    Hurricanes, Floods, and Earthquakes

    Sun, Sep 10, 2017
    The last few weeks, newspaper headlines have been limited to the news of hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes.  Thousands upon thousands of people have been displaced, lost their homes, or somehow been affected by the storms.  Each of the hurricanes came with warning.  People were told to get ready.  For some this meant, milk, bread, toilet paper.  For others, their response ...
     

    Promises

    Sat, Sep 2, 2017
    It would be safe to say that most of us have made promises.  And I’m sure that promises have been made to you.  Some have been kept, and some haven’t. There are man’s promises . . . and then there are God’s promises. God does not forget what He promised. He never changes His mind. He will not go back on ...
     

    Missing the Point

    Sat, Sep 2, 2017
    he Book of Acts is filled with incredible demonstrations of the power of God.  In Acts 1, Jesus ascends into heaven.  Acts 2, the Holy Ghost is poured out on 120 believers.  On and on, miracle after miracle is recorded.  One that stands out to me is found in Acts 8.  God has sent Philip to Samaria, where God does ...
     

    Weak

    Sun, Aug 20, 2017
    I recently read an article, actually, it was someone’s testimony.  They were sharing a period in their life that was extremely traumatic. They had lost someone that they were very close to and that was very young.  It was causing them to question so many things.  The same day that this happened was a Wednesday.  It was difficult but they ...

    In The Extreme

    Sun, Jul 30, 2017
    Have you noticed how the generation that we are in right now, likes to take everything to the edge?  Constantly, living on the edge.  Even television reflects this desire for risky behavior.  There are shows like X-Factor, American Ninja Warrior and Spartan Races, just to name a few.  They get a rush by taking on seemingly insurmountable challenges and beating ...
     

    Legacy

    Sat, Jul 29, 2017
    Are there stories in scripture that inspire you every time that you read them.  I have one.  In Samuel, when he writes about David’s mighty men. The scripture tells us that when the others ran from the Philistines, Shammah was willing to defend his ground.  It was a field full of lentils (lentils are in the same category as peas). Yet, ...

    Not A Chef

    Sun, Jun 11, 2017
    Just in case there is any doubt, I want to clear something up, I am not now, nor will I every a a master chef, or even an amateur cook. However, every now and then I do prepare a meal. Usually, my specialty involves a crock pot and two or three ingredients. Let’s just say that I’m not expecting an ...
     

    Her Hands

    Mon, May 15, 2017
    © Maggie Pittman Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath. Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step. Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall. Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all. Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten ...
