Practice Abounding Love

Good Morning! The weekend is almost here. I am not sure how we are 6 days into March already. But, here we are ready for Spring-like temperatures next week. I have been thinking about other people's opinions. Some people are extremely vocal about their opinions and views. Others quietly smile and nod, and you wonder… Continue reading Practice Abounding Love

Your Life Is a Prize

Good morning! Valentine's Day is on Friday. Are you ready to celebrate love? Love is an important part of life. Love makes us happy. Love lights us up from within.

Corinthians, John


Next Friday is Valentine's Day. My kids are excited to exchange cards with their classmates and eat cupcakes. It is all cute and fun. I had to look up the history of Valentine's Day. It seems to have involved Christians converting people, miracles of healing, bishops secretly marring couples and executions. I can't make this stuff… Continue reading Love

Knowledge Puffs Up, But Love Edifies

We all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up. I know some obnoxious people who think that they know everything. It can be painful to be around these people. It feels like a constant lecture, and it can be, well, boring. Instead, of impressing us with their knowledge, its irritating and condescending. After spending time with these… Continue reading Knowledge Puffs Up, But Love Edifies

God’s Love Compared To Toxic Relationships

When you truly believe in Jesus, your heart changes. We still live in a world with everyone else, good people, bad people, believers, and unbelievers.

I… Continue reading God’s Love Compared To Toxic Relationships


Pursue the Goodness of God

After we had children, I really wanted to teach them things that I did not know growing up. I want their lives to easier. I don't want them to make the mistakes that I made. I love how the epistles of Paul tell us how to live our lives. Paul wrote letters to the newly… Continue reading Pursue the Goodness of God

Replace Fear With Power, Love and a Sound Mind

In this morning's bible study, the leader asked if any of us had fear. Many of us raised our hands. It was interesting that we read about fear two days before Halloween. I didn't think about Halloween at all, as we read the scripture verses on fear. There are plenty of ways to be afraid… Continue reading Replace Fear With Power, Love and a Sound Mind

Paul, Trusting in God

An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination

I don't know why I get surprised by the goodness of God. God does amazing things for us. When I let go of my worries and give them to God, amazing things happen. I worry. I get stressed out. I try and control the situation, which just gets worse. Then, finally, I truly let go… Continue reading An Outcome Beyond Our Imagination
