In the Season of Waiting

I'm a housewife. I think the role is honorable. I think it is even Biblical. I am my husband's helper. I cook, I clean, I love. And I love it. But I'm pace-y. Fidgity. I want to do something. I hate sitting around waiting. It's got to be one of the worst things ever. I… Continue reading In the Season of Waiting

It is Profitable: The Warning before Judgment (Part 2 on Matthew 5)

I read Matthew 5 verse 20 and felt sick to my stomach. "For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." Goodness. Maybe it's just me. In that moment I could have just easily closed… Continue reading It is Profitable: The Warning before Judgment (Part 2 on Matthew 5)

Blessed: Part 1 of 2. Delving Deeper into Matthew 5

Yesterday I was reading Matthew chapter 5. I had to stop here and laugh. Yesterday I pointed out in an Instagram post that I was "reproved" gently yesterday for doing the opposite of "what I preach". In fact, that's the greatest reason for me going "against the grain" and blogging again so soon after my… Continue reading Blessed: Part 1 of 2. Delving Deeper into Matthew 5

Break My Heart for What Breaks Yours

It could very well be that I'm a smush. Too tender-hearted. Too emotional. I should backtrack. Yesterday I was singing. I've been struggling to get words out in prayer for a week or so and I long for the communion I'm missing with my Father, and I know that He inhabits the praises of His… Continue reading Break My Heart for What Breaks Yours

In Search of Beauty: A Short Exhortation to all Women, Young and Old

"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But "which becometh women professing godliness) with good works." 1 Timothy 2:9-10 When did we as women begin believing the lie that we need an inch of product on… Continue reading In Search of Beauty: A Short Exhortation to all Women, Young and Old

A Godly Sort

Sundays are a strange day for me. I'm never sure what I should do. During the week I have everything hammered down into a schedule. Saturdays are more difficult as my husband is home and I have to go do groceries and I've slept in, and, and... Sundays just throw me. Lazy? Or flesh? I… Continue reading A Godly Sort

Second Chances

I've been perplexed for the last little while. I've read so many different "helps" when it comes to blogging. They say it's best to keep to a schedule so that the readers know when to expect new material. They say it's best to schedule ahead. Maybe every third Monday is recipes. That is not for… Continue reading Second Chances

The Plan II: The Day of the Lord

It isn't hard to see why people become infatuated with apocalyptic events and the like. Before I knew it, I was one of the, well, goodness knows how many, that had thousands of ideas and plans built up, compiled on Pinterest. I'd scoff a little at the reasons behind (I would dare to say) the… Continue reading The Plan II: The Day of the Lord

The Plan

Once upon a time there was a silly girl. No, that's too kind. Once upon a time there was a foolish girl. She grew up under admonition not to play with fire, but as soon as she was on her own, she spurned the warning and played with fire. It was only mercy she was… Continue reading The Plan

The Joneses’ Can Have It

I'm at a conflict. Not quite as pious as Paul was when he wrote that he was in a similar dilemma. On one hand he desired to be with the Lord, which is far better, and on the other hand he knew he wasn't finished his job given to him by Jesus Himself. Me.. well,… Continue reading The Joneses’ Can Have It
