  1. Facing darkness as a child

    by , 3 Weeks Ago at 12:08 AM
    This is not a happy post, fair warning! I just feel like sharing this. It's about feelings I had during my childhood. Can anyone relate? ...



    This spinning dark place. This loneliness.
    As a child I was scared many times. Scared deeply. I thought of hell and the devil. I saw visions in blue when I closed my eyes. I had dark dreams. I felt one night, probably more than one night, that something was trying to possess me. Something was trying to get inside. So I muttered ...

    I love a good laugh, and I'm sure most of us know it's like medicine for the heart! Laughing and being silly help balance out my serous side.

    Anyhow, here are some sites I turn to regularly for cheering up. I hope you like them!

  3. Why keep Your scars, Jesus?

    by , November 25th, 2017 at 03:15 PM
    Talking to Jesus one morning, a question came to mind. Why did our risen Savior keep His scars when He visited His followers before He went to heaven?
    He could have closed up the holes in his wrists and side. Maybe they were kept in part so His followers would believe (like Thomas). I think they remained in part as a testimony of His love and sacrifice, as if to say, 'Oh, you don't think I love you? Look here, child. Look here.'
    I wonder if He bears those scars today.

  4. Thoughts on love

    by , November 25th, 2017 at 03:09 PM
    Don't regret having cared for someone. There's no shame in having poured out your love on another soul. Even if you were rejected, even if they wasted it, even if they betrayed you, that doesn't mean your gift was any less meaningful. It may sting when you first think of how your love was not accepted, as if you'd shot an arrow and missed a target widely, or perhaps as if you'd provided a pearl to someone only to have it crushed underfoot.
    Still, keep loving. Keep caring. Keep sharing your ...

  5. Dear church, I'm single and lonely

    by , October 9th, 2017 at 03:11 AM
    I have friends. I have a job. I go to church.
    I'm also super lonely at times.
    I sometimes feel like an outsider at churches because I'm not married and have no children.
    It seems to me that if you hang around churches enough, you'll get the idea that life only really begins when you get married and have kids.
    The Christian ideal is out there, communicated in subtle ways: the pretty little wife, the handsome husband in khaki pants, and two adorable kids. That is a world ...
