RESToration…

Projects – a lot of work. Restoring something – an old chair or an old house requires…yikes, patience. I’m wondering if Jesus has ever said ‘yikes’ as He takes us on to restore us to Him? For some the restoration of our spirit by…

Delay Tactics…

Nap time or bedtime – words that signal little boys to suddenly find many things to do. In the end maybe they were successful delaying closing those eyes, but it eventually happened. I learned a life lesson recently that I wish I had embraced…

I Declare…

My childhood was a bit eclectic when it came to speech. From deep south ‘Well I declares’ to out west trend setting phrases. I’m finding words are not wasted in the Bible. Each purposeful, each calling attention. Many times in the book of John…

All Times…

Sometimes I let people down. Do you? Sometimes I let myself down. It’s gotten harder in our world of instant everything. To take the time to think before we speak, act, react – seems archaic. So there’s face time, instant messaging, texts, and more….
