Facebook is Not Your World

Just like probably everyone else, I have been lamenting and even been angered about what is currently going on in this country. My brain has been crammed full of statistics, news stories, and opinions. Imagine a hoarder’s house overrun with garbage, junk, and newspapers. I am pretty sure that’s what the inside of my head…

Why Take the Risk

Good morning my family!  I hope all is well and everyone is healthy.  I have been thinking a lot about something.  At this point, all we hear about is Coronavirus.  Everyone making sure their hands are clean.  Keeping our distance.  We are going extreme measures to make sure that we protect our homes.  I am…

Parable of Irons

It was quite the gloomy morning as I sat at my desk to begin the workday. I scoured over emails grumbling to myself in disapproval over every aspect of the morning and about how much I was already behind. I quickly dove into a woe is me mentality despite the overflow of blessings in my…

His Love

Absolutely nothing can tear us from His Love.  Sometimes we need a reminder. Just call us Israelites. One more trip around that mountain’ll do us some good, eh?  We are not alone in this. Just might need to hit the pause button to create a break in the midst of our selfish tendencies as humans…

Pruning

Heart & Mind

John 4:24 “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth”.  I think too many people relate worship only to singing, clapping, dancing, etc.  These things ARE a form of worship but I wouldn’t define worship with these things.  I wouldn’t define worship as SINGING.  Or as DANCING.  Those are…

Go to the Ants

A miniature puddle of black shimmer caught my eye as I walked to the road waving goodbye to my in-laws. I felt compelled to investigate further. This was the beginning of a little “God nod” in my direction.   Earlier that day, only a few feet away, we had poured out boiling water over a massive…

God with Us

When we look at a problem and when we focus on the mess, it’s easy to get lost in it. While I was reading my Bible this morning, the seemingly dire situation that we currently find ourselves in came to mind. For just a brief moment, I viewed the situation from the filter that we…
