Love…

The greatest of the commandments instruct us to love God and each other. The Bible defines love in many ways; however, love is never defined as is easy. Love never fails. God never fails. Love suffers long and is kind. God suffers long and is kind.     It is difficult to suffer long and be kindContinue reading “Love…”

Still Searching for a Real Love, Baby?

As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy mayContinue reading “Still Searching for a Real Love, Baby?”

In the World, Not Of It

  When listening to my Father’s call the world attempts to use disguise to lead me into my downfall when lies are truth and truth are lies. The Gospels lift me up to soar, and daily mind and heart restore.   The words of Jesus free my thoughts and bring me back to God’s embraceContinue reading “In the World, Not Of It”

…and Justice for All

When you see me, who do you see? A Black face? Someone who evokes rage or fright, Undeserving mercy, grace?   When you see me, who do you see? Blind and white and deaf; loath to step into shoes of your pain, color, grief or plight?   When you see me, when will you seeContinue reading “…and Justice for All”

Pretty Girl!

Last night I lost my pretty girl. One moment she’s clearing her throat. The next, she is gone. She was not a young dog. A cataract was slowly growing in one eye. I suspected her hearing might be waning (though she could hear a bag of chips opened in the kitchen from the second floor!)Continue reading “Pretty Girl!”

Abide in The Light

“Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in theContinue reading “Abide in The Light”

I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

This weekend I was extremely fortunate to attend a reunion with some extraordinary women all of which I met in college. It had been over a decade for many and in some instances more than two since I’d seen most of them.  Yet, our love for each other appears to have actually increased as the years have gone by.  I believe we wereContinue reading “I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends”

Love thy neighbor!

Well, I finally got that snow day I’d been waiting for. I realize a couple of inches of snow is no big deal to the rest of the country, but in the Metro Atlanta area we just don’t do snow. We may see it three to five times in a decade. We can readily standContinue reading “Love thy neighbor!”
