"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want."
Okay, I'd like to start out by saying one thing: I LOVE SALSA! It has been a dream of mine to learn partner dancing, and after becoming a faithful watcher of Dancing With the Stars, I decided to take a leap of faith and sign up salsa lessons. I just couldn't live vicariously through the series any more, I had to get on my feet and channel my inner dancer! Of course, this meant automatic recruitment of my dutiful husband. ...Read Full Post »

The Line Leader: Men, Women, Christ!
"But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." I Corinthians 11:3
It is so unfortunate in these days that we have such a lack of respect for authority. More often than not, it is because we want all the authority. God told us a long time ago what would happen to authority after the fall of man. Then Jesus ...Read Full Post »

2012-Fulfilling the Law of Christ
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
This weekend was my husband's birthday. To celebrate, we went to see the movie 2012. Nothing like an action-packed-end-of-the-world saga to get his blood pumping. The movie was awesome. However, aside from all the action was the ultimate humanitarian thrust that comes through at the end of all thrillers as this one. In the end, God ga...Read Full Post »

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive trespasses.”
There is a song both made by Beyoncé Knowles and Jasmine Sullivan called “Resentment”. Beyoncé performs it in these words:
Just can't seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don't know how you gave another who didn't mean a thing...Read Full Post »

A faithful witness does not lie,
But a false witness will utter lies.
What happened to Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. happened to my husband. Several months back, John was doing some work around the house and ended up locking himself out. He then proceeded to use other means to enter. As a result, a neighbor called the police. Once they arrived they handcuffed John and held him face down on our concrete driveway. He was explaining to the officers...Read Full Post »

Self Control is Just Hard Work… Sorry... but there is hope!
Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
What kind of seed produces self control? Getting fruit takes a long process. I mean, I’m no farmer. Not one green thumb. But even I know you have to plant a certain kind of...Read Full Post »

"Every wise woman buildeth her house; but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands."Often times we feel that the outside forces are tearing down our households. The teachers are not teaching our children well enough. The ministry is not serving the family well enough. That woman is determined to ruin your relationship. Everyone is out to get your house and bring it down. The television, music, society, the government. Yes, all may play a part in attempting to dismantle your life, but what ...Read Full Post »

James 1:1-8 NKJV
1 James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings. 2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 ...Read Full Post »
