Miriam the Prophetess

Right after I posted my blog on “Taming the Tongue”, I saw a Pinterest post that caught my eye. It was a list of notable biblical characters and their flaws. Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, and what really caught my eye: Miriam the prophetess was a gossip! Courageous …

Lydia of Thyatira

I was tidying up a guest room in our house recently; it used to be our youngest child’s room. She has one drawer of her “stuff” there. Seeing that drawer reminded me of a piece of “purple cloth” that she kept for years. She had received it in Sunday school when learning about Lydia of …

Pruning in the Bible

This is my forsythia bush. It is a great metaphor to show us how pruning in the Bible works.  I’ve never grown one before, however, and as I looked at it this week, I saw what a tangled mess it had become. Some pruning was definitely in order. I actually love pruning my plants, trees, …

The Last Supper Communion

I’ve been contemplating how Jesus instituted the Last Supper Communion. I was raised in a church that celebrated communion every week.  A deep solemnness was instilled in me regarding celebrating communion. It was a time for reflection- of ourselves and Jesus’ sacrifice.

The Promised Messiah

  As I was doing some reading in Mark, I came across the title of one of the chapters as “Jesus Predicts His Death the Third Time.” Hmmm. Three times. So I went back and looked at the other two predictions. That started me thinking about why it was so hard for the disciples to …

Following Jesus

    It’s not a secret in my family that I am “directionally challenged”. In the years before GPS was commonplace, I completely relied on my 3-inch thick map book to get around. I could drive somewhere and get completely turned around on the way home. Heaven help me and my sister when we are …
