Feeling Holy?

Feeling Holy?

by Melissa Spoelstra
Holy means “set apart.” It is a word used of God’s character. He is not like us, special, perfect. Yet the crazy thing is that God calls those who choose to follow Him – holy. In Paul’s greeting to the church at Corinth we find these words which very much apply to us,

Dear Other Woman: A Message for the Woman in the Mirror

by Barbara Roose
Remember when we used to love hanging out with each other? Hmm, how old were we back then – two or three years old? How cute were we! Ahh, in those early years we couldn’t get enough of each other. We snuggle up close and do kissy-lips with at each other. We’d play endless games of hide-n-seek. By the way, you’re horrible at that game! Whenever it was my turn to count, I’d peek while counting and you never moved. What’s up with that?

Run for your Life

Run for your Life

by Melissa Spoelstra
Running is usually a mark of a coward, but sometimes God calls us to flee. When Potiphar’s wife tempted Joseph daily by inviting him to sleep with her, he learned to stay out of her way. Then when she cornered him in the house and insisted she get her way, he ran! The Apostle Paul wrote, “Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22). God also might call us to flee a toxic relationship, a compromising job, or a spiritually abusive relationship or group. While we can’t run away from every problem, there is a time when God says the best thing to do is get out of Dodge.

Embracing Good Enough

Embracing Good Enough

by Kimberly Shimer
One of the gifts I requested and received for my birthday was a magnifying/make-up mirror. As I grow older, less trusting of my appearance, and more likely to apply copious amounts of concealer, I thought it important that I had an accurate view of my true self. However, when I saw the price tag on this fancy mirror, and I saw my reflection in way too much detail, I decided it wasn't worth that kind of money to see myself in such an unflattering light. Therefore, I returned the high-end mirror and picked up a cheap plastic one. It requires me to squint to avoid a distorted view, but it shows my flaws just the same.
Seashell Reflections from the Shore

Seashell Reflections from the Shore

by Kimberly Shimer
Last weekend I said goodbye to the Jersey shore (what we Philadelphia-area folks call the “beach”). Despite only visiting on a couple of occasions this summer, it's always my favorite part of the year. There's something so relaxing and at the same time so exciting about being at the shore. The waves, the wind, the sunshine...it’s most definitely my happy place!
