The state of affairs in the church

Wanted to share a blog from someone I highly respect in the Christian world.  Welcome any comments.

Fresh Beginnings


A few days ago I was meandering by the school supplies displayed in a local store and it brought back some sweet memories. Do you remember as a child preparing for the first day of school? Even though we didn't want summer to end, a new beginning brought excitement. At our house we had some special rituals. We would spend a whole day shopping, gathering all our required supplies from the published lists, and then we would go get new shoes and a new dress.

Heeding the Voice

It's mid-August and I feel as though I missed summer altogether.  Most of you know that we spent weeks in another city in cancer treatment, which ate up our summer, or at least it felt that way.  Now, as the days get shorter and cooler and people are longing for Fall, I feel a little cheated out of my summer nights out on the deck.  Here in the mountains, summer is heavenly without the blazing heat in the valleys below.  At least we still have a few weeks of warm enough weather to be outdoors a bit before the cold arrives.

At peace with everyone?


Do you ever have days where you wonder if you actually landed from another planet? Lately there have been several times when people's behaviors toward me caused me to stop and scratch my head, wondering how I missed something. I have two people in my life, a married couple, who are there without being family or close friends, but still are there. For some unknown reason, they just do not like me.

Resting is a choice

Happy Fall Y'all!!

It really thrilled my heart to learn that a couple of people verbalized missing my blog posts.  Thanks!  Life has been really crazy in my world the past few months.  We've had two deaths in our family, one near death, two in cancer treatment, and various less-serious crises befalling us.  I have no doubt that you too have been battling the ills of life.

Time is growing short

What is the most important decision you have ever made in your life?  Before you made that decision, did you take a lot of time contemplating it and weighing the pros and cons?  Did you get input from those you respect?

Pushing through the dirt


This morning is one of those I've longed for over the winter months. My deck overlooks a glorious forest of evergreens, purple mountains and vast blue skies. It's almost heaven, to mimic John Denver a bit. To sit in my rocking chair, sipping hot coffee, reading the Psalms and talking to my Father is the best day I could ever hope for. I can hear in the distance the sounds of my girls laughing, some rather strange bird calls down the hillside somewhere, and the sizzling of bacon as my husband prepares it.

10 Characteristics of False Teachers

10 Characteristics of False Teachers


The Bible says that a great deception, or great apostasy will come on the land before the return of Jesus. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3) It is here! The sad fact is that most of the “elect” or those who call themselves Christians, have no clue that they are being led astray by false teachers. (“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.”(Matthew 24:24-25, NKJV). They assume that because some teacher has thousands following him/her, that they have to be teaching sound doctrine. Most also have not taken any time to lift that possibility up to the Lord and ask for His insight and discernment. If you ask for His warning flags, He will give them. Don't assume anything.
