It is no secret that my favorite passage in the bible is Matthew 4: 1-11. To me it’s good versus evil, up close and personal. On one side the devil incarnate; on the other Jesus the Christ. When I read this I am reminded that God’s plan is pretty precise and more than obvious to those willing to seek Him first. After 40 days of fasting in the desert, Satan offers Christ “all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.” We should all give pause and realize the power the devil has to tempt each and every one of us as we go about our daily lives, essentially on his turf.

Last week, I had to make one of the most difficult announcements of my life—I told my family that I liked women, err, love women.  Not knowing how my mother would react, I was relieved when she looked at me and said, “Boy, I knew that all along.”

TerrieI stumbled on a lump in my breast December 2009. My first thought was of my Grandmother Cardelia and how she struggled for a year and then died. I wanted to run and ignore it. I was so afraid. Cancer was such a big word and I did not know much about what it would do. All I knew is that it was out to take my life. I had been married for 18 years and we had a three year old. How could I leave them?

TerrieEvery now and then, more now than then, I fall into the trap that lets me know my faith walk needs work. I do realize that I am in a constant state of effort and often come up short in what I believe should be a sincere attempt to “do it right.”
