They ‘Like’ me! They really ‘Like’ me!

They Like Me They Really Like Me

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.  Galatians 1:10 (NIV) Last week, I walked into a store, much like Blockbuster (RIP), that is known for consistently posting a greeter at the entrance. This time, the greeter was not there. My response? I stood at the door like an idiot, waiting for my obligatory ‘hi’. I had … Read More...

Tune out and Turn on

Tune Out and Turn On!

Another Thursday night gone, I sighed, as I collapsed into bed. My husband Keith came in, wanting to talk, but I brushed him off to be alone with my melancholy thoughts. Frustrated, Keith huffed out of the room. How insensitive! I thought. Just like last Thursday, and the Thursday before that… And that’s when it hit me. We had this same routine … Read More...

I usually read a couple inspirational quotes every day. I love words and the power of language and the ability they have to speak into my heart often when I need it the most. I could give you a list of leaders, experts and friends whose words impact me on a regular basis. If their quotes were paintings, I would hang them up all over my house. … Read More...

One got out!

One Got Out!

Of all the bad habits I’ve ever acquired, golf is not the worst. But it’s close. I wrote a little golf book and I’ve been surprised at the response. Millions of people golf. And they write me letters about this bad habit. For me, golf is a marvelous and maddening game that combines three favorite pastimes from my childhood: doing poorly at … Read More...

The Real Reason for Joy

The Real Reason for Joy: An Easter Reflection

Do you remember these lyrics? I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart Where? Down in my heart Where? Down in my heart I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart Where? Down in my heart to stay! I sang this tune as a kid in Sunday school. Back then, joy meant a whisker rub from my grandpa, a trip to the candy store, playing … Read More...

Surrounded by Sinners

Surrounded by Sinners

As Easter approaches I'm grateful for something magnificent. It’s interesting that throughout Jesus' life, He was surrounded by extreme sinners. In fact in Matthew 11:19 it says, The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Jesus even chose some disciples who … Read More...
