How to Consume Life-Giving Lamb


I ate the lamb shank—the lamb I ordered—Sunday night. For those of you who are vegetarians, I’ll try to be sensitive.  Truth is, I found that shank extremely tender and tasty. Still, I wonder if I ought to partake of an animal that was “sacrificed” for my sake. Why can’t I even eat a tasty lamb dinner without thinking of the spiritual connections? Maybe the answer has something to do with the fantastic, nine-month study

Sicker Than A Dog


I was sicker than a dog last week.  That is, until my dog got sick the day after. I think I poisoned myself with some bad beef.  Not pretty.  Next morning, I read the directions on the package . . . Eat within 5 days after opening. I did the math, in the aftermath of my porcelain thrown-hugging purging.  If my calculations were correct, I ate that beef on Day 21 instead of on Day

Dog Gone [When You’re Lost and Need to Know You’re Sought After Still]


She flew out the door with her friend at dusk on Friday night before Christmas. They had places to go, things to do. Two hours later, I began to worry.  Darkness had enveloped the farm but they hadn’t come home.  No sign of them.  I whistled and called.  Nothing.  A silent night.  I could feel my heart thumping hard in my chest. Where ARE they?  Are they alright?  Did they run into a coyote—or a

If You Need Some Love To Set You Free


I hired a prisoner yesterday. Well, actually, a former prisoner. Just out of the slammer. Spent two years behind bars and that wasn’t his first stint—in prison, that is. $150 to his name. Rent due September 1. No job yet but he’s hunting hard. Anyone want to hire a prisoner set free? Yeah, he’s made bad choices. Haven’t we all? Yeah, he’s suffering the consequences. Aren’t we all? Whether we have $150 in our pockets

Character Matters


He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8   That storm rolled in like a freight train yesterday. Saw it coming from the west all dark and ominous. Ran to the barn and closed those sliding doors. Got back inside just in time. BOOM! Lightening and thunder came with the

True Independence

True Independence


  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17   Today is Independence Day, 2016. For starters, I reread the Declaration of Independence (click to read) and familiarized myself with the reasons we separated ourself from England in 1776.  One word . . . Tyranny. Our forefathers found life under tyrannical rule absolutely unacceptable.  Politically, I wonder how many of us have forgotten?  How

What are We Waiting For?


Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 A continuation from Monday’s post . . . Back to Benghazi, which is just a reflection of reality, now . . . Hate spreading hate.  Violence spreading violence. I’m not trying to incite hatred or violence by bringing up this subject. But may I kindly ask what’s stirring in your own heart

Massacres and Scepters


Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:  Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!  Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the

Sudden Storm


Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.  He stilled the storm to a whisper. Psalm 107:28-29   The weather was near perfect all day Sunday.  Sunny blue skies dappled with puffy white clouds.  Early evening, we were enjoying an al fresco dinner on our Tuscan terrace covered with grapevines just leafing out. Anna, our 24 year-old and oldest, shared about a llama she saw

You’ve Got Mail (The Truth About You in Love Letters)


Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. Deuteronomy 8:3 Crab food.  That’s what my husband calls it.  He says that if I don’t have food when I’m hungry I get really crabby.  He’s right.  We all need food, water and rest on a regular basis to function optimally.   Water and rest?  I’ve got that pretty well mastered.  It’s food that’s the problem.

Terrier Terror and What We Have In Common With Dogs


Instinct. That’s what it is—the reason why our little terrier pup scared me by running off into the wild blue yonder after that rabbit. Downright ignored the red bell.  And the shaking salami container. Why? Because Baker just had to. Because that’s what dogs do. They follow their nose. Instinct. That’s what drives us all, yes? I suppose running after his big sister helped Baker feel supported in his boundary violation, being that Rose, a

A Stunning Love


“I will come to you and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place.  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me
