the depth of death

I was engrossed in my reading yesterday, while waiting for the boys at the mall, and was brought back when someone loudly said, “If you’d get your head out of your Bible for 30 minutes, you might be able to help someone. They need directions to Ruby Tuesdays.” This was only the beginning of the 5 minute…

The Biltmore- the dining room

In Matthew 22 Jesus begins with the Parable of the wedding banquet comparing the kingdom of heaven to the wedding banquet a king was holding for his son. All the preparations had been made and the invitations sent, but no one would come… Three times in the first four Gospels it is recorded what Jesus spoke at the Last…

The Biltmore- Home

We stood on the stone wall taking in the view. The gardens lie to the left of the home, the stables to the right, and the driveway continues along the gate to the front steps and then exits. Everyone that we meet associated with the home is kind and welcoming which is truly refreshing compared…

The Biltmore – entering the estate

As we approached Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC, I had to contain my excitement as for some time now I had desired to see the house and the grounds. I must confess we had attempted to see the house once before and had only made it as far as the building that sold the tickets…

A New Years Present

Tonight as we sat on the wrap around porch protected from the night rain a band played. I have no picture to share with you, but it is a moment in time I won’t ever forget. Try and imagine it… A small boy around 7 years of age eagerly asked his father if he could sing a song with them. As they…

Walking in Newness

    Today marks a newness in my life. (Before all of the words come out into a jumbled mess let me gather them so that I can share them well.) For those who may not know me and for those who do I was lost in the wilderness. Today I stepped out of it and into the…

Being Forced Against Your Will

 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself. John 6:15 Whenever the world tried to make Jesus something he was not meant to be or do – he left to be by himself and to pray to God (Luke 6:12), for he was…

Looking like my Mom and Dad

Over this summer I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with my family. What a joy to be able to have that time of fellowship, laughter, and memories. Even when we go places and meet new people someone almost always comments on our likeness. For example when standing by my sister… “you two must…

My Shelter in the storm

“Jesus, Jesus, wake up! Don’t you care that we’re all about to die?” The boat had already taken in water and fear swept over them as they clung helplessly to the sides. Their hearts pounded. Their minds raced. They cried out for help. Jesus lay sleeping in the helm. How could he be sleeping at…

The music of the spheres

Yesterday I had the privilege of listening to 2 phenomenal speakers on astronomy: Wes Callihan and James Burr. They shared with us the history of astronomy and the study/observation of the stars in such depth and intellect that I’m still soaking in the wisdom they shared. Even though there’s not enough space on this blog…
