Mullings & Musings

"...a keeper. It meets all requirements, it's easy, low calorie, low fat, and it's pretty, to boot! You absolutely won't believe that this dessert is light."

"I whisper it soft:

When we break each other… we break Jesus.

We break Jesus..."

"From the head to the heart, from the heart to the mind
The Truth must make a journey if we ever hope to find
You can see it as a bridge on a narrow winding road
The fact is Truth must travel if it ever will be told"

"I struggle sometimes with that first-world, middle-class guilt. The one that says 'what did I ever do to deserve being born here, while another woman is born in Africa, fighting AIDS and watching her children die of starvation in the midst of a civil war?'

The answer? Nothing.

But somehow, for some reason, this is where our sovereign God has placed me. In a nation of wealth and resources and luxuries and comfort.

It is a weighty responsibility. "To whom much is given, much will be required..." (Luke 12:48)

...Living simply so we can give generously..."

  • "Tips for Bible Memory" (One of my favorite reasons for helping the kiddos memorize their verses? I memorize right along with them - even if I'm not as good at it as my 4 year old!)
"It’s easier to memorize a verse if you know what it means....It’s easier to memorize a verse if the verse is meaningful to you....It’s easier to memorize a verse if you use many of your senses to learn it. ...It’s easier to memorize a verse if you repeat it many, many times....It’s easier to memorize a verse if you say it with a “sing-songy” voice."
