One, just ONE

This morning, our dear friend, Ted Yoder posted a song based off the story of the Prodigal Son. (You can hear it here – by all means, go listen! Better yet, play it while you’re reading.)  This composition is yet another piece of the Truth that Father is trying to teach me. Amusingly, He’s teaching … Continue reading

Who is He? Wednesday

Do you know what today is?!!  It’s Who is He? Wednesday. Many churches have midweek services, but they aren’t until tonight.  I need my faith encouraged and strengthened for the busyness of the day!  SO, I have decided it’s a great time to institute Who is He? Wednesday. And He who sits on the throne said, … Continue reading

Danger Will Robinson! Danger!

Robot (if he had another name, I was never aware of it) was Will Robinson’s companion, a constant attendant to keep Will from getting into trouble or danger of any kind.  He would roll along with Will or Judy and warn them of any impending danger or concerns that he might have, any time he … Continue reading

Just one thing

The counter was full of dirty dishes, I’m SURE!  The floor likely sticky – all those grapes?  (YOU ever make grape juice?! Yeah.  That’s what I’m saying.)  There were people all about – her reputation on the line.  All in all, it was a very stressful day. Coming out of the “kitchen” to set a bowl … Continue reading

Mining

Picture with me, if you will, a mine.  Mines have one yield.  You aren’t likely to walk into a copper mine in the UP of Michigan and come away with emeralds.  (Unless of course when they turn the lights out in the mine to show you how dark it is, you pop them off your … Continue reading

Joseph and his many coats of color

Does it amaze you, as well, when you are re-reading something in the Word that you know you’ve read MANY times and suddenly, you notice something that you had not seen before?  I did that this morning with Joseph and his coats. I have grown up with Joseph and his coat of many colors, so … Continue reading

What can we do?

The other day on my FB page, someone began a discussion about worship.  My thoughts have continued to swirl concerning the topic.  The question burning my lips has become, “Can we ever attain to being women of worship, if we do not spend time in the Word?” I thought that was the end of the … Continue reading

A Snickers ain’t gonna cut it!

It’s 4:30 in the afternoon and I’m STARVING.  I don’t mean hungry, I mean STARVING.  Okay, so not quite STARVING – but REALLY REALLY hungry.  I had breakfast and I had lunch, so how in the world could I be this hungry? Because my time in the Word this morning was cut short.  We had … Continue reading

Love is a many splendored thing, indeed!

He knew from looking at her bluing lips that death was imminent – every breath labored and painful for his precious daughter.  He didn’t understand why this was happening to him.  He as a man of position and power.  There were few who outranked him and yet – in the face of death, he was … Continue reading

Grapefruited underwater newspapers

Our library basket is full and overflowing…all the time.  One of the authors our library carries – and somehow keeps finding its way home with us – is truly a beautiful writer.  Their words sound lovely – they have a rhythm and melody all their own.  As you read you become so caught up in the harmonies … Continue reading
