A Prayer

Somehow, some way, we've all felt it. We've experienced it, either directly or indirectly. We have used and successfully walked away, or we are still using. Some of us can control the substances in our lives, many of us cannot. Many have recognized their struggle and have addressed it, many more have not. Still, we... Continue Reading →

Strength In Numbers

What once discouraged me now excites me! Conversations that were once a stumbling block for me, have now become an exciting opportunity. I was raised in a very legalistic denomination. I had friends that were from other denominations, but when I asked questions about what they believed and why, I became confused. Many of them... Continue Reading →

Right Answer, Wrong Prayer

When I was in college I took a beginning photography class. I had always loved photography, and even did some freelance work for friends and family. I remember working in a 24-hour photo developing store at a local shopping mall. I am not old by any means, but I remember mixing chemicals in order to... Continue Reading →


As I looked through photographs and artwork trying to find the most appropriate image for the subject of my blog post, I found the one above and I couldn't scroll past it. I do realize the irony of writing an electronic blog post about bondage while showing an image of a man bound to his... Continue Reading →

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

Writing and publishing my own books was an exciting opportunity for me! Granted, I hired someone else to edit and format the finished products, but I learned many things I never really considered before, like how books are printed and that there are agents for writers, not only for singers and actors. In the process... Continue Reading →

Wind Chimes

At times, my children have asked how I know our heavenly Father has spoken to me. They've asked me how he has given messages. Our Lord has expressed himself through a timely song on a radio, or through a comment someone made that I knew deep inside of my spirit was from him. Often when... Continue Reading →

Wrestling, Part 1

In an interview I listened to on the radio years ago, the guest of honor said if God was going to use one in a specific area, he would make that one experience it personally first. Those who have not experienced difficult struggles cannot fully empathize with those who have. The "hard way" seems to... Continue Reading →

Isn’t That Faith?

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1, KJV The afternoon sun was high in the sky, making the air hot and sticky. There was a grove of trees on the west side of the field, and they were just tall enough to give me some... Continue Reading →

He Was Ready, Nobody There

There has been quite a bit of time since my last blog post. For this one, I had to make absolutely sure I had the Lord's permission to share it. I believe he gave me his approval because God wants to comfort his people regarding their loved ones who are nearing death. When I experienced... Continue Reading →

Oh Deer!

The picture above this post is beautiful! I wish I had taken it, but the few pictures I took were much closer! I mentioned in previous posts that I worked as an agronomist for several years. One would expect to see wildlife in that line of work. In 2020 however, I often saw at least... Continue Reading →
