Obligation

Each time you read my blog you get the inside scoop on my personal story of Christian living.  Sadly, my life is full of ups and downs and downright failures, but all in all I hope it is clear that I put forth great effort to live a life that is pleasing to God on […]

What Do You Offer?

The El Salvador mission story I blogged about on Tuesday really has had me thinking lately about what God really wants me to be doing. Not that I’m going to pack up and move to a far off land and build schools, hospitals and orphanages, but it does have me wondering what I bring to […]

You Might Need to Pray More!

I heard an awesome story on Sunday about a successful man who at the age of 52 was called by God to serve in El Salvador.  He basically left everything he’d ever known behind and moved to an ‘unknown land’ (well, at least to him) and began doing things that helped the people of the […]

September 11th

It’s impossible for me to post a blog on September 11th and not think of two things…the terrifying events of 9/11 and my nephew’s birthday.  One is absolutely horrendous and the other is such a wonderful blessing that I feel completely stuck in the middle of sorrow and joy…Sigh. I’m even more emotionally confused this […]

The Whisper

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets. Hebrews 1:1 Can you imagine hearing the voice of God?  WOW!  I think I’d be in awe, but scared out of my socks!!   Talk about shaking in my boots!  YIKES! However, in light of the latest devastation in […]

NOPE!  It’s real, alright! Oh guys!  I have learned, grown, been humbled, been blessed and most of all been LOVED […]

The Vision Board

Change is a’comin’!  I know it, I feel it and I have failed to prepare for it.  (If the act of thinking prepares oneself for the future, than I should be the most prepared person in the world.  But, I’m pretty sure preparation takes action).  Argh! “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, […]

Why Me?

Have you ever been in a room full of people and someone asks for volunteers?  Do you quickly slump down your chair until you are satisfied that your head is hidden behind the person in front of you.  Do you suddenly become interested in your feet?  Or, do you hold your breath and pray they […]
