God’s Glory

What a beautiful and intimate promise. As I look ahead to our future without Kristen’s physical presence, I am overwhelmed by the gentle touch of God’s grace. Last Easter, I asked God to see His heart regarding Jesus and our sin. He delicately guided me through two months of struggle over my daughter and her Read More …

Christmas 2015

Looking forward to that glorious day! For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away…For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. (1Cor 13:9-12) Then we who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds Read More …

Linville River Log Cabins

We could use a little extra prayer over the next few weeks. Fall has been our favorite time to get away as a family and enjoy some time in the NC mountains. Kristen loved to spend time in the mountains and she especially liked staying at her Uncle Shane’s log cabins. This was her favorite Read More …

Peeking through the clouds

This is what God blessed me with during my evening walk this past Thursday. I have had a few heavy days as we try to plan a little fall getaway to the mountains. Fall is our favorite family time and Kristen loved to stay at Uncle Shane’s cabins. As I walked, I was enjoying watching Read More …

Perspective (By faith or By sight?)

The crown of thorns (viewed within the context of God’s grace) becomes a beautiful symbol of His love for us. His love compelled Him to the cross. What they meant for evil, God meant for good. We must see with spiritual eyes if we are to see with God’s perspective. John 19:2 And the soldiers Read More …

What’s Your Static?

Do you hear me now? Your static may be A thought in your head Your static may be A word that was said Static can be anything That stands in your way If it distracts your mind And leads you astray We all have our strongholds That weigh on our heart If you think you Read More …

Intimacy with God – Heeding His Voice

It still amazes me that God cares for His children with such intimacy. The God of the universe walks with us every day through His Spirit He left with us. Early this past Sunday morning, a friend texted Julie the following: “Go to church!”. That was it. Julie and I looked at each other a Read More …
