  • COLUMN: Be firmly rooted like a tree

    Trees are really amazing creations. As they are coming out of their winter rags and putting on their spring finery, I am amazed anew at their beauty and strength. Bright greens and dark greens, some flowering, some leaving pollen all over my car, but all stretching up as if reaching for the heavens.
    Have you noticed that some trees are stronger than others? Years ago we had some flowering pears, beautiful when blooming, beautiful in shape, but they grew so fast they were easily broken by the wind. Others, like magnolias, have shallow roots that the wind can easily uproot.

  • COLUMN: Life doesn’t always turn out like we expect
  • COLUMN: Lost and found

    Have you ever lost anything and been frantic to find it? The other day I lost a little security tag that turns off the alarm in my car. I searched for it for over an hour. Several friends came by wondering why I was searching my car, so they helped. I had it in my hand, in the car, the door was closed, I bumped the gearshift, heard a clink and it was gone. A few days later I tore that car apart, took out the mats, vacuumed under the seats, checked in all the pockets and cracks I could find. Now the car looks great inside, but that little security tag is still missing.

  • COLUMN: When you know Jesus, it changes everything

    Philippians 3:7-14 says:

  • COLUMN: Invest in your faith in Jesus

    What do you invest in? I know when I say the word investing that most people think about money. And investing for the future and being prepared for life’s little disasters is a good thing, but there is much more to life than money.
    Remember what Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21 NIV). Do you really want your heart wrapped up in your bank account?
