By the Salt on My Lashes

August 23, 2018 | Comments Off on By the Salt on My Lashes

I was nearly twelve years old when I felt the current pull, dragging me off my feet and deeper into the ocean. For one breath of a moment, I felt the world sucking me into its center when my dad grabbed my arm and yanked me toward him. It was simple. A moment without comment…

A Mind Renewed: Fighting the Lies with Truth

August 19, 2018 | Comments Off on A Mind Renewed: Fighting the Lies with Truth

In February of this year, a small group of ladies from our church packed suitcases with lightweight clothes and cans of dry shampoo and headed for Cape Town, South Africa. A day and a half later, we bumped our wheeled suitcases down the ramp in a foreign but familiar city. The air was hot and…

Restored Relationships

August 12, 2018 | Comments Off on Restored Relationships

Hospitality is really all about other people.  It’s not primarily about the food we serve when guests come to our home.  It is more about our heart for others and the way we allow others to be lavished with grace and accepted and known.  It is about helping them feel refreshed after having been with…

Hospitality of a King

August 5, 2018 | Comments Off on Hospitality of a King

Hospitality didn’t begin with us.  It didn’t begin with Southern Living, or really anything “southern.” It didn’t begin with a table.  It didn’t begin with sweet tea. It began with God.  Everything good originated with God.   Hospitality began with God in the garden.  He created man, offered them the most lavish food and accommodations.  He…

One of the ways we affect our marriage more than any…

Sharp As a Knife

July 23, 2018 | Comments Off on Sharp As a Knife

We were right in the middle of a debate. My older brother was angry and I was furious. If there was one thing I was known for growing up in my house, it was being “hot-tempered”. My dad once explained it as being “passionate”, but let that passion off a leash and it turns into…

In 2 Corinthians 3:2-3, Paul describes the lives of believers in the churches where he had preached Christ and taught the Word as living letters…”a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” In last…

The Meditation of My Heart

July 8, 2018 | Comments Off on The Meditation of My Heart

Have you ever had a deep tissue massage? They say the effects have an almost cathartic effect. Several years ago, I injured my back.  My husband was applying a muscle rub to the affected area and he began to press deeply into the tissue. It was painful and I found myself in tears. But afterward I…

What Comes First

July 1, 2018 | Comments Off on What Comes First

Recently Viv (20-month old) took a 7-minute video of her feet, a book, and the carpet…and audio of me teaching Ev (4-year-old) to read. At first, as I listened, I congratulated myself on how patient I was and how well I praised and celebrated her. But as the lesson progressed, I heard my impatience, anger,…

Words that Hurt or Heal

June 24, 2018 | Comments Off on Words that Hurt or Heal

“Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” That’s Psalm 141:3, and I’ve been praying it a lot lately, as I’ve been struggling with letting my emotions control my tongue rather than the Spirit of God. Do you ever struggle with saying something you shouldn’t to someone out…
