Old Testament: Did it happen?

“The Old Testament is mostly symbolism….it didn’t (couldn’t) actually happen”  

Have you ever heard that statement before?  I have heard it several times but hadn’t given it much thought. 

He is Risen

From the very beginning, God knew that we would fall and He had a plan:

Salvation inside the Big Fish

Like Jonah, I was swirled and swept under water by the waves.  I was up, down, and struggling to breathe; getting tired really fast. 

For Better or for Worse: During the Worse.

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.

I think I am a Tailbone

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.

Mexican Chocolate Atole (Hot Chocolate)

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.  

Season of Waiting

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.

Spirit of Christmas

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:
