Last weekend, I popped into my daughter’s room and caught her sitting on her floor and looking out her window. She commented on how beautiful the sky was. I had to agree.

Called to Serve

My church is doing a Bible study on the Gospel of Luke. Last night, we covered chapter four. There’s a lot of events that occur in that chapter. The account of Jesus being tempted by Satan, as well as Jesus preaching in his hometown synagogue and being run out of town, are all big stories. … Continue reading »

Green Pastures

My hubby and I attend a small group with some people from our church. Over the past few months, we have been watching a video series on the Holy Land. The idea is to give modern-day Bible readers, a more accurate picture of Biblical imagery and the landscape, where many of the stories occurred. It’s … Continue reading »

He’s in the Rain Too

Yesterday, I was able to get outside and take a walk. It was supposed to rain, but it was fairly warm, and I decided to take a chance. I pray when I walk and I feel closest to God when I’m outside. It’s hard not to be in awe of God’s creativity when I hear … Continue reading »

Your Verse Here

Back in August, Donald Trump, who was defending his Christianity, stated in front of reporters, that the Bible was his favorite book. The follow-up question was, “What is your favorite Bible verse?” Trump deflected the question and said that it was personal and he wouldn’t share that information. Of course, a firestorm was created about … Continue reading »

Nation Building Musings

I live one town over from Athens, Georgia, home of the Georgia Bulldogs and the University of Georgia. Like most SEC schools, football is king here. We also have a new coach, so that’s a regular topic of conversation too. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Bulldogs as much as any other alum, but … Continue reading »

How Hot is Your Prayer Life?

The ladies of my church watched the movie, “The War Room,” last night. It was one of those movies that truly is life changing because you can take the specific situation represented and transfer it to all areas of Christian life. The focus of the movie was prayer. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. … Continue reading »

Nudged to Love Others

I often give my neighbor a ride home from church. She always worries that she is a burden somehow.
