Fighting a Great Battle

This post was written in March, 2014. I’m on a bit of a kick about bad stuff lately, since that seems to be what I wake up to each morning. It’s interesting how the stuff you’re going through changes the lens through which you see the world. One of the good things about my dad’s […]

What the Holy Spirit Does

This is the difference between six-years-ago me, and today me. Tonight was my son’s 12th birthday party. I assumed five nearly-teenaged boys would eat a lot of pizza, so I ordered a lot of pizza, but they didn’t. I can’t stand the way leftover pizza makes my fridge smell so I asked my husband to […]

Praying for Paris

We should continue to pray for Paris, not because we want Parisians to have ‘more religion’, but because humanity is at its best when people come together. Let me give an example. Suppose you believe in a Great Green Dragon in the sky who is able to bring peace and joy to the world, if […]

Cell Phone Snark and Hooey

Ah, Facebook, bringer of all things controversial. It’s where I stumbled across this article, which, frankly, seemed so silly that I would normally have ignore it, except that apparently the APA isn’t ignoring it. And it was on You know Time Magazine, that bastion of factual information and intelligent writing… or maybe I’m dating myself. […]
