Simon Says

“Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you and you shall answer me.” Job 38:2-3 Playing “Simon Says” with my eight-year-old grandson, Titus, proved to be more than I could measure up to. He was overjoyed when it was his turn to give the commands and watch Nana and his older sister move at his voice. Of course, his little brother just thought it was all fun and ran around like a wind up toy. For a brief moment, Titus took full advantage of being in charge and watching everyone obey. Simon says, "Jump". Simon says, "Run”. “Run” Simon says, “Pat your head”. “Jump” Simon says, “Stop”. Suddenly, you could see it in his eyes!

You Are A Mighty Warrior

“The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” Judges 6:11-12 It is always both encouraging and inspiring to bump into familiar characters in the Bible that are so much like yourself.

Because of family heart history, every little flutter can bring sudden fear. I had done my yearly examination which included all of the important heart tests. All came back normal and I felt great relief. But a few weeks later I was awakened from a deep sleep with a pounding heartbeat. My body was sweating and I had an excruciating headache. I didn’t know if I needed to go to the emergency room, call the doctor or go back to bed. When I got up and walked around the house my heart seemed to settle down. Was it an unknown dream or lurkin

Wave After Wave

“Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 As summer comes to a close, I reflect on all the lessons learned from time with my grandchildren. My three-year-old grandson, River wasn’t really sure about the ocean. He was definitely mesmerized by the big water, but wasn’t so sure he wanted to get too close to the crashing waves. There was an automatic respect of this powerful body of water that continuously sent waves that shifted the sand beneath his little feet. On day one, he was quite resistant to get his feet in the water. While everyone else was running to jump into the water, he gripped his daddy’s hand and pulled ba
