TOUGH LOVE

“Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those whoContinue reading “TOUGH LOVE”

PRO-CHOICE PASTORS? NO PRAYERS FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST? YES

Jesus said, “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to stumble. Be on your guard. If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.” Luke 17:2-3 CSB IContinue reading “PRO-CHOICE PASTORS? NO PRAYERS FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST? YES”

Serve

Last fall, my small group of primary caregivers—Shining Lights—adopted a local nursing home as a service project.

Love at a Wedding: Love Letter #1

At least mine did on a crisp fall afternoon while witnessingContinue reading “Love at a Wedding: Love Letter #1”

Love on Base. Love Letter #4  

He went by the name of Johnny Boy. Her name is still Shirley. He was a 20-year-old widow, Shirley, the mother of two small children. He enlisted into the Army, she into the Air Force. But neither of them had known the other until one late afternoon in Hawaii. I hope you enjoy Love Letter #4. 

The Real Deal

After a month, or so, of computer issues–ARGH!!! (I’m giving y’all my best pirate imitation)–I am back with a new love letter. It is the fourth in my season of scripting short stories about love. My prayer is that I will consistently practice writing flash and micro-fiction while completing the final edits to my debutContinue reading “The Real Deal”

Why Fight?

I HAD to create a word image out of this Joel Osteen quote! 🔥 To remind myself: “We fight too many battles that don’t matter. If a battle is not between you and your destiny, it’s a distraction. It’s the enemy trying to lure you off course when a new level is waiting for you.”Continue reading “Why Fight?”
