Thoughts of a Young Christian

Dear Friend, You'd be surprised at the things that go on inside my mind. I often tell my friends I never stop thinking (an obvious lie of course), but the truth is sometimes I wish I thought things through more and at others I wish I could stop thinking. I told an acquaintance the other…

To Know Right

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.(James 4:17 KJV) Have you ever heard the correct version of a story but just simply didn't feel like believing it? Or maybe you believed but just preferred the version you knew? If you're anything like me, you probably…

The Forgotten Coin

Have you ever put money away and forgot about it? I bet that when you came across it you paused to try and remember how and when you placed it there, or if you even did. It's happened to me a few dozen times. It always shows up just when you need it though, doesn't…

The Frosted Glass

A Hypocrite’s Prayer Pt2

You may be wondering what inspires one to come up with something like this. I'll answer you truthfully...Guilt. I had thought of the title long before I wrote this poem. I wrote it a million ways in a head before I sat after midnight one night with a flash light and wrote it all down.…

A Hypocrite’s Prayer

So this week I'm doing things a little different. Here's a poem I wrote last year. Let's start a discussion. Read it and tell me what you think. What's happening here? What lessons can we take from this? Comment here or on Facebook. I'll read them all then write my real piece for this week.…

Frogs in Heaven

And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.Acts 11: 15(KJV) Green, slimy, gross, with tiny little beady eyes that look as if they’re starring right at you… Ewwwwwww. Frogs. YUCK! Since I was a little girl, I’ve had an illogical fear of frogs.  I’d…
