Can Christians Have Tattoos?

February 26, 2009

  I love a good argument. Perhaps that is because I am Italian and we love to animate our talking with our hands.  Or perhaps it is just that I always think I am right.  This topic seems to drive Christians nuts.  Almost every Christian I have discussed this with (with the exception of those […]

MY HEART’S DESIRE

October 3, 2007

Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NASB) God knows me so very well. Before there is a word on my lips, He knows them. He knows my thoughts, my actions and my motives. He loved me at my worst condition and loves me exactly […]

LOVE THAT PURSUES

October 1, 2007

God works with me in strange ways. Maybe that’s why I am so strange. I see times in my life where everything pointed to learning grace. These days are spent learning about love. So here is another post on love….. Love is a verb. It lives, it breathes, it moves. There is no such thing […]

CHECK YES OR NO

September 18, 2007

I love songwriters. And singers who can bring those words to life. George Strait is one of my favorites – talented yet appearing so humble. Sometimes life is a box that you have to enter a check mark in. Certainly, love is like that expressed in this chorus: “Do you love me, do you wanna […]

THE VALLEY OF THE REBELS

September 17, 2007

This blog is dedicated to all those warrior rebels for Jesus who have endured the valleys of their spiritual life so as to better enjoy the mountaintop experience with God. When I review my spiritual life, I see myself in valleys mostly. It is here that God has humbled me, taught me, and nurtured me. […]

GIVE GOD YOUR BEST

July 27, 2007

“But when you present the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you present the lame and sick, is it not evil?” Malachi 1:8 NASB In this book, the priests were giving God the scraps, the rejects and keeping the best, the first fruits, for themselves. Don’t we do that today? We make […]

ADVENTURES WITH JESUS

July 24, 2007

Yeah, what a strange title. But I cannot think of anything more descriptive of the life with Jesus. The Jesus of the Bible is so different than the Jesus being preached today on the pulpits. In fact, some preachers have forgotten who Jesus is. Their words are all about you feeling good about yourself. Huh? […]

WHY DOES LOVE HURT?

July 19, 2007

Love…..it can be an incredible wondrous experience or it can be just another nasty 4-letter word. If you have ever loved deeply, then you may have been hurt deeply. The depths of that pain only equal the heights of the joy of being in love. I pity the person who has no scars, has never […]

THE HEART OF GOD

July 10, 2007

I marvel at the thought that God has a heart. Having experienced the joys and the pains in my own heart, it saddens me to think that God could experience that pain but on a much greater scale. I know I am trying to see the wonders of God through my inadequate, limited human brain. […]

THE EYES OF GOD

July 7, 2007

Ever wonder what God sees? I know I do. I want to see how God sees the things I look at. Some of these things are so beautiful and incredible. Other things are just plain and not very exciting when I see them through my eyes. I mean the Grand Canyon is an awesome creation; […]

LOVE EM ALL – LET GOD SORT EM OUT

July 6, 2007

Last night, I was contacted by a friend who was disturbed that a man (claiming to be a Baptist) had told her that, since she was Catholic, she worships Mary and statues. Additionally he claimed that Jews were not going to heaven. Combine that with a Christian man’s ranting on a website against “men viewing […]

WHY I FOLLOW JESUS

July 4, 2007

30 years ago, I met God. No He didn’t look like Elvis or a hippy or even a clean cut guy in a suit. All I can tell you is that I asked God to touch me and reveal Himself to me, and He honored my request. He Showed me Himself in the person of […]
