Are We there Yet?

It is hard to believe that five weeks ago I was holding my newborn grandson while preparing my notes on mentoring to teach at the March Louisiana School of Ministry. It was a busy time as I had a full calendar schedule set before me between meeting with boutiques about selling our products and traveling…

He Fully Understood

The 2020 Passover has come at us in full force. As our world has been hit with a plaque, so many have taken to focusing on this ancient feast and its meaning. To me, it is significant that we are seeing red ribbons on doorposts. For the most part, gone are the bunnies that usually adorn front lawns. Instead, we have the reminder that One Person has the answer. One Person paid the ultimate price. It is as if God cried out, “No more will I share MY Passover Feast with another god! Only My Son deserves the focus.”

Remaining the Same

Palm Sunday. The day usually set aside to remember that one day so long ago where a nation was preparing for the week of Passover. Everyone was headed to Jerusalem. Crowds at every street corner. Shops selling their wares to the many travelers entering the city. Roman soldiers watching and on alert for signs of…

Silent Patience

There is a new norm in our world today. It is a quietness in society. The stadiums, streets, concert halls, restaurants, etc., all have a resounding silence that is unknown to this generation. Yet it is not the first time in history that a society has been brought to an almost complete halt. So as…

Legacy of Love

Family. The word alone can bring various emotions from different individuals. For some, it brings about a rush of unwanted memories. The hurt caused by betrayal or abuse. Others recall a sense of loneliness and fear. Still others experience the peace and comfort like that of a warm, soft blanket wrapped around them on a…

Love Enough

“Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” – Jesus February. It is the time of year we hear the most talk about love. Flowers, roses and candy can be seen in every store. The main focus during this time tends to be set aside for showing…

Lessons from a Train

It was a priceless moment. As I got on the floor to play with my three year old grandson, his 14 month old brother spotted us. It didn’t take long for that bundle of energy to land in my lap. As much as I attempted to prevent it, those small hands grabbed the wooden train…

Celebrate His Designs

I Iove art! Classical art is my preference. I love a good landscape or floral painting. When I look at more abstract or modern work, to me it feels as if the artist took too little time on the focus. I often do not see the purpose of such work. But my daughter loves it!…

Oil for the Season

Who doesn’t love the beauty of the mountains covered with majestic conifers?! When the mist is settling above the trees, it brings a sense of peace in its beauty. We see the Master’s handiwork in full display. But how do these green trees survive the harsh months of winter with almost no effect? It’s in…

Winter’s Beauty

In the midst of the joy of starting a new year, we recognize that this‘newness’ comes during the coldest season of the year. Winter. To many, winter appears to be a season of cold, bitterness and death. Most plants lay dormant during the winter months. No new life seeming to appear. Yet there is beauty…
