I learned something new today. Apparently, I hate Standard Time. I’m not sure about everyone else, but I’d always thought I hated “Daylight Savings Time.” That unenviable morning in early November that gives us an extra hour of sleep but extra waking hours of darkness. But that moment is not when Daylight Savings Time begins. […]

Be Born In Me

This day, I wonder how Mary felt as she waited in anxious expectation of her baby. I may never fully get it, but I pray that He is born in me as he was in Mary all those years ago. Merry Christmas everyone!

are you a christian? and the trapping of christmas

My day care provider asked me today if I was a Christian. I hesitated for a moment, afraid of where the conversation was going. Just the other day a Jehovah’s Witness knocked on the door asking if I believed what the Bible says. I told him that I did but did not want any more […]
