Family Time

My sister and her family are coming to Georgia all the way from New Jersey for a few weeks. I am going to take the opportunity to enjoy her and her three little ones as much as possible. When they visit, there is very little downtime, which I have to have, to write on Graceful … Continue reading »

The Master of Preparation

Last week on our Salkehatchie mission trip, when it the time came to paint Miss Annie’s house, we had to do some prep work. Her front porch was screened and if we didn’t cover the screen with some sort of protection, the brand new paint would have dripped on it and ruined it. Our best … Continue reading »

Witnessing Everyday Miracles

On Thursday of our mission trip, our work site finished up. It was early. There are normally small tasks to do until the very last minute. But, this year, we got it done early. Our site leader shook his head and said it was a first for him in his many years, like twenty-plus, in … Continue reading »

The View from Our Knees

On a recent mission trip that my family attended, we toured two houses in need of repair. My daughter and I felt drawn to one and my hubby and son felt drawn to the other. This, as it turns out, was not by accident. This was my hubby’s and son’s first trip to a Salkehatchie … Continue reading »

Being the Ears

Last week, my family attended a mission work camp in South Carolina. This was my second year. I was no longer a rookie. I went in with skills and confidence that I didn’t have the year before. When we visited the two houses we would be working on, only one needed a roof. That was … Continue reading »

Embracing the Call

This week, my family and I are embarking on a new adventure. We are all participating in a Salkehatchie mission camp and as usual, I am amazed as I look back at how God was working to get us there. A few years ago, at my last church, a family moved into our area from … Continue reading »

Letting the Creator Create

On a recent trip to Jekyll Island on the Georgia coast, my family visited a place called Driftwood Beach. For the most part, it isn’t really driftwood. It’s actually huge oak trees and some pines that have either been eroded by the ocean or have blown in from storms. So, it’s a beach littered with … Continue reading »

The Power of Faith

As I was reading through Acts, chapter three, for my online Bible study, Peter’s words and actions really spoke to me. Yes, this was the same Peter who was always kind of running off at the mouth. Yes, this was the same Peter who was a simple fisherman. He had certainly never been to seminary. … Continue reading »

A Message of Light

A couple of nights ago, I had a restless night. I tossed and turned as my body desperately needed to sleep, but my mind refused to shut down. Maybe that has happened to you? An opportunity that I had prayed about for a long time, was lying at my feet and while I was excited … Continue reading »

Disappointed, but not Discouraged

For the past few months, my church has been planning our very first Vacation Bible School in our new location. I am super passionate about that ministry and I spearheaded all of the planning. I put together a budget and I ordered a ton of stuff. I spoke to the congregation and they were on … Continue reading »
