Is Jesus God?


Recently someone asked me if Jesus was God.

“Yes. He’s the third part of the trinity. He’s God with skin on. God with a face.”
“I don’t understand that trinity stuff,” she said.

Looking down into my lap and prayed the Lord to show me how to answer her. My hands rested there with the verigated yarn I was knitting on three needles.

Suddenly, I had the answer. “The trinity is like this piece of knitting. It’s all one piece, but it looks different depending on which side you look at.

A Thanksgiving Conversation

thanksgiving dinner

This past Thanksgiving I had a quiet moment, one-on-one, with my fifth-grade grandson before everyone descended for dinner. He transferred this year from a private Christian school to public.

“How do you like your new school?” I asked as I stirred the gravy.

“I like some classes, but some of my teachers take the Lord’s name in vain every day.”

“Really. That’s strange.”

“Some of the kids there have some really wacky ideas. At lunch the other day one girl told me in another life I used to be a tree. I told her I wasn’t.”

“Well, honey, I don’t think it’s any mistake God saw to it that you went to public school this year. I think you’re there to plant some seeds for Jesus.”

“You think so, Grandma?”

“I know so!”

Note from a Fan


As a witer, I don’t get feedback like a performer does. It’s always a joy to hear from one of my readers. A couple of weeks ago I received this from a lady who read the first of the series God’s Little Miracle Book.

“I’ve had your “God’s Little Miracle Book” a while. It’s amazing! I had a hard time putting it down to make dinner. But, reading the rest brought me to tears, laughter, ‘praise God,’ prayer and feeling Jesus was with me. I’m going to order several more of your books. This first book has helped me hang on and trust Jesus, knowing I have Alzheimer’s. God bless you!”

It’s such a blessing to know that even one person received encouragement from those hours at the keyboard. To God be the glory!

open Bible

We are in the season of Thanksgiving—we are reminded to be grateful for the good and the bad. Sometimes it’s hard for us to see God’s good in a situation but that’s because we’re in the midst of it. We can’t see the situation from His perspective. We don’t know the good He is working out through these situations.

It’s times like these that people think God has abandoned us, that He doesn’t care, that He’s forgotten our name. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We need to remember the times we are in. 2 Timothy 3 tells us, “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these.”

In these treacherous days we need to hold fast to the truth of the Word of God. To “continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of” according to 2 Timothy 3:15, because “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness,” according to 2 Timothy 3:16.

Let us take this moment to stop and be grateful to God for His gifts to us. All of them.
