Month: April 2009 Dr. Obama.

[edited May 9, 09] The University of Notre Dame is set to crown Barack Obama with an honorary degree — in addition to the invitation to deliver the 2009 commencement address.  So, don’t you wonder how this anti pro-life president will handle the commentary generated from accepting the invitation to address the graduating class of Notre Dame?   You continue reading

Month: April 2009 “Anywhere, anytime.”

Someone could be listening in on your cell phone conversations.  Or your personal conversations — even if you’re not using your cell phone.  Anywhere, anytime… someone can be tracking you… receiving text messages you receive on your cell phone. Anywhere, anytime.  It’s amazing where technology has brought us.  Go here for more info; or watch a YouTube video continue reading

Month: April 2009 Random thoughts on intolerance

I’m doing housekeeping today… many things needed sorting and filing, washing and ironing.  Teatime brought to mind some thoughts from the past weekend. It’s getting fiercer and fiercer, the slick and sick double standard of those who scream to be tolerated —  not just tolerated, but venerated — endorsed — lauded.   I’m not a proponent of beauty pageants continue reading

Month: April 2009 The Love Dare Journal — Day 6

Love is not Irritable. This chapter begins with a verse from Proverbs 16.32 And then continues, “Love is hard to offend and quick to forgive.” To be irritable means ‘to be near the point of a knife.’ Not far from being poked.  People who are irritable are locked, loaded, and ready to overreact.” I know I get irritable continue reading

Month: April 2009 Heard at our house today:

Today was an outside most all day long.  The first mowing of the year, the first trimming of the year (besides the pruning of the fruit trees and roses done last month), and first real sunny-warm-play in the water sort of day.    Mama, I’m so glad you had more children.  I’m so happy I can play with continue reading

Month: April 2009 The Love Dare Journal — Day 5

Today’s “Dare” begins:  Love is not rude. Once again, I find it difficult to carry out the dare of the day.  I say this because I genuinely feel as though I am never rude to my husband.   In fact, from the beginning of our marriage, courtesy and manners have been something we’ve continually practiced.  But I am continue reading

Month: April 2009 On Colbert…

This isn’t a blanket endorsement of Stephen Colbert or The Colbert Nation… but I’m just posting this so that you’ll see the lengths to which some people are going to deceive others or to discredit the Bible.  I first saw this at an apologetics conference this weekend during a talk by Dr. Doug Geivett.  He was talking about continue reading

Month: April 2009 Are you a big surprise?

Have you let someone mock you and steal your dream? Our family crowed [sorry, that’s a typo.  Our family didn’t crow around the computer — we crowded; c-r-o-w-d-e-d]around the computer to view a YouTube video that was suggested to us.  So we waited for the video clip to upload…. When she walked on the stage of “Britain’s Got continue reading

Month: April 2009 Because of Jesus

I’m in awe… thankful and amazed at the mercy of God. I could never do anything, be anything, think anything: to earn my way to redemption. But God! Because of the cross…  because of Jesus — Jesus alone I stand redeemed. I stand in awe, I stand redeemed. Consider Jesus… who lived among men, was crucified, suffered, died, continue reading
