Little Things Play Big Roles

“Sometimes the little things in life mean the most.” Ellen Hopkins Last year I got a new laptop. In the space of time between the old one and the new, technology moved forward from USB plugs and ports to USB-C. When I located the adapter to bridge the gap between a USB thumb drive and […]

Time for a Heart Check-up

Be free from pride-filled opinions…Don’t allow self-promotion hide in your hearts, but in authentic humility put others first as more important than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 TPT) Like an echocardiogram for the spiritual heart, Paul wants the Philippians to check for prideful opinions and self-promoting in theirs. With these two things in mind, it’s time for […]

Jordan & Egypt – Week 2: Visiting Egypt

This was not our first visit to Egypt. Way back in 1984, we toured the country but this time some new things were on the agenda. The tour started in the southern part of Egypt to visit the colossal statues at Abu Simbel. Hubby saw them; I didn’t. That morning two of our tour buddies […]

Ready for a Renovation

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Jordan & Egypt – Week 1: Visiting Jordan

The trip to Jordan – another one crossed off our travel bucket list. Our local Jordanian guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Our Tauck’s tour director was exceptional because her love for both countries and their people was obvious. The small tour group of eleven people including four ladies from Australia ranged from first-timers with […]

God’s Department of Defense

Frantic barking from the living room jolted us awake at three-ish in the morning. Andy, our mini-Labradoodle alerted us to an enemy on the property. The neighborhood fox was traveling his usual route across the front lawn passing Andy’s lookout post. When he is laying on his cot scanning the view outside the large, living […]

Find Your Oasis

So Jesus said to his disciples, “Come, let’s take a break and find a secluded place where you can rest a while.” Mark 6:31 The Passion Translation When feelings of frustration creep in or frazzled nerves begin to show, what do you do to get into God’s presence to find peace? Is it a walk […]
