For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother. Philemon 1:7 My family and I recently returned from a 15-day road trip, circling five states. We slept at 5 houses and 3 hotels during our jaunt, and I couldn’t help taking note of…

“And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” – John 1: 16-17   “It is finished.” (John 19:30) Those words echo on this Holy Week, as we commemorate and contemplate what He finished – and what…

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people … Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders … (Psalms 105: 1, 5) Sonny and Cher sang, “And the beat goes on …” (it’s even written on Sonny’s tombstone). It’s more than a catchy lyric,…

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity…

I just wrapped up writing a glowing, 4-page award nomination for someone I don’t even know. I saw his resume, talked with him on the phone and read praises from peers … then the words just flowed.

“He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.” – Matthew 10:40 A row of 12-foot tall weeds grows along our front porch. They high-five the gutters. They’re impossible to miss. They look like a strange fairy tale forest that doesn’t belong in our suburb. I’m embarrassed by…

“Come, follow me.” Luke 18:22 We were in new territory. Two mamas and eight little ones (ranging from 1 to 11 years old) adventured to a heard-about waterfall and swimming hole. We hadn’t been there before. In fact, my crew and I didn’t even live in this state. The mountains, bleached blonde from summer’s heat…

  Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. – Psalm 40:5   Waking up in my clean-sheeted bed…

1 Peter 4:9 “Use hospitality one to another …” Envision an open-armed, put-together smiling woman welcoming a stranger outside her door. I yearn to be that woman. When the door swings wide, the aroma of warm nourishment swallows up the stranger, and a clean, prepared house and heart beckons. Inside, there’s a soft place to…
