  • From cowardice to courageous

    As leadership shifted from Moses to Joshua, God spoke to Joshua seven times about his character either directly or through Moses that Joshua was to be strong and courageous (Deuteronomy 31:6, 31:7, 31:23; Joshua 1:6, 1:7, 1:9, 1:18). The book of Genesis indicates that seven is the number of completion (seven days of creation). God does not tell Joshua to be responsible or loving, honest or forthright.

  • Grace Notes

    During the entire time I was pregnant with my youngest daughter nearly 35 years ago, my husband was also unemployed.
    Back then, I carefully budgeted every cracker, every bowl of Cheerios, every ounce of milk, with absolutely no wiggle room.
    One day after a trip to the market I grabbed one too many grocery bags out of the car to bring inside to our apartment and a plastic gallon jug of milk dropped and splattered all over the sidewalk.
    Despite the adage, “Don’t cry over spilled milk,” I cried.

  • The joys of coaching

    I sat down beside Harrison County’s basketball coach Larry Kendall Saturday night before the Harrison County junior varsity played Anderson County.  
    The Thorobreds are currently 1-6 (1-5 at that time) and Larry has a lot on his mind.  He did not discuss with me any of what I am going to write but I have seen coaches in his predicament many times and it is not a good feeling.  
    The season is not lost but when you look down the road, not a lot of “certain wins” are staring you in the face.
