Some things I’ll just never understand this side of heaven. A friend said to me recently, “I don’t want to go to hell over a mystery.” I know exactly what he was saying even though I believe once saved always saved. If I edited that statement and made it mine it’d go like this: “I […]

On December 11, 2010, my Dad went to be with the Lord. His time of death is estimated at 6:35 AM (CST) on that Saturday morning, the exact moment that my and Daryl’s airplane was lifting off from the Palanga Airport in Lithuania heading back to the States to see him. He was 77 years […]

Serving in Klaipeda, Lithuania, with LCC International University Daryl and I have been in Klaipeda for nine weeks now. (Daryl’s time is a little less because he travels back and forth to the U.S. occasionally, but for the most part, he’s here). Three things we’ve noticed about Lithuania in our short time here: 1. Lithuanians […]

We leave in five weeks. FIVE WEEKS! Penkias savaites! (Uh…that’s Lithuanian for five weeks.) Honestly, I can’t believe it. We’re heading to Klaipeda. Klaipeda of all places. Klaipeda, Lithuania. We leave August 26th. I’m so excited and I can’t wait to get in the classroom and meet my students and get into the culture and […]

Published in prayer, Uncategorized, War

I hate war. I know! I just did a blog on not saying hate, but I do HATE war. (See my post “The War Less Traveled” October 14 and 15, 2008). I mean who doesn’t? Right? Warmongers—I guess they don’t hate war. Afghanistan. When I was there in 2003 I felt that the US had […]

Words, Words, Words!

Words. Can’t live with ‘em; can’t live without ‘em. Okay. I guess that’s not entirely true. We can live with ‘em…some of them. Not all of them. I’m thinking a lot about words right now ‘cause I’m preparing to teach a class on linguistic theory and well, there’s a whole lotta stuff about words in […]

A Shattered Vase and Other Broken Stuff

I hate it when things break! Especially stuff I can’t fix! After my Grandma died my Mom gave me a box of her things. I went through it and found a lovely delicate bud vase—clear crystal with little vine etchings. Really nice and it was special to me. It was important because it came from […]

Anyone else need this today besides me? Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side; Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; Leave to thy God to order and provide; In every change He faithful will remain. Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heav’nly Friend Thro’ thorny ways leads to a […]

A girl never forgets her first love. For me it was a golden Cocker Spaniel by the name of Peanuts. He was lovely with golden curls, glamorous floppy ears and a stump for a tail. I loved him. He was absolutely beautiful and he was my best friend. He was my first love. My parents […]

Moses and the Spiritual Gifts Inventory

Published in faith, obedience, prayer, Uncategorized

Have you ever taken one of those spiritual gifts inventories? You know the ones. You fill out the info and then it tells you what your spiritual gifts are? I think their purpose is to help followers of Christ plug into the local church. Ya think? I was wondering what would have happened if they’d […]
