The following testimony is very personal. I just finished - for the second time - the Setting Captives Free (settingcaptivesfree.com) course on Purity. I am sharing it here because I know that "no temptation has overtaken you but such as is comm... Read more
The subject of what we would do in the event of a sudden influx of money has entered my conversations lately. I had to face this kind of decision when my first husband passed away, and I had the insurance money. Well, we had a large credit d... Read more
Not too long before my husband passed away, I talked to him about the possibility of a mission trip that summer. The concern is always having enough in the account for the summer bills, whether I go or not - mine is a ten month job. Usually the ... Read more
It took a while before we got a PC. My son was a senior in high school and he'd gotten a scholarship for ONE evening class at the University of Rochester. And the assignments were given online. Soooooo...we had to get a computer. Oh, I recall my... Read more
I Love How He Does Things...
So today was the blood drive at school. I'm not super busy in my present assignment, and my friend who started teaching at my school this year had enlisted my help in the previous blood drive, so she asked me again this time. I can't give blood ... Read more
How Lovely Is His Dwelling Place
Ever since I met the Jesus Christ, I have loved going to church, to get in on the corporate worship and the teaching, as well as building relationships with the other members. I've found Him in different denominations and NON-denominations. I do... Read more
"Bendecida, Prosperada, y en Victoria" - Blessed, Prospering, and in Victory
My sister in Christ, dear friend, and "spiritually adopted" sister Vicky Campos would always use this phrase in response to the usual greeting of "How are you?" I met her first in 2006, the first time I went to Chiclayo with her flesh-n-blood s... Read more
Trials and Troubles

I'd made an appointment with the orthopod yesterday, a follow up visit from when I had the injection in my hip last month. The effect has pretty much worn off, and I'm taking the meloxicam again - trying for half a pill a day, or every other day... Read more
And not for burgers or chocolate or pizza.
Nor for lentil loaf, baked fish, or pink grapefruit.
I am hungry for more of the Lord. More of Jesus. More of God's presence in my life. More of the filling of the Holy Spirit. Only God can real... Read more
I Am Not Ashamed
Of course as a believer in Christ, I am not ashamed of the gospel - it is the power of salvation to all those who believe. I am not ashamed of Jesus Christ - for all He's done in my life, I want always in every way to honor Him.
But I reali... Read more
Be the Love
This is the phrase that has been repeating itself in my mind today.
I know there's that saying, "Be the change you want to see."
Personally, I can think of no greater or more powerful force for change than the Love of God. Even just based... Read more
Taking Personal Responsibility

I was so delighted this morning when I got on the scale - I'm down to a weight I haven't seen since it began creeping up on me again! The temptation is to become too relaxed. But I know I CAN take a LITTLE break, because I've already met my fit... Read more
