Growing in Faith

I want to be a crab for Jesus

Joe came into my church office in south Louisiana many years ago just to say hello. Before he left, he handed me the plastic, souvenir key chain that was about the size of a coffee can lid. It looked like the type of large key ring that you would get when you wanted to use the restroom at a public service station and they wanted to make sure…

Do you have Faith, or the opposite of it?

I’ve always felt like I’ve had a good amount of faith.  But whenever anyone would share the incredible miracles of what God did for them, I’d think “well, that’s good for them, but that won’t ever happen to me!”   I was especially skeptical of those stories where people said they…

Renew and repurpose for 2014

Resolutions are running through my head, how about you? You can’t avoid it you know. Some people decree that they are not going to vocalize any New Year’s resolutions – thus decreeing a resolution for no more resolutions. Diet? Sure. Work out more? Yep. Same ol’, same ol’! But what about my insides? Should I consider how…

Today is the new start you prayed for

I must confess that I don’t make new year’s resolutions anymore. I refuse to make a half-hearted list of self-proclaimed promises to myself, and then get swept away by life’s currents of business and busyness. I only set myself up for disappointment and failures. If only we didn’t get distracted with…

A resolution worth keeping

I am convinced that gifts that remind us of the giver are the greatest gifts of all. Take this coffee cup for instance. This gift was given to me for Christmas. It has pictures of my four wonderful grandchildren on it. I am convinced that it will make me smile every time I use it. To quote an old cliche, “It’s the gift that keeps…

Don’t judge a gift by its….

Walking through Walmart recently, I had to laugh at those funny gift boxes that look like containers for a different and totally fake product:  Things like the “iArm” mount for your tablet, so you can mount your iPad to your arm (or your car’s steering wheel); or the “Family-size Snuggy” so a whole…

The spirit of Christmas is who you were created to be

So often around this time of year we hear about the “spirit of Christmas”, which is a reference to how people seem to care more for one another. We are a little nicer to strangers, a little more generous to those in need and our moods are often more optimistic and hopeful. But what if I told you that’s how God created you to be…EVERYDAY.…

Advent-ures in waiting

The other day my first born found out the gender of her soon-to-be second born child. Ahhhh…there was a sigh of relief once we all felt the confirmation that baby number two was fine, healthy and of course what gender it was. It was hard to wait. In my days of my having two babies we didn’t know what we were giving birth to.…

Saving grace

Does anybody say grace before a meal anymore? Growing up, this was a ritual that occurred at our dinner table. Every. Single. Night. I’m sure the intentions for starting this tradition were admirable, but by the time I was a teenager, singing grace at dinner {yes, there was a tune to ours} was a rote exercise. I took about a…

Candy Land wisdom

As my daughter unfolded the new Candy Land game from the box, the anticipation was building in her young little helper. Avery waited…but really he just wanted to get his hands on the spinner. I could see it in his eyes. Actually, his little 3-year-old anxiety was wanting to touch the spinner, the game pieces, and the board. All…
