The Problem of Pain

by Edie Wadsworth on December 31, 2010

from C.S. Lewis’ The Problem of Pain–chapter 6 “The human spirit will not even begin to surrender self-will as long as all seems to be well with it. Now error and sin both have this property, that the deeper they are, the less their victim suspects their existence; they are masked evil. Pain is unmasked […]

The God of Promise

by Edie Wadsworth on December 29, 2010

On a Sunday….. we sat listening to our Pastor finish a 12 week study on Job. His final words were: “God doesn’t give explanations, He gives promises.”  I couldn’t stop thinking about the truth of those words. Caiti and Cody decided to come spend the night. We shared Christmas fun all day. We made the […]

Send Some Rain

by Edie Wadsworth on December 28, 2010

Mercy Made Flesh

by Edie Wadsworth on December 25, 2010

Until I can find my words, my friends Denise and Julie and Patty have written about our tragic loss. By the gracious mercy of God, our family survived without so much as an injury.  I can’t stop thanking him for preserving the lives of our children. We rejoice with you today at the Word made […]

Santa Claus Theology

by Edie Wadsworth on December 20, 2010

I doubt there’s one of us left who escapes it. It’s our natural theology. “He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice” haunts us from the time we’re old enough to talk and we fear that our nice hasn’t been nice enough. The sad truth is, it hasn’t. By December 24th, I’ve committed enough sin […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Edie Wadsworth on December 9, 2010

hulk cookies

I never intended to make superhero cookies. But after I dipped my lovely shortbread wonders into the chocolate coating, they looked EX.ACT.LY like the hulk.   It took me back to 1977, the year of my first perm and my first pair of Trax,   when my brother would let me tag along with him […]

As the cold weather sets in, the dogs are in the house more and more.   Hank is our 2 year old English Golden Retriever.  And he is unequivocally the stinkiest dog in all the free world.   Even if he’s just been to the *spa*,  two hours later—-stinky. I’ve resorted to dousing him with […]
