When She Reached for His Cloak, She Touched His Heart

When she reached for His cloak she touched His heart. His response differed radically from the doctors she had visited during the past dozen years. She continued to suffer while her condition deteriorated. They offered no solutions as they continued to demand payment. Desperation drove her through the crowd to Jesus. She had no money. She had no place to worship. She lived...

Good Times

GOOD TIMES Do you remember the show? The sitcom that aired for six seasons from 1973-1979 and featured Jimmie "J.J." Walker also known as "Kid Dyn-o-mite." Another one of my favorites was watching Arthur Fonzarilli on Happy Days. Anyone who could hit a jukebox and make it play music was at the top of my cool list. The past year has been good times and happy days here at ...

Enjoying God's Word

Gus never seemed all that interested in eating. When I filled his bowl with food in the morning, he took a bite or two before retreating to the yard, where he stretched out for a nap. He stayed skinny. Eventually the bowl would empty. I was never sure if he ate during the afternoon or after the sun went down. It seemed that eating, for Gus, was more of a duty than a joy. H...

Great Things Ahead

It is Thursday afternoon and the temperature is going to be almost 80 degrees today. This would not be noteworthy if it was later in the year.

Being the sixth of eight children qualified her to know a lot about siblings and nieces and nephews and such. Babies and small children had been a part of her life all of her life.The pictures in the photo album clearly evidence why s...

Squirrel On A Wire

Squirrel on a Wire He seemed to be out of place. Walking along a thin cable with impeccable balance and probably uncertain as to where his rope would end. Placing four paws carefully one in front of the other and not looking back to the tree from where he had started the journey. He had left a safe, wood-covered appendage that felt right, comfortable and had some leaves t...

Want To

Gus was acting weird. After we flushed a covey of quail, he began lagging behind as Pete led the charge forward. Rather than searching for the scattered birds, Gus seemed content to sit in the background and watch us hunt. He was not gun shy. I made sure of that before I consented to assume ownership of him. He had a good nose. He proved that multiple times as we practiced...

Busy, but Blessed

God has given us a new year! As your pastor, I look forward to serving the Lord with you during the exciting days that are ahead of us. You are a joy to know and serve the Lord with. I actually considered getting a T-shirt made that said, "I pastor a great church!" I thought about doing so after seeing so many of you serve so well in the meeting of the needs of others. I d...
