No Plan B

I am a planner.  I almost always have a Plan A, and I set my mind toward achieving it.  Often, I will also think up a Plan B or even a Plan C, although disappointment, frustration, and occasional child-like tantrums sometimes ensue if I am forced to move ...

Those Darn Mosquitoes

Those Darn Mosquitoes

I have often made the comment, especially while itching around little pink bumps, “What good purpose could God have for mosquitoes?”  Colossians 1:16 reminds me He has indeed created all things for his good purposes, but mosquitoes?  Are you sure?

Getting Rid of Bitterness

A friend of mine recently gave me a copy of “How to Be Free From Bitterness” by Jim Wilson. I don’t think of myself as being a bitter person, but reading the article illuminated some seeds of bitterness that may be growing in my heart and instilled urgency in uprooting ...

Unlimited Time for Relationships

Over Christmas break, I realized again a feeling I have experienced before—that time with friends and family is never quite enough. My parents visited for a few days leading up to Christmas, and with holiday events and getting kids to bed late, our nightly time to visit one-on-one was not ...

More Amazing Than Santa

One of our favorite things to do on these dark, cold winter evenings is to snuggle up for family movie night.  With Christmas approaching, my vote is usually for holiday movies—especially the classics we watch every year.  On Saturday, the kids voted for a new movie, The Christmas ...
