Word Wednesday!


The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You’ve got to love both.

Friendly Fire


We all know what friendly fire is.

What is it with me and making sweeping, generalized statements?

For those that dont know what the concept refers to, its basically a phrase used in warfare when one accidentally shoots someone on their own side.

Unfortunately, Im sure a bullet doesnt feel any less painful when the person pulling the trigger is your bff.

Infact, friendly fire is always more tragic because the victim almost never stood a chance. Because he is caught off guard.

Ps, I Love You


Connected last Friday was a lot of fun. If you missed it- why do you keep doing this to yourself? Lol.

I wont go into the specifics of what we talked about but at some point we talked about how DIFFICULT it is to say the three magic words first: I Love You.

Lets even scale it down: “I Like You” is also one earth shattering phrase. Particularly if you are female.

Sounds like an oxymoron, dont it?

We all know love is supposed to be vulnerable and ‘soft’. That’s when you are referring to romantic love. In the early stages.

Love for your 5 year married, never-putting-away-his-clothes, husband might be slightly different. And of course, love for your siblings is a different animal, particularly when you were kids and teenagers.

Anyway there concept of being tough, while loving sounds like opposites.

But let us take a very slightly different turn. Instead of talking about being firm with those we love, what about those times that it is TOTALLY difficult/impossible to love those people we are supposed to love.
