Hurt People, Hurt People

I think it’s funny that we so often view Biblical characters as the ultimate role models. Sure, there are plenty of heroes demonstrating obedience, faith and love. But, more often than not, the majority of Biblical characters are much like the rest of us…human and flawed. No matter the character or their behaviors, we can both relate to them and learn from them. With that said, this past weekend, my church started a new series called, “Bad Boys of the Bible.” Catchy…right?We started this series by looking at the book of Philemon…25 verses squeezed between...

Selfie Saturday

June 25, 2011
Psalm 31:30 “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”This week’s Selfie Saturday prompt is “perfection.” Ironically enough, I wasn’t planning to take this portrait…I was really just trying to check the height on my tripod as well as my focus (the height was off even if my focus is okay). I nearly deleted it, but there was just something about this shot that kept me hanging on. Furthermore, I can’t decide if I like the color or black and white version better. What do you think? Have a wonderful...
