Safe in the Arms of Christ

The issue of eternal security is one in which professing Christians hold a wide variety of viewpoints. Some say that salvation is something we can get and then give away by wrong behavior and then get yet again if we turn back to Christ. Another viewpoint suggests that we cannot ever know for sure if we are saved or not because this is a mystery of the Scripture that cannot be solved. Others…

Saint Paddy's Day

Erin go bragh! And a good St. Patrick's Day to you. Today people all around the world will be celebrating a holiday which means absolutely nothing to them other than it's a holiday on which they wear green and pinch those who don't. Please don't be so quick to pinch this year. There are some things you might wish to know before you start leaving small bruises on each others skin.

Sanctify vs Justify

God justifies a person on their faith alone. We see this all through the Old Testament as evidenced in . We know this because believing God was a prerequisite for the Children of Israel to enter the Promised Land. (Let us not mistake why Moses did not enter. The only reason Moses did not enter was because of his disobedience and his ruining the Spiritual example God had determined by Moses…

Sand Goggles

Being alone in a foreign country for a period of time can make one quite raw. Time and new experiences can reveal many things, things forgotten or otherwise avoidable. I have recently become aware of pains that are lodged deep in my heart that I only seem to become aware of when new pains hit in the same place. When I was younger, a friend's parent, in the heat of anger and argument, once told me,…

Sans Model

I love catalog and on-line shopping! I live an hour from the nearest mall and have young children, so it's often the only way I can get anything new in my wardrobe for months at a time. (Have you even been clothes shopping, for yourself, with the kids along?)

My favorite catalogs are those that show only the clothing, no models. For me, it's easier to picture what I would look like in that…

Santa's Lap

When was the last time you sat on Santa's lap?

Do you remember the anticipation of trying to make the perfect Christmas list? The squirming as you waited in a long line? The candy cane you were handed after reciting your wish list for Santa?

Traditionally our society uses Santa as an incentive and even a threat to get children to behave this time of year. 'You'd better watch out!' 'Santa…

Satan's lies...

There I was, ten years old, standing in the movie theater and just crying my eyes out. Big, sloppy tears soaking the front of my shirt, making it stick to my chest… not a tissue to be found, either.

"Get your coat on, Gina," Mom said as the credits to "Little Women" were rolling on the huge screen in front of us: The old black and white one starring June Alison as Jo,…

Saved by Animals

Animals have played a rather bizarre part in many chapters of both history and fiction. Rodents have been a fixation for some famous people. President Andrew Johnson kept pet mice while he was in the White House. There was no word on whether or not they performed any information gathering functions. Rats were important to the famed Indian Yogi K. N. Udupa. He actually figured out a way to train…

Say Amen...

Sometimes a person just has to say 'Enough.' I did that yesterday, or was it the day before? I've slept since then and there is a lot on my plate that shouldn't or can't touch each other, sort of like how Monk eats his food. Normally, I love to just stir my food up and mix it all together, but these things don't have a lot to do with each other so they must be kept separate. Can I get a witness?

Say Anything

Sometimes, I don't think before I speak. I tend to speak my mind, literally- a thought pops into my mind and then comes out of my mouth. Sometimes this is good. It means I say what most people in a given situation where thinking anyway but were afraid to say. Sometimes I state the obvious, and as a result I am often described as a "truth teller" or as someone who "calls it like it is." But what…
