Book Review: Write His Answer

By on April 17, 2018

 One of the many things writers do besides, well, write, is read books, many books. I’ve read a lot of them on the art and craft of writing as recommended by my favorite authors. It was my non-writing friend, Nan, though, who gave me a copy of Marlene Bagnull’s book, Write His Answer. She gifted […]

Wandering through Widowhood – Weeping

By on

And so we start our journey with the first letter, W, which I have switched to weeping. Best to get past that, right? A hideous wail, one of two. “Lord, I can’t look at myself right now. I don’t want to look at myself ever again.” But I took a quick glance. The mirror revealed features […]

Widowhood

By on November 1, 2017

Widowhood, an unfortunate word that would not have been created had the Fall not taken place (Genesis 3). I’m talking death here. I know, it’s not a happy subject. But let me share with you how the good Lord is bringing me through this devastating loneliness. My prayer is that it helps you scale that mountain […]

The Book Proposal

By on October 18, 2017

I love my brother in the Lord, Marshall Brandon. In addition to his godly walk and numerous examples of continual reliance on the Lord, he makes me laugh. Even in the midst of the place that held him in physical bondage (where we were headed when we snapped this pic), we found reasons to rejoice and, […]

Just Wondering – Genesis

By on

Imagine you are reading the book of Genesis for the first time. You’re discovering nothing but the printed words of that first book of the Bible. No Law, prophets, judges, kings, and no New Testament, where we meet Jesus Christ, our Redeemer (I love that He calls us “friends.” (John 15:15) I’ve been a Christian […]

Book Review: Spiritual Prepper

By on October 17, 2017

This cover is excellent, don’t you think? That’s what drew me in, and then the subtitle continued, “Tapping Into Overlooked Prophecies to Prepare You for Doomsday.” In today’s climate, “prepping” often refers to kooks who obsess about stockpiling food and survival gear. Sounds ominous, right? I looked into the book, expecting a treatise on how […]

Just Wondering…

By on June 27, 2017

Just wondering… I love to travel (what time do we leave?) and I wonder about a lot of things (now, how…?). That’s why I love the quote by J.R.R. Tolkien, “All those who wander are not lost.” These short posts will focus on wanderings, wonderings and the wonderful truths the Lord reveals during both. I […]

Someplace to be Somebody

By on June 22, 2017

This man. Today he is a dynamic pastor and one of my dearest friends—closer than a brother and more like Jesus than any other person I’ve ever known. Back in the day, I would not have wanted to meet him on the street, any street. All he wanted to do then was kill “whitey,” as […]

Explosive Transformation

By on June 15, 2017

They had me at Coca Cola. The sweet people who administer the BRMCWC Facebook group told us if we drink Coke, we’d better bring some or buy it in town. I thought, I like these people; they take care of the details. Hey, when you want a Coke, you want a Coke. As it turns […]
