Dear Virginia, Time to Say Goodbye

Dear Virginia, Three years ago if someone had told me I would be crying when it was time to move again, I would have given them the infamous “whatever” look. I simply would not have believed it. Don’t get me wrong Virginia, you are a good state, not as awesome as Texas..but a good state Want More?

~Project Psalm 49~I Want to Be Rich~

Psalm 49:17 Do not fear when a man becomes rich, when the wealth of his house grows great. At his death he will not take along anything, his glory will not go down after him. We experience this world through our senses.  We touch, taste, feel, smell and see all that is around us.  It is Want More?

~Project Psalm~48~Lead Me to Zion

Ps 48:9 What we had heard we have now seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, In the city of our God, which God establishes forever.

~Project Psalm 47~ Let’s Celebrate, We’re Going to Have A Good Time..

Psalm 47:7-8 Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise For God is king over all the earth; sing hymns of praise.

~Psalm 46~Protect Me God~

PS46:7-8 Though nations rage and kingdoms totter, he utters his voice and the earth melts.

~Psalm 45~Will You Marry Me~

My wedding anniversary is tomorrow.  Seems fitting that this particular Psalm written to commemorate the marriage between King David and a Phoenician Princess is next up for Project Psalm.   Psalm 45 11-12 Listen, my daughter, and understand; pay me careful heed. Forget your people and your father’s house, that the king might desire your Want More?

Sacrifice Defined

In the garden of Gethsemane on a starry night, our lord kneels in prayer contemplating his plight. Dripping tears of sweat and blood, He knew they would come. He offers up prayers. The Father’s will be done. With a kiss, a small kiss His love is betrayed. Shackled and whipped the King becomes a slave. […] Want More?

Beautiful Tree, How the Evergreen Came To Be

Once upon a time when the world was new, God created the first man and the first woman out of love.  The place in which they dwelled was a garden of paradise.  Everything was perfect. In this haven the first man and the first woman did not know pain, suffering, or death.  In the garden they Want More?

Down With The Quiet Room

  I once sat in a crying room with my infant son, a mid sized room enclosed in glass with several rows of pews. Children ran about the room while abandoned coloring books strewn about were trampled.  My daughter was six at the time and she sort of stared in disbelief and fidgeted a little Want More?

Eye-glass Prescription, Seeing the World a Little Clearer

For my birthday I decided to give the gift of humility to myself.  I feel it is important to be self aware and work on yourself, particularly if you are as opinionated as moi’. First step, quite frankly possibly the only one,  is to try and be a better listener and not talk about myself so much. Want More?
