“X” – A to Z Challenge


I find that “x” is the most difficult letter to write about during this A to Z Challenge. I use words that begin with “q” or “z”…maybe not every day, but there are common words that begin with these letters. Not so with the letter “x.”


xFor instance, when was the last time you had a conversation about Xerxes? Or when did you last use the word xi in a sentence? Or when was the last time you Xeroxed something? Not so common.


I will admit that I think of Xenia more often. That’s where my son and his family live. And I might be more apt to read about Xanthan Gum or Xylitol as I read an ingredient label. But do I really know what these ingredients are? No.


So you see, “x” is a toughy. So now that I have the challenge out of the way (I wrote about the letter “x”), I can now write about something that is closer to my heart.


I’m heading to our final gathering of Women’s Bible Connection today. There will be a beautiful banquet awaiting these ladies and we will enjoy one another’s company during this spring brunch. I will miss the time spent with these ladies each week. But will embrace the friendships and bonds that have been created through these months of Bible study together. Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV) reminds us to “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Thank you for your encouragement and “spurring.” It’s been a blessing.


This weekend at Rocky is our annual Baptism Celebration. I am so blessed when these services come around. We have a large group of folks who have already signed up for this service. I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for Rocky on this exciting day.


Another exciting day coming our way is Mother’s Day. We have a guest speaker coming to share with us. Elisa Morgan, was CEO of MOPS International for over two decades and has written more than 25 books on mothering, spiritual formation and evangelism. Elisa co-costs a daily radio program (Discover the Word) and is a dynamic speaker. I can’t wait to hear this special Mother’s Day message at Rocky.


Finally, I am looking forward to a trip to Phoenix next week to re-connect with Senior Administrative Assistants all across the US. I learned a lot last year and met so many wonderful ladies…I’m sure it will a huge blessing to me again this year.


So there you have it. Some of the things that are close to my heart this morning. If you can come up with a word that begins with the letter “x” that you use in your day-to-day living, I’d love to hear about it! For that matter, I’d love to hear from you about anything you’re thinking about. Why not drop me a line?


Until tomorrow and the letter “y”, have a blessed day!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
