Faith

I spent this past weekend in the beautiful city of New Orleans.  While there, I took a Haunted Spirit tour which included a visit to the grave of Marie Laveau. If you are unfamiliar with her, she was a Voodoo priestess in New Orleans.  To this day, people visit her tomb, leaving offerings....more

How My Children Make Me Pay Attention More During Prayer and Worship

I'm listening.  I'm waiting.  I am just being still.  Today I went to baseball games and enjoyed the nice weather.  I spilled my pop and listened to a 15yr old couple argue.  I wanted to tell them to stop and breathe in the spring air, look into each others eyes and quit worrying about the little stuff.  It made me wonder if I needed to hear that.  Did I make a mistake?  Had I left my marriage to early?  Did I sweat the small stuff?  Was I too hung up on the details and I didn't trust God to take care of me so I took care of it myself? ...more

Praying

So much of our news is immediate and for some reason the bad news travels even faster.  We hear about illnesses, hospitalizations, accidents, and deaths within minutes or hours by means of cell phones, texts, or the internet.  The degree of separation from the people involved may temper our immediate reaction, but deep down there is a need to help in any way possible....more
