Such a Time as This

I live a mile from what locals call “Lincoln Farm”, a small rolling farm that was once owned by a man named Thomas Lincoln.  There, on a cold day in February, a baby named Abraham was born in a tiny cabin…a baby destined for history.  President Abraham Lincoln is one of the most recognizable presidents […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Following God, Even When We Don’t Want To

My whole life I have been trying to follow God’s will. It has always been relatively easy since, from a young age, I have known that God has called me to teach French. In following God’s will, there have been ups and downs, as there usually are, but I finally graduated with a degree in […]

Settling for Less

I remember the last family reunion I attended where several young families stopped for fast food for their children on the way to the gathering.  I understand the issues with picky eaters so I’m not judging, just observing! I come from a long line of great cooks and there were tables loaded down with dish […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

Tears and Oil

Luke 7:36-50 The Pharisee invited Jesus over for dinner. A sinful woman from town heard He was going to be there, so she came with an alabaster jar of perfume oil. As Jesus spoke to the Pharisee, the woman’s tears wet Jesus feet. She wiped them with her hair, kissed His feet then poured perfumed oil on them. […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]

Even If

The Christian band, MercyMe, has a new song out called Even If. Take time today to look this song up and listen to it, TODAY! This song describes a God who is able to remove us from our pain, but even if He chooses for us to endure it for a season, He promises to […]

Light Shines Brightest in the Darkness

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12 Back in the 1980s, my family was touring Mammoth Cave.  We were only a few yards inside the cavern when a lightning strike […]

Citizenship Status

“But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives.  And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.” Philippians 3:20 NLT     On the day I’m writing this, my granny took her last breaths on this earth.  Her suffering has ended and as John writes in Revelation 21-22, […]
