It's not the donuts telling people about Christ.
It's you.
It's me.
It's what we are doing.
It's what we are saying.
It's how we are acting.
It's how we are re-acting.

We are the billboards for Him.

God, Thank you for the reminder, the challenge and the honor.

Pressing On...

"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil 3:14

Some days "pressing on" is easier than others...
For me the heat and lack of schedule, in summertime always challenges me in this area.

Reading this scripture, reminded me that God knew....long, long, long ago...
that you and I would need the encouragement.

At the end- (although this picture is cheesy) He waits.
God, Thank You for Your constant encouragement and steadfast love.

His Hands...

Try and remember today...that although you and I may not physically see Him...
That does not negate the fact that He has His Eye on us.
More comforting than that He has His Hands on us.
They WILL strengthen and uphold us.
As He has proven time and time again.
God, thank You, for consistently turning my fear into peace.

Elvis is in The Bedroom...

So, I am sitting with a friend while she recovers from minor surgery...
and by recovers I mean, tries to sleep. The room is cool, dark and quiet...there are a few of us whispering. We were discussing important earth shattering things, you know like, why it is hotter than the depths of hell outside and where exactly is Michael Jackson's body.

All of a sudden there is a noise in the bathroom....kind of a shuffling stomping...humming....
I open the door to find this.
Big Mike D....preparing for something....
There was a backpack and a Barney book
But soon, there was Elvis...
and apparently a Michael Jackson in the early days wig.
pretty pleased with himself.
But I had seen nothing...yet.

This busted into the bedroom....
Dance moves that would have made Ed Sullivan shake.....

but wait, there's more...a dedication.
He then dedicates a song to his mama.
"Hope you feel better Ma'am..I'm gonna sing "I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night, by KISS."
After's hard to help people
God, Thank You for loving us just because we are Your's.

No getting around it.

Tell me about your work…
Hmmmm….that ought to be interesting.

Let’s see, so far today...
I spent more time on Facebook then I did reading my Bible.
I honked at two old people that didn’t take off fast enough when the light turned green.
Made an off color comment about someone with “bad hair”.

It is just 6:30 AM.
Good times.

“What will I do when God confronts me?
What will I answer when God calls to account?”
~Job 31:14

God, Thank you for Your Amazing Grace .

I was reminded today that God is in the details....

The book you happened to pick up...
The phone call, email or text, at just the right time....

The happenstance of your paths crossing after 20 years....

What we see as coincidence, is really

A Powerful God

An Omniscient God.

An Omnipresent God.

A Humble God, patiently waiting for you and me, to notice Him.

God, thank you for knitting together the moments of our lives when we are "wow-ed" by "coincidence." Please give us the wisdom and insight to recognize You. Thank you for never taking your eyes off of us.

Who is Watching You?

Somebody is always watching...
I have a fish on the back of my car...
a cross on my finger....
a cross around my neck...
usually something on my shirt that indicates that I am a Follower of Christ...
Hmmm, I guess I need to start paying a little closer attention to how I am living.
I might be the only Bible someone opens today.
So might you.
God, thank you for the awesome responsibility and privilege that comes with following You. Please show me where I can do a better job.

July 6...

This blog has been hijacked by Weezie...

Forty-two years ago at 4:15 in the afternoon, prayers were answered...a beautiful little girl was born. With dark curly hair, great big dark blue eyes with tons of lashes, a tiny button nose and the normal ten toes and ten fingers.
With tears of happiness, joy and a loss of eight pounds and six ounces..this mother was beaming from ear to ear. Look what the Lord has given us!!!!
Oh how blessed this family became....that little girl has grown into the most beautiful lady.
She spends her days making this world a better place to live in and life so much more fun.
The sun is brighter and our world is filled with laughter daily.
So, I think God for this young lady and the absolute joy, happiness, and pride she has brought to this family.

Holy Cow...

I just heard Michael Jackson referred to as....the Prince of Peace.


It served as a reminder me that there is ONE PRINCE OF PEACE.
So often, I put someone or something else in His Place.

God, thank you for providing Your Son. Our one and only provision for true peace and contentment. Let me never settle for any less.
