Crown Of Thorns Symbolism

Our first house had a row of Russian Olive trees and a walkway full of Barberry bushes. The trees were obnoxious because A) they do not produce olives you could eat, which would have been awesome, and B) they grow super sharp 3 inch thorns. The Barberry were similarly dangerous- sharp prickly thorns made pruning …

“I Thirst”

“I thirst“- Jesus.  He must have been horribly dehydrated.  Can you think of a time when you’ve experienced extreme thirst? It’s hard because we are fortunate to have access to drinking water most anywhere we go. We turn on a tap, carry it around with us, buy it in the store, and can get it …

The Pearl of Great Price

When I inherited my Grandma’s pearl necklace,  I took them to my favorite trusted jeweler for cleaning and appraisal. They returned them in a beautiful velvet-lined box with the words, “They’re not real, but they cleaned up beautifully.” I never forgot their kind words and actions and how much they cared for my treasure. My …

God’s Unfailing Love

We’ve all known love in our lives but changing human emotions limit our love. In this week’s blog, we will soak up the essence of what “God is love” means.  God’s unfailing love knows no human boundaries and is impossible to fully comprehend. We’ve heard it as children in the song- “Jesus Loves Me” and …

We Have an Altar

I’ve had a song stuck in my head for a week.  It’s “Come to the Altar” by Elevation Worship.  The words “come to the altar” sound like a blessed invitation.   Altars are strictly symbolic now, but I wanted to dig a little deeper into the subject. We have an altar- our hearts. So this week, …

The Lord is My Confidence

I’m a bit obsessed right now with a song called “Do It Again” by Elevation Worship. I love to grab a cup of coffee and watch the live version before I sit down to write at my computer. The lyrics that caught my attention were “I’m still in your hands, this is my confidence”.  What …

Parable of the Potter and the Clay

It’s that time of year again- fall clean up for my yard.  Part of my work included the cleaning out of my clay flower pots. While I washed them, it reminded me of the Parable of  the “Potter and the Clay.”

God’s Masterpiece

  My sister and I were out for a walk recently, and we passed an amazing mural painted on the side of a building. It’s not the style of art I’m usually attracted to, but everything about it was a bit awe-inspiring. I used it as a backdrop not only because the color and form …

Importance of Walking With God

  My husband and I try to walk each evening when the weather and schedules allow. We can discuss current events, moments from our day, worries and concerns, and share in some laughter. It’s important to make these connections within your relationships.  It also applies to the importance of walking with God.

Our Comforter

  I came across an interesting title in the book of Isaiah while doing some “Biblical wandering” this week. It is Chapter 40 and it reads “Comfort for God’s People.” A whole chapter in the Old Testament on comfort? That’s not what I was expecting when I think of the book of Isaiah. Judgment? Yes. …
