    Singles Dinners

    It's cold and rainy, and I was so tired that I forgot to pick up something for dinner on the way home tonight. And I don't want to swim back out, so I cleaned out the frig. :) Leftover mac&cheese mixed with a little bit of diced ham, a couple of spoons of REAL bacon bits, a little onion, a few...

    Does it help you at all?

    We share a lot here. Why do you do it? Do the words of others help you at all? Challenge you at all? I do it for a couple of reasons: 1. It's easier for me to sort my thoughts and feelings by writing them down rather than talking. I'm a very quiet person. I don't like to talk a lot. :) 2...

    Miraculous Blessings

    They happen all the time. Do we recognize them? :confused: On the way to work this morning I heard about a youth group that ordered a pizza, took up a large collection for the pizza guy's tip, and ended up tipping him over $100. He said that he'd been going through an extremely difficult time...

    I disagree

    How do you handle disagreements/arguments? Do you avoid confrontation altogether? Do you give in to "keep the peace"? If so, how does bottling it up work for you? Do you pray first? Walk away and take time to reflect before approaching the topic, which may have simply been a misunderstanding...

    Something I read today and wanted to share here

    MARRIED OR NOT, YOU SHOULD READ THIS ... “When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat... down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know...

    Stuff that just won't work for Singles

    When you are about to use the last of the toilet paper, but you are in a hurry and don't want to have to put a new roll on, so you use part of a new roll, but leave it for someone else to change. :o

    A Fail

    How do you respond to a fail? Sin. Do you make excuses? Do you assign blame? Do you rebel? Do you shake it off? Or do you use it as a learning opportunity for yourself and others? Consider this: Samuel 12 New International Version (NIV)Nathan Rebukes David12 The Lord sent Nathan to David...

    Being Waterlogged

    We all know what happens when plants don't get enough water. They die. Period. But...I was looking at my plants yesterday and began to ponder something else. What happens when a leaf become waterlogged? When it just hangs lazily from the bottom of the plant, soaking up the water, but never...

    What does being "unequally yoked" mean to YOU?

    We hear it all the time. But what does it mean to YOU? The scripture says not to be with an unbeliever, but is there more to it than this? Can believers also be unequally yoked with one another with regard to spiritual maturity? Have you experienced this? Dated a non-believer? Dated someone...

    Simple Things

    I'm sitting here on my day off for a few minutes, enjoying the sight/sound of rain and wind against the window. We are so "Martha" most of the time...or at least I am so very guilty of this. Most days are a blur, but this forum encourages me to take time to reflect. Anyone else? :rolleyes...

    His vs Yours

    We talk a lot about we want...maybe even expect out of life, relationships, etc., but what do you think God may have planned for your life? Has He talked with you about it? Have you talked with Him about it? What surprises has God placed in your life in this area? Roads less traveled? Twists...

    A Little Child Shall Lead Them...

    Something has been bouncing around in my brain since Saturday... While I was at a flea market with friends, one of them (a Christian) made a comment about a man standing in the street. From the looks on the others' faces, it was as troubling to them as it was to me, yet we all remained silent...

    medical tests

    I will be undergoing some critical medical tests in a few days and would appreciate your prayers. I know He has it all under control, but due to some other things going on right now, I'm a little unnerved. It's pretty serious stuff. Thank you in advance for your loving kindness.

    Deeper than you thought?

    I can be so superficial sometimes. How about you? Do you ever form opinions about someone based upon what little you see and/or hear? We probably all do it from time to time. People are doing it to us everyday too, right? Judging us and filing us away into little categories in the mind...
