WE ’GOTTA’ CHOOSE!

5/17/2022
Do you remember or have you seen a sitcom years ago called "Lavern & Shirley"? Two working girls against the world. Lavern had a favorite drink of milk and Pepsi, half and half in the same glass. Yuck, I say! But she loved it. So what was it in the end? Well, that's the point. It could demonstrate worry and trust in the same heart at the same time. Not possible! Either worry prevails or trust prevails because the dominant thought wins!

Two Way Teaching

5/11/2022
I received a phone call from a young woman and she stated this: "You have 5 mInutes to talk me out of an abortion." She asked, "If I go through with this, will I go to hell?"

LIFE AT THE CROSSROADS

5/3/2022
I talked to a DP&L guy once about electricity . . he really tried to explain it to me . . but I could not grasp the technicalities. How about you? However, not understanding it does not keep us from enjoying the benefits of having it. Plus we are using faith when we flip the switch that we believe the light or gadget will come on.

Putin FAILS on even the Negative Side

4/26/2022
The negative side is the negative version of "The Golden Rule". Putin not only does not do good to others, he does evil to others that he would not want done to himself and the ones he (cares?) about.

Not the Power of Positive Thinking

4/20/2022
Please check out the picture for this week on my blog www.whatwouldajesusgirldo.com. It will help you understand today's podcast. A young widow dressed in black is kneeling beside the bed. A toddler is on the bed while a picture of her soldier husband is on the wall. Jesus is standing in a light with a hand extended to comfort her. How many widows are there now from Ukraine and other parts of the world? My husband who was injured in VietNam says 'war is a terrible thing'.

Do You Feel Your Hands are Tied?

4/13/2022
If a person you know 'swears like a sailor' or its 'chronically rude to waitresses or a sales person or blatantly makes fun of church or our Savior . . those would be important clues. Keep your eyes open to make assessments as well as listen with your ears while praying for answers. I'm not saying you cannot be friends with such a person because Scripture states 'if possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men." Romans 12:18. Maybe you can influence them for the good!

JUDGE NOT ??

4/6/2022
I was shaking. Not just on the outside, but on the inside too. I had just finished watching a 2nd video beamed to the U. N. Security Council from Vladimir Zelenskyy. Atrocities appeared shrouded in an eerie darkness especially in the faces of the tortured . . and children! there were women (I saw the painted finger nails) and ones who looked old enough to be grandparents. It was Tuesday morning and time to work on my blog. Instead I stepped out the patio door to pick up sticks, sweep cement...

How, Lord? How can we not worry?

3/30/2022
The last sentence really hits home right now. Every day when I get up I refuse to turn on the TV or look at news anywhere until time for Jerry to get up / take meds / breakfast / insulin. But I'm wondering before that what is happening in Ukraine? What has Putin done now? Are all the refugees safe, warm and fed? There are reportedly people starving in Ukraine that cannot get out.

Tri-County Jail & ’Not Me’

3/23/2022
Critique of a TV commercial and my first visit to the Tri-County jail. On my blog there's a generic picture of a woman in jail. But on the podcast, and the words of the blog, I am visiting my daughter. There is a window sealed into the wall between us and she is wearing a jump suit.

Did you know blood cries to God?

3/20/2022
Sunday Devotional - Current Events The first book of the Bible . . Genesis chapter 4 tells about the rift between the two male children of Adam and Eve. Cain killed Abel. I used to have a problem remembering which man was murdered. Then a Bible teacher said she remembers this: Cain killed Abel with the leg of a table. It rhymes. I hope that does not sound disrespectful to scripture. I was never mixed up again. (about that anyway)

Open Message* to Vladimir Putin

3/17/2022
People hate this kind of talk. Raw truth is never popular. But here it is, bluntly spoken. Because you run roughshod over the poor and take the bread right out of their mouths, you're never going to move into the luxury homes you have built . . . portion of Amos 5:10-12

Doodle Bugs

3/9/2022
My favorite Bible teacher is Dr. Applebee from London. When he was a young man, he lived in London during WWII. There were flying bombs, Doodle Bugs, the GI's called them. They were Ram Jet flying bombs. (You can see videos about them on YouTube.). When the jet engine ran out of fuel, they just dropped like a stone onto London. All wondered how they were guided from the low lands.

The Blood Connection /Sunday Devotional / Current Events

3/6/2022
Current Events - If Putin's War leads to a nuclear war, many of us will die. Do you know for sure where you will go after death? If you believe you will go to heaven, it will not be because of the following: You always went to church / tithe your income / are better than your neighbor / gave away $$ all the time / were raised in a church and baptized and pray every day / keep the 10 commandments / the good you do outweighs the bad you do.

What is Your Attitude?

3/2/2022
Jesus was not condemning praying while standing up. (See Luke 18:9-14). The issue was attitude. Are you upset? If we are upset while having food and warmth . . how must those enduring many scarcities of comfort, not to mention being separated from their families . . how upset must they be?

OVER MY HEAD - SUNDAY DEVOTIONAL - current event

2/27/2022
A few days ago my husband, Jerry, and I watched the bombing of Ukraine ordered by Putin who is a dictator. I had a gut reaction of nausea, shaking and tears. Except for movies, it was impossible for me to understand and imagine what it was like to be sheltered with bombs falling.

PRETEND CRAYONS

2/23/2022
Let's pretend we're watching an episode of "Little House on the Prairie". The youngest girl, Carrie, had crayons, (pretend). She drew a picture for Mommy's birthday. Mommy hung it up where everyone could see. Carrie's picture made Mommy happy. When Nellie (the storekeepers daughter), found out, she decided to draw a picture for her mother too. Nellie drew a picture of herself.

DO YOU HAVE ENEMIES?

2/16/2022
There is a Rabbinic tale which tells of the destruction of the Egyptians in the Red Sea. (Think the 10 Commandments movie with Charleton Heston). When the Egyptians were drowned, so the tale runs, the angels began a song of praise, but God said sorrowfully: "The work of my hands are sunk in the sea, and you would sing before me?!" The love of God is such that He can never take pleasure in the destruction of any of the creatures whom His hands have made. Today's scripture seems to be the...

Beyond Justice

2/9/2022
A subject debated, misunderstood and the cause of much confusion. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. How many times have you heard that said? People say it as though they intend to carry it out. However, this law did not involve a private individual. It was a law laid down for a Judge in the law court to assess punishment and penalty. Called the Lex Talionis, the original aim was the limitation of vengeance.
