Orange & Yellow: Excesses

Do not be excessively righteous [like those given to self-conceit], and do not be overly wise (pretentious)–why should you bring yourself to ruin?  Do not be excessively or willfully wicked and do not be a fool. Why should you die before your time?  Ecclesiastes 7:16-17 [AMP] Once upon a time, in what seems two lifetimes, twenty oddContinue reading “Orange & Yellow: Excesses”

The Day Changed At Midnight (You Don’t Believe?)

(How’d you like the AI art? Yes, an AI program made my featured picture today… lol. This world is wack.) HOUSEKEEPING BLURB: This blog began as a once-a-month-er and has turned into a whenever-I-feel-like-it-er. I do apologize for that… But the truth is, we all get a lot of subbed emails in a day (No,Continue reading “The Day Changed At Midnight (You Don’t Believe?)”

What Did You Think?

Let me blow the dust off of some former things… *cough cough* *blink blink* *achooo* Hey, it’s not easy dusting off ancient history; sometimes it blows back at you, covers your face with shame, makes your throat itch. But, as the old skin cells begin to settle around your feet, the air clears, along withContinue reading “What Did You Think?”

Love: An Exposé

I know why you stay… I didn’t used to understand, but I do now… Do you feel like no one gets it? Do you wish someone would force you out? Some days, maybe it’s a little of both… Well, I suppose there are thousands of nuanced reasons to stay – as there are just asContinue reading “Love: An Exposé”

Joie de Vivre: John!

Who can understand the pitfalls of the dreamers, the visionaries, and the hearers except the dreamers, the visionaries, and the hearers? I’m convinced no one does (except God)… so convinced that I think it will make a fantastic premise for another book. (Yay! I love starting new things… oh dear. Let’s not talk about that.)Continue reading “Joie de Vivre: John!”

Faithful Service

The relationship between Jonathan and David gets a lot of hype in Sunday morning sermons, and for good reason. That is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of spiritual bond. In rereading Daniel 4 recently, however, I found another lovely example of relational beauty. Daniel’s faithful service to God is often recounted, but have you ever noticed howContinue reading “Faithful Service”

Roe: The View From Here

What a week! — A week of divisions, a week of celebrations, a week of cautions, a week of squealing and protesting… I don’t always comment on current events, especially in the heat of the moment; I prefer to let them sit for a minute. Still, I understand some of the implications of Roe VContinue reading “Roe: The View From Here”

But By My Spirit

An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end? Jeremiah 5:30-31 Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone isContinue reading “But By My Spirit”

Vainglorious Imaginations

There are, perhaps, few things more precious than meeting someone who does not take the ‘seat of honor’, who does not clap for him/herself, who even, at times, shrouds his left hand from his right. Have you known such a person? Aren’t they the loveliest? I’ve known a few and know a few now. WhatContinue reading “Vainglorious Imaginations”

Enter/Edu/Info-Tain-Ment

Enter attainment. Educate attainment. Inform attainment. Yeah, I’m messing with you and my husband is probably going to give me a lecture on etymology after reading this… but it is interesting, isn’t it? All of this striving after attainment? Entertainment. Edutainment. Infotainment. Eesh. This is giving me a yawn… So, when we entertain ourselves, weContinue reading “Enter/Edu/Info-Tain-Ment”
