the magnetic pull of focus

One day spent in Your house, this beautiful place of worship, beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches. I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin. Psalm 84:10 MSG I love to worship. It is the one thing I like best afterContinue reading “the magnetic pull of focus”

bedazzled? beware!

Over coffee last night, a girl friend and I were sharing a bit of our backgrounds & story with one another….as new girlfriends are likely to do as part of our get to know each other chats (Right girlfriends ;D) She mentioned how sometimes when something seems to good to be true, it is aContinue reading “bedazzled? beware!”

God is…Faithful

Faithful. We don’t often see faithfulness as a quality to be admired in our culture today.

This title would not let me go: Womb with a view. What else would you call it? Jesus, one third of the Trinity, enfolded His divinity with the help of Holy Spirit and became flesh, bone & blood in a virgin’s womb. Wow. Just that action, a flash of a nanomoment in human time, sentContinue reading “womb with a view”

waterfall

There is a waterfall up ahead. How wet you get depends on how close you get to the water. God’s love runs deeper than we can fathom higher than our eye can see stronger than death or illness wider than the horizon is off afar a tap missing a shut off valve, it keeps goingContinue reading “waterfall”
