Let Them Live

According to Worldometer, four out of ten pregnant women in the US choose to abort their child. This means forty percent of unborn babies in our nation are slaughtered before they have a chance to even take a breath. Four out of ten children will never celebrate their first birthday. They will never be held…

Suffering

Suffering. If we were to list all that is wrong in the world; all the hurts, injustices, unkindness, and even evils perpetrated on a daily basis, we’d never stop writing. People suffer every day. Some on a regular basis; some mercifully only now and then. But we all suffer at one time or another. It’s…

He Is Risen Indeed

When I have doubts about God (as we all do from time to time), all I have to do is look at my body and I know that not only does he exist, but that he is also extremely awesome. Ok, ok, I know this sounds like a joke (or else you may think I’m…

No Power of Hell: An Easter Reflection

Satan thinks he has won. Everything is aligning. His murderous plan for God’s beloved is coming together perfectly. The key players are in place, having been deceived into thinking they will benefit from their corroboration. These are the final days. And the hearts of men are wicked and depraved enough to mock, malign, and spit…

Word.

As a writer, I love words. As a Christian living in a post-truth era, I am way over the word games this reality-optional society wants us all to play. People seem to have accepted the ridiculous notion that if you say something, the mere act of you saying it automatically makes it true. Has this…

I’m Sorry, Ms. Jackson, I Am For Real.

This past week many of our jaws hit the floor when Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Jackson iterated that she could not, in response to Senator Marsha Blackburn’s question, define what a “woman” is, because she’s not a biologist. Umm… We all know she was just trying to skirt the question (pun intended). Ketanji Jackson knows…

Growing

I’ve got lots of little seedlings sprouting in peat pots on my kitchen counter right now. It’s not time to put them in the ground just yet; we’ve got almost another month until the last danger of frost. But I’m hopeful I’ll have good, strong, seedlings to go in the soil by the end of…

(Dis)Unity

Do you ever look at the disunity in the church and wonder what the heck is going on? Why do some Christians espouse only grace and mercy without a whisper of repentance, while others yell about the judgment of God; failing to soften the blow with the equal force of God’s unfailing love and forgiveness?…

Yes, We Can

There is very little we can actually control. I think we all feel the truth of that these days; as we watch yet another catastrophe unfold; as we hear of loved ones gone far too soon; as those leading our nation seem to be, at best, asleep at the wheel. And people are so stinking…

Everything’s On Fire

How’s everyone’s Tuesday going? Me? I’m just gearing up to play the “This is not a joke” drinking game with El Beardo as we tune into the Oration de la Somnambulist later this evening. Calm down. It will be mostly ginger beer. Predictions: We will hear how well the va{{ines are working as we come…
