Unto Us A Child Is Born

“For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.” Isaiah 9:6-7a(NIV) I love Christmas. Friends, family,…

Thank God for…Something

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 It’s that time of year again, pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, sweaters, pumpkin’s on sweaters—not to mention pilgrim’s and family traditions.

Box of Memory

Have you ever had those things in your life that you really want to remember? You know, it’s like those happy feelings that you never want to forget. Some of us might have more memories we want to remember than others, but we all have them. How about those things you don’t want to remember….

Grapes Are Delicious

I love grapes! Growing up grapes and cheese had been the family staple of long trips. During those long trips I loved my family, long car rides, the scenery, but especially the snacks. Grapes are juicy and sweet but need a lot of tender, love, and care (tlc) before they are ready to be picked….

What Do You See?

How many of you want to see God’s glory? If you look at the scenery around you, or you look at how particular God has made the human body and mind, you might think “how exquisite,” or you may be left in awe never really thinking anything besides how awesomely created the world is. I…

The Simple Message of Salvation

Ephesians 2:8-9 says, For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Salvation is that simple. It is not according to what we do to attain to God but it is…
