Don’t you wish it were possible to bottle up memories? To preserve them in a jar that you could open up any time in order to relive the joy of precious moments?
My past few weeks have been filled with memories I wish would linger longer so I could savour more. My husband and I and our […]
Ever had trouble with an electronic device that didn’t seem to be working, only to realize that it wasn’t plugged in? Those are the embarrassing moments where you wish you hadn’t asked for help.
I assume we’ve all had that happen before.

Having been sent by Yahweh with the command to confront Pharaoh and rescue God’s chosen people, Moses timidly asks the Voice coming from the burning bush, “Who should I tell them sent me?”

The other evening my husband and I were sitting in our living room — him on the chair, me on the couch. Our conversation was interrupted by a noise that was barely audible…thankfully, not a mouse! But we both could hear a high-pitched buzzing sound. I looked in his direction, and he looked in mine.
Today I received my Immigration Card for Deutschland!
This means that I can enter the country as a resident, not a tourist, that I can live here as long as I want, and that I am allowed to work. Woo hoo! Now that the paperwork and everything has gone through, I am also able to […]
One of the greatest promises in Scripture is that we are not alone. And the outworking of that is perhaps one of the most mysterious concepts in Christianity: that we are in Christ, and the Holy Spirit is in us, and Christ is in God.
Take this verse from Colossians 3:3 – “For you […]
Well we’re in the middle of packing up and getting ready to move! Our neighbors are leaving tomorrow for a trip to Germany and have offered to take some extra luggage for us, so we’re getting two suitcases ready to send off with them. The house is looking emptier and as we begin to say […]
