I want this blog to be meaningful. I want it to share and – with hope – promote the Gospel.
I don’t look back at previous entries; I remember most of them (in a general way). What I want to chat about are those entries where I don’t seem to have much to say in how to apply what we’ve read. Those entries are not my ‘lazy days’. They are when I feel that there’s not one word I can add to make the verses clearer or more adaptable to our lives. As we used to say, somethings are just as plain as the nose on your face. I’m not a theologian; I’m not even particularly smart when it comes to the Bible and the Gospel – or anything else for that matter. But “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matt 12:34 and 35). Jesus, of course, was right but sometimes the abundance of the heart overwhelms the words we might speak and that seems to happen to me quite a bit.
I just wanted to share that I felt perhaps I had let folks down by not having more to say in some of the posts. Maybe now it’s clearer to you and you have another facet by which to judge those things that are mine in a post.
Anyway – it’s true; God’s not finished with me yet, lol. I’m afraid He’s got a lot of work to do and bless His Holy Name that He still wants to fix me.

My dear Audre’,. My sweet sister in Christ. You need not be hard on yourself. Your posts are wonderful. I’m not a genius or scholar. What I think is that God uses us as he sees fit. Many individuals may be frightened off by the people of great intelligence or education, but he uses us for that gentle touch, just sharing our love for God from our personal experience. So give yourself a big hug and smile. That’s how we start those simple conversations with people we meet. I keep you in my prayers dear sister.
