought in addition to all my other… Read More Rotten to the Core?
I try so hard and struggle In this race of life for God I pedal hard, get going fast, As I travel down the road. But then I turn a corner And I lose a little steam, Pedal harder once again To do well for my team. Even when the sun is shining, And the… Read More Life’s Race

Have you ever noticed how many power poles look like a cross? As I was driving along the other day I was thinking about that, and how the pole is not what brings us the power, even though it is necessary for the process. Rather, it holds the cables that bring us the power. Those… Read More How Do We Get Power?
Welcome to Worship with me! I invite you to pray with me the following, from your heart: Thank You, Lord, that You are able! You were able to bring Your people across the Red Sea!

Thank You, Lord, that this is the day that You have made. I will rejoice and be glad in it! Lord, You didn’t attach any conditions to these verses. You didn’t say that there are some days that You didn’t make, and you didn’t say we don’t have to rejoice on days when everything seems… Read More Worship with me #18
Lonely crow up in the tree, He’s as high as he can be. He looks around from left to right, And enjoys his view from this great height. One with his branch, he sways to and fro, So very few worries does he know. But suddenly with his watchful eye, Threatening danger he does spy!… Read More Free to Fly

Have you ever felt like some people are extremely hard to love? I’m guessing most of you can think of at least one person like that (if not, just give it a few years!) Several days ago, I started reading a really good book by Max Lucado called A Love Worth Giving, and already a few… Read More Steps toward Love
Jesus’ plan all along was to suffer as a substitutionary sacrifice to satisfy the legal demands of God’s justice in order to offer us pardon. His costly gift deserves our willing devotion to Him.… Read More Christ’s Willing, Loving Sacrifice
Flippantly I skip up to the foot of a cross. I look up; yeah some guy died for me. flippantly I think, that’s nice, yeah he died for my sins; I believe it and I’m glad. Can we just skirt around the subject now? Or maybe we could teleport from this side to the other?… Read More What Kind of Love…?
