Twentiversary

How did you spend, or at least picture spending, your 20th anniversary? This is how mine is going at 9:30 pm. We managed to spend part of the morning together, because I didn’t have to be at my office meeting until 10, and he played hooky for the first part of the morning. We spent… Continue reading Twentiversary

Barn Night

First official barn night of summer 2023 is in the books! I love barn nights. Food, fun, and fellowship. Mischief, music, and memories. ATVs, acapella singing, and animals. Kids, campfires, ….ok, ok, I’ll stop with the alliteration now. (I love it almost as much as barn night – maybe.) Last night we had blackberry picking… Continue reading Barn Night

Clothe Yourselves with Compassion

This week’s communion discussion prompt was from Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.” Then, the question, “How does communion call us to clothe ourselves with compassion?” First off, what is compassion?

Around this time last year, our family took a trip to the beach. We had a really fun and relaxing trip with some friends. Our last morning there, I took a walk to the shore by myself to enjoy the sunrise and take some pictures. As I was walking back to the beach house, I… Continue reading Perfect?

Bondfire

If you know me, you know I love: 1) sitting around a campfire; 2) staying up late; 3) good conversation. Which is why I love our barn so much. We have people over fairly regularly, most weeks on Sunday evenings for fun, food, and fellowship, but there is rarely a week that goes by that… Continue reading Bondfire

Come – Join My Table

One of the things we do during our Sunday service is before the Lord’s supper, there is a slide presented with a scripture and a question for thought. Today’s scripture was Hebrews 1:3 & 8. The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God…But to the Son He says, “Your throne,… Continue reading Come – Join My Table

The Power of Touch

I was recently afflicted with that dreaded virus-which-shall-not-be-named (Covid). As soon as I started feeling bad, I went to my room away from the rest of my family. As soon as I had a positive diagnosis, I was advised to spend 5 days in quarantine. So I spent 5 days shut up in my room,… Continue reading The Power of Touch
