Morning Glories and Bindweeds

This is the time of year I begin to plan my vegetable garden. Soon will be planting season. For the last few years my garden has been taken over and choked out by morning glories.   Morning Glories - Weeds disguised as beautiful flowers.   They are hardy. They are tenacious. They are opportunistic. They... Continue Reading →

Faith Like a Child

"I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill." (Psalm 3:4)   My 6-year-old had gotten into a predicament [she was okay, but she needed a little help]. She was on the other side of the house. She yelled for me to help her.   I couldn't... Continue Reading →

His first time alone with the sheep, he falls asleep. When he awakes he realizes that the sheep have been scattered. He is afraid and doesn't... Continue Reading →

Where are your accusers?

  I have struggled a bit with a fear. A fear of being found out. A fear of judgement.   What will they "say" about me?    Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and... Continue Reading →

New Every Morning

New year, new resolutions. Good intentions. Failures.   Today, I simply want to share some encouragement with you. New Year's Day is not the only time you can start over. You can begin again every morning.   "The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies... Continue Reading →
