God is Better than Google

Did you know there are 11.944 billion Google searches performed every month? Just think about that for a second. In that second that just passed there were 4,545 searches…and each second that passes…it doesn’t stop…and it’s growing!! We ask Google every question you can imagine. And so many more that we can’t imagine. From the good (new and expecting parents’ searches increase by 2.7%!) to the questionable (Ever looked at the auto-complete suggestions…who’s searching for THAT??), people are unafraid of […]

Seasons Don’t Stay the Same

Everybody loves to love Fall. Me included. It makes it even more romantic to call it Autumn like my British friends. It’s beautiful and cozy and who doesn’t love all things pumpkin? Sign me up. As a matter of fact could I just snapshot a beautiful Fall day in New York City: clear, blue sky, temps in the upper 50s/lower 60s, Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. How many people have I heard say, “I wish everyday was like this!” But, […]

That’s not your focus. Just be the light. Shine His light. Go public!   Here’s […]

Makes Our Hearts Sing

“It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough.  That it’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.” – Steve Jobs at the iPad 2 event 3-2-11 It struck me that he used the phrase “makes our hearts sing.”  This is such spiritual language.  This is, I believe, the cry of the human heart.  That there would be a song in our heart.  It’s even interesting that […]

Oh the Wisdom

It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. 1 Kings 3:10 I want what I ask of God to please Him.  I just want to please Him. I started reading 1 Samuel a couple of weeks ago and have just kept going because the stories are so good.  I’ve made it to Solomon (1 Kings) now and I know there are some major failings coming up, but the beginning of his reign over Israel is unparalleled.  Such promise.  Such […]
