Come See Harvey

Wright Christian Academy Presents Harvey Saturday, May 2, 2009 7:00 pm Just a little personal plug here. Both Charlie and Dillon are in the play. Given the exhausted looks on their faces after five hour practices, daily, I’d say they’ve been working hard. Come on out and join us and support these wonderful kids.

Notso Wordless Wednesdays

I’m breaking all rules of blogging today. This is wordless Wed, and yet, I have words. Lots of them. I’m relaying a story and not engaging in a dialog, and I’m very self indulgently using the word “I” more than “you.”  Even so, I want you to read this. I’m trying to be careful how I…

Coveting My Garden

  My mother covets my garden! Oh my gosh. My mother, my muse. The woman who has gardens that rival any botanical place you can find, and she covets THIS picture above. It seems neither she, nor my aunt, can get sweet potato vine to grow like I can. They want to know my secret….

Understanding Our Identity in Christ

CJ Rapp I AM says, “You Are…” Blog Tour Interview I AM says, “You Are…” Understanding Your Identity in Christ is the first book by Bible teacher and speaker CJ Rapp. Not only does this book explore your rock solid identity in Christ, it also helps the reader identify patterns of thinking that threaten healthy…

Meet CJ Rapp this Sunday

Have you ever been called names, as a kid maybe, or worse, as an adult? I have.   Have you ever received these lies as truth? Been there, done that as well. I’ll spare you the gritty details, just know that I have. Okay?  There is an old saying that goes along the lines of “sticks and…

Hope that Overflows.

Three cool things happened to me this weekend. 1. After I had shared the details of my week with some friends, they told me that God (through the Holy Spirit) had impressed me on their hearts for prayer earlier in the week and did not know why. – He already had people praying for me…

Prayer Journals

I tell my Sunday School class to keep a prayer journal. Prayer Journals are a way for us to communicate with God. It gets stuff out of my head and down on paper and that act alone can take away the sting of a situation and provide clarity. Prayer journals also help me keep an…

I Got Nothing…

Have you ever had one of those weeks where by Friday you did not want to handle one more phone call, one more email, or one more person at the door? That is me this week. I chewed out my son’s principal, only to find out that I did not have the whole story. At…

Love In Action, Debt free.

“Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.” Romans 13:8 NIV This is my memory verse for the next two weeks.  When memorizing scripture, the first thing I do is look at the context in several translations. Seeing the context gives…

Ablaze Church Egg Hunt 2009

Everyone is asking how our Egg Hunt went. It went great. Or at least that is what the families who came, told us. Was it a long day? Yes. Being a mobile church is not always easy. We have to set up and tear down every week. The great thing though is how happy and…

Why Do I Hope? – Easter

I do not particularly like the powerpoint that goes with the song but I love the song.  Newsong – Can’t keep a good man down. What song speaks to you?

A Few of my Favorite Things

I promise you, I have no intention of grabbing a guitar, jumping on my bed and singing about raindrops or kittens ala Julie Andrews today. There is enough violence in the world without my tuneless singing.. I do however want to share with you some of my newly discovered favorite places to be or people to…
