You Need The Real Thing

Guitars have been part of my family since before I was born. Uncles, cousins and my own children play them. Our middle daughter and our son started playing when their grandmother gave them a small guitar when they were young. That daughter now has one of the best guitars made, given to her by her husband for Christmas. So I laughed as I looked at a portable pocket guitar for sale. It’s just the upper part, the fret of the guitar and it was called a guitar gadget trainer. But I know it can’t do much for you because it’s not …

Woman of Great Worth

Books, especially historical fiction, are one of my favorites.  Back when I had lots of free time it was nothing for me to read a book or two a week.  This morning one of my favorites comes to mind, Follow The River.  It is the story of a 23-year-old pioneer woman who was taken by Indians from her home in 1755.  Somehow she managed to escape and walk 1000 miles along the Alleghany River back to her home.  She made it, though she faced much peril and hardship.  When she arrived home, her hair was totally white. God speaks to …

God’s Strength

We have been attending a particular motorcycle swap meet for many years. This year we went with one of our daughters and son in love. We had a great time and since it was misty raining it was especially nice to let someone else worry about the driving. There was only one problem – their pickup is so tall that it was like climbing Mt. Everest every time we got in. Not a problem for Danny but wow, it wasn’t so easy for me. Each time it got a little harder. Finally, I was just about done in with the …

Fresh Strength

The prophet Isaiah uses very beautiful imagery to portray the strength that God gives to those who trust in Him.  In the strength of the LORD we begin to soar like eagles.  The eagle is a picture of confidence, flying so effortlessly and gracefully.  But when the eagle loses its strength to fly, it then flies to a high mountain and wait there for rejuvenation.  After the overall restoration process, it has fresh strength and is then ready to fly to even higher heights. A greater example is found in Matthew [14:23]  “After times of preaching and healing, Jesus backed …

Fall Devotions

  Day 5   Well our week is coming to a close and I just want to take a minute to recap what we have read and hopefully been challenged with this week. Well, we know for sure I love fall!  Everything fall!  But I love everything fall because it reminds me so much of Jesus and His love for me and for you. The color changes that happen, the leaves that fall, the blankets we pull out and the cool breeze with the rays of warm sunshine…all Jesus. He truly loves us more than we understand most days.  He …

Fall Devotions

Day 4 I lived in Houston, Texas for almost 8 years.  The summers were so hot.  That seems like not enough to describe them.  I can remember walking outside and the heat and humidity being so high that it literally would take your breath away.  You couldn’t do very many things outside because of the extreme temperatures and if you did you must take breaks often and make sure you drank lots of water to keep you from dehydration.  It was so hot at times the power would go out in our homes due to the magnitude of power being …

God Has More Grace Waiting for You

Paul said, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through [Christ] who gives me strength.” Philippians [4:12]-13 (NIV) The art of being content is a very difficult lesson to learn. Very few people are really content for longer than a few hours at a time. By that I mean you will say you are content and have all you need then …
