Peace and Good


God’s grace be with you all.  1 Timothy 6:21b


Thank you so much for joining me in reflecting on God’s word. It has been a privilege and a joy to share my thoughts on Scripture with you.


Although this website is coming to an end, I hope you’ll visit my new author website:


Thanks again for sharing this journey with me.  May God’s grace be with you all.


Peace and good.

    Barb this site will be greatly missed. I’ve been blessed very much by your reflections as well as your encouragement. I still often recall the message in the post “Paradox” (amongst others) for myself, and often paraphrase the essence of it with others. May God bless your new site and continue to use you to bless others. I look forward to following your new website. God bless!

New Release!

Your Faith Has Made You Well: Jesus Heals in the New Testament explores what happened when Jesus healed, what it might have been like for the people involved, and what it means for us today.

Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroes” takes a down to earth look at the diverse assortment of biblical characters called by God.


But Jesus answered “The scripture says, ‘Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’” (Matthew 4:4)


All Bible quotes are from the Good News Translation unless otherwise noted.


It is reassuring that Jesus called fishermen and tax collectors to be his followers. These were laymen, not Scripture experts. It is wise to seek guidance from religious scholars and clergy who have studied Scripture to avoid errors in interpretation. But the Bible is also a gift given to each of us, to use as a basis for prayer and meditation.


I’m not a Biblical scholar; I’m an expert only on my own experience. Following the Scripture passage is a brief meditation along with a question or two as a springboard for your own reflections. Please feel free to share your own thoughts or insights on the passage by adding a comment. All comments are moderated, so please allow some time for your comment to be posted.
