  • A true account of faith and forgiveness

    For those of you that have never heard of a woman named Corrie Ten Boom and her remarkable family, it is truly a heart-breaking account of courage and sacrifice.

    We begin our story with Cornelia (nicknamed Corrie) who was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, in 1892. She was raised in a devoted Christian atmosphere and lived in a large house above her father’s business where he was a jeweler and watch maker. This loving family believed in demonstrating their spiritual convictions by offering shelter, food and help to anyone in need.

  • A rainy day

    Lately we’ve had a bit of rain and listening to people talk about the weather can be interesting. For example, if someone has to drive in the rain they may hate it.  The next person may be trying to raise a garden, and they need the rain.  A little kid may love splashing in the mud, but her mom hates cleaning up all the mud that gets tracked in.

    Different people experience the same thing different ways, we all get that.  But what about the way we react sometimes?  Think about a rainy weekend.

  • When life doesn’t make sense

    There are times we become confused and will not be able to figure out a way to solve our problems. Life is not always a smooth interstate and it’s good to remember that God is with us when we encounter unexpected roadblocks and detours.

    In these stressful situations, we can know that delays do not necessarily mean denial, but could be an opportunity for us to stretch our faith and learn more about trusting God.

  • Consider the lightning bug

    I hope you’ve seen all the lightning bugs lighting up the fields and yards the past couple of weeks. There seem to be more this year than the last few years, which is a good thing.

    Do you remember catching lightning bugs and putting them in a jar as a kid?  I think we all did that at some point.  A few lightning bugs, a little grass for them to eat, and there was magic in a bottle.  Except they usually didn’t last long. Who knew lightning bugs don’t eat grass?  They are carnivores, eating worms and snails.

  • Passing a white glove inspection

    More years ago than I care to think about, I was in the Marine Corps.  Part of serving in the military is undergoing inspections; it was a regular thing.  Most units I served had daily inspection and formation just to make sure we showed up and looked presentable.  Then there were weekly inspections in the work area and in the barracks.  Those inspections were not really much of a problem.
