God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing.You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from.True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction. Even when the way goes through Death Valley,I’m not afraid when you walk at my side.Your trusty shepherd’s crook makes me feel secure.… Continue reading Psalm 23
We all have an appointment, actually two, waiting for us whether we know it or not. Yesterday, Christmas Day, we went to visit our Granny, Gerry Burton. It was not only Christmas Day but also her birthday. She turned 102 years old! She no longer gets out of the bed. Diapers are one of her… Continue reading The Appointments
As a few of you know, we are in the process of building a house and moving to Columbia, TN. Needless to say, this Christmas has been a somewhat different one. We had no tree to put up, so I bought a very tiny one maybe a foot tall, put some lights on it and… Continue reading This Christmas
I don’t think I could do it. Give it all up. The home with my Father. The Holiness. But He did. And this is the time the whole world seems to celebrate it! As I mentioned in last night’s blog, it is also the time for Christmas songs. This song has to be my absolute… Continue reading Only One!
It’s the time of year again when we listen to Christmas carols and remember years past. One Christmas 22 years ago, I didn’t get to be home with family. It was one of the happiest, saddest Christmases I remember. It was a happy and joyous occasion because I’d just had my first child. We even… Continue reading Home for Christmas
My way to work takes me over a train track. Seldom do I get caught at it, but I did the other day. I was in no hurry, thankfully, but I could tell others were as we waited in the long line together. Watching the train speeding along, I saw a lot of graffiti written… Continue reading Just Stay on the Tracks
As time goes by, things change so much. So many of our friends come and go. Some marriages come and go which can cause things to be different sometimes. The other day as I was out doing some Christmas shopping, I saw an old friend. She’s my age, so she isn’t old. 🙂 Our friendship… Continue reading Friends
As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, I am not musically inclined. So, I often wonder why I wake with a song on my heart. Perhaps what is in my subconscious comes through or maybe it’s the Spirit putting thoughts in my weary, feeble brain. Whatever it is, I am thankful! Here is this morning’s song:… Continue reading Morning Song
I love sports! When I was younger, I played any sport I could. Each season they changed, so there was a new one year round. Every one of those sports need different equipment. Tools for use to play the game and sometimes for protection. The same is true in life. I thought about this yesterday… Continue reading They’re Coming!
Revelation 15: “Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty.Just and true are your ways, King of the nations.4 Who will not fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name?For you alone are holy.All nations will come and worship before you,for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
