Over the past few weeks Jaime Jamgochian's rendition of the song "The Stand" has been played quite frequently over the local radio station I listen to. I've loved that song from the first moment I heard it years ago by Michael W....
When You're In The Heat Of The Battle Remember...
Published
Earlier this evening, I took a peek at some of my blogs which had recent views from other websites. To my surprise, I saw one which I published back on March 2, 2009 exactly one year after my first chemo infusion hit me full force. The blog is...
St. Augustine's Pears

In Confessions which was written about 397 A.D., St. Augustine shares this account from his teenage years. Near our vineyard there was a pear tree laden with fruit that was not attractive in either flavor or form. One night, when I [at the age of...
A Winter Wonderland
Published
I awakened this morning to a world that was transformed from an ugly brown into the winter wonderland you see in the picture. By the way, the object to the right in the picture is not a bush. It is the limb from a tree which usually is high in the sky...
Love Means Wanting To Say I'm Sorry
Published
There is a well known phrase which says Love means never having to say I'm sorry. Really? I think that phrase should be rewritten to say Love means wanting to say I'm sorry. Early in our marriage, my husband illustrated this for me...
The Pear Tree: A Native American Tale

While doing some research for another blog, I came across a short video of a Native American tale about a pear tree. Please take a couple of minutes to watch this tale entitled "The Pear Tree". This tale struck a chord with me. I do not know...
Everywhere I Go I See You

As I was reading a comment in one of my blogs earlier this morning, I got to thinking once again about the things in life that really matter. While I have, over the years tried to focus on those things, the events in my life over the past three years...
What Are You Willing To Lose For The Sake Of The Gospel?

The second year of the ministry of Jesus Christ is often referred to as "The Year of Popularity". This period of His ministry was marked by healing healing and miracles. Great crowds of people flocked to see Jesus, not only to hear him teach...
Am I Living Up To God's Expectations?
Published
Earlier this morning I saw a blog title which asked the question, is Jesus living up to your expectations. I thought about that for a moment before turning the question around and asking myself, "Am I living up to God's expectations?"....
My Father's Hands
Published
It was early morning but my dad was already up with his drawing board on his lap. How I loved to watch my dad draw! My drawings were dismal affairs but my dad could take a blank piece of paper and within moments, something wonderful would appear...
And In The Meantime...

It started out as an ordinary day. David was out tending his father's sheep just like he had done hundreds of times. Yet this day would be like no other. He had awakened that morning as an obscure shepherd boy, the least of his brothers. When he...
Be Careful What You Do
Published
Something I read the other day reminded me of how important it is for us as Christians to be extremely careful about what we participate in or endorse. Practices which we may think are harmless and even beneficial often are not. It pays for us to not...
The Anchor Holds
Published
A comment made by Savedbyegrace (aka Gracie) left on a recent blog of mine (Let The Wind Roar) made me think about another blog I wrote so long ago back on March 4, 2008 called This Little Boat Is Still Sailing On. This had been my first attempt to...

The Miracle Of Life

When You Walk Through The Fire You Will Not Be Burned

...When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2 (NIV) Often times we think of fire as destructive and it most certainly can be. Yet at the same time, fire provides us with life-giving warmth...
Do We Really Want To Be Where Jesus Is?
Published
There's a very nice song by Don Moen which we used to sing a church a number of years go. The lyrics are: I just want to be where You are, dwelling daily in Your presence I don't want to worship from afar, draw me near to where You are I just...
What God Has Promised
Published
As I was going through a box of things today, I came across a card a friend from church had sent me nearly three years ago. It was entitled, "God's Promises To You:" As I read these promises, tears filled my eyes for I can definitely say...
Behind The Mask
Published
A frequent accusation "the World" hurls at Christians is that we are all a bunch of hypocrites. Exactly where do we get that word "hypocrite"? The word "hypocrite" comes from the Greek word, "hypokrites" which...

Afraid And Yet...

When we first meet this man, he seems like an unlikely choice to lead an army against a powerful enemy. He is secretly threshing wheat in the bottom of a wine press in order to hide it from the Midianites. He seems like an unlikely hero and yet The...
The Hands And Feet Of Christ
Published
He turned seven last summer, but he is already far older than what many of us can imagine. He is homeless. I've had homeless students in my classroom before and each time my heart aches terribly for the trouble in their lives. We often think of...

I Just Forgot...

My neurosurgeon tells me it that it takes time for the brain to recover after a stroke. Even if the damage is minimal, it takes time, years in fact and often there is never a full recovery. I am one of the lucky ones. I didn't have to have...
