The Default Christian Woman

I was wondering what you might think of these two pictures.

When you think of what a good wife is, does your mind conjure up an image similar to this?

Kickball Pulpit: What a Six Year Old Taught Me About Envy

I was a first base coach for kickball last fall. It was cold. Really cold. My fingers were numb and to be honest, I was not very interested in being there. I wanted to leave and get started on my long list of chores waiting for me at home.

You know how you hear things sometimes even when you aren’t really there, when you are not truly listening? I was staring at homeplate thinking about what I was going to do for supper yet I overheard the boy playing first shouting. He was ecstatic. “This is awesome! We are winning by 19!

The Pencil Speaks To Me

thispencilI watched my son as he did his work today, struggling yet persisting with this pencil. I asked if he wouldn’t like to use one of the new ones I bought to replace this old one. He refused, in fact, he adamantly resisted the idea.

“Silly, stubborn boy,” I thought.

Up in Smoke: James 4:14 in Pictures

What started out just as a photography exercise for me has turned into this post.  When I sorted through these images I was surprised to see so many pictures inside the pictures.   I was mesmerized by how the smoke from a snuffed out flame captured the thought of this verse:

“Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James 4:14

Not all is gloom and doom.  At the end of the slideshow I included some that I thought expressed these verses:

Let my prayer be set forth as incense before thee; The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.” Psalm 141:2

“And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.” Revelation 8:4
