How's your Love Life?

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 12, 2010 /

Today, I am a single woman. To be honest, my “relationship status” hasn’t changed drastically over the past twenty years. Actually, it hasn’t changed at all. I’m at that stage in life when everyone around me seems to be dating, engaged, or married. Some days, I feel dreadfully left-out of the fun. “So, how’s your…

Tying a Rainbow

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 11, 2010 /

This isn’t especially profound or lengthy, but here we go! Yesterday, driving through the gorgeous scenery of back-roads Kentucky, God blessed the skies with a rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet all appeared in amazing colors across the Kentucky landscape. My devotional time has been in Genesis the past couple of mornings…

Pursuit of Holiness

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 10, 2010 /

  Before you say it, yes, I am borrowing from the film Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith. First off, let me say, I really enjoyed this movie. I thought the story was a poignant display of the human condition and determination; surprisingly funny at times and wholly uplifting. Of course, I couldn’t resist a…

Beauty of the Skies

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 9, 2010 /

The other week, a storm tore through our area. Nothing too severe, just your standard thunder, lighting, wind, and rain. When I was a little girl, and terrified of the power of nature, my mom would sing our special song during storms to the tune of “Love Lifted Me” it went: God made the rain/…

Bloom where Planted

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 5, 2010 /

Needless to say, my semester abroad in Scotland – and the process of returning home – has shaped many of my new approaches towards life. One lesson I came away with is to “bloom where planted.” Many times, by very insightful people, the metaphor of a flower in a pot has been used to characterize…

Even Mr. Right is Wrong

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 3, 2010 /

This week, I’ve been rereading Elisabeth Elliot’s Passion and Purity. Let me say, I cannot recommend this volume highly enough. What I’ve most appreciated during this read-through is how incredibly aware Mrs. Elliot is that her methods may be 50 years old, but the message is the same and as true as ever. Get yourself…

Spiritual Analogies in 24

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 2, 2010 /

24 July 2010 Here’s the story, I’ve recently become addicted to the show 24! (Late by 8 seasons, I know!) As much fun as it is to watch Jack Bauer scare the living daylights out of evil terrorists, I couldn’t watch without thinking of the great spiritual analogy. Work with me on this one. Jack…

A Little Princess

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 2, 2010 /

14 July 2010 If you’ve had any kind of cultured childhood at all, you should have watched ‘A Little Princess’. Okay, so that was a big generalization, but I would like to write a few comments about this film adaptation of a charming novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. In the story, Sara Crewe is left…

A Different Kind of Toy Story

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 2, 2010 /

02 July 2010 Just last week, my family took a vacation to the gorgeous Carolina Coastline. Our grandparents retired there and we go every year to visit. It’s fantastic! But today, I’d like to comment on a little kernel of truth I gleaned during our stay. My grandmother, you must first understand, is an incredibly…

Cleaning Crud

By Victoria Easter Wilson / August 2, 2010 /

This morning, with rag and soap in hand, I began to clean out the time-built crud from our refrigerator. Working from the ground up, I scrubbed and bubbled until the mangy-mess disappeared. I have to confess, at first I was slightly resentful. “Why am I cleaning this mess? My crazy family is going to make…
