Blast From The Past : Drowning In Fear

This post was originally published on HolyLemonade.blogspot.com. I originally started a blog on WordPress.org a few years ago called Holy Lemonade. As life would have it, I was unable to pay for the hosting and domain and I lost all of my hard work. There’s probably a way to recover these posts, but at the

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day One

Psalm 1 I love the imagery in this chapter. When we remain obedient to God, we are like a tree planted near the water. We bear fruit in season, and our leaves don’t die. Everything we do succeeds. I’m doing a little challenge for myself, one Psalm a day, everyday for the whole book -150

Confession. I cannot, for the life of me, work the stupid Xbox controller. The reason is a complete mystery, not only to me, but to my family as well. They watch me throw a tantrum and yell at the console as the buttons refuse to do what I want, when I want it. It’s not

Let Down Your Nets

“Your faith can move mountains, and your doubt can create them.” It’s the quote that generated after doing one of those little Facebook tests. My quote for 2017, I think, that I clicked on out of boredom shortly after the new year. Silly? Yes, but oh so fitting. Even before this decision to be a

Changing Perspective

A few months back,  I heard someone from outside the country say that in America, we don’t work to live, we live to work. She’s right. We are career obsessed. Our whole lives are centered around what job we have. We are judged by what we do for a living, by others and also by
