An evening walk the day after Christmas to check on our pregnant Ophelia netted a big surprise! While we were eating dinner she birthed 11 little piglets!
Although obviously pregnant we had not realized how imminent the delivery so it was a lovely surprise! As I watched mom and her babies God began Continue reading
We live in uncertain times. There are 2 ways we can look at situations unfolding before us today – with Continue reading
In a pondering moment recently I was contemplating some scripture out of Ezekiel the Lord had brought to my attention. To give you a bit of history, Ezekiel was a prophet who had been taken in exile to Babylon while Continue reading
I have a confession to make.
I failed. And I failed big.
It might even be classified as a miserable failure, but doesn’t that become an oxymoron – wouldn’t a miserable failure actually be a success? Because I didn’t succeed except at failing.
I failed to catch Continue reading
I have a special guest writer today – my great grandmother, Anna Reinhart. Anna was a Bible teacher who traveled through the south until she was killed in a car accident in 1939. Although I never met her in person, her legacy lives on in me.
I am fortunate to have Anna’s Bible
and a very few of her teachings typed out on fragile paper. But the real blessing is that Anna lives on in me. As I share her teaching with you I pray it honors her and testifies to the ongoing, unchanging love of the Father for His people.

Tonight [12/16/14] begins the eight day celebration of Hanukkah! Hanukkah is the Hebrew word Continue reading
It seems the Lord’s favorite word is often wait. It’s always spoken very softly, very gently and with lots of love but the reaction it causes in me cannot always be described as such.
Now, when I hear the word wait I pause, take a deep breath and say, Yes Lord. The Lord helped me understand the waiting process by showing me Continue reading
Isaiah 41:7 So the craftsman encouraged the goldsmith, he who smooths with the hammer inspired him who strikes with the anvil, saying,”It is ready for the soldering,” then he fastened it with pegs that it might not totter.
It takes the heavy hammer of the blacksmith along with the gentle taps of the goldsmith in order to create a masterpiece. And it doesn’t happen overnight! God is at work in you, beloved, creating a work of art like no other.
Whether you are being hammered with the pain of something big Continue reading
