  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them – they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • This year, Easter coincided with April Fools’ Day. I have to chuckle because God gets the first laugh. When everyone thought that Jesus was dead and done, God says, “I’m not finished. Surprise! Jesus is alive!” God showed the world on that first Easter that He can fix anything.

  • The other day a coworker was telling me about the time he got a huge insurance check after his house flooded and how he learned that if you have lots of money to spend at The Home Depot they treat you as if you were of a superior species.

  • Sandwich bread is usually one of the first items to go on the grocery list. But with all the options in the bread aisle, it’s easy to become overwhelmed trying to choose the healthiest option for you and your family. Words commonly seen on bread labels include natural, multi-grain, whole grain, whole wheat, enriched and no added sugar. The list doesn’t stop there. What does it all mean?
