Dare To Dream!

Dare To Dream!

We continue again this week with the theme of hope.  Hope is only as good as who or what you put your hope in.  The last line of a song from a popular musical  goes like this:  “Now life has killed the dream I dreamed”.  We’ve probably all experienced times in our lives where we’ve… Read More ›

Hope!

Hope!

Hope!  Just the sound of that word is uplifting and encouraging.  The definition of hope is: the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best; to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence; to believe, desire or trust. Many times, we don’t actually have what… Read More ›

His Eye Is On The Sparrow!

His Eye Is On The Sparrow!

Upon trimming some bushes out at our church, I discovered a small nest.  It is a sparrow’s nest containing 5 tiny eggs.  I’ve been checking on the nest every day and it now contains 5 tiny little baby sparrows.  Occasionally, I catch the mother sparrow feeding her young and sometimes the babies are alone with… Read More ›

Don’t Worry!

Don’t Worry!

In the days we live in, it is all too easy to slip into fear. All you have to do is turn on the news. Listening to many nightly newscasts will make one think that all is lost.  And I hesitate to even call most of it news.  The news used to be based on… Read More ›

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day!

This Sunday, we will be honoring, celebrating and remembering our dads.  For me, the day comes with a lot of wonderful memories.  But that’s not so for everyone. A relative once said that he was never going to have children because he didn’t want to be the kind of father to his children that his… Read More ›

There Is Therefore Now No Condemnation!

There Is Therefore Now No Condemnation!

“Expression of unfavorable judgment; indication of strong disapproval; pronounce as guilty; judging to be unfit for use or service.”  These definitions don’t exactly invoke that warm fuzzy feeling.  They are all definitions of the same word.  Can you guess it?  The word is condemnation.  Have you ever had someone throw condemnation on you? No one… Read More ›

Put On Love!

Put On Love!

Scripture tells us that the absolute greatest gift there is is love.  But these days, it seems you don’t see much love being spread around, especially if you watch TV and the news.  Demeaning insults and remarks are the norm and it would seem our newscasters, politicians and late-night TV hosts try to outdo each… Read More ›

Be Equipped!

Be Equipped!

Last week’s Food was about the importance of reading and doing God’s Word.  The danger of not knowing God’s Word is that it leaves you susceptible to “every wind of doctrine” that comes along.  Or, in other words, it becomes easy to fall for every new teaching not based on scripture. If you don’t know… Read More ›

Take As Directed

Take As Directed

If you are a Christian and attend a church that boldly preaches the Word of God, then you have heard this over and over again – “You gotta read the word!”  And about now you might be thinking “oh no, not again”, but there is just no getting around it if you desire to please… Read More ›

What A Ride!

What A Ride!

Mother’s Day is a wonderful occasion.  It’s a time for each of us to honor and remember our mother and the huge influence she has been in our life.  And, as a mom, memories and thoughts come flooding back to us as we reflect over the years.  If we are truthful, we would say that… Read More ›
