The House Of Broken Dreams

At first I did not even realize that it was happening. I would be zooming along on the internet, happily racing through cyberspace unaware that sometimes when I stopped to take in the view I became disconnected for a moment. It is hard to say how long...
My Ever-Present Help

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 (NIV) This morning, I turned to Psalm 46 and was reminded that not only is God our refuge and strength, He is our ever-present help. When God's Word tells us that He is...
A Hidden Treasure

It was Easter morning in 1967 and I, along with my brother searched the house for the Easter eggs we had helped our parents color the night before. I was as excited as any six year old could be and I had a favorite egg in mind. The night before, my...

The Black Envelope

My pastor is currently doing a sermon series called "I didn't ask for this!" The title of last week's sermon was "The Black Envelope". While listening to the sermon, I found myself remembering the day I was given a black...
A Closer Look At The Good Samaritan

The other night my son and I were having one of those mother and son talks. We have done that a lot over the years actually and the older he has gotten, the more thankful I am that I always made time to talk to and listen to my son. If you do not make...
Run The Race With Perseverance

On September 3, 2007, a few months after I joined CB, I wrote a blog entitled God Is Bigger. In that blog I shared about my cousin Diane who has a rare cerebrovascular disorder called Moyamoya Disease. Life had been tough. About 20 years ago, her...
Oh Be Careful Little Tongue What You Say

A few years ago, I read a book by Brother Andrew entitled "Light Force: The Only Hope For The Middle East". I have to say that this book, along with another book by the same author, entitled "Secret Believers", gave me much to...
Are You Willing?

We like to think that we are willing to face a great deal for the sake of the Gospel but I wonder if we are willing to face simply being inconvenienced or having our life interrupted by someone else? We have all experienced this. We are busy, we have...
The Small Stuff

For a number of years, I taught a summer class for gifted students in grades 3-6 entitled "K'Nex Amusement Park Rides and Technology". For most of the class, students worked together in teams to complete projects. However, I did not...
When One Member Suffers

The Director's Chair

Thou Art With Me
Published
A couple of years ago, while my husband and I were in Missouri visiting our friends, Kirk and Beth, they took us to see Meramec Caverns. I have to say that while I do not generally like small narrow places, I do like caves and I have been to a few in...
The Challenges That We Face

As long as we live in this world, we are going to be faced with challenges and not one human being is immune to this. Not a single one. The form of these challenges may vary. They may be physical, emotional, mental or a combination of any or all of...
Step Into The Water

The time had come to step into the land that God had promised them and take possession of it. Between them and the land however, there was a barrier, the Jordan River. Now while crossing the river in itself might be a challenge, the Bible tells us...
The Whisper Of Love

More than 45 years have passed and yet the memory of what happened that day is firmly etched in my mind. I could not tell you the date but I can take you to the place and point to the spot where I heard the whisper of love. I had heard about it...
The Long Detour
Published
I blinked when my husband told me what he believed that God wanted him to start graduate school in September 2013 so that he could get his Master of Divinity and serve as a hospital chaplain. The chaplain part did not surprise me. When my husband and...
But Even Though...

My family has been going through a great deal as of emotional turmoil over the past few months and quite honestly my pain and grief has been so great at times that I have wondered if I would ever smile again, let alone laugh. It is one thing when...
Living On The Claim

Why Not Me?

"Why me?" It is a question all victims of cancer eventually find themselves asking. They ask themselves why some of their own cells suddenly are not behaving like, well, all the other trillions of cells in their bodies. They ask themselves...
And Then Came The Morning!

It was the darkest of all moments. All hopes and dreams had been dashed to pieces. The love story had been turned into an unimaginable horror story and as far as those who had witnessed it were concerned it was all over. It was done. We can only...
