Pondering the things of God. A short devotional: Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
From the very beginning, God knew that we would fall and He had a plan:
Like Jonah, I was swirled and swept under water by the waves. I was up, down, and struggling to breathe; getting tired really fast.
There was yelling, there was cursing, and kitchen cupboard doors being slammed—the argument? Something rather minor and nonsensical. It happened really fast; from 0 to 100 in about 2 minutes.
Maybe I am the Coccyx (tailbone), or the Plica semilunaris (Third Eyelid) or, a cuboid (bone in the foot). I think some of you are a cuticle, maybe a kidney, how about an eye?
Okay, before you guys think I have gone bonkers, let me explain.
Time to take down all of the Christmas decorations, and my very dry Christmas tree (that is shedding more than my cat). Honestly, this is my least favorite time of the year; right after Christmas, it tends to get really cold and snowy. However, one of my favorite things to make during this time is Chocolate Atole or Mexican Hot Chocolate.
We want our money and want it now, we want our food freaky fast, we want to do it with just one click. In my experience, speed comes at a cost– sometimes it is extra unhealthy carbs, high interest rates, or not reading the fine print.
Last week, I talked about Holiday Stress. It is so easy to become stressed that we forget the Spirit of Christmas. However, instead of writing about it, I wanted to show you with some videos that have been inspiring to me. Please Enjoy:
It is that time of the year again. I have a Christmas Party or Dinner on almost every weekend. Do we go to my husband’s family Christmas party first? And then my parents? Which church do we go to celebrate Christmas? I have to buy presents…..
Where does it come from? What is it originally for? Why is Halloween celebrated so differently across cultures? and Why are Christians all over the board when it comes to celebrating it?
I am not here to pick a side and answer the question “Should Christians celebrate Halloween?” Rather look at its history, its current application, and why it is so hard to answer the should or shouldn’t question.
