Love and Marriage…

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 Love and marriage, love and marriage...that's the theme song to one of my husband's sitcom guilty pleasures, and it doesn't have much to do with this post, except that today's verse from Colossians 3:14 is a reminder from Paul [...]

Through You They May Know Him

I didn’t know if I could do it. Yet again. Have another conversation with another grieving relative. The fourth in less than two weeks. Countless in the last couple years. The number of people who had lost loved ones due to various reasons over this pandemic is astounding. The number of times I have processed [...]

Just buy the coffee

There are days I wonder if anyone cares to notice. Cares to notice that there is a world past the one they live in. Cares that the person in front of them with the plastered on smile. With that “fake face” on, as I call it, is really just dying to go home and pretend [...]

WWJD: Still casting stones?

Love doesn’t keep score of the sins of others. 1 Corinthians 13:5, MSG My husband and I have had to do some crawling back. Crawling back to the beginning of what we had at year one of a 15 year marriage. In doing so we read, and we began reading a devotion weekly that tackled [...]

Encouragement is your business

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. Ephesians 4:29 When you think of unwholesome talk, what do you think of? Some think of cursing. You know-swear words. Let's be real-I am fond at times of [...]

WWJD: Be a joy, not a jerk

Love is not rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable. 1 Corinthians 13:5, NLT This post is a two-fer because these two principles work hand in hand. Words and the actions that come with them have power. In fact, Scripture discusses the power of words in many places. One such [...]

WWJD: Envy

Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 1 Corinthians 13:5, NIV "Must be nice." I was taken aback. This was my favorite show. Grey's. One of my favorite characters. Bailey. Who always supported other women. Now, spewing these words about a woman who decided she wanted to follow her dreams and [...]

WWJD: Kindness

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you!    Tie them around your neck as a reminder.    Write them deep within your heart. Proverbs 3:3, NLT Kindness. What do we often think of when we think of random acts of kindness? Pretty words? Random gifts? The second portion of 1 Corinthians 13:4 states that LOVE is kind. But think [...]

The truth about love and lists

I am here to be real. To be straight up. To share the messy. The truthful. And if you remember, I had some issues about love and what it meant for me a couple months back. All because I was tasked with making a list. I shared a little about that assignment and how it [...]
