You Are Under Surveillance

You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. –Psalm 139:1-3      We live in a very voyeuristic culture. Almost everyone carries a phone with […]

The Rust of the Story

I used to enjoy listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. His distinct voice, wit and wisdom made him a media star. On top of all that, he was simply a good man. He had a tag line that he repeated often during his broadcasts. It went, “And now, the rest of the story…” I […]

April Fools

“Momma, I see Mommy coming! April fools!” 4-year-old Addi giggled. “Your turn Momma!” “Oh, look! There’s Mommy! April fools!” I responded! “Look!! Mommy’s coming out the door right now! April Fools!” she exclaimed. “Okay your turn!” “I see Mommy now! April Fools!” We continued this little game for 10 minutes as we sat in the […]

Rocky Balboa – the Italian Stallion – is a fictional movie character created by Sylvester Stallone who has inspired audiences for over forty years. Nancy and I saw the first Rocky movie in 1977. We watched it pay-per-view in our hotel room at the Lowe’s Summit, 569 Lexington Avenue, NYC. We were on a weekend […]

The Voices in Your Head

Remember this little saying from elementary school? “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” We chanted it and thought it was funny, but truthfully, we didn’t have a clue what it meant.  We just liked it ‘cause it rhymed!  And it seemed like a good thing to shoot back, […]

The Search Party

A few weeks ago, Mistie Osterhouse asked me to play with her and a few other musicians at the Gateway House of prayer on a Saturday night. It had been a while since I last picked up my trusty Fender Telecaster, so I needed to replace the strings. I knew I bought five sets of […]

From the Rooftops

My husband Donnie is a contractor and early in his career, he replaced a lot of roofs. Roofing is a tough job. Although it is good money, it’s dirty, unpleasant work. It’s risky because of sudden rain storms and dangerous because of the heat or risk of falling. But my young, strong husband loved standing […]

     A.W. Tozer wrote, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.” Those are difficult words to read and harder to comprehend. Honestly, we don’t want them to be true. But they are. At least that’s been my experience.      My first significant memory of trauma and […]

Here and There

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” Dr. Suess penned a lot of clever lines such as the one above, but while his books are great fun to read, they cannot always be universally applied.  I think we can all agree that sometimes in life, funny things are definitely NOT […]

Invincible Weaklings

I remember the day so very well. It was Sunday, July 4th, 1977, the morning I was asked by my pastor to fill in for him while he was away for the weekend. He knew I was sensing a call into the ministry and wanted to give me my first opportunity to stand in the […]
