Through Thick and Thin


Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12:2 Hayfield came down the other day.  At least part of it.  We split the harvest with the farmer up the road who has his cows. He’s got the equipment. We’ve got the grass. His cows and our horses need fed during the long stretch of frozen Wisconsin fields.  “Can’t cut it all today. Gonna rain. Can only cut what

At the End of My Rope and What Came Next


So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 I have a love/hate relationship with spiritual growth.  Actually, I prefer to do things I love.  I prefer to do things I’m good at. If spiritual growth were easy all the time, I’d be cool. But when I’m stretched

As For Me and My House

As For Me and My House


How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7   With so much bad news delivered every day, ever feel in need of something uplifting?  Me too. When I think about all the problems in our lives and our world, I wonder. What can I do? Early this morning, my Morgan

What are We Waiting For?


Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 A continuation from Monday’s post . . . Back to Benghazi, which is just a reflection of reality, now . . . Hate spreading hate.  Violence spreading violence. I’m not trying to incite hatred or violence by bringing up this subject. But may I kindly ask what’s stirring in your own heart

Why?

Why?


Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Why? What’s the answer? I wonder. Consider the whole story of life, starting with a snippet . . . Watched a movie last night about the tragedy in Benghazi, four years ago, two months before the presidential election. 13 Hours.   (Click on the 13 hours above and receive a free trip

Peace on Earth


  Never thought I’d see the day.  Not in my lifetime.  Just heard from a friend that an organization for which she works will never “make it” in a particular community because her organization employs devoted Christians in high positions, though it’s not a Christian organization, though it serves people of all faiths and all persuasions. Seriously? A high level employee of another organization had the audacity to state such an opinion openly, screaming discrimination

Massacres and Scepters


Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:  Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!  Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the

When You Don’t Get What You Want


I’ll admit it right here for the whole world (or at least my tiny slice of cyberspace) . . . I’m not exactly happy about the fact that God hasn’t answered some of my prayers the way I’d have liked.  In fact, I’ve been more than a little ticked about hearing “No” or “Not now” from time-to-time when I’ve prayed in earnest. Sometimes I feel like God is downright unfair.  (Notice I said feel?  I

Sudden Storm


Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.  He stilled the storm to a whisper. Psalm 107:28-29   The weather was near perfect all day Sunday.  Sunny blue skies dappled with puffy white clouds.  Early evening, we were enjoying an al fresco dinner on our Tuscan terrace covered with grapevines just leafing out. Anna, our 24 year-old and oldest, shared about a llama she saw

How to Stop the Erosion and Fortify Your Soul

How to Stop the Erosion and Fortify Your Soul


If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14    I’m sitting on the shore of Lake Michigan this morning.  All is calm.  But water levels are higher than they’ve been in years.  The beach is being swallowed whole in certain

Much Mulch


  Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting

Flowering Fields

Flowering Fields


As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.  But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.   Psalm 103:15-18 That woman-child of ours,
