On Ladies’ Meetings and Shoeboxes

Our church holds ladies’ meetings. (yeah. Way to start off a post, right?)

A couple weeks ago, it was one such meeting. We normally hold it at someone’s house, but this time it was in our church’s fellowship hall.

It was a long hard day at work for me. I was dirty, sweaty, and tired; and I only had about an hour to get a shower and get cleaned up and put my feet up for a few minutes. Continue reading “On Ladies’ Meetings and Shoeboxes”

Are We Seeking to Be Moral Christians or Godly Christians?

I am enjoying reading “Counter Culture” by David Platt. If you think this is a weird way to start a blog post, by all means, keep reading. It will get better.

But these are some thoughts I have on why what is viewed as pro-women is not working for our society. Continue reading “Feminism: Thoughts on How the Pro-Women Movement isn’t as Good as it Seems”

Changing Seasons

I just have to say it:

I’m starting to enjoy this Fall thing.

It’s just started to turn into Fall here and I’m starting to get excited thinking about pumpkin muffins, hot chocolate, and sweaters.

I think I enjoy Fall more than Winter because by the time Winter rolls around (after Christmas, that is) you are tired of the cold and feeling like a marshmallow in all the layers of clothing. Continue reading “Changing Seasons”
