Tonight, I am very happy with myself.  When I was first approached about doing a “Blast Off to School” back to school event, a song came to mind.  Do you remember FFH?  Well they did a song called “Astronaut”.  I’m about to play that for a room full of unsuspecting victims.  Victims of great humor that is!!!  

Little Seeds


“…a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted…”
Ecclesiastes 3:2b

Good morning one and all!  I don’t know where you are or what you’ve got going on your lives this week, but here in North Carolina…our teachers just started preparing for the new school year.  I am not a teacher, but I have spent some time this summer/the last two weeks doing some teaching in various Bible school type situations.  I have also been a part of some amazing and…interesting conversations this summer.  Anyway, during my study time this morning, I came across something I felt needed to be shared.

Go Without


I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;
also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil–this is God’s gift to man.”
-Ecclesiastes 3:12-13, ESV

There is nothing I love quite like a road trip.  I put on my favorite music and just…go.  I do a lot of my driving at night and I see some amazing wildlife.  I remember, once, while I was in college at Appalachian State, I took a midnight drive on the parkway and within the same mile I saw two raccoons, a deer, and a coyote.  There is nothing I love quite like wildlife.  Both of these things, wildlife and road trips, bring me joy.

Psalm Snips :: Three


Good morning all!  My morning reading today was the third Psalm in the Psalter.  Just a couple things that caught my attention.

“But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
and he answered me from his holy 
hill.  Selah.
I lay down and slept;
I woke again for the Lord sustained me.”
(vs. 3-5, ESV)

May we remember as we go throughout our day that God is our shield.  He protects us as we are in the battle.  This seems somewhat easy to remember.  However, when the battle is raging on and we are growing weary, may we be reminded that He is also the one who lifts our heads.  What a beautiful promise!

When broken hearts cry out, He answers!  He is the peace that nurtures sleep and the power that maintains!
