  • The trails we are leaving behind

    Today as I was walking the dog, I noticed these tiny, glittering tracks on the sidewalk. I guess the rain last night coaxed the worms out to cross the sidewalks and they left these glistening trails. Who would have thought that worms would leave such beautiful signs?

  • Rendering unto God

    In Mark chapter 12, starting in verse 13, we read how once again the Pharisees and others are trying to trap Jesus with words. You think they would’ve learned by now. But they asked Jesus a very hot political question of the time. “Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar?” The reason for this question is simple. The Jewish people hated this tax. It symbolized everything Rome stood for. In essence, they were paying taxes on a land God had given to them for free. On the other hand, since it was occupied by Rome, they had to pay taxes.

  • Everything is backwards

    When I was a kid I remember my Father used to play this game with me when we rode along in the car. It wasn’t like count the license plates from different states or anything, no his idea of fun was a little more off the wall. We had to read signs backwards.

  • Adoption strengthened faith
  • Stay attached to the Vine

    Read John 15:1-8

    God’s Word is full of imagery depicting the relationship that Jesus has with all those who are baptized into His name.

    Some examples of that imagery are: Jesus is the Groom and the church is His bride, Jesus is the head of the body and we are the parts of the body, Jesus is the Shepherd and we are the sheep, Jesus is the vine and all who are united to him in faith are the branches.

  • Fitting it back together

    Everybody’s done it from time to time, you drop that plate or glass and suddenly you hear that awful crash. What was once whole, useful and maybe even pretty, now lies broken and shattered on the ground. What a mess!

    We bought this beautiful handmade vase once, and before we even got it home it was in two or three pieces. I did my best to glue the pieces in place, but you can tell. I can see it right now from my desk. We keep the unbroken side turned out, but turn it just a little and you can’t miss the cracks.
