Butterfly Fun

Posted by on May 9, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Family Do-votions | 0 comments

Summer is a time when butterflies flit from flower to flower and share their beauty as they gently flutter their wings and fly in gardens. We can learn from their activities and characteristics and even imitate some. Butterflies network. They spread pollen among flowers to help plants germinate and grow more plants. We network when we connect with people and share thoughts to inspire new ideas. Butterfly wings move in a figure eight motion. They have direction with their...

Are You a Rooster Parent?

Posted by on May 8, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Parenting Perspectives | 0 comments

There was a tremendous commotion in the chicken yard. I looked out the window to see a lone goose about ten feet away from the coop fence. He was just searching for bugs and basically minding his own business. But the chickens were not happy about the goose’s presence. The hens went under the coops or either in the coop to the roosts. Once they were settled, the roosters each assumed a post nearby. In the door of each...

Mom, I’m Such a Sinner!

Posted by on May 4, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Inspiration for the Journey | 0 comments

The door opened with a bang against my front hall. “Mom!” Something was wrong. My heart revved like a racecar. I wiped wet hands against my apron and hurried to meet my daughter, home from third grade. Charity fell into my arms, a melted puddle of tears. “I’m such a s-i-n-n-e-r!” She wailed. Sobs ripped raw from her eight-year-old soul. “Oh, Moooooom, what am I going to do?” By then I’d imagined a number of worse case scenarios. “What...

An Army of Me

Posted by on May 2, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Giggles and Grace | 0 comments

At the end of the day, my patience wears thin, and I am weary. After taking care of three kids, one husband and one self, I just don’t have much left. So shower time can sometimes try my patience. One evening after supper, I sent my then seven-year-old daughter Grace ahead of me into the bathroom. “Get your clothes off, go to the restroom, and then get in the shower. The water is already on and is just the...

The Long Way Home

Posted by on May 1, 2018 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, History by the Slice | 0 comments

The only time I ever got motion sickness was in a helicopter as the pilot kept turning it in circles over the coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. He wanted the passengers on both sides of the copter to get a good view of the lava pouring into the ocean. It was an amazing sight, but I felt a bit queasy for the rest of the outing. Some of the most gorgeous places in the world were created...

Act Like Men

Posted by on Apr 30, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love.” So Paul exhorts the Corinthians in his first letter (16:13-14). We live in a day that often lacks a clear understanding of biblical masculinity. Society does not offer a strong definition to boys of what it means to be a man. The examples in pop culture, sports, and politics often show weak and pitiful models of sensuality, selfishness, and foolishness. However, the church,...

A Lesson in Respect

Posted by on Apr 27, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 1 comment

My children asked what time their grandmother would arrive at the airport. I could see their joyous expectation of her arrival. On the way to school, they asked, “Will Grandmother be with you when you pick us up this afternoon?” Back when I was young and my grandmother was alive, she lived close enough where we were able to see her weekly. It was a tremendous joy to watch her as she greeted us with the door open and...
