Don’t Discount Your Potential

Another Fearless Year

They were a motley collection of misfits. A tiny purple alyssum and a scraggly white alyssum. Two mini daisies. A wee snapdragon with a single bloom. Each had volunteered in various annual pots left on our deck over the winter. As spring sprung, so did these tenacious sprouts.

We wanted to plant new, healthy flowers in the old pots. But I couldn’t bear to toss my little band of misfits. Somehow I knew they held such promise. They were of hearty stock, small though they were. So I replanted them all in what I dubbed my planter of misfits.

Kind of pitiful, isn’t it? Still, this silly planter grew dear to my heart.

Jesus’s Band of Misfits

The disciples that Jesus called to follow him were a lot like the sprouts in this planter. They were a motley collection of misfits. A few fishermen. A tax collector. A zealot and…

A Beautiful Song

A  couple of songs for a friend who is moved by nature’s solitude and beauty.

Serenaded Softly

Scripture reference;

“8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.” Psalm 145:8-10 KJV

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10 KJV

I was listening to this beautiful song and was moved to share it here.

A Loving Pursuit: (Part 1: In The Beginning)

Moore to Ponder

Scripture reference;

 8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool[c] of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”[d] 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.” 11 He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”14 The Lord God said to the serpent,“Because you have done…

Scripture reference;

“23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalm 136:23-26 KJV

Daily I long to know the Lord better and to think, speak, and do what is right.

Daily I succeed a little.

Daily I still fail a lot.

Daily I am persuaded that the Lord still loves me and will never fail me.

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.” 1 John 3:2-3 ESV

What is the value of taking a linguistic class in college if you are not a linguistic major?

I thought this blog post would benefit seminary students and homeschool students who are thinking about college.

The Broad Spectrum Life

It makes a better learner – and a better person – in many ways. You use language to learn everything. You don’t take university English (in the U.S.) to learn to read and write, you take it to enhance your abilities of English language comprehension, thought processing, and communication. A linguistic class is a socially scientific philosophy course for languages, a space for exercises of abstract thinking, and a way to improve your understanding of others. It’s far more than just a reading, writing, history, or language course.

A proper linguistics course clarifies why, where, when, and how language works. Thusly, it changes the mundane or granted aspects of language toward appreciation through revealing language’s complexity, both through time and across culture. You’re made to realize the cognition involved, the evolutionary and developmental steps, the diversity across societies, how it greatly influences worldview and culture, and how it’s pretty amazing…
