Ash Wednesday & the Beginning of Lent

Posted by Hallee on Mar 9, 2011 in Christian Faith, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, holiness, inspiration, Life

Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.

Love, Compassion & Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

I was at my parents’ house this weekend, along with my youngest brother and his family and my sister and her family. After church on Sunday, there was a rush to the kitchen to get children fed – all seven of my parents’ grandchildren, four of whom are under the age of four. PB&J’s, hot dogs, tortillas and melted cheese — we quickly had seven hungry children sitting at the table to eat. Then it was the adults’ turn. I dug around my mother’s fridge and came up with a container of pimento cheese.

Posted by Hallee on Mar 7, 2011 in Causes, Christian Faith, fellowship, inspiration, Life, missions, Prayer

Lisa Voveris won our annual Missions Giveaway last week.  Her mission is “Feeding the Homeless for Jesus,” a ministry that she runs out of her own kitchen. Outside one winter, she was so cold that her legs were hurting.  She started thinking about the homeless people who live in tents in her city of Taunton, […]

Posted by Gregg on Jan 16, 2011 in apologetics, Blog Stuff, Creation

The bottom line is this. This is my wife’s blog, not mine. This is her house. Her blog even has a mission statement.

Thankful

Posted by Hallee on Nov 25, 2010 in Christian Faith, Family, Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, Life, Love, Marriage, Parenting

Last year at this time, Gregg and I were saying that it would be the last Thanksgiving we would be apart. And here we are this year, apart, determined that this will be the last one. God has been gracious and an amazing provider in this time of economic hardship on our country, and we are thankful for the job he has, for the income that he has, and for the continued contracts that come his way while there is nothing much out there otherwise. So while a part of me wants to feel down in the dumps for missing him, I try very hard to stay thankful. Ephesians 5:20 says: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Sound Bite Culture

There’s a woman I know who is young – maybe 21-years-old or even younger. She has three children by three men and has never been married. She lives with her mother. Her current boyfriend does not live with her, but he does spend the night often. She gambles regularly. And, she is deeply spiritual. You won’t find someone who talks about Jesus Christ more than her.

Personal Thoughts on the Meanings of Easter

Posted by Gregg on Apr 4, 2010 in Christian Faith, Family, Parenting

This Easter Sunday, I will divert from the Creation debate to share with you 1) why I think that spiritual recoil had such an impact on our household, and 2) what I think we are going to do as the spiritual leaders of our family for ministry as a result.

Giving God the Effort

Posted by Hallee on Sep 13, 2009 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, holiness, Prayer

I believe God loves the effort of more for Him. I think He wants us to make worship for Him special, remarkable, beautiful, ceremonial. If we can do that without becoming legalistic, if we keep the focus on how we’re worshiping the Alpha and Omega, our Savior, Messiah, Redeemer, and friend, then the effort ought to be nothing but pleasing to God.
