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 […]

Even an Old Dog Can Still Learn

February 23, 2009

    Last night I learned something.  I learned that I did not know everything.  I know what you are thinking – what an amazing revelation.  But I consider myself an old dog and it is hard for an old dog to learn.  I mean really, what don’t I already know that is important.   […]

The Price of Freedom

February 23, 2009

  There are many things we take for granted.  Unfortunately, many times there things are the most valuable to us.  Like our family, spouse, children, job, friends, salvation, and freedom. Freedom.  We accept it without question.  If it is threatened, we rebel loudly and with force.  But that very freedom we enjoy did not cost […]

Can’t Wait for Spring

February 21, 2009

  I am so tired of the snow, rain, and ice. Coming from California to Kentucky has been a lesson in patience. I want the sun!  If patience is a fruit of the Spirit, then God is certainly working on me with this one.  I miss riding, I miss fishing, I miss sleeveless shirts.  Besides, […]

I am Back!!!

October 1, 2008

Wow, it has been a long time since I wrote.  So much has happened in the past year.  As I last wrote, I met a wonderful woman on Christian Cafe.  After giving up on dating due to some less-than-wonderful experiences, God stepped in and gave me Tina.  And in the same way, He gave me […]

THE LORD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE

October 4, 2007

I love the way the Israelites has different names for God such as: Yahweh Yireh (The Lord will provide) Yahweh Nissi (The Lord is my Banner) Yahweh Shalom (The Lord is Peace) El Roi (God who sees) Yahweh Tsidkenu (The Lord is Our Righteousness) Their names showed the character of God in His actions with […]

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 […]

IN GOD ALONE I TRUST

September 24, 2007

I know my life has not been easy. Heck, I do not wish my life on anyone. The tears I have shed must fill kegs up in heaven – God gave up on bottles with me. The pain I have suffered would kill most men. Throw on the struggles, disappointments and broken hearts and you […]

LET IT GO!

September 22, 2007

A wonderful friend of mine sent this to me this week. It spoke volumes to my life – my past, my hurts, my scars, my tears. I want to share it with you. LET IT GO By T. D. Jakes There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell […]

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 BRIDE OF CHRIST

September 14, 2007

This blog was inspired and is co-written by a good friend of mine whom I simply adore as a person, as a woman, and as a fellow rebel for Jesus. There are two distinct views here – how the bride sees herself (she wrote this) and how her future groom sees her (my input). HOW […]

NOTHING BUT JESUS

July 24, 2007

Jesus said “ I am the way, and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 NASB Isn’t that what we all want? We are searching for the way – the way out, the way in, the way that brings happiness, success, family, peace, freedom from the […]

NOT YET JESUS

July 20, 2007

Maranatha – The Lord Cometh. Every so often I hear Christians pray for Jesus to come back now. This always grieves my spirit. How selfish can one be to ask the Lord to come back this soon with so many who do not know Him? Now I have never been a farmer, but I cannot […]

THE BATTLE IS COMING!!

July 7, 2007

THIS MESSAGE IS TO ALL WHO FOLLOW JESUS. IF YOU ARE NOT A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST, THIS MESSAGE IS NOT MEANT FOR YOU. Lately, I have felt a strong movement of God. A very strong presence and urging. I know others have felt it too in discussions and blogs I have read. Do you […]
