I wrote about the older brother in the prodigal son story a couple of months ago, but after a really good message in church from my pastor this weekend, I’m revisiting this famous story. The prodigal son may be the most telling story in the New Testament. All of us, when we first come to […]

You Feed Them

Circling back around to Jesus feeding of the 5000. I came across something in my reading this week that opened my eyes to a way of looking at this miracle I had never considered. It’s nothing new, since what I read was written in 1975 by William Barclay. But it is new to me, so […]

Standing Still

Sharing some words of wisdom from the savior of the world this morning. I don’t know about you, but I can always use a little more wisdom!! No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those […]

I am With You Always

After three days of writing about a bigger picture some of you might not believe in and I don’t even totally understand, it’s time to write something we can all feel good about! If you knew you were about to leave, and could only say one thing to the people you loved most, what would […]
