Silly Girl, Passover isn’t for Christians…or is it?

So how does a Christian girl walk into a room of 250 strangers, and enjoy a Passover/Seder meal? I’ve always wanted to do Passover. But where’s a christian girl to go? I don’t know any Jewish people well enough to ask to be a guest for this. Or can I just go to a temple…

Should we go to our Gay Child’s Wedding?

If you have a child in the gay lifestyle should we go to their “wedding”? No…seriously do you know? I am asking as I find myself in the same predicament I did years ago. Dealing with should we go to our daughters same-sex wedding? When our daughter came out to us in 2005 I found…

A Safe Place to Land

If you’re coming over from Arabahs site, you may be coming over because you too have a child or loved one in the gay lifestyle. Or that you would like to learn more. Or that you’re just curious. Either way…welcome. My hope that this is a soft place to land for those that are hurting….

The tides are changing

Change. It’s the only thing that is constant. When God closes a door He always opens a window. The definition of insanity is to keep doing something over and over again expecting different results. I hate platitudes. Yet these all apply. I have told my friends in the crafts shows I do, that when God…

I don’t believe in God because my mother told me too!

Growing up I couldn’t help notice my mother was a Christian. She would play hymns on her accordion and the piano. She listened to my prayers ever night, and taught me the Lord’s Prayer by heart. And I still have my children’s bible she gave me. I can still remember hearing the clicking of her high…

Seek First the Kingdom…but what does that look like?

Does it look like what we think of as the steortypical Christian woman who wakes up early, pours herself a cup of coffee (for me herbal tea) and quietly reads Gods word, worships and prays with hope and faith and waits upon the Lord for an answer, before anyone wakes up. Yes…yes it does. And…

Living between Hope and getting my hopes up…too high.

Is it just me…or do any of you find yourself figuring out how God is going to fix your life? I am in an inbetween time of life. And let’s face it…all of us are. As we’re all trying to figure out how to cope with life’s struggles while having hope and faith that God…

Ending at the Beginning

I was a brand new bride and people would ask me what my husband did. I would answer “he substitute teaches and coaches soccer”. Now in 2016, 37 years of marriage I can say “he substitute teaches and coaches soccer”. How do we come full circle? Simple…because God wastes nothing. My husband had a phenomenal…

Pulling the antique stores into the 21st century

Back in the day Antique Dealers were a different breed. They did their homework by reading books full of pictures of depression glassware with set prices. Deals were rarely given, and rarely offered. One would go into a shop and expect to see things put on dark wood shelves. And if one complained that things…

God’s Eye View

I like plans. So I like road maps, graphs and charts. So when there are trials I want a step by step plan to follow to heal. But when I can’t find one I figure I have three choices. Give up. Continue on my own way. Or trust God and step back. It’s never viable…

Chicken Soup really is Jewish Penicillin  

I have known for awhile. I have been putting it off sharing…only to finally submit. You see I have been ill. I have been ill with fatigue and thyroid issues for over 16 years. Though basically functional, it has been challenging. I have been to Doctors and every type out there. And yet…still ill. But…
