How true it is! If you think that God is a big bully up in Heaven just waiting for you to mess up so …

Nerd alert… I am a huge J.R.R.Tolkien and C.S.Lewis fan… so that’s your warning! LOLTwo of my children and I went to see The Hobbit yesterday. I believe the director Peter Jackson has really done Tolkien justice. The movies are really good to me. These movies have also given me a place I want to visit, New Zealand, the place they …

Pastor Butch had a short message and I got two awesome inspirations from it.One thing he said was that God picked Mary for this purpose, to carry Jesus and be His mother. Why did He pick her? That’s His business. Her purpose was …

He had the same thing done 5 years before, but was needing it again.I remember talking to him on the phone the night before. The nurses were giving him a sponge bath and he thought it …

My Pastor’s message yesterday was simply amazing.  It’s been a series, as usual, but it’s just been right on time. Remember me talking about hope last week? Well, try to always remember this.. Proverbs 13:12 says,  “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” My Pastor said, “Love is revealed when it dives …

Psalm 91 is a very protective Scripture. Verse 4 says,  “He will cover you with his feathers,    and under his wings you will find refuge;     his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” I looked up rampart, it means “anything serving as defense”.
