There seems to be an interest in getting a bird’s eye view of other people making foolish mistakes or trying to be something they can’t possibly be. We see it in the weekly reality shows on television – movies- in the entertainment industry – in the news and just about everywhere we go. Somehow it makes some folks feel better about themselves when others fail. If we are to believe that what we see on the tube is reality, it’s easy to understand why we’re in such a mess right now. None of us is in a position to judge others. Only God can determine what is right and wrong. However, we have a legal system in our country that is currently upside down. The laws are often made to protect the offender, rather than the subject of the offense.

Everyone of us is a sinner.  It’s part of our DNA and was passed down from  Adam and Eve.  When they disobeyed God, humanity’s relationship with Him was severed.  He no longer would physically walk with His disobedient children.  There now was a separation that put man and God at opposition.  Still God loves His children and doesn’t want to lose them, so He provided a way for their redemption –  His own blood.

Everyone has a secret we don’t want the world to know.  We fall short of God’s expectations, but He invites us back into His arms when we realize our sins, repent of them and strive to change with His help.

The church has been referred to by some as an elite country club full of hypocrites.  I like to think of it as a hospital for sinners – a cafeteria where the food of life is served – a place to come and get a fresh start. Our hope is built on God’s generous, undeserved forgiveness.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2 ESV



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    In Christ, gal 2.20, I am no longer Alive, but Christ lives in me. The life that I now live… is by the “Faith of” Jesus… His faith/faithfulness… I am dead. I am no longer identified by my sin or the “flesh”. I am no longer a “sinner” by identification. My identity and whole identification before God is “In Christ”. I am a Saint only by the Blood and continued supply of the righteousness of Christ Jesus. I am not a Sinner… I am a Saint

  3. I’m disgusted with the click bait saying “______ humiliates himself on live TV,” and if it’s someone you don’t like, you’re expected to click on it and gloat. I try to remember the Golden Rule and delete these, since that’s what I would want done if they were videos of MY blunders.
