Have you ever noticed anyone pacing while conversing on his or her cell phone?

I was recently at my favorite café, enjoying my decaf latte. The man next to me paced while conversing on his cell phone.

When his conversation ended, he went back to his seat, read the morning newspaper, and sipped his coffee until his phone rang again. He answered the call, got up, and began pacing once again.

Memorial Day

Written by

Memorial Day, or what was once known as Decoration Day, is a time to demonstrate gratitude for the ones who fell in battle while serving the United States of America.

Originating from the Civil War, Decoration Day was based upon the idea that people would honor fallen soldiers by decorating their graves with flowers.

General John Logan, who was the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially proclaimed May 5, 1868, Decoration Day.

Easter

The Day of the Resurrected Christ

In the gospel of Luke, it is written in Chapter 9: 23-24, “Then he told all of them, ‘If anyone wants to come with me, he must deny himself, pick up his cross every day, and follow me continuously, because whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it’” (ISV).1

Easter is a time when Christians celebrate the resurrected Christ. And though bunnies are very cute, that is not what Easter is all about. In fact, is Easter even about Jesus?

Bulimia

Written by

Divine Approval

I used to believe that food was my source of comfort and joy. That was until I found myself addicted to food and then it manifested into bulimia.

Bulimia is characterized by overeating, bouts of binging and purging. It preoccupies thought and distorts one’s self-image into a grave concept. Bulimia is a very serious mental health disorder that requires a drastic change in thought in order to manage it and heal it.

Limits or Limitations

“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind

Do this, don’t do that.

Can’t you read the sign?”

–Five Man Electrical Band

 

Why all the signs telling us what to do? Well, I suppose that somebody has to, or we would be living in chaos, but who are those somebodies deciding what the limits are?

Happy Valentines Day!

Written by

The facts vary as to how many Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually. The estimate ranges from 150 million to 1 billion! And that’s second to Christmas cards!

Either way, that’s a lot of well-intentioned love-thoughts sent out.

So how did all this Valentine’s Day hoopla begin? Much to our surprise, it turns out Valentine’s Day is tied to wolves! But how?

Paying Attention Or Paying the Price?

 

“Each day in the United States, over 8 people are killed and 1,161 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.”1 Distractions while driving include eating, daydreaming, taking your hands off the wheel, and, one that has been buzzing since its invention, using a cell phone.

The Armor of God

Written by

Ephesians 6:10-20 (ESV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.”

How Light Shines

Written by

Nothing shines in the dark. It is light which reveals the beauty and splendor of things. However, how exactly does light work, and where does it come from?

In physical science we learn that light comes from the sun by fusion or nuclear reaction. This is when hydrogen atoms from the core of the sun produces an exorbitant amount of heat that travels through the core to the surface of the sun. As it continues into space it creates sunlight.

Happy New Year? Not Without Happy Thoughts!

2016 will soon be behind us, and a new year awaits us. So, what are we going to do with the new year?

The answer to that question depends upon what kind of thoughts you will entertain. After all, the year itself does not care how you feel or what you do or don’t do. It’s just days on a calendar, and with or without your permission, time will continue. With each new year, we get another opportunity to repeat the offenses of the previous year or work to be transformed and renewed.
