  • Atheists spreading message of nothing

    The atheists are recruiting.
    Let me explain. I absolutely love the Kentucky State Fair. It is something I typically never miss. The weird food, awesome displays of agriculture, the maze of flea market trinkets, etc.
    One thing that absolutely blew my mind this year was a sad and unusual booth I encountered. I was walking by this unattended booth and stopped as it had a statue of Mark Twain, and the back wall was covered with posters of celebrities.

  • Lukewarm about salvation? God will spit you from his mouth

    I often times question my own salvation, as I think we all do. I sometimes feel as if I am pretty much doing nothing to honor Christ with my life.
    I attend and participate in church, but often don’t feel satisfied that I am doing enough.
    I clearly recognize that one cannot earn their way to heaven as we are saved by grace not works (Ephesians 2:8).
    A true believer is saved by grace that produces works. However I often feel like I fall into the category “lukewarm.”

  • You can always count on change

    Every so often my husband gets a certain look in his eye and then says, “Before you say no, hear me out.”
    What comes next almost always involves a stepladder, can of spackle, his drill and a huge mess.
    I remember the time he tore the spare bedroom apart and temporarily stored a bed in the front bathroom. For days I muttered, “There’s a bed in my bathroom!”
