SAME RIVER SAME WORD

Have you ever been kayaking down a river? I fell in love with kayaking on a family vacation several years ago and when my son said he wanted to do something special together before he went off to graduate school, I knew what I wanted to do. We spent a morning kayaking down the Chestatee River in Dahlonega, Georgia. It was such a quiet, peaceful morning. There was only one other kayak on the river as we made our way down stream, which was probably good since we didn't really know what we were doing. I may or may not have [...]

OTHERS FIRST, PLEASE.

What is your favorite scripture verse? If you're like me, it's hard to choose, because depending on the time or season of life you're in, different verses become your life line. We all know and love John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." When I first stepped out into ministry, the verse that served as my anchor was 2 Timothy 3:16, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness," When my children [...]

The Perfect Thing to Feast on First Thing in the Morning!

Do you wake hungry? I woke up this morning thinking about what I could eat. It was almost as if I hadn't eaten in days. Before 6 a.m. this morning I was making baked oatmeal and anticipating the flavors. I started grabbing fruit and nuts to add to yogurt on top of it. Do you wake up anticipating the Word of God the same way? I had to ask myself that question today. Do I anticipate a bite of the Word the way I was anticipating a bite of that baked oatmeal?" Do I understand the necessity of feeding my spirit [...]

A much better view……..

Pismo Beach in California. What scriptures stand out in your mind as ones people quote frequently? John 3:16 is probably the most common verse ever spoken, For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Another verse that seems to get a lot of face time is Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I’ve heard people speak [...]

Why do we do it?

What are your favorite Christmas traditions? I asked my daughter this question at breakfast and she didn't hesitate with her answer. It's a tie. I love how we get a new Christmas ornament given to us each year because they represent our life as we have grown up, what we've loved. I also love when our family gathers around Christmas Eve to read the Bible story of the first Christmas. Hands down, those are my favorite traditions." I love everything about Christmas. I can't choose a favorite tradition because they're all special to me.  I love learning the story behind [...]

Will you walk through it?

Door of No Return in the Elmina Castle, Ghana Are you a visual person?  When you read things, do you picture them in your mind?  I have a very vivid imagination and it doesn't matter if I'm reading a novel or a newspaper article, I picture what I'm reading.  I love it when I actually come across something in life that is a picture of something I've read, particularly Scripture. This happened when I toured the Elmina Castle in Ghana, West Africa. Matthew 7:13-14 says, Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is [...]
