Angels and Demons

May 10, 2011
This past weekend, I attended my husband’s hometown church. The visiting minister delivered quite a message, but I didn’t take notes. Meanwhile, my church continued their series “Between a Rock and a Hard Place.” I was able to watch and listen to an interesting discussion entitled “Does Satan Exist” yesterday – click HERE if you’re interested.  As I do every week, I thought I’d share some of what I learned (I also find it’s a good way for me to really reflect on God’s word throughout the week).Before we speak directly of...

This past weekend, my church continued their series “Between a Rock and a Hard Place.” Last week, we kicked it off with “Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?” This week, we tackled creationism and evolution…and to be honest, this is one of those things that you either believe or you don’t.

Marked by Love

April 12, 2011
Over the weekend, my husband and I drove a couple of hours down to Wrightsville Beach, NC to attend our friends’ wedding. I’d love to say that it was a beautiful weekend…but that just wasn’t the case. However, much like I said yesterday, God is GOOD and he was sure to bring in a small dose of sunshine just in time for their wedding ceremony on the beach. Ironically enough, the minister at the wedding spoke of the same thing that our minister spoke of just a couple of weeks ago (to listen to the original message, click HERE) – Love…specifically how we should...
