Random Questions From a 4 Year Old

July 17, 2013

Happy Birthday! “And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth.” Luke 2:6 “When is Jesus’ birthday?” was recently asked by my daughter. Good question for a variety of reasons. Of course, with my daughter, one question is always followed by another question! So her next question was, “Why don’t we know exactly when Jesus was born?” Sometimes, it is the innocence of youth that rocks your world! It made me start thinking. My father was…

Father’s Day In The Dominican Repubic

July 17, 2013

Ahhh Father’s Day…my 7th one to experience as a father last Sunday. Great day, and one in which I was reminded of how blessed I am. With the arrival of our sweet BrynnLee a couple months ago, three children now live under our roof. At any given time, one can hear the sounds of giggling, squealing, hollering, crying and any other myriad of sounds that can be imagined. Honestly, it’s wild and crazy in our house most of the time….

Grant Me Your Eyes

July 17, 2013

The question was simple: “Where is your bathroom?” The question didn’t even make me look up. The answer, however, got my full attention: “Our bathroom is out of order.” We were on a road trip and had stopped at a gas station to fill up the tank, grab a snack and take a potty break. The reason the station attendant’s answer gave me pause was because my husband had just used their restroom. It was fully functional two minutes ago….

I Purpose To Be Absolutely His

July 17, 2013

So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:33 I’m confident that I didn’t understand all that was required when I came to faith in Christ at the young age of six.  All I knew at that time was that I wanted the benefit of knowing for sure I’d be in heaven one day.  I had no clue what Jesus was demanding from me if I was to be…

Lay Up For Yourselves Treasures in Heaven…

July 17, 2013

Few books have made as big an impact on my life (outside of the Bible) like Randy Alcorn’s book, The Treasure Principle. It’s a book I try to reread again every year or so. As the subtitle states, the book will challenge you to discover the secret to joyful giving. Without question for me, I had a great example of what it means to be a joyful giver. As a child I watched my father, without any hesitation, give over…

Grateful

July 17, 2013

There are so many things to be thankful for. Here’s a few things to think about… Being born in this country (we had no say where we were born or to whom we were born–it was the gracious gift of God). Having a wonderful home (1.3 billion people around our world are living without adequate shelter). Our health and access to healthcare (there are 1.5 billion people who have no access to medical care). Adequate clothing (1.4 billion people are…
