Now, there are some very nice Christian people here in J-land who's journal is not on this list. Simply put, their writings primarily focus on other things. They'll probably find themselves in one of my other categories along the way.
So, indulge me and let me walk you through each of these entries and introduce you. Some will be old friends of yours, I am sure. Others may not. Let's all get acquainted, shall we?
Always bold and never ashamed, Carolyn, keeps tabs on issues in our culture and our world that deal with life and death and the value of humans and human life. Be it abortion, stem cells, cloning or euthanasia she's on top of it at A Matter of Life.
Vee is a warm, sweet lady who is exuberant for Christ! Like me, she's a lamb who had gone astray and she celebrates being back by the Shepherd with some powerful devotional style writings. She truly is a Sold Out Woman!
Tammy almost always leaves you feeling uplifted with her beautiful graphics, the Bible quotes and poems she shares and her own bright personality. No wonder she found it easy to title her journal Friends in HIM.
Who doesn't know Barb? Most every one in J-land has been touched by her prayers, warmth and love at one time or another. At Hey Let's Talk, you can get a shot in the arm to help you face the day and carry on. Her honesty and faith shine through to touch all who venture by. And From Barb's Spiritual Journal is full of meditations, reflections and prayers from her own journey with the Lord.
Penny's past missionary journeys, her life, her children and her own struggles with pain combine with her faith in From Here to There. She's real. You can laugh and cry with her like you would any dear friend.
Hunybea's Open Journal is a look into the life of a young wife, mother, and Christian crusading against abortion. She's not afraid to be herself, warts and all. (Not that she really has warts. It's a country expression maybe.)
Sometimes Cammie simply posts a few verses. Others she introduces you to an evangelist. And sometimes with Truth that smacks you between the eyes. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!!! Hey, this girl is not ashamed!
I have just recently found Wayne. He is actually a minister! He shares his testimony and faith in his words at Marturia.
At I Believe, you'll find Ginger pouring out her heart and soul, as unto the Lord. She is living proof that the Lord walks with us through our trials!
Carolyn has another journal: No Apologies - Biblical perspectives on world events. And that is just what she offers! She's thorough and well thought out in every entry. Recently she has been doing a series on the last days. A real must read!
Simply named, clean and clear is Kristen's self titled journal. She, too, is a fairly new read for me. Her devotional style entries hit the nail on the head.
Gwynn is a talented writer ofthe short story. Her journal Shorts, puts this gift to use for Him and His glory. Good, solid Christian writing here.
Where to spend Eternity. This is another recent find. I don't even know the name of the gentleman to whom it belongs. He has recently been sharing some very interesting information regarding the resurrection. He admits he is not a writer, but a gather and sharer of information.
Don't let the title Faith in Roman Catholicism fool you. Kellen is clearly a young man with a growing relationship with the risen Lord. He may practice the Catholic religion, but his faith rests in Someone higher.
That about sums it all up. Take your time. Mix and mingle. Enjoy each others company.
I covet your prayers for Pete and I tomorrow. We'll be going to UTMB in Galveston in our ever widening search to find out why he feels so miserable so very much of the time.
For any who don't know, the University of Texas Medical Branch is a teaching hospital. Patients can get tests and treatments on a sliding scale based on income.
God bless all who pass this way!
