Who Stole It?

“The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But I am come that you may have life and have it to the full – abundantly.” John 10:10 The storage container cabinet was spilling over again.

I plop to the floor and the matching game begins when it occurs to me this must be related to the missing sock drawer. I’ve concluded that a sock thief lives in every washer and dryer who sneaks over to the storage cabinet snatching lids and containers. I guess there is a dark hidden hole someplace that has my socks neatly stored away. Can I get a witness? The only consolation is that all o

It doesn’t matter if it is expecting the scale to lie about what all I ate this week or expecting my husband to know what I need and when. (Come on, Ladies! How can any man ever figure

Mountain Moving God

They stood and sang with such convincing passion and confidence. They were not strangers to our church, but actually a part of the family. They led worship many times throughout the years and always on this last day of the year. But something was different this time. Their faith had grown and it was contagious. It hung around like a sweet perfume and actually permeated the atmosphere. It is a faith that is being tried and proven true. There they stood and declared their faith in a mountain moving God. Who could deny it? They awaken every morning staring at a literal Oregon mountain. Whether it shows itself mighty and real that day or not, they KNOW it is there. Early mornings take them a sho
