Praying for the Impossible

Have you ever prayed for something that seems impossible?  That seems so impossible that while you are praying for it, there’s a thought in the back of your mind going, “No way is this going to happen!”  I've prayed several prayers like that over the years,...

Three Funerals and a Wedding

In the month of July, I went to three funerals.  The first was a graveside service for the father of a friend whom I met at Clemson and had the blessing of leading in Bible study for many years.  The second one was for my dad’s cousin.  And the third was for a friend...

Pulling Weeds

Mother's Day is just around the corner!  Last year I was able to go home and see my parents for Mother’s Day.  On Saturday, I took Dad shopping to get some gifts for Mom.  One thing on her list was some lantana to plant in the yard.  Even though they live well within...

Earthen Vessels

The verse just leapt off the page.  Have you ever had that happen?  We were sitting in a small group in Sunday School and someone was reading 2 Corinthians 4:1-15.  But my mind stopped at verse 7: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing...

Charlottesville

I left Bible study today really sad and heavy-hearted.  Afterwards, I went to get an allergy shot and found myself holding back tears as I sat in the waiting room.  As I mentioned in my last blog post, these kinds of tears are unusual for me. We were discussing Titus...

Luke Maye and My Car

If you follow sports at all and especially college basketball, you have most likely heard about Luke Maye this week.  He made the winning shot in the UNC vs. UK game on Sunday, sending Carolina to the Final Four with another chance to play for NCAA Championship this...

Hidden Figures

On a recent Friday night, I finally went to see the movie “Hidden Figures”.  If you aren’t familiar with the movie, it’s about three brilliant African-American women who worked as mathematicians at NASA in the 1960’s and were a vital part of helping get John Glenn...

A Woman of Faith

When you think of heroes of the faith in the Old Testament, who comes to mind?  Abraham (my personal fave)?  Moses?  Elijah?  David? What about women heroes?  Ruth?  Deborah?  Rahab? Rahab?  You mean Rahab the harlot? If you had asked me a couple of months ago if I...

Being Rooted

If you follow this blog at all, you know I have a crazy yard that I spend my free weekends working to slowly improve.  There’s always something new and unexpected happening that keeps me on my toes. One of those recent unexpected things was when a small tree fell over...
