Taste and See

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him! One of my daughters is a picky eater. It all started when she began to eat baby food. We approached baby food slowly, one fruit and veggie at a time to watch for reactions. We must have gone through […]

A Light In the Darkness

Have you ever been in complete darkness?  I mean where it is pitch black, and you cannot see your hand in front of your face?  What type of emotions did you feel?  Even as adults, the darkness makes us uneasy.  We aren’t comfortable with what we cannot see.  Our minds can begin to race with […]

Take Off That Mask!

Tomorrow night, kids from all over will be dressed up in some type of disguise.  Boys and girls have been anxiously waiting the day to go out trick or treating or trunk or treating to fill their little bags with lots of sugar filled candy!  Yippie!!!  It’s not all about the candy though.  Kids start […]

Written On His Hand

The other day a friend texted me and asked me to pray for her. She was having a rough day and needed prayer all day long. I often find myself saying that I will pray for someone and then promptly forgetting all about it as soon as something else grabs my attention. Because I knew […]

How’s Your Week?

This week hasn’t gone so well. Not in the way of having cancer or losing a child. Not like being laid off or driving through a tornado. Just a week with annoyances and tests, things that make me clinch my teeth and breathe shallow. A week where my car got anonymously sideswiped and the bank […]

Waves Tossed in the Ocean~

Have you ever watched the waves of the ocean toss uncontrollably back and forth?  Life can sometimes feel just like that! One morning last week I was blessed to read the entire book of James lying in a hammock on the beach in Florida.  I do love a good object lesson!  As I watched the […]

Finding Strength in Weakness

Luke 21:34 Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down. If you could fill in the blank “_______ is hard!” What would you write? Life is full of hard stuff right? We are all struggling with something in our lives, whether it is with parenting, marriage or even singleness, life is […]

The Unswerving and the Spurring

In The Fast and the Furious, star Vin Diesel and other actors love fast cars and use them for racing and pulling off large heists.  It’s a fast and furious lifestyle. Yet, the movie has a strong “relationship” factor.  The main characters (who are thieves for sure) are all about relationships–even when these relationships lead […]

True Value

I love to go yard-saling! Finding little treasures in the midst of someone else’s discarded junk is priceless…even if I’m only willing to pay a quarter for it. Where I live the first weekend of October is always the Highway 60 yard sale. Over 200 miles of yard sales, craft sales, garage sales & rummage […]

A Little Focus, by Nicole Coomer

A Little Focus Please… I was in a meeting with key leaders this past week and the word that I kept hearing was Kingdom Focus.  The question asked continually was “How will this build or impact the Kingdom”? Great question. Kingdom Focus requires us leaving our comfort zones and going to the nations among us. […]
