A Moment In Time

Sometimes solitude and quiet are a friend, those moments of pulling away to be refreshed in a world trashed by noise, those times when a whisper can be heard like a roar. Sometimes not to speak a word at all, but just to listen to what heaven might proclaim. Sometimes in these moments, especially in the hours of the night, heaven might not even utter a sound but is overjoyed from the touch. Rest and peace, and refreshment for another day. Those moments when heaven and earth kiss… Sometimes they are available more often than we think. We are not alone in this journey. There are more angels around us than we can imagine… Yes, rest in the journey… Read the rest of this entry »

My Dream

What is my dream? Why do I do the things I do? Why do I even care? Why do I get up in the morning what is this compassion in my heart all about? This is what it is all about. It is a vision from the Lord. It is my dream and it compels me on. Read the rest of this entry »

A Miraculous Year

At the beginning of this year, things looked really impossible and then as we stepped out in it, we met obstacle after obstacle. At each point of the journey, the Lord took us back to each altar we had faced in our past, both individually and as a married couple so that we could see how He met us before in these circumstances. Most of the time, it was like facing a sheer cliff with no way to get to the other side except jump. So we did, time after time and now we are here and we still have six weeks to go to finish this year. A Miraculous Year… Read the rest of this entry »

Life In The Spirit

Life in the Spirit or life in the flesh, we all have a choice to make everyday. It is similar to the glass half empty or half full illustration I used in a previous post. Life in the Spirit is a great place to walk every day, but how does one get there. Does it happen overnight? How can I attain it? Life in the Spirit! Read the rest of this entry »

Heavens Declare

Sometimes we are in the right place at the right time and things are just awesome. Janiece and I were inside the Garden Of The Gods welcome center in Colorado Springs looking at postcards to purchase to send back home when I just thought to myself, “It sure would be great if I could take some photos like these. I am sure these photos were taken by people who live here who had the time to find these perfect moments.” After we went outside, I took a few more shots and then went back to the hotel. As I was cropping the image to share with some people, I was amazed at what I had captured. The Lord heard the cry of my heart and gave me one of those moments. HEAVENS DECLARE…

Holding On To Your Faith – Or Someone Else’s

The way I have written two of my books has been very interesting. I’d like to map it all out and then fill in the gaps with writing, but that’s not the way it happened. For each paragraph I wrote, I would have to wait on what came next. I didn’t know the outcome of the story or even how to get there. Of course, writing a book this way really makes it exciting to me. I get just as excited about what comes next as I know the readers will also. But, what if it doesn’t go anywhere? What if the ending doesn’t make sense? What will others think? HOLDING ON TO YOUR FAITH – OR SOMEONE ELSE’S… Read the rest of this entry »

Oh, Lord, How Majestic

Oh Lord, how majestic are your ways… We recently journeyed to one of our favorite places, Colorado. I love the mountains because they represent to me, His Majesty. They are bigger than any problems I have. There is a beauty that is just incredible. All of man’s accomplishments seem really small compared to seeing one single mountain. Following is a recent experience I had. OH, LORD, HOW MAJESTIC… Read the rest of this entry »
