Friday Fun — Do you share your work with your partner or spouse?
I TOTALLY agree~
Friday Fun is a group post from the writers of the NHWN blog. Each week, we’ll pose and answer a different, get-to-know-us question. We hope you’ll join in by providing your answer in the comments.
QUESTION: Do you share your work with your partner or spouse?
Wendy Thomas: I have a *few* select friends with whom I am willing to share a work-in-progress. My WIPs all feel so naked and exposed – they tend to initially be so raw that I can’t bear the thought of my spouse (as much as I love him) making comments or pointing out mistakes. Instead, I share my work with a few other writer friends who’s opinions and skill I wholeheartedly trust. It takes a long time to build up that kind of a relationship, but once you have it, it’s golden.
As far as my other work, well it’s on the internet…

Sermon: Creation Preaches God’s Glory (Psalm 19:1-6)

Creation Preaches God’s Glory
How do we know God? I’ve started with this question because it cuts past all the philosophical arguments or proofs of God’s existence. Every reputable theologian would agree that those arguments fall infinitely short in proving God’s existence anyway and/or explaining what the God, who exists, is like. It’s not that there are no advantages in understanding the teleological argument for God’s existence for example, but I believe that God is not to be dissected and examined by men and placed under a theological microscope but worshipped with joy and loved. It is true we do need to understand who God is and we do this by learning various things about Him, but not from the standpoint of God proving anything to us. To scrutinize whether or not God exists is to begin a study like this on the side of…

Time to Trust
This is a must read!
I open my Bible and read of a time when a vast army came against God’s people. In case we need to know just how large of an army it truly was, Scripture tells us it was an army of 1,000,000 men and 300 chariots (2 Chronicles 14:9, NLT). King Asa deploys his armies and then does exactly what I would have done … he cried. Only he cried out to God, that is ….
“O Lord, no one but you can help the powerless against the mighty! Help us, O Lord our God, for our trust is in you alone.” (2 Chronicles 14:11, NLT)
Some difficulties in life, we are able to handle on our own. Let’s be honest, some are just a no-brainer and a simple response on our part takes care of it.
But then there are times we can so identify with Asa and realize, we…

Time to Trust
I was so blessed to read this. We all should be proud to stand up for what we believe. Our salvation is the one true thing that we came into this world without, but will not leave without. We did not have when we came into this world, but neither man nor his evils can do anything to a Christian to take it from us. Evil at our last breath, if death came to us, if our tongues were cut out of our heads that we never pray again, we still can praise God. If it were a life or death choice, what would you do to serve the Lord?
The Seventh Day of Christmas: Sing a New Song
It’s the seventh day of Christmas and we know what that means: New Year’s Eve is here. It is time for the countdowns, late-night parties, those last minute donations for tax purposes, and, of course, self-improvement resolutions. And, as a shout-out to Oregon Duck fans: today marks the beginning of the countdown for some big football game (or is it a flower show? What is the Rose Bowl, anyway?).
I am not a big New Year’s Eve celebrator, but I do enjoy the rituals associated with welcoming in the New Year. I like that this day stands as a sort of communal reset button, an opportunity to reflect on the old and welcome in the new. These past few days, I have been reflecting on this idea of New Year’s Eve and how it always falls right in the middle of the twelve days of Christmas, a time of…
