Yesterday a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. My heart sank and then I remembered that even in the pain, cancer cannot steal joy. As we approach Easter, I’m reminded that cancer cannot destroy the hope we have in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I also remembered this “Survivor’s Speech” that […]

In the decade-plus years since 9.11, I had never heard this story. After the terrorists attack of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011, Manhattan shut down – all subways, tunnels, bridges, and trains were closed.  People ran to the water’s edge.  Realizing there was no way off the island, some even jumped in […]

Mourning Doves and Perseverance

When things go wrong…

PROBLEM #1  Really weird, crooked globe on pendant In my dream kitchen (picture from a magazine), I loved the schoolhouse pendants over the island. Small and quaint. So when I found them, I thought “great – just what we need!” We made a lot of internet purchases for the house and this is the only […]

When life is hard…very hard.

We are praying for our Chinese friends who are going through a terrible time right now with their two children.  Their 2-year-old son has a brain tumor that the doctor without a biopsy has indicated that it could be malignant.  Their second son was born two days ago and he is one month premature.  He […]

Good Friday

Today our thoughts turn to a pivotal day in the history of mankind. Good Friday is the day when Jesus died on the cross for our sins. The cross was not beautiful or blue. It is what Jesus did that makes it beautiful. John in the Gospel of John describes the horrific experience in only […]
