Let Your Light Shine

Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.” Matthjew 5:15-16 Grief has a way of stripping you and leaving you quite vulnerable. I watched my friend be stripped bare through family loss, the death of several close friends, and then ministry loss that came through my decision. I watched the light drain from her face when she no longer had a ministry position to fill amidst the already great loss she was wading through. She was not only lost, but hurt and confused. Like a mother who sends her last child off to school and feels a great loss of purpose and destiny, she too was living in a puddle. She walked

I Want My Bottle

“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.“ Hebrews 5:12,14 I wish you all had the privilege of meeting my little grandson, River.

My two-year old grandson, Asher is full of so many words. He will mimic anything that you say. He called to me, “Grammy, Grammy, come with me.” I followed him into the toy closet where he pointed to the old can of tinker toys that was left over from when his dad was a boy. I was shocked when he said, “May I have that please?” What? This boy is only two! I am amazed at his long sentences, but I am stunned by how he listens and repeats the last word that he hears. No matter what you say to him, he al

The Passageway

“Nevertheless, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending side by side for the faith of the gospel.” Philippians 1:27 “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 61:3 There is only a small patch of ground separating our houses. There it is spread out between our neighboring driveways. This little patch is the spot we cross over to borrow an onion or a cup of milk. Many homemade breads and treats have made the passage. Fresh fruits and vegetables from her garden just happen to show up. We
