He is What I Need (Abide Challenge #2)

Abide

Last Thursday I flew to Montana, without any notion of what God might do with my time away from home. It ended up being a precious time of friendship and learning and laughter and slowly savored meals. Of crisp air, bold mountains, blue skies and even double rainbows. God’s fingerprints covered the entire weekend. It was a God-gifted [Read More…]

What I Want to Remember, but Sometimes Forget…

Remember Series

There are lessons I think I have learned. And then I forget them. Which is why I need those Jordan River Stones. To remind me of what God has done, What He’s already accomplished. And I also need reminding of what He has taught me over the years. So… Today is the start of a [Read More…]

Why It Matters Now…

Heaven
