Some dear friends sang this beautiful song during our service yesterday morning. I just had to share it with you. After leaving there, Jesus went along the shore of Lake Galilee. He went up on a hill and sat there. Great crowds came to Jesus, bringing with them the lame,... Continue reading

Just for fun, I flipped open my handy dandy Thesaurus just to see which word popped out for today. The first word my eyes fell upon was the word - plain. Definitions for plain are: 1. Clear or distinct to the eye or ear. 2. Clear to the mind; evident,... Continue reading

She stood looking out the window. Unable to understand the scene below. The beginning of days that would change her tender two year old heart from carefree to anxious. As years passed, she looked back on that day and the weeks that followed as the source of her fear. She... Continue reading

In the beginning . . . God spoke and things happened. Big things. Indescribable things. Things beyond our explanation or comprehension.

Our church had its first annual Reformation Sunday yesterday. It was really quite wonderful. Paul gave a lecture on Martin Luther and his part in the Protestant Reformation.

First of all, I would be remiss if I did not provide the link to Paul's Reformation Sunday message. Secondly, my friend Nahomi just posted her own excellent article.

181. My own teeth! I’m not kidding! Think about it! It’s a good thing that dentures are available and that the dentures of seniors who move into our long-term care center receive identification upon admission. We’ve found dentures left on dining room tables, carefully wrapped in Kleenex and thrown into... Continue reading

Janice and I don’t usually sit around laughing about bugs (even thinking too long about them makes us squirm.) But when the folks at Raid® asked us to host a fabulous giveaway for TWO $500 Walmart Gift Cards, we decided we’d open up and laugh about our phobias. So here’s... Continue reading

Does talking about the Commandments make you nervous? Proud? Do you have one or two that you just don't think apply anymore? Or do you go down the list and think to yourself, "Hmm, I'm doing a pretty good job?" More than likely we are each guilty of one or... Continue reading
