Yeshua's Arrival

The Memory Room

This past summer, at a social gathering, someone asked me if I miss my country of origin. Not really, I thought, but I do miss my grandparents’ house, I replied to the question. I miss my childhood and my family’s get-togethers and everyone congregating in the “kitchen house”,… Read full post »

Purchasing Emotions

My favorite place to take a vacation would be Europe, specifically, Italy, France, and England. Perhaps I am a little biased since I am from Europe, and I miss it so much. I love my life where I live now, but at a certain undisclosed age (mine), life strolls along in… Read full post »

WHY

This post is dedicated to the victims from Boston’s marathon, and to the victims from Sandy Hook Elementary.

 

My heart is gravid with anger and my spirit laden with anguish. How could this much torment and sorrow come into our lives again…Why did the innocent children have to die at… Read full post »

I Don't Feel Like It

A few Sundays ago I simply did not feel like going to church. Three months have passed since I had a car accident and I still felt governed by my back pain which was constant, annoying and gnawing at my soul. I felt a little depressed and frustrated that I wasn’t… Read full post »

Little Travelling Bible

 

Growing up, I simply believed that everyone in my family believed in God, and accepted Jesus as their personal savior. There was four of us, girl cousins, as our parents lived Christian lives, prayed before meals, knelt in church, and evoked God’s will in most conversations. As young chi… Read full post »

Surprised by God

This past May the children and I visited my birth country of Romania. I had not been back in twelve years and the kids had not yet met my aging family, as everyone is getting older…The opportunity presented itself and I was excited to go, as I was deeply longing and… Read full post »

The Story of us...

Right before Christmas we went to visit a nursing home. The kids were so excited to finally pass out their home made cards to these sweet and elderly residents. As we walked the heated hallways, smelling the aroma of mashed potatoes from the dining room, and watching the feeble bodies lying… Read full post »

It seems that every generation considers itself the one that will witness the world coming to its end. But this time, a lot of people around me are actually considering and expecting it to end in December of this year. Apparently, the ancient Mayan calendar predicts or rather suggests the world… Read full post »

Wasted Love

It is not easy for me to pray out loud for people. I grew up in an Orthodox Christian family, where praying was done always on our knees, mostly at night before going to bed, and undoubtedly at church, but solemnly and solitarily with our eyes closed quietly whispering to God… Read full post »

From Father to Father

“ So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long distance away, his father saw him coming. Filled with love, and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him” Luke 15:11

This is the biblical story of the prodigal son returning home after… Read full post »

You Can't Top Freedom

Political rhetoric has never been one of my comfortable areas of disscusion. I grew up in former communist Romania deprived of many rights, and indoctrinated by my government into believing that a communist country is the best regime to live in. Our former leader governed Romania, self -imposed, &nbs… Read full post »

The Year Of The Warrior

This blog is for all parents enduring with sick children.

To endure is to go through something painful and difficult, but with patient suffering, without giving way. I rarely think myself as the enduring kind, due to the fact that I oppose and fear challenging situations. I somehow feel thwarted in… Read full post »

Vegan Is Love?

 " Vegan Is Love" is the title of newly released and highly controversial children's book written by Ruby Roth. While the cover of the book illustrates happy animals suggesting a cheerful read, the content it's far more alarming. The author is basically condemning the eating of any meat, and con… Read full post »

Demented Love

" Take your son, your only son-yes Isaac, whom you love so much....Sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will point to you." Genesis 22:1. This is what God told Abraham to do with his beloved son Isaac. I often ask myself how willing would… Read full post »

Human and divine

Why didn't God send his son  to earth in a obvious, sensational, spectacular way? Why didn't he just descent Jesus from heaven upon us and clearly shout for all to hear and  see " I am God, this is my son so believe in him. He is the sacrifice for your sins, so… Read full post »

Transient And Perishable

Mrs. Irene...She was my elderly neighbour three doors down from me, never got to know her, and now she has passed away. My only memories are,  her walking with small frail steps to her mailbox and back, and watching her drive gingerly down the street. She didn't have any children, her… Read full post »

Week Four-Being Helpful

Day one.

" It's A Wonderful Life", with James Stewart, is my favorite movie. I can watch it at Christmas, or in the middle of summer, and it has the same profound impact on me: helping others gives purpose to our lives. In the movie, George Bailey's father, Peter, has a… Read full post »

Tha fact is that we all complain, every day, in different ways, for different reasons. It's part of our sinful state, it comes naturally, it's just woven in the "fabric" of our flesh.  We can gripe about trivial endless matters like, " I hate my hair, this person drives too slow,… Read full post »

Welcome to week two- the no gossiping or being judgemental week. I am fully aware of how difficult this may be to achieve, since we are "wired" in our fallen state to comment on other people's lives. The great writer C.S Lewis said this " All mortals tend to turn into… Read full post »

Ode To Joy

This is what happens when you haven't seen your extended family in over three years: you drive forty hours with 2 kids to Vancouver, Canada for Christmas holidays. That's right, we drove forty hours to Canada, and forty hours back to Nashville. It wasn't so bad on the way there; we… Read full post »

Thanksgiving holiday is upon  us yet again. Houses will be filled with preparations of delicious foods, scrumptious desserts, and a succulent turkey. With all the family coming over we may have braced anticipation of a certain family member that we've had long standing issues… Read full post »
