An Observation

Wheaties and Roman Meal bread toasted with lots of butter. Strong black coffee. Soft quartets singing in the background. Sunday mornings in church. Oreos from THE jar. Long walks, a day at the park, picnics, Slurpee’s and the newspaper. Time spent in the company of someone much older and wiser than myself. Home cooked meal,… Continue reading An Observation

Who But God

Who but God would make ice crystals that sparkled like diamonds in the morning sun. Who but God would make it so that our eyes could capture it but our cameras could not.

A Song to Heaven

Have you ever wondered what from earth reaches Heaven?  What God hears in Heaven?  Does he hear every sound made by us or just our prayers?  What makes him smile, laugh or shake his head and chuckle?   I was thinking about this the other day as I walked about outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh… Continue reading A Song to Heaven

Radical Love

My husband and I began another small group class on marriage.  This is one of many classes, seminars and breakaways we have done since 2012 when we began our ministry to couples and families.  Our hope in doing this is to give them tools we did not have in order to have a Christ centered… Continue reading Radical Love

I will fight

Today I will fight. I will fight fatigue. I will fight boredom. I will fight apathy. I will fight complacency and procrastination. I will fight against the fiery arrows of the wicked one that threatens my faith in the redeemer. I will fight the urge to quit, give in and give up. I will fight for my family, for… Continue reading I will fight

Beach lessons

Our family went on vacation just this past week.  We were in desperate need of a recharge and reconnect.  Our lives had been full of busy since the last time we stopped to go anywhere and we were feeling like weary travelers in a foreign land.  My husband made a recent change in his ministry… Continue reading Beach lessons
