Psalm 54: Can Lament Help Cure Worry?

 January 7, 2019

If it can be worried about, it must be worried about. That’s one of my life philosophies. Not that it’s a good one. Not that it was one of my own choosing. My mother, a champion worrier, handed this philosophy down to me. I wish I could be rid of this obsessive worry. I’m working […]

Psalm 53:  Rinse and Repeat

 January 1, 2019

“Do it again, do it again,” small children say over and over again when engaged in a favorite activity. One push on a swing is never enough. You have to keep pushing till you drop from exhaustion. It isn’t enough to read a favorite book once. It has to be read multiple times till you […]

Psalm 52: Seeking the Truth

Psalm 50:  What Does it Mean to Offer a Sacrifice of Praise?

 December 11, 2018

Psalm 50 and Paul in Hebrews 13:15 speak of offering God a sacrifice of praise (“Through him, then, let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.”), but what does that mean? How can praising God be a sacrifice? Isn’t it a joy and […]

NaNoWriMo 2018

 December 4, 2018

NaNoWriMo 2018 is done. I now have 52,501 words as the basis for book eight of my Dancing through Life series. It’s a wonder to me that I made it, as ill-prepared as I was going into the month. There’s something about having a public goal and knowing so many other writers have that same […]
