Cured of My Identity Crisis*

I offer today Exhibit A: Now I know what some of you are thinking. Some of you may have even wondered it out loud, “Gosh, I didn’t realize Brad had been married so many times.” Seriously. It’s a wonder my own two children  know who their momma is. These pictures might be the very reason Brad one time said, “I sometimes go to bed with a brunette and wake up with a blonde.” Poor man. { read more… }

Kingsland and Kingdom

I’ve spent the past eight years up and down IH-35. A typical year has been 40,000 plus miles, and I’m so over it! For those who don’t know already, I began working part-time… oh my goodness, but I love the sound of that… at the end of March. March 28 to be exact. On what would’ve been my Granny’s 98th. There could not have been a more perfect date, especially since my Granny’s death was { read more… }

In Over My Head And Chasing Deeper Waters

  When I sat down to type this post tonight, I wasn’t sure my fingers would remember how. The last time I wrote on this blog was February 25. A little over four months ago. It was my last day in Romania. A lot has happened since then. We built Sanctuary Oaks, a meeting/retreat facility on our property. A place where people can Know Him and Make Him Known. We had a wedding at our { read more… }

Day Six: He Restoreth My Soul

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table { read more… }

Day Five: I Saw God Today!

George Strait sang the song.  I experienced it. I saw God today. And not just once. Day Five on the ground in Romania. Sunday. Three church services in one day. We began in Simpetru which is ChaCha’s home church. And it wasn’t just any ordinary church service. Two young men were being baptized: Gabi, Rodica and Florine’s son, and Vaseli, son of Margarita and Daniel. And, oh sweet mercy! There is nothing like a baptism { read more… }

Day Four: It’s of Kingdom Importance

“It’s of utmost importance.” It’s a phrase I’ve heard countless times, and with a word like “utmost,” importance seems almost superfluous. If you look utmost up in the dictionary, you’ll find it means most extreme, greatest, the most extreme extent. The word even appears in the title of what is considered to be one of the most popular Christian books, My Utmost for His Highest, by Oswald Chambers. I think I might have even used the word a few { read more… }
