Good Afternoon! There's a buzz in the air as kids are counting down the days until summer vacation. It suddenly seems possible that school is almost over. That reminds me of a verse that "clicked" for me last week. Isn't it wonderful how the Lord will keep certain verses hidden until one moment it suddenly … Continue reading 2018-05-08 I Can Move A Mountain?
Good Morning! What beautiful weather we have had! The farmers around here are finally getting in the field and much-needed rain is coming. I had the following verse come up twice in the past few days. It needs to be shared! Acts 4:20 for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard." … Continue reading 2018-05-07 Inviting A Beating!
Good Morning! Another lesson God is teaching me is that my days are numbered. I know, I know, that's not something you probably want to think about so early in the morning, but that doesn't change the inevitable. I was in a bicycle shop yesterday and helped by a salesman who was on his "retirement" … Continue reading 2018-05-02 My Days Are Numbered!

These are often run-on sentences that twist our tongue. We … Continue reading 2018-04-30 Tongue-Twisting Paul!
Good Morning! To follow up with yesterday's post about prayer, I went through my prayer journal last night. Yes, I do have a prayer journal. Honestly, I don't use it as much as I should. It's to my own benefit to do so. When I thumb through the pages, I am reminded of all the … Continue reading 2018-04-26 Got My Back?
Good Morning! We had an answered prayer this morning. Maybe it wasn't that big of a deal. Apparently, it wasn't because I really didn't give praise to God as I should have. I thought, well, that's cool. To be honest, I reacted as I would have whether I had prayed for it or not. It … Continue reading 2018-04-25 The Prayer of a Drowning Man.
