“When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes,Continue reading “Keep the Faith!”

Trash Day!

In my household of mostly men, the responsibility lies on them to take out the trash. Unfortunately, I am the only one with a nose sensitive enough to detect whatever is rotting before anyone else does. I am very aware that if the trash is not taken out, the entire house will stink very soon.Continue reading “Trash Day!”

Closed for Renovations

 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”  1 Corinthians 3:16 The passage of time, storms, and decay will take a toll on nearly every structure man can build.  Even as temples of God, we are no different.

Peace and Joy!

 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” John 14:27 NKJV Jesus came not just as our Savior, but that we may have peace now on this earth. It is amazing howContinue reading “Peace and Joy!”

Soar!

Unlike this butterfly struggling against the breeze, I spotted a hawk soaring high on those same winds. Hawks trust the breezes to lift them higher. No GPS or google maps, they just stretch their wings and go! The higher we want to go, the more we must trust God to take us there. Small things weContinue reading “Soar!”

P is for Praise!

The book of Psalms is full of songs that praise our God. This emphasis on “praise”Continue reading “P is for Praise!”
