11-27-16 This morning I told my husband that I didn’t know what to write about today. He told me that he’d give me a verse and I could run with it. He quoted Acts 17:26-28 (see below). Naturally, I thought of chicken pot pie. “And He has made from one blood every nation of menContinue reading “Chicken Pot Pie People”

Thankful to be a Citizen
11-23-16 With the holidays approaching, it’s the time of year people really talk about what they’re thankful for. This year, one of the things I’m thankful for is my citizenship, both of our country and of Heaven.
Nature Proclaims His Glory
10-30-16 This past week I was blessed to go on vacation with my family. It was the first time I had been to Hilton Head Island, and it was wonderful. Even though there was still obvious devastation from Hurricane Matthew, the area is absolutely beautiful. Being at the beach it is so easy to feelContinue reading “Nature Proclaims His Glory”
Thoughts from Shopping Carts
10-2-16 Against my better judgment, I went grocery shopping Friday after work. I love people, but I do not enjoy crowds. At all. Especially when I’m in a hurry. But in the interest of eating, I did it anyway.
It’s a Marathon
9-18-16 The Christian life is hard. It’s a wonderful life, and as Christians we are spared a lot of trouble and heartache, but it’s still not easy. Sometimes it’s downright frustrating.

We Still Remember
9-11-16 It was 15 years ago. One of the darkest days in the history of our country. Every year I think back to that day. Where I was, what I was doing. The person I was before. I know many others do too, and Lord willing, we always will.
Politics and Priorities
9-4-16 Politics. Election. Party. Candidate. What just happened? Maybe your heart rate sped up and your palms got sweaty. I know mine do when I think about November. Now, this is in no way an endorsement of a party or candidate. If you want to discuss those, I have nothing against it, but that isn’tContinue reading “Politics and Priorities”
When life goes crazy, is it my fault?

When the Storms Come
7-31-16 This past week I was thinking about the parable of the wise and foolish men and the way they built their houses. Typically I consider this passage as teaching us to build our lives on Jesus, and it is. But I realized that it’s teaching us something else, too. I’d never really considered theContinue reading “When the Storms Come”
7-24-16 One of the blessings, and responsibilities, that we have in the church is to pray. We are allowed and commanded to pray for many things, including ourselves, fellow Christians, those who have not committed to God, the sick, government leaders, and so much more. We should pray as a congregation during church service and individuallyContinue reading “Praying Together”
