Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Any Sign of Sanctification Continues to Startle Me
The other day, as I was gearing up for a marathon baking session, I managed to smash a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. This is the sort of thing that, in less holy moments, would be precursor to a meltdown. (The period after the meltdown would be post-curser.) But this time I thanked God for the 1- and 8-cup Pyrex measuring cups I still have, noting particularly that they were far more than I deserved, and swept up the broken glass. Brethren and sistern, I assure you that I have not, in my own strength, got that much self-control and contentment. I think maybe that cup broke because the measure of the Lord's kindness -- pressed down, shaken together, and running over -- was simply more than a pint-size vessel could bear!
