Today we are back for another edition of Women of Numbers filled with more juicy drama. We will be hanging out in Numbers 25 where I’d like to introduce you to Cozbi.I would consider Cozbi one of the bad girls of the Bible.She was a Midianite. The daughter of a tribal chief of one of the enemy nations to Israel.Needless to say she was one of the women who was off limits to the Israelite men....more

An Open Letter Of Deepest Responsibility and Apology

An Open Letter Of Deepest Responsibility and Apology I won't name names, as to who this is for,  I feel that those people will know who this is for and they will read it. This open letter of deepest apology, goes out to so many people, I don't know if I can even begin to name names, I can only share what is on my heart today. I know that this is going to possibly a can of worms, or a door that I may not want to have opened....more

Are you Prideful?

It has become obvious to me that God is working on us as Christians. Last week Pastor James spoke about obedience and this week his sermon topic was about pride. I have said before here that I believe we are in the end times and that Jesus is coming soon! We need to be ready and I think God is working through his pastors and prophets to help us be ready and to make sure we leave no one behind!! I know that Pastor James is listening to the Holy Spirit and making sure we understand what it is God is wanting us to hear and not scaring us with the message....more

Fire like Gossip!

We had several storms here in Green Country this last summer. There were several nights of high winds that took down a lot of tree limbs. There are still a couple of piles in my neighborhood today. Anyway one evening Maggie and I were sitting on the front porch. I was enjoying the evening air and Maggie my faithful companion was busy running back and forth- up and down the fence barking at the cars that go by. I noticed some activity in the yard at the house on the other corner from me. It looked like there was a fire that was just getting started....more

Just what I need!

Last weekend I was watching a movie about a girl that was celebrating her 16 birthday. She and her mother had been on their own for her whole life. Apparently there was some secret about the relationship between her father and her mother before she was born. We find out at the end that his family broke up the relationship. Anyway this movie was about how this girl took off to find her father and build a relationship with him. Turns out he was a Lord something or other in England....more

Jesus' Love

 The last several weeks I have been sitting in on a discipleship class Pastor Rita has been teaching. We were going over the lesson on Baptism. We were talking about being immersed. Rita shared that when it came time to be baptized for Rita and her husband Pastor James she made James go first. Seems Rita has an aversion to the idea of being dunked under water. She is not afraid of water because she rides the jet skies all the time. She shared it was because of the life jacket. She is not afraid when she has her life jacket on....more

It's 2014 - happy New Year!

It is a new year – time for a fresh start! A chance to take stock of what happened last year and what you are looking forward to this year.I decided to make some lists – things I learned last year- things I want to learn this year and a list of things I want to work on this year. I am not really making new year resolutions because I want God to make the changes in me and to lead me where He wants my life to be. So one of the areas I will be working on and spending more time developing is a deeper prayer life with my Father God! Things I learned last year - ...more

DIY Fever even here!

So here we are in the middle of August already!  This is normally the hottest part of the year here in Green Country – late July, August and most of September.  And this year is turning out to be pretty much normal- as in 90 to 100 degree afternoons with not much breeze.  We have had several rainy episodes and we won’t even mention the amount of severe weather we have had.  The folks inMooreare still working on recovering from the tornados that caused such havoc to that area of our fair state.  We (me and the mouse in my pocket along with several friends and family)...more

How do you handle stress?

Wow is it already this late in July!  I really have to work harder at being more focused and not let so much time pass between each post!  Life does get busy but in order for this blog to be effective and to do what it is called to do I must post more than once a month!  ...more
