Average Joe

Each time I watch the Olympics, I always have the same thought- we need an average Joe.  If I was in charge I would insist we start each event with a random drawing from the list of spectators- “Would the person sitting in Section F, Row 16, Seat 7 please report to the starting line or the ice rink, whatever the event.”  Then we would all watch as the average Joe, someone like us, attempted the event.

3 Godly Goals

Micah was asking rhetorical questions and providing God’s answers.  In verse 8, he asks “what does the Lord require of you?”  In light of today’s topic, he is asking- “what are God’s goals for you this year?”  “How does God want you to live your life?” And then Micah states God’s answer.  It is simple, yet perfect- act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.  This, my friends, should be our top three goals this year and every year.  Keep reading.

Precious Lil' Idols

It was Christmas Eve 2013.  I was busy in the kitchen chopping the salad, mixing fondue seasonings and fretting over each detail of our traditional fondue meal when my daughter, Maddy, called me into the living room.  She had a surprise gift for me.  I saw the size of the package and immediately knew what it was – telescoping fondue forks.  I had seen them at the store the previous week.  Sweet, but not tradition.  I considered that Jody, her dad and keeper of all traditions, would not be happy with the change.  Nevertheless, I put on my brave face and opened the gift.  But as soon as I began to unwrap it, I realized that I was wrong.  This was not trendy fondue forks.  Instead, I found a picture of a POSITIVE pregnancy test!
