Our Advocate

    3-26-17 Do you ever have one of those days when you wake up late, the dog refuses to do his business as you’re walking him, and you leave your lunch on the counter in a rush to make it to work on time? Then it seems like the world fights against you allContinue reading “Our Advocate”


12-4-16 Yesterday Mark and I were driving in the county over from where we live. The road was particularly narrow and windy, even for our area. The mountain’s sheer drop off inches from the pavement on one side had him clenching the steering wheel with both hands and me gripping the passenger door’s hand rest. And there were noContinue reading “Guardrails”

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”

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.

It’s been an eventful day for several reasons, and I’ve had some things on my mind. Mostly what’s left behind whenContinue reading “Leaving a Legacy”

How Big is Your Net?

5-22-16 During potluck today, we talked about the events that led a couple to be in Church with us. It began with a Bible study with someone who suggested a hospital visit for a friend who invited someone they knew who brought two of their relatives. If any of those hadn’t happened, these wonderful people mightContinue reading “How Big is Your Net?”

It’s the Little Things…

5-15-16 It’s funny how certain things stick with you. One of my friends in college said that people need to stop and enjoy life. She pointed out the little purple flowers we were walking by, which I hadn’t paid much attention to. I think about that a lot. I Timothy 6:17 says, “Charge them that are richContinue reading “It’s the Little Things…”
