Beauty is in the Eye of the Creator

Pursuing beauty in our nation has become an expensive and somewhat obsessive pastime! Last year Americans (both men and women) spent $10 billion on cosmetics and beauty aids. (Compare that to $956 million back in 1996—a bit of an increase). Also in 2008, 10 million US citizens had elective cosmetic surgery. Of that number, 1 […]

When Empty Is Good

Easter, in my opinion, is the most important holiday of the year. The most important holiday ever! This is the time that we acknowledge the life-giving death and resurrection of Jesus. Christmas is great. I love Thanksgiving. But Easter is the big one. Easter is the essential holiday! There are two specific events in the […]

The Trans-Siberian Railroad runs east and west/west and east across Russia. It’s the longest railroad in the world. It starts in Beijing or in Moscow—depending on which way you’re heading. It’s been running full steam (sorry) since 1916. Depending on who you talk to it takes anywhere from eight to twelve days to go from […]

Too Much Time on My Hands

I have a terrible habit of arriving early. I guess it comes from overcompensating for the many years I was habitually late to everything. Once I got my life right with God, I decided being on time was evidence that I had truly changed. Well, then that “change” turned into obsessiveness. It drives my husband […]

You Can’t Judge a Priest by His Cover

You can’t blame me! You see I was raised in a very fundamentalist home. We didn’t have priests. So when Little Olga (see Is There Life in Outer Space? February 11th) and Svetlana asked to be baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church I struggled. When they asked me to be their godmother and stand with […]

So will you join me on March 31st to fast and pray for the Millennial generation? They have so much to offer–so much potential. They are creative, they are passionate, they are looking for something to believe in. A recent poll of 18 to 24 year olds here in the US showed that this age […]

Millennials Part 2

Jeremiah 31:15, “The Lord says: ‘A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children; she refuses to be comforted for her children, because they are no more.’” So what do we do? What am I called to do, through Scripture, for this generation? Perhaps you are a Millennial […]

Millennials Part 1

Published in Uncategorized

This is my 30th posting. I want to do a three part series on Millennials because they are heavy on my heart these days and because I think it is important for us to focus our prayers, attention, and resources on this most valuable and endangered generation. But before I get started I want to […]

Folks, I’m still up against the deadline of March 1 for “the book.” My biggest (and best) critic Big D has convinced me to go back and rewrite chapter eight. So, the heat is on! (Well, literally too because it is 17 degrees out this morning). My blog stats say that very few have read […]
