Roofing Lessons

I was recently talking with a friend of mine about a mission opportunity she is considering. She’s thinking about going to a Salkehatchie work camp this summer with her son, but she’s undecided. I encouraged her to go and I told her it would be life changing, but I warned her they may put her … Continue reading »

The Force of the Spirit

I was recently helping with a little yard work around my church. I find that most Southerners tend to be proficient with planting and growing things. For many of us, we had planting wisdom lovingly handed down to us from parents or even grandparents, and we love to share our growing experiences with each other. … Continue reading »

A Golden Reminder

I just finished reading the account of Moses getting the Ten Commandments from God. The Israelites had survived plagues and been rescued from the Egyptians. They had seen God part the Red Sea and make water come from a rock where there had been no water. They were being fed with manna from Heaven. They … Continue reading »

Making a Positive Kingdom Impact

I received a text from my daughter last week showing me her A in a class that she had really been working hard in. She had been sitting on an 89.5 and then an 89.7, but this particular teacher refused to round up. She was frustrated, but kept at it. When she finally got her … Continue reading »

He Still Parts the Waters

As I was reading through Exodus and the account of God parting the Red Sea, I was reminded that God would again part the waters, some forty years later. This time He parted the waters of the Jordan River and this time it wasn’t for Moses, but for Joshua. Joshua was a slave in Egypt … Continue reading »

Squirrel Lessons

As I was traveling down the road yesterday to meet a friend, a squirrel ran out into the road directly in my path. Now squirrels are famous for being indecisive. Instead of running across the road, they will run back and forth and end up flattened. This particular one froze and if he stayed put, … Continue reading »

Hummingbird Reminders

A couple of days ago, I was sitting on my back porch when I saw a hummingbird fly by. I was filled with excitement and guilt all at once. I was excited because I really enjoy watching them every year at the feeder and also because it was just one more sign that summer is … Continue reading »

He Gets Between

As I was recently reading through the Exodus of Israel account, I noticed that God stayed ahead of the Israelites and they followed Him. “By day, ┬áthe Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, … Continue reading »

It’s What You Leave Behind

When the sun came up yesterday morning, I was delighted to see that my yellow irises were blooming. They even have a name, Money. They bloom every year right around my birthday and they are like a birthday wish from heaven. My maternal grandmother died the month before I was born and so I never … Continue reading »

Moving Towards Something Better

I’m currently following along with an online Bible study on the website #shereadstruth. It’s about the life of Moses and his part in the deliverance of the Israelites. One day last week, I read the passage, in Exodus, chapter five, where Moses asked Pharaoh to let the people go and not only did he refuse, … Continue reading »
