Filling the Vacuum

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) I’ve been reading about the life of Terrence Steven McQueen – world-acclaimed movie star … macho man, king of...

A Steward of Life

I know what it’s like to lose someone suddenly, unexpectedly.  It’s a pain that never completely fades away.  Two years ago, a favorite journalist of mine, Mary Katharine Ham, lost her husband in an instant.  In her own eloquent style, she shares her story here. When...

A Farmer’s Faith

For the past several weeks I’ve been sharing tidbits about in small town America.  I now know what a herd of cattle is and I’ve learned that the beef I’ve been eating all my life comes from a live cow (not directly from the plastic wrap at the stores).  I’m learning a...

Are You A Life Advocate?

I’ve received a number of inquiries since our move to the country whether I’m still a life advocate providing a voice for pro-life work.  The answer is definitely YES.  In my younger days, I supported abortion rights, but it was not because I believed in abortion.  It...

Meet the Hummers

I’ve become acquainted with quite a few new things since moving to the country. One is a little family — father, mother and daughter – the Hummers. They are always happy, always quick, and always eating. They are Horatio, Hortense, and little Hilda (Hummingbird)...

When It’s Time

The alarm went off as families scrambled to start another day. Not a hint of a cloud in the sky – this Tuesday promised to be a perfect fall day with cloudless blue skies and crisp, fall air. Parents stumbled out the door, dropping kids off at school, stopping for a...

What In The World?

This morning I’m sitting on my porch watching cows and calves graze the pasture, a horse trying to push his weight around, a family of ducks softly land on the pond, and the whir of hummingbirds buzzing around (Horatio, Hortense and little Hilda Hummingbird). Today...

Love Thy Neighbor

I talk a lot about the storms of life. We all face them, be they relationships, loss, financial, or acts of nature. However, the images of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation has brought new meaning to the word “storm.” With each photo and personal story, my heart aches....

Roots

In my much younger days (decades ago), I fell in love with the blockbuster TV miniseries, “Roots,” an adaptation of the 1976 novel by Alex Haley.  For eight nights I was hooked as I sat glued to the television to see what happened in Alex Haley’s family and got my...

A Change Well Worth the Wait

Last week I was pretty certain I had died during the move from Dallas to the country.  The only thing that convinced me I wasn’t in heaven was that I could feel every  muscle in my body ache.  I think I’ve mentioned before, anyone who moves at my age should have their...

Moving On

It’s been a few weeks since I announced our relocation to our East Texas farm.  Those weeks have been busy, selling a business, shutting operations down, selling our house, packing, all in preparation for the big move – THIS WEEK.  Fortunately, today I found the...

When You Least Expect It

Everyone has had a time in their life when an unexpected event or circumstance occurs that turns their world 180 degrees.  I’ve had several.  The first was when the big tornado hit Dallas in 1957.  It was my first experience with the unexpected.  Another was when God...

A Lot Like Monk

My husband and I love watching re-runs of “Monk,” the chronic OCD detective who can solve all his cases despite his many quirks.  After about the fiftieth show, I sat there wondering why I was drawn to watch someone with so many OCD problems.  It is definitely...

The Impact of Your Story

I have a short list of ministry leaders I like and follow.  One of them is Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries.  I believe he is (or if not, will be) the evangelist of America and the world.  Greg jumped to the top of my list recently when he wrote his devotional,...
