Some time ago a sweet friend and pastor’s wife asked me if I had any ideas for church hospitality. I’ve thought about it. What is it? Is it wanted? Is it effective? The best church hospitality I ever experienced was about 30 plus years ago. My husband and infant son and I were looking for […]The post Church Hospitality appeared first on Mom's Blog.
In Matthew 7:7,8 we read, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.” But what about those prayers you prayed and didn’t receive what […]The post I Asked But Didn’t Receive appeared first on Mom's Blog.

I’m loving this time in my life. Reality has sunk in. Cynical? Nah. Seeing more clearly? Yeah. During my first fifty years my heroes were fictitious characters with real names; created by biographers, themselves or my rose colored eye sight. Today my heroes are real people who live, struggle, fall down, and get back up. […]The post Heroes appeared first on Mom's Blog.
So far since arriving back in the US, or “the land of plenty” as Becky Ebanks, a friend on the island calls it, we’ve been visiting with family. It’s been nice to reconnect with our children and grandchildren. We’re still looking for the vehicle God has chosen for us. We’re looking for one that seats […]The post Visiting Family in Maryland appeared first on Mom's Blog.
We have been set up! Don’t be alarmed. God did it! God loves to set his people up to let their light shine and glorify their Father in Heaven. This happens repeatedly in our lives. In some way God sees to it that the going gets tough for us and [...]
As I was reading in 1 Samuel chapter 13 the LORD revealed one way I could eliminate a good sized chunk of stress in my life. Saul was waiting on the prophet Samuel. The prophet was to offer a sacrifice before Saul could proceed with his battle plans. Things were looking rather [...]
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Remove not the ancient landmark which thy fathers have set.Ă˘â‚¬ÂťĂ‚Â Ă‚Â IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve read that lots of times but this morning the verse speaks to me.Ă‚Â Ă‚Â In the past IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve read the verse and thought about the landmarks that divided property.Ă‚Â Ă‚Â Of course it would be wrong for a person to arbitrarily move the property line, stealing [...]
There are many reasons to teach but the one I am concentrating on today is a benefit for the teacher.Ă‚Â Ă‚Â Today is the last of a 13 lesson series of Bible studies for ladies and I realize that one of the greatest benefits for me has been that I am forced to think about the inconsistencies [...]
As a mother of seven, ages 14-24 I often have one-on-one talks with young people.Ă‚Â This morning I talked with a young person who could be said to be gently pushing the boundaries in the areas of dress, music and hairstyle.Ă‚Â As I talked a clear analogy came to mind.We often ask our young people [...]
You remember that the virtuous womanĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land. If we revere our husband others will too. If we revere him in the home, our children will. If we treat him as though he knows what he is talking about [...]
Have you ever felt the stress of knowing that some day you will have to give an account of every idle word youĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve ever spoken? Have you ever experienced the guilt of SatanĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s accusations concerning sins you have already confessed and forsaken? Have you ever wondered about the sins you have committed since [...]
For our 25th anniversary in 2007 our children surprised their Daddy and me with new laptops.Ă‚Â My husband had wanted one for some time, but I hadnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t even dreamed of owning one myself.Ă‚Â Quickly the computer and I bonded.Ă‚Â Ă‚Â This blog Steven created was a major factor in that.Ă‚Â Fast forward to the [...]
The last few days I have been remembering various times God has answered our quick intense cries. One such time in particular continues to play over in my mind. We were living in Mississippi at the time, and the children and I were burning trash in a barrel in the back yard. [...]
While Pastor Creed was in Israel, his father, Dr. Creed, preached a message entitled Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“What If Your Marriage Was Not Designed Primarily For Your Happiness, But Your Holiness?Ă˘â‚¬Âť.Ă‚Â Tonight at our churchĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s jail ministry banquet Bro. Dove applied that same thought to other areas.Ă‚Â The principle was brought home for me in a rather humbling [...]
Recently I was asked to blog about ways our family economizes.Ă‚Â We are presently a family of eight, and have been as large as ten plus extended guests.Ă‚Â I am sure many of you have some excellent ideas as well and I hope you will log in and post those ideas.Ă‚Â LetĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s be a help [...]

Last night was our last service for my husband to preach at BBC.Ă‚Â We are praying about what the Lord has for us to do next.Ă‚Â Will it be the mission field or another pastorate?Ă‚Â We welcome your prayers with us in waiting on the Lord and discerning His plan.Ă‚Â The church hasĂ‚Â commited to [...]
