2 KINGS: The God of Angel Armies

When I first read this verse, the thought that came to mind was, “I don’t really have any enemies…” I know they are real–those people that hate you just because you call yourself a Christian.  There are those who absolutely despise those of us who believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation, but I personally…

Transitional Traditions

tra·di·tion the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs,  information, etc., from generation to generation, especially by word of mouth or by practice. Traditions are neither good or bad, per se… Each person chooses what they want to observe in their traditions.  We have old traditions and can begin new ones. Many families have what they would call their “traditional” Thanksgiving meal, and we are no exception.

Talk about “Coincidence”: Seriously?

I’m struggling. Like many of you, I grieve for the families in Oklahoma and all those connected to them. Life is a woven tapestry of joy and pain and this week has taken me the full gamut of emotions. I am not even remotely convinced that these life events, or any random activity that we are involved…

The Value of the Unlikely

After witnessing the incredible life and death of my sweet father-in-law, I was again reminded that it’s often the humble and unlikely person…

Life’s a Puzzle…

If you have read my previous post, “May the Words of My Mouth”, then you know we have spent the last 8 weeks in and out of the hospital with my wonderful father-in-law, who has end stage renal failure. This week he personally made the decision to stop the painful treatment that was keeping him…

Young Mom–“Some Days are Just Like That…”

“Some days are just like that… even in Australia!” Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, written by Judith Viorst is still an often-quoted book in the Munton family.  Our kids have loved the book and now that they are grown and three of them married, it’s a book that I still keep…
