March 29 – Pure Joy

March 29 – Pure Joy

#88of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Today’s lesson in about elation or pure joy. As an adult, we worry. We worry about our friends, family, finances, work, and everything that we have to do. We have fun and enjoy life but that pure elation we have can be fleeting if we realize it at all. Today I dropped my daughter off on a playdate with one of her best friends. The girls were ecstatic to be in each other’s company. Giggling, being loud,…

March 19 – Money, Money, Money

March 19 – Money, Money, Money

Today’s post is about money. We all love money and we all hate money. Having money allows us to do things. No having money prevents us from doing things. I have been on food stamps. I have not known where my next meal is coming from. I’ve had to choose to eat or pay a bill. That is a scary situation. It is even worse when you have a family to provide for. Today we finish our Financial Peace University…

March 12 – Busy Work

March 12 – Busy Work

Today’s lesson is on busy work. I hate busy work. I love to be engaged in active work that impacts people’s lives. Today I spent nearly 3 hours formatting a word document to upload into a quiz for a course I am building. It was irritating me. I get paid way to much to be copying and pasting into a word document and to the learning management system. My time is more valuable than that. I need to be doing the…

March 11 – The Circle of Life

March 11 – The Circle of Life

Today’s lesson is on the circle of life. No, I’m not talking about the awesome song from Disney’s “Lion King”, but rather the ages and stages we all go through and the pain and joy associated with them. Today at worship, we experienced so many of these. The beginning of faith in two young children through baptism, the giving of initial scripture and beginning the practice of worship in our preschool milestone, the public statements of faith for two eight…

February 5 – Platonic Relationships

February 5 – Platonic Relationships

Today’s lesson is about platonic relationships and how valuable they can be. Many know me as very outgoing, willing to strike up a conversation with anyone and everyone. What most don’t know is I have always had a hard time making deep connections with male friends. I have great male acquaintances, but only one male friend who I am 100% myself and open on everything with. He has been in my life longer than most people and always there. This…

January 24 – Time, Time, Time

January 24 – Time, Time, Time

Today’s lesson is on time. I don’t’ have enough time. I have to be here by that time. How much time does it take? When will we be done with it? I have to do a million things and don’t know when I will fit it in. I’m too old for this. I’m too young for this. When I think about time, the song, Time is On My Side comes to mind. Specifically in the movie Fallen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeuRAWSJGFY.  My concern or issue is…
