With four categories of things we should add to our love “to-do” list, we began the first week with two things we should do daily and followed the next week with things we should do weekly. Today, it’s time to consider two things to do monthly. #1: Rid yourselves of harmful residue (Huh?) Do […]
In last Sunday’s post, I asked if anyone would like me to review The Love List for a closer look at the chapters. A few of you responded favorably, so here we go! There are two things we should do daily to enhance our love relationship. First on the list is to take time to […]
Happy Valentine’s Day! For those of you who are married, what makes a big difference for you in your marriage? What makes you feel better loved? Is it when he says, “I love you”? Is it when he takes out the trash? Brings you coffee in the mornings? Brings your phone to you (ahem, 15 […]
No, our relationships aren’t perfect. But, they can come close. Even in the reflection of glassware against the day’s light, there are sometimes noticeable fingerprints…smudges. Even if they’re not noticeable, imperfection is there. And still…it is beautiful. With its imperfection, it looks perfect to our naked eye. We sometimes see a couple that seems perfect […]
At our Sunday School Christmas party Friday night, a friend read the Christmas version of I Corinthians 13. It reminds us to love… Isn’t that wonderful? Life gets so crazy at Christmas time. Our families deserve our attention and care, before devoting time for all the trappings of commercialized Christmas. If we step back and […]
The week after last Christmas, Spunky Daughter and I drove to South Mississippi to visit my parents. SD drove, and at one point she mentioned a song she plans to sing at my funeral. What? Why wait until I’m not here to hear it? I asked her to please sing it for me right then…to […]
Source The title to today’s topic reminds me of the “Jerry McGuire” movie, when his girlfriend told him, “You complete me.” Oh, the world went crazy over that line! Every one of us has the desire to find completion. We often look to our mate to fill our heart with love, comfort, joy…everything to the […]
Source During this week before Valentine’s Day, love is on our minds – showing love to our Valentine. That tune “Love is in the air…” keeps playing in my head! I’d like to travel a different path of love, while we’re on the subject. Let’s begin with God’s love. God loves you. God doesn’t express […]
Do you sometimes feel that God must be tired of putting up with you? I do. I mess up things in this life. A lot. Do you? I’ve been studying Gideon in chapter six of the book of Judges. Priscilla Shirer has written this study that I’m working my way through. She is wonderful at […]
Do I think religion is all about church? No. I believe the impact of the church has everything to do with our faith in Christ. The church universal consists of all believers, those who care for others in the name of Jesus, all around the world. Have a Spectacular Sunday, y’all!
During my high school years, this Lemon Extract Cake was better known around our house as BJ’s Fruitcake. You know BJ already, but you know her as Mom 2. She made this cake for us every Christmas for many years, and we looked forward to it very much. Yes, I said the fruitcake word. Please, […]
I love music! God speaks to me through music. How about you? This Casting Crowns CD is one of my favorites to enjoy every Christmas season, and I want to share it with you. I hope you’ll turn up the sound and enjoy the Lord’s music while you go about your day today or one […]
I’d not planned to post anything today, but I decided to connect with you today with this video. I think it will help us all remember what this day is about – and overlook some family strains that might occur. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
Holidays can be hard. When we’re in the middle of troubled times (the storms of life), it’s not a time for being thankful for the circumstances we’re in. Then, why does Paul tell us to be thankful in this I Thessalonians verse? Doesn’t he understand? James, the brother of Jesus, said basically the same thing. […]
Hi, everyone. It is another Spectacular Sunday! We had two weddings to attend yesterday. Last night, after going separate ways so that one of us could attend each wedding, we agreed that it didn’t feel right. Each of us sitting in a church pew alone while watching a young couple commit vows to each other, […]
Source I’ve met people who say they can’t accept the free gift of Christ because they have done something “unforgivable”. They don’t deserve it, they claim. Who does? That’s why it’s called grace. His grace to forgive when we deserve death. Ezekiel 33:11 says: “As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, I take […]
