Don’t Look Back

Early in February, I read through Hebrews in The One Year Bible. I am not reading it on the book’s schedule, but I always seem to be on God’s schedule. I enjoyed reading Hebrews 11, so I decided to try to memorize it. It is a great way to meditate on Scripture. As I commit... Continue Reading →

Pay Close Attention!

The older I get, the more I can see how their presence impacted my life. As a kid and a teenager, I loved to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. They... Continue Reading →

Setting the Anchor Watch

Never before have I needed to so purposely anchor myself to the truth and my hope in Jesus Christ. My concerns for my country and the future have been at the forefront, this week.

Dressing For Action

I need new work boots and jeans. The road trip I have been planning has been cancelled, for entirely non-COVID-related reasons, and God has put a fresh idea in my mind.
