Count it all joy

Count it all joy

I was on my way home from work one evening when my girlfriend called me on my cell. I happily answered and just from the sound of her “hello”, I knew she was not well..

  • Who Should Act Right First?

    The husband or the wife? The short answer is both. However, we tend to point the finger at the other person. We may even use the Bible to solidify our position

  • Y.O.L.O.

    I recently saw a post that asked, “What line do you use before making a bad decision?” And I instantly thought “YOLO!” You only live once so why not?

  • Penalty Rates – what of Ministers

    This affects all church goers. There are quite a few of us, in the millions in Australia alone. In some places, Church building are being sold due to a lack of parishioners.

  • Climate Change and Religion

    The arguments have been out there for years now  -  I am doubtful now whether I could even explain what Climate Change is  -  as my feeble attempt would have both sides of the fence down on me like a ton of bricks.

  • Love, the superior way

    Is sympathy a synonym for love? It was a question that came to mind as I was watching “The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock. Her character, Leigh Anne Tuohy, sympathized with a young man named Michael Oher, who seemed to be lacking the basic needs of life.

  • You Don't Have to Be Enough

    I used to feel like I would never measure up. I knew I loved to sing, but I could not sing as well as that other girl.
