Heavenly Voices

By |2018-03-08T19:52:29-07:00January 6th, 2018|Blog|

As someone who has always loved music and occasionally belts out a ballad or two, the idea of singing praises to God for eternity hits a good note with me. Recently a discussion came about at a Bible study I attend. We were talking about worship and praise and someone commented that she thought only singing was true worship. Now, truly we know that music [...]

His Immeasurable Love

By |2018-03-08T20:26:12-07:00July 4th, 2016|Blog|

They call states like Montana and Wyoming God’s country and fittingly so. After spending two weeks in Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, my husband and I were awe-struck with the beauty God displays there. His creation wraps itself around every road’s bend, spills down every waterfall into rivers and lakes below. The rivers rush onward aiming to quench its demanding and lush thirst to full [...]

But For The Joy…

By |2018-03-09T16:43:21-07:00March 12th, 2016|Blog, Poetry|

Spring is nearly here and Easter is just around the corner. It is my favorite time of year. As color blooms its way through the rain softened ground and emerges with new life, we can’t help but sense the hope that springs forth with it. As our eyes behold the beauty that has been hidden for months, we realize just how dull things have looked [...]

Neglecting the Signs

By |2018-03-09T16:43:31-07:00December 14th, 2015|Blog, Poetry|

Hebrews 13:2, Hebrews 12:12-13, Hebrews 13:16 How many times have we all found ourselves driving along a road or highway daydreaming and in an instant we lose sight of where we are or where we are going? We’ve all missed a sign or turn and took an unplanned route as a result of our inattention. Our own personal distractions, foggy spiritual focus as well as [...]

In His Time

By |2018-03-08T20:23:33-07:00November 25th, 2015|Blog|

Recently I was praying about my busy schedule and I asked God to help me sort it all out. It was all good stuff... things that honored Him. Most everything on my schedule involved Godly activities for His glory. One particular responsibility was our small group Bible study. My husband and I host and lead a study for about 16 people. We take turns doing [...]

Purple to the Rescue

By |2018-03-09T16:27:17-07:00October 16th, 2015|Blog, Poetry|

The virtuous woman as described in Proverbs 31 is commonly set forth as a standard for Christian women and has always been a favorite of mine. While I fall sorely behind meeting that standard in many ways-especially the part about rising before dawn, one characteristic is especially fitting for me- the love of the color purple. In verse 22 it says: “She makes tapestry for [...]

Muddy Paths

By |2018-03-08T20:20:53-07:00August 17th, 2015|Blog|

Any artist who paints knows that there is one color you never want to put in your painting and that is mud. Now this isn’t a color you can buy in a tube or jar, it is really a non-color, but actually what has been dubbed as “mud” when too many of the wrong colors have been mixed together and end up looking very much [...]

A Surprising Perspective

By |2018-03-08T20:19:57-07:00July 20th, 2015|Blog|

As our plane approached LAX on the evening of our return from a vacation, a large number of passengers began making o-o-oh sounds. I glanced out my window and saw a most amazing and surprising sight - fireworks exploding everywhere for miles. It was an awesome and most interesting perspective of our nation's birthday celebration for the 4th of July. Of course I have seen [...]

Running the Race in Stride

By |2018-03-08T20:29:20-07:00June 15th, 2015|Blog|

Oh that we should ride on the strength of the Lord Each and every day of our race. Oh, that we would let His swift and powerful legs Continue to set the pace. Oh, that each day's trumpet would Open the gate and start us with great vigor, And harnessed to Him 't would carry our spirits, With all of His might and rigor. Imagine [...]
