A tribute to special mothers

 Mother's Day is a day we get to celebrate and honor mothers. Romans 13:7 says, "Give honor to whom honor is due."  Mothers do deserve honor; the responsibility of raising children is an awesome task and much of the time unappreciated. For those very special mothers of those very special kids I want to especially recognize and salute those incredible mothers that have the privilege of raising and caring for a child with special needs, either with some kind of...

It’s Spring! Why we need to get outside in the sun

  God's word says many things about the seasons.  Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, verse 1 says,  "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven".  The bible uses seasons to serve as a metaphor for our lives.  Spring is my favorite season because it represents growth and the springing up of new things! If you live in the northern half of the United States, you know it's been a very long, cold, snowy, dreary, winter.  Can...

No fear of the future

Do you get anxious about the future? Do you fear the unknown? You don't have to! We have a God who holds the future in HIS hands!!   Consider the words to this beautiful hymn: God sent His son, they called Him Jesus, He came to love, heal, and forgive;  He lived and died to buy my pardon, An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives. Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, because He lives all fear...

Dawn on Ormond Beach

Whenever we are away, I love to get up before dawn and sit with my bible as the sun comes up. It's such a quiet, calming, peaceful time.  For me, there is nothing like it.  To take in the majesty and beauty of God's creation and the realization that God gives us a new beginning every day is just awesome.  The peace we can experience when we do this is perfect for just sitting before the LORD with NO DISTRACTIONS...

El Roi – The God Who Sees

The names of God are so meaningful and can be applied to our lives in such a beautiful and practical way.  In Genesis 16, we see the story of Hagar, the maidservant of Abram and Sarai.  Sarai was becoming impatient waiting to get pregnant and decided to take matters into her own hands. She told Abram to have a child with Hagar to provide a way of Sarai having a child with Abram. But when Hagar conceived, Sarai became jealous...

Mornings

We all strive to be a "Proverbs 31 woman". We want to be that woman described in Proverbs 31:10-31 who does it all and is perfect in character.  Verse 15  says, "She gets up while it is still night", which makes sense; if she wants to accomplish all that is described here, she would have to get up pretty early. The picture here is for her to start her day before any else in the house gets up.  I never...

Should we make New Year’s resolutions?

As the beginning of a new year arrives, most people take the opportunity to make resolutions, which is a good thing, but I have seen that for the most part, resolutions get broken and we get discouraged.  Instead, I am purposing, starting today, to be more disciplined in the areas of bible reading, memorizing, and studying God's word, eating, and exercising.  Notice, I said more disciplined. I am not limiting myself to something specific like, "I will read four chapters...
