  • During our last celebration of America service at church we said the pledge to the American Flag, but also included the pledge to the Christian Flag and the pledge to the Bible. I wasn’t surprised when many could not remember the words to the Christian Flag and to the Bible because for most it was only done at Vacation Bible Schools. However, I was amazed at the number of people who had forgotten part or most of the Pledge of Allegiance.

  • When there aren’t any words yet invented to describe all of life’s strangeness, I just call it “life-ish” -- life is life-ish.
    Life isn’t predictable. It’s not stable or same. About the only thing you can count on is that one day you might cry and the next day you might laugh, sigh, gasp and scream all in the same 24 hours.
    That’s life-ish.

  • I’ve noticed more poison ivy this year than I recall in previous years. Maybe I am more observant or maybe the farm is just weedier. Either way it makes people nervous.
    I am not particularly allergic to this devious vine but Andy, my husband, will blister like being burned by fire whenever he comes into contact with it.

    Operation Stronghold is an ongoing effort to cover our children and school staff with the protection of God through prayer. Go and pray at your children’s schools. Together we can show the world just how powerful God is.

  • In Job 1, God invited Satan to consider his servant Job as one who loves and serves God. Satan replies with this line, “Does Job love and serve God for nothing?”
    Satan was claiming that the only reason Job loved and served God was because God protected him from calamity and blessed him with prosperity. Satan was suggesting that the only reason humans love and serve God and others is because they get something in return.
