Dysfunctional?

Judges 11 and 12 Why do people relate to reality TV shows so much these days? Whatever happened to The Brady Bunch, Leave it to Beaver, and of course good old Mayberry on The Andy Griffith Show? TV shows use to be focused on families and how things could be. Perhaps people today watch the […]

Powerful Music

Powerful Music

Luke 1:38, 46-55 One of my favorite things of the Christmas season are the songs that are sung; especially those that are explaining the Christmas story. The Gospel of Luke offers the most extensive telling of the Christmas story and in his version, we find a number of those songs.  This demonstrates one thing for […]

Live Life Abundantly

Live Life Abundantly

John 10:10 (NIV) Jesus said, “I have come that they may have LIFE, and that they may have it more ABUNDANTLY”. (John 10:10) This life we are given is both very PRECIOUS and FRAGILE. It has its bumps and bruises, to be sure, and sometimes even its tragedies. But every day that we have to […]

Miss It

Miss It

Psalms 84 Listening to Passenger’s song “When you let her go” the other day touched my soul; especially these few lines – “you only miss things when it’s gone…miss the sun when it snows, you only see the lights they are burning low, You only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low, You only […]

Are You An Elizabeth?

Are You An Elizabeth?

Luke 1:39-45 When reading the story of the Virgin Mary and what is happening in her life at this time, we might wonder at this point in today’s scripture what Mary might be thinking. “Who do I tell?” Who do you tell such news to? Who do you dare voice such a reality to and […]

Do Something Now

Do Something Now

While waiting in a store parking lot with my three children and nieces, I overheard a woman a few parking spaces away on her phone saying her car wouldn’t start and she needed help. I thought to myself, who would help her? Resoundingly, I heard God answer me with the words from Matthew West’s song […]

Mission Accomplished

Mission Accomplished

Matthew 25:21 NIV Recently, a friend of mine lost his spouse and we all thought it was way before her time. Losing a loved one is definitely tough. I know, I have lost many and we always wonder how and why God takes this one or that one. We think, “they were such a good […]

May Not Be Easy

May Not Be Easy

Luke 1:26-38 The account of why we celebrate this time of year is spoken to us in scripture and gets us ready for Christmas. In today’s scripture, we read about an Angel speaking to Mary; this wasn’t just an ordinary human conversation this was a direct message from up high. We have to wonder how […]

How Do We Respond?

How Do We Respond?

Exodus 15:25 Do you ever feel like the impossible lies ahead? Moses did many times when he was leading 2 million Israelites out of slavery! (And we think we have troubles?) But what did he choose to do? He cries out to the Lord and the Lord responds with a simple plan of action. Do […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

A few years ago I had a conversation with my son’s kindergarten teacher during a Thanksgiving classroom party. She shared with me that her favorite holiday was Thanksgiving because it’s one holiday that you don’t buy any gifts.   I never thought of it like that before, but she was right. The PRESENTS we give on […]
