We face temptation every day, don’t we? We face temptation when those unhealthy bags of chips (or ice cream if you have a sweet tooth) are looking yummy even though we just ate lunch. Do we cave in and eat it? Oh, how tempting that can be. We also face temptation when we see thatContinue reading “Facing Temptation”
During this past week, one of my Twitter pals tweeted a question to his followers. He asked: What does your name mean? When I saw this tweet, I was like, “Oh! This will be fun!” So, I looked up my name’s meaning. I learned that the name “Amanda” is of Latin origin and means “loveable”Continue reading “To Be “Loveable””
I had a very interesting New Year’s this year. To start, at the end of December, I learned that our family dog will need a pacemaker because she has a disease known as “Sick Sinus Syndrome.” This is a disease in which the heart’s natural pacemaker becomes damaged and is no longer able to generateContinue reading “What is Your Attitude?”
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. – Matthew 2:10-11 First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I pray that allContinue reading “The Magi”
My family is a big one. I have 5 brothers, 3 sisters; I am an aunt to 14 and a great aunt to 9. Most of us normally get together during the holidays. However, this year is a bit different. We are all doing our own Christmas. This does not stop us from buying eachContinue reading “A Cheerful Heart”
Christmas time is approaching quickly! Because of that, I decided to bake some cookies for my co-workers. Now, my all-time favorite holiday cookie is gingerbread. I do not mean the hard crunchy kinds that are used to make houses (though those are fun to make). I mean the soft delicious kinds that make you feelContinue reading “Throughout the Dough”
The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to Peter and John while they were speaking to the people. They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. They seized Peter and John and because it was evening, theyContinue reading “Whatever the Risks”
The beginning of this past week, I was at work. While I was gathering up dirty dishes and cleaning tables and whatnot, one of our guests approached me. He told me, “Thank you for everything that you do, I want you to have this”, and indicated for me to hold out my hand. When IContinue reading “God is Enough”
I am still reading in Luke with my family. We recently went over Luke 22. The part that stood out was when Jesus was at the Mount of Olives, before being taken into custody, and was agonizing in the garden. He (Jesus) withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them (his disciples), knelt down, and prayed,Continue reading “Agonizing in the Garden”
I recently read Chapter 8 of the Book of Luke, and something stood out to me. It was when I read the passage where Jesus restores a demon-possessed man and casts the demons out into a herd of pigs: Jesus asked him, “What is your name?””Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him.Continue reading “Legion”
