Made With Love By…

A corner of the closet is home to a box where special cards, crayon pictures, and glued together popsicle sticks are safely tucked away. Treasures that someday will be found and the finder will wonder ‘what on earth’ – precious to the maker at the time and forever to…

Life, Liberty…

Regardless of the outcome of today’s election in America, there is only One who is in control. As a people we are where we are mostly out of neglect. Neglecting to incline our hearts to a God who is sovereign over every nation. “For…

Wanted…

Ever feel unwanted – unneeded – unnecessary? Breaking news: it’s universal. From the orphan on the streets in slum city, to the aged widow alone and love gone, to the overwhelmed mom trying to keep up. The one out to deceive blinds us to our…

Sure Thing…

  These days uncertainty greets as our feet hit the floor. Weather, work, politics, violence, money, health, loved ones – nothing is sure anymore. Still, we are all looking for a sure thing – even as we reach out it seems to slip from…

All Things…

Thunder rumbles loud. Barely noticed by those beneath the grey sky. Our noisy world hardly hears a siren, an explosion, a cry for help. Hearing only what is important at the moment. The phone call, the broken printer, the angry client. But thunder rumbles for a reason, song…

Sighs…

You do know it don’t you? You are the joy set before Him, set before Jesus, set before your Savior, set before the lover of your soul. “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the…

Brushstrokes…
