Today's News

  • Loving/hating God’s rescue

    Here’s the dichotomy: One of the things I love most about God is also the thing I hate most.
    His help is always on time. Always. He is never, ever late. But he’s also rarely, if ever, early.
    And it makes me crazy. Grab the bottle of Xanax crazy.
    After I had my first daughter, I became afraid of what I thought was an increasingly evil world and didn’t want to bring another child into it. Maybe my fear was grounded in truth - the world is evil - but it was also based on a deep lack of trust in God’s ability to care for me and my family.

  • It’s the party, dummy!

    You know what really irks me? When people at work don’t turn off the bathroom light when they’re done.
    Our company is trying to reduce expenses and one of the easiest things to do is Turn. Off. The. Light!
    I don’t know if it’s a problem with the men’s bathroom, although I’m guessing it is. So, men: Turn. Off. The. Light. Too!
    There, I said it, and that sure felt good.
