Do You Need a Ride?

Each time I’m at church, I am met with a sign when I leave the parking lot which says, “You are now entering the mission field.”  That same sign is at several churches I’ve attended. You’ve probably seen them, too.  Remembering this sign is why I decided to...

What’s On Your Mind?

The mind is a beautiful thing.  Stories have been written about it, movies made about it, and we hear something on the radio or TV every single day about it.  Unfortunately, lately what we hear is the mind/mental health for a lot of Americans is declining...

In His Image

I look forward to Easter every year. It’s a time of new beginnings.  As a child, I was excited about the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, lots of candy, and my new Easter clothes.  Then as I grew older, my faith matured, and I became intrigued how my...

Time to Come Home

I read something fascinating this week.  In the British Isles, a sheep was found after hiding out in a cave for a total of six years.  The fleece on the sheep continued to grow over those six years since it was not near a shearer.  When the sheep was...

Hope in the Midst of Darkness

Alexei Navalny’s recent death has been widely publicized in the news. He was an activist combatting corruption in the Russian government. Media reports that Vladimir Putin likely played a role in his death. What intrigued me about Navalny is that his final years...

The Importance of History

I learned something new this week … January 27 is designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, so designated by the United Nations General Assembly to coincide with the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the...

Do You Stand for Life?

Each year since 1984, the third Sunday of January has been known as Sanctity of Life Sunday.  I arrived at church today anticipating an inspiring sermon about the value of life, but, unfortunately, that was not the sermon offered at my church and, from what I...

Is Someone at the Door?

Hubby and I have been AirBNB hosts for many years.  We have welcomed hundreds of guests over the years. I can truthfully say we have never had a bad experience.  This week, though, was a first (a wonderful first). Let me tell you about it. A young man (I’ll...

Crossing the Finish Line

My family loves sports – baseball, football, basketball – you name it.  Perhaps it’s the competition we thrive on. Whatever the reason, I’ve always admired athletes (perhaps because I’m not one).  I thought about our history for love of competition this week...

Do Not Fear

I was sitting in church yesterday, actually listening to the sermon, as I prepared myself for this Christmas week.  We were reading from the book of Luke (Luke 2:10-11): “The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great...

The Power of Prayer

On December 26, 1934, a young Welsh man received a vision from the Holy Spirit in the dark of night. At 3:00 a.m. the Lord began to call him into faith for world evangelization and the completion of the Great Commission. This young man was an intercessor in prayer for...

Lost and Finally Found

When we moved to East Texas in 2017, we embarked on a new adventure farm living. We had dear friends that later moved to East Texas from the hustle and bustle of Dallas.  Not long after, my dear friend lost her sister, mother and husband within a year.  She...
