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.
An Arrested Nosedive
"...there is not a temper, a look, a word, a movement, the most important action of the day, the smallest relative duty, in which we do not either deface or adorn the image of our Lord, and the profession of his name." (Charles Bridges in his Commentary on Proverbs)
Reading this on Nancy Wilson's blog near the end of a particularly trying work day, one in which there seemed to be inordinately more defacing than adorning going on in my attitude, I was on the brink of plunging into an introspective slough when it occurred to me, "Aha! this is another moment of minute obligation when I can choose His way or mine!" So I backed off the diving board, repented my way down the ladder, and rather instantly found myself in a better frame of mind than I'd been in all day.
