Jesus is Cool...

I don't know about you, but I don't think I could sit down and have a heart to heart with the people in this picture-

To be honest, some of His Followers do give me the creeps...especially some of those on TV.

Upon reflection, I realize, my judgement, must give Jesus the creeps.

God, please teach me how to be an approachable disciple. Someone that draws other people to Him and doesn't judge others that are trying to do the same thing.

Grace and Peace

The Promise...

Yesterday, I was contacted by different people with concerns about...earthquakes, fires, miscarriages, cancer, alcoholism, doctor's appointments,mental illness, theft, finances and fear.

God's response-do not think for one moment that HE is not still on the Throne!Remember the rainbow? God's promise for provision, protection and hope-

He meant it forever....not just the first sunny day on an ark.

"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" 2 Timothy 1:17

God, may we remember, the rainbow is not just pretty colors, it has great meaning and promise for us all. All thanks be unto You!

Grace and Peace,

Dive in...

The long awaited rains
My heart is racing and my knees are weak
As I walk to the edge,
I know there is no turning back
Once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice,
That's telling me its time to take the leap of faith
So here I go,
I'm diving in
Im going deep in over my head I want to be
Caught in the rush
lost in the flow in over my head I want to go
The rivers deep, the rivers wide, the river's water is alive
So sink or swim Im diving in
But we will never know the awesome power Of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away
Into this holy flood
So if you'll take my hand
We'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go!
Grace and Peace,

First Trophy...

Working for your first trophy is a very serious business

you have to have fun...

all the while keeping your head in the game

and when the coveted prize arrives,

you must stop what you are doing and enjoy it.

Then, you gotta get back in the game...

But remember we are not designed to run alone

Every once in a while...

when you succeed, God "gets you a milkshake"

Thank you God, for all of the "trophies" in my life-

Grace and Peace,

Roller Coaster...

From where I watched, there were no worries.
She was was her baby doll.
However, from where she sat, it was a little rocky and scary.

Isn't that how God looks upon our concerns, our worries, our fears.

There we roll along...worrying, He watches and knows there is no cause for worry. He is still on the throne and in charge.

Thank you God for your constant watching-please remind us that you never take your eyes off us. There is not one second that we are not being watched, ever so carefully by You.

Grace and Peace,

False Advertising?





The shirt I am wearing today has the above reminder.

It has been interesting...when people ask me...I am quick to tell them what it says....
however, I am slow to act like I mean it.
God- thank you for still loving me although I am a work in progress...

Grace and Peace,

Got it?

So, in the "Got Milk" campaign, the symbol was the black and white sign-
and a white upper lip- when you saw that, you knew....They HAD MILK.

As Christians what is our sign? What do they see on me or on you.
What shows the world...we got it?
I am so quick to forget, that I am marked as His.
I pray that on me, they see LOVE above all else...
that they see PATIENCE...that they see FAITH...and HOPE.
I thank you God, for your constant
Grace and Peace,

Town Lake...

Somehow on "hectic" Mondays...I forget about about the "slower" Saturdays and Sundays-
funny, it was only yesterday.

Happy Peanut...

So this is Kate- and yes, she is always this happy-
As a matter of fact, this is how fired up she was, just to head into her hot backyard and get strapped into this buggy!

Jesus Himself said- "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the fullest." John 10:10

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am pretty sure Kate gets the message.
Now, I am hoping she will pass it on to the rest of us-

Grace and Peace,

The Foundry...

So, I stopped by our new coffee shop "The Foundry."
Not being a coffee drinker, I was concerned about what I would get there....and I was greeted, by my dear old friend- Diet Coke. (Which I consider the breakfast of champions.)
I was pleasantly surprised at how handy this place might become for me. There is so much to do there...
Have a meeting...

catch up with a friend...

bring your kids!

get served with style!
get served by a stud!
Starbucks WHO?!?!
Come by and take a picture of some flowers...while people actually work in the background.
Stop by and write a sermon, or act like you you are working...

Chat with a pastor in a baseball hat...
Cindy will be happy to sell you....

drip coffee, A latte, frappucino...don't worry we have been trained!

Hungry? Me about some fresh fruit?

Cap'n Crunch more your style?

muffins, bagels, croissants, cupcakes, brownies or cake!

I Am Game...

These statues crack me up...
I love that that they know He is out there with them!
May we all know He is in the game with us today-
wherever we are and whatever we are "playing"-
