Me vs The Green Eyed Monster

When I say “green eyed monster”, I’m not referring to my husband. Im speaking, of course, about jealousy.  Beth and I are continuing our look at love in 1 Corinthians 13; what it is and what it is not. And – it is not jealous; it does not envy.  I’ve been debating what to write here…

Kindness is the Cure

Kindness is like that perfect black dress; it never goes out of style. It costs nothing to be kind, yet means the world to the recipient.  Beth and I are looking at 1 Corinthians 13:4b love is kind. When was the last time you saw a kind political debate over social media?  These are dark times…

Patience & Progress

Beth and I are looking at the love chapter in 1 Corinthians 13. Today we are looking at patience or as I like to call it – NOBODY’S strong suit!  My first month working in education, I’ve decided teachers and parents of small children are among the most patient of people.  When your love for…

Love Is All You Need

Yay! New series ahead. Beth & I are talking about the traits of love.  God gave Moses 10 Commandments. Guidelines that were simple, yet people messed that up. Then when Jesus showed up, He broke it down further and made it even simpler for us by breaking it down to love (love God & love…

What Do I Know?

Today as Beth and I wrap up our Beatitudes series, I find myself almost at a loss for words. This has been a much bigger challenge to write about than I thought! This last one is by far the hardest.  Matthew 5:10  God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right,  for the Kingdom of…

Whirled Peas

What does peace really mean? What did Jesus say about it? Beth gives great detail and scriptures about peace.  We are nearing the end of our series on the Beatitudes. Only 1 more week left after this! Today, we’re looking at peacemakers.  Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of…

Check Your Heart

One of the reasons I love partnering with Beth in this collaborative effort is because she thinks different than me. Her posts are study driven while mine tend to be anecdotal. We’re looking at Matthew 5:8 this week as we continue our look at the Beatitudes. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will…

McDonald’s, Motherhood & Mischief

My husband has to work late sometimes. NBD. Everyone has been there. (This is the part where I bow in unworthiness to single mamas. I literally don’t know how you do it – you’re incredible.) I’m going to be honest: I’m afraid to take my kids places when I’m alone. Maybe because they’ve run opposite…

Triumph Over Judgement

Beth and I continue our look at the Beatitudes and this week is mercy.  Matthew 5:7  Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. My mind automatically went to this verse: James 2:13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment. I love…

Are YOU Ready?!

I’m convinced there’s 2 things we ALL need to keep updated before we need them: – Passport – Resume This way, you’re ready to GO.  Don’t wait until you NEED a new resume. This way you’ve got it when you do need it! If someone told you about a great opportunity, would you be able…

Who’s Hungry?

I’m what you may call “big boned”. Ok, I’m overweight. And my failures in this area have been well-documented on my blog over the years as I attempt to lose the weight – unsuccessfully. Basically, I had a “cheat day” ten years ago. Now, here I am. Weight Watchers works, but it’s slow. And though…
