You Gotta Have This

Posted by: | Comments (1)

 I interrupt this blog for an important announcement: you gotta get Bryan and Katie Torwalt’s CD, Here on Earth. If you feed your spirit with worship music, this CD is a must-have. 

I assure you that I don’t know these folks; I’m not getting a kick-back from the sales, lol, I just absolutely love, love, love this cd. It’s my favorite in years. I just wanted to recommend it to you worshipping folks out there who haven’t found it yet. 

Here are a couple of  my favs:

 

 

Hope you’re blessed as I have been!

Pitching My Tent

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I have an aversion to camping. Actually, I despise camping. In my mind, camping means dirt, bugs, snakes, briars, smoky campfires, inconvenience, dirty bathrooms, and showers without curtains.  And while that may sound strange coming from a girl raised on the farm, I can validate my feelings.

From Smith Lake to the Tennessee River, I’ve pitched my tent with the best of them until that night.

Early in our years of marriage, my husband and I decided to camp out for the night. We go with his cousins and camp on the banks of the Tennessee River. The guys would fish. The gals would lie out in the sun and read. The plan worked great until theory became reality.

Living with the Mysteries of God

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Heavy, almost tangible sorrow, along with a sense of shock, touched many in our area this week following the death of a young man who was involved in an automobile accident. 

Questions, both spoken aloud and spoken in the heart, filled the air. 

“Why?” and/or “Why God?” 

“What about our prayers?” 

Thoughts came, “He’s too young; he had such a destiny to fulfill!” 

We often feel a strong need for answers following such tragedy. We need it to make sense, fit in a neat theological box, something, anything to give us a way to wrap our hearts and minds around tragic events.

Some experience a crisis of faith; others refuse to even look at the issue of faith during crisis. They push the questions far away.
