Injuries Happen

It was Senior night for our oldest grandson a couple of weeks ago. He and his parents were on the field along with the other seniors all of them being honored. We’ve been watching the games on tv but went to see the festivities last night. Imagine our concern (horror?) as our grandson was injured. The word we got was broken arm. The rest of us went home and waited while grandson and parents went to the hospital. Finally we heard the news. And the injury was slight enough that he wanted to go back and finish the game. Doc …

God Forgives Our Sins

Scripture: He forgives all our iniquities and heals all our diseases Psalm 103: 3 Though our sins are like a stench in God’s nostrils, He is merciful and when confessed, He forgives our sins, past, present, and future; so we should not fear losing our salvation. For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son: that whosoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. John 3: 16 Each of us sins every day either in thought, attitude, or wrong acts: aren’t you thankful each time we sin, if we confess our sin, God will forgive our sin and cleanse us from a unrighteousness. 1st …

Jesus Restores Ear of Malchus

        John 18: 4-11 “Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?”  “Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground. Again he asked them, “Who is it you want?”“Jesus of Nazareth,” they said. Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, then let these men go.” This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: “I …

What Do You Believe

What do you believe when it all comes down?   I was put to the test with this very thing.   The plans were set and off we flew to Colorado with some friends. We were set to spend the next four days horseback riding, sightseeing, checking out the hot springs and taking a motorcycle ride. Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Oh, we were excited and everything just felt right. Back home we even had a realtor preparing to present a bid for the home of our dreams. Life was just good. The first night in town, we headed over …

Embracing Divine Interruptions

      Embracing Divine Interruptions   “Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.”  Acts 3: 2 In the first century there was no Welfare Department, no Department of Human Services, no local food bank or organization to help the handicapped or the sick. This man’s situation was chronic. He was lame from birth. He had never walked so his entire life he was dependent upon the generosity and kindness of others. There was no …

 My hubby had a stroke in May. When that stroke occurred we were in the midst of a misdiagnosis. They didn’t get it right. Twice. It was only because of the Holy Spirit speaking to a physician after my husband’s arrival in Little Rock that the real problem was discovered. I’ll ever be thankful for a woman up early for her quiet time who heard the Lord speak to her heart: “Go see that man in person.” She responded and came to see him in person and discovered that this could not possibly be a simple back issue. Now we …

Sweet Release

  Family curses are real. My family tree is a tangled up mess. Generations have battled depression, bitterness, shame, sickness and more. For years, when I thought of my paternal grandparents I couldn’t even bring myself to say a prayer. When I knew they needed prayer, I delegated. I asked my husband or my children to do the work because my heart couldn’t find the words. I’m not sure how, but I didn’t see this as unforgiveness. God knew my limitations though. He understood that years of rejection had left me speechless and hard. There had to be grace for …
