Fandangled Fear

Chipper afraid

Scared to death and shaking uncontrollably, our little dog hurried to my chair. He is terrified of thunder and lightning, but the day is sunny and bright. I have no idea what he heard. I hold him close and speak soothing words, and still he shakes. Poor little guy doesn’t … Continue reading →

The Secret to Trust

Trust in The Lord

Ever wrestled with trusting God? I’ll be honest, I have! So I asked God, “What is Trust? How can I trust?” My first stop was the 1828 Dictionary to understand better the definition of the word “Trust” (The 1828 dictionary doesn’t just give the definitions but also Bible verses.) Here’s … Continue reading →

Why didn’t you tell me?

Why didnt you tell me

I had a disturbing image as I was thinking about the lost. What if… as we walked into Heaven those we didn’t tell about Christ were lined up to ask…. Why didn’t you tell me?

Stepping out in faith


I’ve created a few videos over the years for my websites, and most were very basic. When the few I made didn’t seem to go very far, I backed away. I really wanted to produce top-notch videos to inspire and encourage, and ideas and thoughts continued, but I didn’t think … Continue reading →

To Be or Not To Be


I’m stymied. Stuck. My mind is scrambling through thoughts and yet way too quiet. I have blogs and emails to write, online friends to answer. I have proposals to finish. Fiction manuscripts are in progress, and instead all my characters are sitting silently in a proverbial waiting room. And my stagnant mind is whirling in place. Ack! I want to DO! Then I wonder, am I concentrating so hard on doing, that I’m missing being? Does God sometimes just want me TO BE–be in His presence, be His child, be with Him?

Burnt toast

It’s far too easy to point fingers at someone else’s sins. We are so quick to throw stones at sins we don’t think we commit. Easy to quote, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” But what wonderful hope and encouragement are found in the next verse. “And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:11
