Learning God’s Ways

Learning God’s Ways

After years of getting to know my husband, I can finally say that I have come to understand his ways.  I know what makes him happy, how he thinks and how he handles things.  I will even go as far as to say that I understand the “why” behind what he does.  I understand his motives, […]

A Few Great Blessings With A Few Gray Hairs

A Few Great Blessings With A Few Gray Hairs

There were white splotches on my arms and hands.  After painting our bedroom all morning, I finally took a shower.  As I was drying my hair I noticed some white streaks on the top of my head.  Some paint must have dripped on my hair… but how could it fall in such perfect stripes…?  Before […]

God Has The First And Last Word

God Has The First And Last Word

For some reason, it just makes me chuckle when I read about a meaningful or unique discovery made by scientists or university geniuses that the Bible had already logged on its pages thousands of years earlier.  No matter what humans set out to do, they can’t seem to disprove or outsmart the God of the […]

The Nothing Space

The Nothing Space

Where is God When I Need Him the Most?

Where is God When I Need Him the Most?

The Israelites were trembling at the edge of the Red Sea with their enemies fast approaching from behind.  The massive sea before them offered no hope of escape.  They were stuck in an impossible situation and needed a miracle!  Recently I discovered a hidden treasure in the Bible regarding this event (Exodus 14) that filled […]

Patent Leather Shoes

Patent Leather Shoes

“Why are you wearing your church shoes to school?”  Sara looked down at her brand new patent leather shoes.  Church shoes?  And that’s how God used a pair of shiny little shoes to get a seven-year-old girl interested in going to church.  The only problem was, Sara had never been to church. From the moment […]

Waiting on God to Answer Our Prayers

Waiting on God to Answer Our Prayers

You would think that after all of the times I’ve prayed and waited for God to answer, I would be an expert by now! I’m not, although I’m much better at it than I used to be. Usually when I think I’ve waited long enough, I’m ready for the next thing in life or I’ve […]
