Lessons from the Rain

Lessons from the Rain I’ve been sitting in the camper while it rains, listening to the sound of the drops on the roof and watching it bounce off the little pond. I am once again reminded of the incredible way that God created nature to mirror life so that we could...

When Big Trees Fall

Can I tell you a little secret? Big trees are going to fall. Yep, they have, they do, and they will. There will be extensive damage.  Some damage will be immediately visible and some will be buried deep beneath the rubble. Things around the tree will be destroyed in a...

Willing to Give it All

The impact of this Sunday School lesson I prepared for last week continues to resonate in my soul for my own life. I decided I needed to share it here because God has just not allowed me to let it go. Sometimes we all need a reminder of the importance, value, and...
