To Mom and Dad Lucarelli

March 2, 2009

I wish I could have met you. Tina tells me all the stories, I have watched the videos and seen the pictures which give me a glimpse into who you were and what your values were.  All I know is that Tina is the product of your love and her ideals and value system is […]

I AM HALF WAY HOME

February 18, 2009

I heard this statement today on the radio. What a great way to look at life (and what comes after).  Sometimes life seems so hard, so difficult that I just want to “go home” to be with the Lord.  There were times in my life where my heart was so broken that I just did […]

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 […]

SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!

November 29, 2007

I am writing this blog with incredible joy and peace in my heart.  After years of prayer, absolute non-patience, and pain – and only after I gave up – God gave me an incredible gift – my heart’s desire. So today: I want to shout it from the rooftops!! I want to declare it to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
