Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT) We’ve heard it all before. Lay your burdens at the cross. Hand it over to God, etc. So, we go to the cross and lay our burdens down. We pray that God would take all of our hurts, afflictions, addictions, struggles, etc… We trusted Him to wash us clean. We are weary. […]

We Three Kings

We Three Kings

Matthew 2:1-12 (NIV) Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh – have you ever wondered, was there symbolism of what the three magi brought as gifts to the baby Jesus?  Some scholars and theologians believe in addition to the honor and status implied by the value of the gifts, these three were chosen for their special spiritual symbolism […]

Name tags

Name tags

Philippians 2:3 Have you ever been to those events or meetings where everyone is supposed to wear one of those stick on name tags? It seems kind of silly to me and I thought I understood the reasoning for it.  I researched this subject  a little and  came upon this article “22 compelling reasons why […]

Through the Eyes of A Child

Through the Eyes of A Child

Isaiah 11:6 As a preschool teacher, I have the privilege of watching the joy and excitement on the faces of the children as I tell them the Christmas story.  They listen carefully, hanging on every word, absorbing every detail.  As the story ended, they realized that Jesus didn’t receive any presents on the night he […]

Fa-la-la- la- la- la

Fa-la-la- la- la- la

“Tis the season to be jolly fa-la-la- la- la- la-la-la-la. “ Those were the words heard from the carolers singing to bring Christmas cheer.  Every Christmas season on a cold evening in December, ladies young and old gather from our church to sing Christmas carols.  The people that we visit are shut-ins who don’t get out […]

Precious Moments

Precious Moments

Exodus 32:19, 34:6-7 While reading for Bible study, I remembered the “broken” figurine. One day out of frustration with my sons, I became angry and slammed a closet door. Something so simple as having to repeat, “Put your shoes away!”, had driven me to my wit’s end. Screaming and yelling, I slammed the closet door causing this […]

Dysfunctional?

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 […]
