Proverbs for Fall

There have been times in my life that I've hungered for the lessons of Proverbs. 

Oh, there's been times I've rebelled against them too, but usually I see the logic and can rest in the wisdom of Solomon.

Life is crazy around the world, but the lessons of Proverbs don't change. No matter what the times, trends or culture say, these things hold true. 

Repetition is the best way to learn something, so I'm going to embark on the knowledge held within the pages of Proverbs from now until the end of the year. I've invited a few friends to join me in both reading and writing about whatever wisdom it is that they might find. 

So starting tomorrow, there will be words here at the Kitchen Table on Proverbs. Sometimes they may be mine, and sometimes they will be someone else's voice. I may agree or not agree, but I promise you that these people all love Jesus and are looking heavenward. They may be learning something that relates to you, or to your children, or your grandparents - for those I've invited are all in different ages and stages of life. Some posts will be short, some longer. Some may be a glimpse of a verse, some may be directed towards a whole chapter. Some days I may post 2 or 3 devotions, and some days we may be silent. No matter what is being said (or not said) we invite you to journey with us. Come along and read in Proverbs with us the next few months!

We start on September 1 and will go through the month of December, finishing out the year. I hope that you'll read along with us and share your comments here or on Facebook, at Marina's Kitchen Table

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
