Not Just Another Box Turtle

Not Just

Dear Faith Family, For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians, Acts 11:26. A shout out to my kindred spirit friend! Let me explain. You may be aware of my propensity to stop on the side of the road to pick up a bungy cord, or two, or ten. What you may not be aware of is my propensity...

In His Image

In His Image

Dear Faith Family, So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created Him; male and female He created them, Genesis 1:27. What do Tannerite and gender reveal parties have in common?! Apparently, a couple in New Hampshire rocked the house, literally, at a gender reveal party. CBS Boston reported that a couple detonated about 80 pounds of Tannerite! Yikes!...

Learning How to Trust

Learning How to

Dear Faith Family, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths, Proverbs 3:5-6. There is a major difference between lukewarm, day-old, Dr. Pepper and ice-cold, freshly poured Mellow Yellow. Who knew?! Let me explain. Let's say hypothetically, you eat lunch at Arby...

In His Workshop

in his workshop

Dear Faith Family, But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator, (Colossians 3:8-10). Recently a friend of mine gave a desk to me. A...

Longing for Him

Longing

Dear Faith Family, But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. (Philippians 3:20-21) There he was perched on an oak limb just above the deck in our back yard. I heard that they had been seen in th...

The Same Just Different

the same

Dear Faith Family, For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body Jews or Greeks, slaves or free and all were made to drink of one Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13) One of these things is not like the othersOne of these things just do...

I Don't Understand

Dear Faith Family, And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7) I don't understand. Let me back up. Yesterday was a good day. A long day, but a good day. Last night I was tired. As Chuck Swindoll would say, "a good tired". Finally at home, I removed wallet, keys, watch and ring at my de...

Waiting Patiently for Him

waiting

Dear Faith Family, Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! (Psalm 37:7) Anybody else struggle with patience? Like when a 2-hour trip takes 4 hours? Like when you were ready early and the rest of the family, let's just say, not so much? Like when the commercials...

A Fish Dish

Fish

Dear Faith Family, When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate, Genesis 3:6. Microwaves were the latest and greatest. So like any wise husband-to-be, I purchased one for my wife-to-be. Incl...

Real Imitation

imitation

Dear Faith Family, Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1-2) Etched in my mind is a picture of my little girl when she was only a year or two old. She was standing in her cute little onesie outfit in my shoes. My saddle loafers were nearl...
