Love

True love is without conditions, it endures, forgives, loves you just for who you are. Only a man or woman who understands and give true love can receive and know true love. True love is from God, hence the reason you will know true love when you see or meet it.

t is one thing to read about unconditional love and another to show it. When God talked about what love is, I thought I understood and had that type of love but I didn’t until God thought it to me through meeting other people and truly loving them for who they are and not as I would like them to be.

In a family of eleven, everything is a big deal.

However it was bath time, grooming time, story time and bed time that took a lot of creative problem solving abilities as well as a big investment in time. On hectic days this routine became an assembly line. Step one:I would add a little more hot water to the tub and the next little one would hop in and start playing as they waited their turn. Meanwhile I dried a little body, wrapped them up in a huge towel, brushed their hair and set up a tooth-brush for the clean child. After brushing their teeth, the clean little kid proceeded into...

Today I saw a movie by name OH MY GOD and certainly, that moved me a lot. We all, so casually sign contracts to agree upon the contractual obligations, that on account of losses due to Act of God, the insurance cover is not available. Conveniently the God is inserted in the legal documents and THE GODS ACT CANNOT BE CHALLENGED IN ANY COURT OF LAW…However, in this movie a petitioner who incurs huge losses on account of, request court to summon messengers/custodians of God into the court for compensation. He pleads that since it is an ACT OF GOD, the God must compensate him and that’s how he... Read More

Our farm animals were so full of character, their antics alone will be the subject of many upcoming stories. Of course, the kids were always entertained by the farm animals but my husband and I were as well. Michael especially enjoyed his intelligent pigs, believing that when animals felt loved, they related to people in extraordinary ways. It is true that when my husband scratched, behind his beloved pig's ears, they actually fell asleep. Then there was Daisy, our goat, and our pony Starlight who both tried to get into the house because they considered themselves part of the family. Actually,... Read More

I sit at my computer all Saturday, and this is the place I should be. I begin early with ambition, 5:00 AM. Blank white windows on my Mac's Retina screen await my brilliant ideas, and my mind is bubbling with them. But I wait to write because I need to research my ideas. I can't just whip out whatever slop comes to my mind. No, I need some scholarship to support my ideas and clarify my thinking.Hours pass as I not only read too much about my topic but spend time promoting my blog, sending emails, feeding children, and raking some dry yellow leaves that have fallen from my backyard birch....

Children are like sponges; they absorb values, attitudes, culture and spirituality simply through osmosis. However, it goes deeper than that. Children's spirituality is not simply taught, it rises from within as they listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit in their own hearts. Often what came out of our children's mouths surprised and startled us. Yet both my husband and I were often aware of the deep spirituality that flowed from our children to us as well as from us as parents to our offspring.

For example, I was rocking newborn Mara, one afternoon, while eighteen-month old Melissa... Read More

One afternoon, I was making dinner, standing at the counter with my back to our three youngest children. Katie and Anthony were lounging around the kitchen table, with three-year-old Lucy perched like a little elf on a high stool, happily swinging her legs.

Simply making conversation, Katie who was about eight, asked Lucy,

"Lucy, whose your favorite, mum or dad?"

Lucy replied,"Both!"

Still facing the counter, I looked over my shoulder and intruded on their conversation,

"Smart answer, Lucy."

Lucy was not done, though,

"But she's not my real mum,... Read More
