Hope from a Stump

Last spring, we noticed something odd growing in the middle of our crape myrtle tree. This particular tree is on the side of our house where we hardly ever play or walk, so we hadn’t paid much attention to it in the 6 months we had lived here. If you know crape myrtles, you know […]

Did You Bring Me Out Here to Die?

How many times have we said, “I think I’m gonna die!”? Most of us have used that phrase at the end of a long run, in the middle of a spinning class, after every Thanksgiving meal, after an all-nighter with a newborn, in the middle of VBS week, or at the end of August when […]

The Houston Chronicle featured the moving story of a young woman persecuted for her Christian faith.  Sixteen-year-old Julie Afab was working in an office in Pakistan.  A man who came to the office was offended by the silver cross she wore around her neck and asked her, “Are you a Christian?”  When she answered, “Yes, sir”, […]

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 “Ladies and Gentlemen we are sorry for the delay but it seems we cannot start the engines.” Those are […]

3 Things to Remember in Facing Your Fears

One of my favorite scenes in Indiana Jones occurs at the end of the Last Crusade. Indiana Jones comes to the edge of a cliff with no way forward. He glances to the side, but there is no way around. He rereads the clue that tells him that only a leap will prove his worth. He knows he […]

Because Sunday’s Coming

On this Maundy Thursday, we pause to remember the Last Supper between Jesus and His disciples. Many around that table had no idea what the next 24 hours would bring.  But, I often wonder what was going through the hearts and minds of those who loved Jesus as they stood watching, possibly feeling hopeless and […]

If My Work All Day Goes Unnoticed, Did It Really Matter?

We all know the age-old question, “If a tree falls in the middle of the forest, does it make any noise?” What is really being asked is this, “If something happens and a person does not see it, did it really happen?” Many days, this is a question that is unconsciously dancing in the back […]

Go Ahead…Pierce Those Ears!

“He shall take him (the servant) to the door or the doorpost and pierce his ear with an awl Then he will be his servant for life.” Exodus 21:6b At 14, I went to live with my father and stepmother. My stepmother and I barely knew each other. In an effort to bond we thought […]
