A Poser....

of the question kind not of the pretending to be something you aren't type.  

I have been blessed with long-living grandparents.  I still have three out of four on the planet and have spent so much time with all of them it seems strange that I have not made this observation before.

One of my grandmothers is prejudice and judgemental and seldom has a good word for anyone.  One is accepting and kind and has trouble asking for help even when she really needs it.  Now the question is...which one do you think is in church every Sunday that she is able?  Its door number two.  Why is that?  Is it a lack in the church's teaching?  Is it "calling Me Lord, and knowing me not"?  

In all honesty, the two people in my life who are most loving and unselfish are NOT church goers.  Grandma P and Mom don't profess any sort of belief and yet they are examples of what Jesus calls us to be.  I need help understanding.

Is it Possible.... link?  Here is a sweet little column for Mother's Day.

However I think I may have missed Dorcas's point.  My favorite part of the whole article is her by-line. 

"Dorcas Smucker is a homemaker and mother of six. She can be reached at"  

She is one of my favorite authors and still she describes herself as a homemaker.  She does all kinds of interesting things and writes truth to salve the soul but her claim to fame is making a home for her family. I love that.
