This 'n' That

Perhaps one of the most frustrating things for a blogger is to have a draft post disappear after it's nearly completed. So, that makes this writer a slightly frustrated blogger right now! This post was completed and nearly ready for publication hours ago, but disappeared before it posted. So, I'm left trying to re-create this week's wit, and will likely fail miserably. If I was superstitious, I'd attribute this to today's date, but I fear instead that I probably have to blame myself. Chances are, in the middle of multitasking, I failed to hit "Save" and therefore am fully responsible for my current annoying position!

On a weather-related note, it looks like much of the Midwest will spend the weekend bundled up and trudging through snow. In Nashville, it seems a light dusting of snow (that has now disappeared) has caused many schools to close for the day. Oh, what a difference a few states makes! It always amazes me how, even in those states that are accustomed to winter weather and snow, things are brought to a near standstill with the first snowfall of the season. Even "lifers" who were born and raised in the cold and snow seem to forget how to drive when that first snowflake hits their windshield. Indeed, it makes for some rather interesting commutes! But, as I look out my own window, I see a beautiful white blanket and am reminded of the goodness of God, and of the amazing incomprehensible truth of the greatness of salvation. Thank You, Lord, for Your cleansing.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
So, whether you live somewhere that will find you and your dog utilizing your Snuggies today or not, I hope you'll enjoy today's week in review (kind of):
  • Ed Young and his wife are currently on the roof of their church. In a bed.
  • The Code Orange Revival kicked off Wednesday night with Craig Groeschel. His message was...well, we learned a lot about Craig Groeschel.
  • Herescope continues their series regarding communication with the dead. Read Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.
  • Patricia King has received 5 prophetic insights about the coming year. Coincidentally, she also has products for sale that will help with each one.
  • Still not sure what to think about Lectio Divina and the whole "listening for the voice of God" and "hearing from God" thing? Perhaps this will help:


  1. I am only about 10 minutes into this, but help. I grew up in the RC charismatic movement, saved in the Baptist church and landed in the AOG about 6 years ago...so forgive my ignorance.
    What about His sheep knowing His voice? Is His voice the Word? I have been trolling your sight and others for a few days now and I am a little overwhelmed. We have a lot at stake here with five kids. My husband and I are looking at each other and wondering what do we do now?
    PS please forgive the drama here. I think that my world just got rocked. Jesus is the rock of my salvation for sure...but I think the area rug that I had so neatly on top of it has just been pulled out.

  2. Hi Maryellen,

    I'd love to discuss further with you and point you to some additional resources. I fear the conversation could become a bit lengthy for the comment string, though! Would you mind contacting me via the "Contact" button at the top of the page?

  3. Just heard the comment about the woman you worked with at Focus on the Family killing herself because of her unworthiness...Wow.
    Going to the contact page now...
