Sawdust or a Plank?

Web I’ve always been a bit suspicious of anyone who is overly outspoken about their happy marriage when flirting suggestively with someone else. One of the strangest cases, on a political board I used to frequent, was the case of Christine. Much like the car of Stephen King fame, Christine was the stuff of nightmares. She had been posting on this particular board for about four month, and had already been through seven ID’s that we knew of….

Living Single in a Secular World

Growing up I had a fondness for top 40 music, and I have always enjoyed the seemingly innocuous croonings of any of the pop icons from Whitney Houston to Jewel. However, as the years passed the meanings behind lyrics like “When can I hold you, when can I touch you…?” became more poignant… and unsettling. After all, I was a single woman and had been given no spouse or even serious dating partner to hold (or touch). The same thing…

Do You Ever Feel Lonely?

Do you ever feel lonely or forgotten, as if you’re caught in a mass camouflage of the chaos of life? Like your individuality is lost in your title or performance, whether it be at work or home? Particularly this time of year, when the pace is kicked into high gear. But, there is One who never looses you in a crowd, God sings over you at night (Ps. 42:8) and His favor surrounds you like a shield (Ps 5:12). He…

The Snout of the Swine

Web Proverbs 22: As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. Recently I had the experience twice of picking the wrong people to confide in. The first was Christine, a young woman who had come to me seeking advice. During the process of trying to relate to her situation, I shared one bit of personal information with her. That info came back to bite me time and time…
