Excerpts

Waffles and Spaghetti

Men and women are hard-wired differently by their Creator. But different does not mean right or wrong. It just means different.

He Took the Stand

Jesus insured security the day He died upon a tree

Oh, what a Savior we have in Jesus Christ!

Just Not That Into You

I pray the distractions that once pushed You aside

will become less important in our daily lives

and that the things we choose to fill our days

will be things that please You and bring You praise

My King: The Chalice of Tribute

‘Twas a time of the Knight. When quests and fables abound. When man fought to live and lived for conquest. A time of trolls and dragons. Such lore that stirred the heart to seek out the truth.

God Has His Hands On You

You may ask “Lord, why me?” or “Lord, why am I going through this?” Just as He trusted Job to go through, He trusts you, too!

You Can Handle It!

My brothers and my sisters, I may not know the full extent of your circumstances, your situation, or your storm, but God wants you to know that you can handle it!

Simply Being Home

Arriving home was always extra special when I was greeted at the door knowing that “absence makes
the heart grow fonder” on both sides.
