Taming the Tongue

Sometimes I just can’t control my tongue. It was not a good day. For whatever reason, we were just off. I was irritable and impatient. I found myself correcting every little infraction, every childish noise. The more I corrected, the more frustrated I became. And the more my kids acted up. After snapping at one of my children, I… Continue reading Taming the Tongue

When Life Eclipses God

by Meredith Mills @dazzledbytheson We saw it, and it was dazzling. Like millions of other people, we traveled into the totality zone of the Great American Eclipse.

This Changes Everything

“Look! The virgin will conceive and bear a Son, and they will call Him Emmanuel, which means ‘God with us’” (Matt 1:23) NET. God.with.us. Those three words astound me.

Did We Take a Wrong Turn?

Did we take a wrong turn somewhere, God? This path we’re on is bumpier than I expected. I’m not seeing many "green pastures" or much "still water." It’s certainly not glamorous. I was kind of hoping for something more exciting, less mundane. I know You lead down “paths of righteousness,” but isn’t there a less… Continue reading Did We Take a Wrong Turn?

Look-alikes

By Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon “You can’t deny that one’s yours!” That was the comment we heard as my husband carried our littlest into the church where he would be speaking later that morning. It’s true - she definitely bears his image. In fact, I’ve been told she's the female version of him as a child.… Continue reading Look-alikes
