July 11 – Is Anybody Out There?

3:193 – Is Anybody out there? #faithbites #faithjourney anybody Setting Do you ever wonder if anyone is listening to you when you speak or post on social media? Are you like me looking for the like or the comment? Sometimes when I comment or even when I write #faithbites, I wonder if anybody is out there. I know people tell […]

July 1 – Are You Feeling A Little Wonky?

July 1 – Are You Feeling A Little Wonky?

3:183 – Are You Feeling A Little Wonky? #faithbites #faithjourney wonky The word “Wonky” has been in my head last since last nice as in “I’m feeling a little wonky”. If you aren’t familiar with the term, it originates from England and as an adjective means unsteady, shaky, awry, wrong. If you want a funny story, you can read the […]

June 25 – Let Them Eat Cake

3:177 – Let Them Eat Cake #faithbites #faithjourney cake Setting This morning while running errands, I ran into an old friend and his daughter who now live out of state.

June 20 – One More Time With Feeling

June 20 – One More Time With Feeling

3:170 – One More Time With Feeling #faithbites #faithjourney feeling I’m sitting here listening to my youngest playing with the dog as the rain and storms roll in.

May 11 – It’s A Conspiracy

May 11 – It’s A Conspiracy

3:132 – It’s a Conspiracy #faithbites #faithjourney conspiracy Sometimes when I think about what to write in #faithbites, I just google a term. Today I googled “scripture conspiracy theory” and found not only crazy theories about the Bible, but one scripture that specifically calls out conspiracy theories: Isaiah 8:12. These theories why they seem crazy to some of us, give […]

May 3 – No Internet! Send Help!

3:124 – No Internet! Send Help! #faithbites #faithjourney Internet It’s been close to 36 hours without internet in the house. No tablets, no streaming music, no Alexa turning on the fan, no nothing. The natives are getting restless. (Yes, we have it in our phones but it’s not the same). Dad, there is nothing to do. After I suggest toys, […]

Apr 14 – Just Hang In There

3:105 – Just Hang In There #faithbites #faithjourney hang Some days you just need to hang in there. For instance, I tried to do a video #faithbite and it was constantly interrupted by the dog, the kids, the video, everything. But it is what it is. It reinforced the need for this #faithbites. I was reading a post from a […]

3:103 – Empty is Good #faithbites #faithjourney #holyweek #easter #emptytomb empty Happy Easter, Everybody. He is Risen. He is Risen, Indeed. Alleluia In our life, empty is usually a bad thing. The gas tank is empty. The fridge is empty. My bank account is empty. The toliet paper roll is empty. (Sorry, a little COVID-19 joke). We don’t like empty, […]

Apr 10 – Why Is It Called “Good” Friday?

Apr 10 – Why Is It Called “Good” Friday?

3:101 – Why Is It Called “Good” Friday? #faithbites #faithjourney #holyweek good Some things in the English language are hard to understand. One that struck me was that we should fear god. It wasn’t until just recently that I found out that this fear was adoration, not being scared. It completely changes the meaning of the phrase. Likewise, I never […]
