Why you need ‘stones of remembrance’

January 31, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

At the great river’s edge, they pause. Waters rage, waves roar and the current’s rushing fast. The vast throng stands, breathless. Pulse-drum thumping in ears, breath catching, they watch. To see. For YAHWEH has given the command, and it’s this: to do the impossible thing. Children fidget, growing restless. They feel the fear. A mother reaches for […]

For the girls I love, “One Man will never let you down”

January 26, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

For days, now, my newsfeed has been buzzing with opinions, thoughts, ideas. On a chilly January day, women descended on Washington in droves, and in our nation’s capital, they marched… You who follow me will know that, for reasons which the Almighty has not seen fit to explain, we’ve been raisin’ boys. Like, four. Around […]

How to fight–and win

January 25, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Dropping in here on this, a firin-busy, just-comin’-off-a-dinner-party kind of a day. Before I went to bed last night, I popped in over on my Facebook account to encourage my friends who were troubled and to ask what Friend Jesus and I could join up and pray about. And I got a message. It was […]

Dear fellow Americans, One flag still waves

January 19, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Dear fellow Americans, Tomorrow, we will inaugurate a new President. With great pomp and ceremony, crowds of us will gather along streets, in offices, in shops, in our homes. We will watch a solemn, but joyful parade; a sweeping motorcade; a gathering of dignitaries there in our nation’s capital. And over it all, our flag […]

For great sex and a marriage that lasts, our “two things”

January 16, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This topic is tough to talk about, tough to write about, and fraught with many emotions. Please understand that I am writing in generalities regarding the genders, acknowledging that there are exceptions to every rule. Thank you in advance for your grace and compassion as I allow myself to be vulnerable with you. Today, I’m […]

Criticism’s not fatal when you’re firm on the Rock

January 13, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

In morning’s brisk air, I pop on in. I’ve just come from some time spent with a friend in a local coffee shop. Mister steps forward to greet me and hands me an envelope with my name. I’ve got mail. I look at the front. Ah, this will be reader mail from a magazine I’d […]

Building bridges to the new generation

January 11, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

He’d not come to me himself. I’d not heard a peep about it; no mention of his distress. He’d slid home late that night after his father and I had turned in, and I’d not seen him. The next day, it got a mention. Not from the party involved, of course. Not from him, for he […]

Called to pray–for Love

January 10, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

A year ago, I had a dream. In the picture, they gathered around, arms reaching. Some hands lifted in supplication, others touching a man. In the center. The one in the middle of the group. And a voice, it rose in prayer… It’s early in the morning. In the darkness, my slumbering mind stirs, awakens. […]

Why you don’t have to fear how the story turns out

January 7, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

In the early morning’s hour, I awaken. Outside, it’s bitter cold, scarce fit for man or beast. Tucked beneath the covers, my body is still, but my mind begins to roam. What is it about the dark? In the blackness, fear-kernels that seem small, benign, can explode like seeds of corn a-poppin’. And all at […]

For peace that will last, it’s His word against yours

January 5, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It came to me today by the lamp’s quiet light. Post holidays, now, a bit of malaise had crept in. This, on the heels of a contentious election. Here in the days approaching inauguration, strident voices still shouted opinions, flung charges, tempers flaring on social media. It was enough to make one’s eardrums bleed. Besides all […]
