Happened on The Day the Sun stood still. In the book of Joshua, starting in verse twelve, tells us about the day that Joshua spoke to the sun and it stood still, extending daylight so that the Israelites defeated their enemies. Five kings fled and hid together in a cave. When Joshua received this piece … More Five hanging headless
While drinking coffee on my deck and enjoying the weather, this scripture popped into my head. For some reason, we Christians think that only special people are called to prophesy. We tend to put them on a pedestal. But the Apostle Paul tells us that we should all pursue love and desire to prophesy. He … More Coffee and prophecy
I wanted to share some scriptures. We know that Leviathan represents twisting the truth. Taking a word and twisting it so much that it becomes a lie, like what Satan said to Eve in the Garden of Eden. The day is soon coming when the Lord will reveal and expose deception. In other news, I … More Everything is being shaken
Firmament, having the word “firm” in it, sounds to me like “land”. So In Genesis 1:6, when it says: 6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were … More What the heck is firmament anyway? #Bible
I thought it was about the money. I am a white woman currently making minimum wage working in a box store for a living. You make more money in a year than I will see in my lifetime. I did not understand why you knelt for the National Anthem. How can you protest the country … More Dear Colin Kaepernick: I was wrong, and I’m sorry. #GeorgeFloyd
We all have movies we like to watch again and again. The best movies are the ones where each time you watch the movie, you notice something new and different that adds to the overall idea. I think of The Terminator–in the beginning a truck runs over and smashes a toy truck. Foreshadowing of things … More The passion of the Christ #movie #passion
Hebrews 12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the [a]author and [b]finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, … More Looking and seeing

We all know the story of the adulteress who Jesus rescued from stoning. The gang dragged her out into public, ready to hurl rocks at her. Jesus wrote something on the ground, they dropped their stones and walked away. But then Jesus told her, “Go and sin no more.” He gave her forgiveness and mercy. … More Who was supposed to cast the first stone?
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 God tells us many times to diligently seek Him. This brings to my mind pictures of a student, overwhelmed carrying a pile of books. Sweat trickles from their brow. … More DILIGENTLY #Gently
As you, my readers know, I tend to keep my blogs brief. A quick thought, something that happened, or something the Lord showed me. Today’s blog is a little more involved because, well, I have the time, and most of you do too. So here goes. I started reading in the book of Daniel about … More God’s Wheelchair
He was a red-headed young boy, about nine years old. He had a “learning disability” and was overweight, he had three eyes, and wore a colorful plaid jacket. His parents loved him very much. I dreamed this last night. I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He replied, “A banker.” … More The three eyed boy #different #unique
Winter is always tough for me. I dislike being cold, obviously; it’s so much fuss to put on layers of clothes just to go to the mailbox or take Bailey outside. I try to keep myself busy of course. There’s always things to do, read, write, nap, watch movies (isn’t winter a great time to … More I fell into a deep depression…
My bible study group is reading The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer, originally published in 1948. Tozer’s style of writing is not what we are used to; his sentences have a different cadence than modern writers. Sentence structure is longer. The spiritual truths Tozer shares are deep. We have decided as we study this book to … More Mornings with A. W. Tozer part 1 #Fire #LindseyStirling
I came into work yesterday and my department was already busy. Instead of having a few minutes to read emails, check the job queue, and get settled, I immediately had to ring up a customer’s order. There was chaos all around me, so I was not concentrating on the task. I handed him his receipt, … More Seventeen cents made my day
I woke up in the middle of the night, and felt God drop something into my spirit. I am not sure what the total package is yet, but I fell back to sleep and had a dream. A friend of mine was celebrating a birthday, and serving decorated cupcakes instead of a cake. Miniature figures, … More A swan dream
January is slow for retail. Hours have been cut in my store and I was taken from my department to run the front register. I thought back to when I was a kid, and I watched the women who worked the checkout register in the grocery store. Things were different then–the registers did not run … More Do plastic bags offend you?

January 6 is always a tough day for me. It’s the anniversary of a loss I experienced as a teenager. This year, I found out that someone I knew died the day after Christmas. It saddened me. This person was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in October, and he’s gone already. I know that he … More In Heaven, you don’t have to pee.
There was a saying a few years ago: “Practice Random Acts of Kindness.” It meant hold a door open for someone, smile at a stranger, give a lonely person a smile. Whatever you could find to do. It seemed that someone came up with this idea to make the word a better place. Actually, God … More random vs. not random
