5 Minute Piano Lessons: C Major Scale for the Right Hand

As a teacher of twenty five students, I highly recommend private lessons.  For those on the go, wishing to learn what they can, this is the place for you. It takes years of study to play the piano correctly.  I will only be touching on the finer points here.  Feel free to post any questions…

Obey Your Parents Except for Abuse

I know I said I would take a break from blogging, but the verse of Ephesians 6:1-3 came to mind.  Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3 “that it may go well with you and that…

Why is God so Vague?

He isn’t. We are just very sinful.  Sin corrupts, distorts, and confuses us so much that at times we give in to it. How do we combat against sin from ourselves or that of others? The bible teaches us right from wrong. For those specific moments that we are unsure of, it also teaches us…

The Shulamite’s Brothers

The Shulamite was betrothed to marry Solomon the great king of Israel. In chapter 1 of Song of Solomon she moves from excitedly asking for kisses to suddenly doubtful in verse 5. 5 I am very dark, but lovely,    O daughters of Jerusalem,like the tents of Kedar,    like the curtains of Solomon.6 Do not gaze at me because I…

The Romance of Boaz and Ruth

This will be my last post for a while. I hadn’t written on my blog in over a year. It turns out I’d had a lot to say! Starting in September 26th I wrote a post almost every day. For the past 35 days I’ve written 33 posts (including this one). Each post was on…

The Strange Romance of Jacob and Rachel

Poor Leah. She really didn’t have much of a choice with things. But, we’ll get to that. After Jacob stole his brother’s blessing, Isaac commanded him to leave Canaan and search for a wife. The reasoning was the same as Abraham’s. It’s just interesting that Isaac didn’t send a servant to find his son a…

The story of Isaac and Rebekah Continues

Before we get to the romance of Jacob and Rachel… and Leah, we need to understand the situation that set all of this up. From my last post, it appears that Isaac and Rebekah are destined to live happily ever after. Well, the fairy tale part of their marriage is about to be over. Chapter…

The Romance of Isaac and Rebekah

Genesis 24: Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years. And the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh, 3 that I may make you swear by the Lord,…

The “Romance” of Abraham and Sarah

As we explore the romantic relationships of the bible I want you to keep this in mind: What are the little foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) or problems in their marriage? Did they respond by resting or trusting in the Lord? (Spoiler alert… no) How did God respond to their sins of mistrust? Adam and…

Love Practical

The story of Troy is high in drama and excitement. Imagine a war fought over the love of a man and a woman! What passion! What wonder! What stupidity! It is a fun tale to say over the campfire. Who knows the real story behind it all. Maybe Helen had a role to play but…
