Hang On!! Help is Coming!!

Yesterday morning was wonderfully cooler and cloudy so Bentley (the family dog) and I embraced the opportunity to just bathe in God’s creative beauty from the patio. As I looked out at the hills of Austin, immediately the scripture in Psalm 121:1,2 came to mind: “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where…

Do They Know Us By Our Fruit?

When in season, I love those little Halos and Cuties brands of mandarins. They are my “go-to” fruit, but at the end of spring, they leave the produce shelves. I’ve purchased other varieties since then and they just don’t taste the same and are even sour or tasteless. Who wants a sour or tasteless fruit?…

Go Ahead…Raise the Bar….and Fly Over It

God certainly set the bar high for us when He said words like this: “Love your enemies!” “Have peace in the midst of storms!” “Overcome evil with good!” “Be perfect as I am perfect.” “Don’t judge and you will not be judged.” “Have faith and don’t doubt.” “I’ve made you MORE than conquerors.” He didn’t…
