Standing Out

“Why blend in when I was born to stand out?” The actor’s words cut deeply.  Isn’t it just like God to use a line from a movie to mold your heart!?! How often have I blended? Too often.  When someone treats another wrongly, and I failed to speak up. Blended. When I know that someone is […]

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.

Cheers!

My morning routine usually includes the Power Almond Quinoa Oatmeal (which I “doctor up” of course) from Panera Bread. As I entered this particular morning, you could hear the young lady before she was in sight. She ‘bellowed’ her next move or whatever she was thinking at the moment. The young lady appeared to be […]

Views from Two Windows

About five years ago, I took a group of college students with the campus ministries department on a mission trip to Jamaica.  Now, I know what you’re thinking….a mission trip to Jamaica must’ve been nice….really roughing it, huh?….more like cushion trip.  I would have thought the same things if I had not been a part […]

Am I in Heaven?

There are so many growing trends in hospitals across the country.  Walking harpists, therapy dogs dressed in costume, or just simply a designated quiet time where lights are made dim and voices lowered for a few hours.  Studies show this to be quite conducive for healing the human body.  In one instance so much so […]

Planting Seeds I am an avid gardener. I love planning and preparing the soil for spring. The highlight of the spring season for our family is planting day. It’s the day when we diligently make rows and place the seeds in the ground. The Coomer household has been blessed with four little disciples and that […]

The Living Water

John 4:13-14 Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life. It was noon, the other women drew their water in the morning and evening, she knew […]
