The Appointment

The Appointment

My husband Todd has taken blood pressure medicine for many years.  This year as school as been winding down, he has felt like he is going in multiple directions.  In the middle of all his busyness, he realized that he ran out of his blood pressure medicine.   He...

Hospital Food

Hospital Food

Isn’t it amazing when you no longer love something that used to be your favorite?  That happened to my pastor.  He used to love coffee and Dr. Pepper.  In fact, that was basically all he drank.  Then he got cancer and had a hospital stay.  He found that his taste buds...

Lovingly Guarded

Lovingly Guarded

Last weekend, I sat in church and thought about hayrides and parenting. It was the 1992-1993 schoolyear. I was an education major at God’s Bible School in my final year. To fulfill my student teaching requirement, I was helping in the high school department of God’s...

What I Know

What I Know

I’m not fabulous at making up stories, but I did my best when my children were young. I would lie next to them and make up cowboy stories, detective stories, and more. Of course, my children were the stars in these stories. There was a character who always captured...

Lee’s Phone Is Lost

Lee’s Phone Is Lost

Last week I got a chance to go to the annual Interchurch Holiness Convention in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Many times, this has been a highlight in my year and a priority in my life. This year, most of my family could not go with me. It was just my daughter Abigail and me...

The Lord’s Side?

The Lord’s Side?

I heard from a young teacher last semester. It was the first day that one of her elementary students began testing the rules, and she was scrambling to know how to handle the situation. The school year was new, and the students were used to harmony in their class....

Their Last Chance

Their Last Chance

(Guest Post: Roberta Sarver) When God urges you to do something, don’t hesitate. I learned that lesson the hard way as a young Christian. I had been a follower of Christ only a short time when the first of God’s “nudges” came my way. It was an inward impression on my...

Like God Sees It

Like God Sees It

(I have been asked for an update after my December post called “God With Us.” Here’s the update.) Have you ever had a situation where you found yourself laughing, then figured out later that it was the wrong reaction? I think that must have been what the children felt...

Enough

Enough

(Guest post from Abigail Hamilton) God revealed Himself to me at a very vital time. It was right before my senior year, and my brother and I wanted to stay with Grammy and Papa Hazelwood before the school year started. Even though not blood related, this precious...
