And he [Jesus] answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27 RSV This morning we read Luke chapter 10 and once again the idea of my Biblical “heart” representing…

is it a conspiracy?

For the Lord spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: “Do not call conspiracy all that this people call conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. But the Lord of hosts, him you shall…

depression ?

Some days getting out of bed is almost too much of a chore. Some days feel like wading though Elmer’s glue. Some days there is no motivation, to do anything. Some days inspiring someone else is impossible, because it seems impossible to be inspired. Is this depression? Sooner or later most of us experience some…

who are ‘they’ ?

Have you noticed how many times lately we’re told “they” have said, (or mandated) this or that? A few days ago I decided to ask God to show me exactly who “THEY” are. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will…

be happy

Grace and peace on your Tuesday Dear Hearts ❤ This morning I was reminded Happiness is making the most of what you have. Paul’s letter to the Galatians tells us: “It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking…

keys to the Kingdom

In certain Christian circles the tradition of “binding and loosing” may extend all the way from binding ‘a spirit of snoring’ to loosing ‘my perfect personal trainer’. I’m here to tell you — those are the wrong keys! Don’t misunderstand me please. I’ve tried opening the doors to God’s Kingdom using those very keys myself.…

Psalm 91:4

Grace and peace on your Tuesday Dear Hearts I’m reading Psalm 91 again today, letting the promises soak into my soul (my mind, my will and my emotions). These verses have sustained us throughout the chaos of 2020/2021 and there’s no reason to imagine they won’t withstand whatever may present itself going forward, for all…

be joyful now

Now…amid all the chaos of our world…every one of us has faced moments of fear and anxiety. Fear (the reaction of choice encouraged by the mainstream media right now) and anxiety (or worry) are really forms of unnecessary suffering. Instead let’s learn to be happy/joyful NOW!  Not someday: when the kids are back in school, or the…

better today

This morning, during my quiet time I looked at the blank spaces in my daily calendar and realized it has been over a month since I’ve done much of anything except pray, sleep and nurse whatever was going on in my body. What a huge waste of days! But, I’m better today. And, in the…
