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.
Repost from 2003
I've been cleaning up my archives over the past week or so, and reading through many of the nearly 2,000 posts on my blog. This one from 2003 was a happy memory -- a post with which I was then and still am particularly pleased. It's been on my mind all morning, so I figured I'd go ahead and post it so it'll stop distracting me:
A Little Ditty I wrote this a few days ago when I was thinking about somebody or other (can't now recall who) that's a little flaky and pondering that such things didn't really matter in the long run and should be borne with much more patience and grace than I usually manage...especially since I'm flaky enough to keep Kellogg's in business for the forseeable future.
We're all a little broken, We're all a little odd, But the foolishest among us May be blest and used by God, So be patient with each brother, with each foible, with each flaw -- If you could see what he's becoming You would look at him with awe. Believe in the beauty of the bride -- Though it may not seem so now, She will soon be glorified.

This bit of advice is a terrific reminder of how we are to relate to those around us (or even those far off but still in contact). Such a wise sage you are!
