Red Letters

I listen to Christian radio all day long. It’s such an inspiration, hearing the messages of Jesus Christ through music. One of my new favorites is “The Red Letters”. Oh my gosh! The first time I heard the words, the tears started streaming down my face. It describes how before we invited Jesus into our […]

Never Give Up

If you are a parent of adult children, you know all too well how hard it is to sit back and watch them make mistakes, make the wrong choices and maybe head down the wrong road. Not long ago, my son was struggling with marital issues. It was extremely difficult for me not to take […]

Worthless Facts

This is one of those worthless facts you learn through life. Did you know when you catch crawdads (crayfish) you don’t have to put a lid on the bucket? That’s because every time one tries to get out, the others pull him back down. This reminds me of how destructive it is to just worry […]

Your Part?

What is Your contribution to the “Kingdom of God”? Maybe you have a special talent or gift that you share to the world. Maybe you sing in the choir, maybe you give generously to local charities or maybe you just have a listening ear. Wherever you are in your life, rich, just getting by, busy […]



Sometimes it is hard to hear the truth. We dont want to be corrected in our thinking or told what we have seen or told was a lie. We don’t want to admit we are wrong. Some, either consciously or subconsciously, totally shut down and ignore the truth. 2 Timothy 4:3 tells us, “For a […]

Clear Picture

I’m revealing my age here but does anyone remember the “One Step” camera back in the 70’s? The idea of it was that you snap a picture, the picture comes out instantly and you waited a little while for the picture to become crystal clear. Looking at it as a life lesson, things can happen in […]

Your Needs

Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas this year? I, for one, have a pretty big “want” list. I used to joke and post my list on the refrigerator for all to see. In truth, we all have wants; like a better car, maybe new furniture and it’s ok to desire more and better […]

Keep the Spirit

By now, we have taken down our Christmas trees, packed away the decorations and have finally eaten all the leftovers from all the Holiday feasts. Most of us are back to school and work and are settling into our normal routines. One thing I hope we all can keep alive and well is the hope […]

A Challenge

Well Happy New Year! I pray you had a great holiday season. With this new year upon us, so come resolutions. I personally do better at challenges then resolutions; I guess it is all in how you perceive things. I would like to challenge you this year. Well, I’m not challenging you, but God is! Malachi 3:10 says, “Bring the whole tithe […]

Mixed Bag

The New Year can often bring a mixed bag of emotions and memories for many of us. Some may have just experienced the best year ever and look forward to an even greater one looming ahead. Others may have just trudged through one deep struggle after another. The fresh calendar year brings desperate hope for […]
