Monday afternoon, April 15th, our country suffered yet another ‘terrorist’ attack.  As the runners neared the finish line of the Boston Marathon, a bomb shattered the lives of hundreds and thousands of people.  Even while we are ‘running the race’ and trying to finish strong, tragedy can strike at our hearts.  But I encourage the …

A Roller Coaster Ride!

Dillons baptism...3.30.13

Personally, the best description for the last few days of March, 2013 would be a roller-coaster ride! Emotions were flowing as we learned of my daddy’s passing on Saturday afternoon, March 23rd.  Then within forty-eight hours, we spent sixteen hours traveling to Kansas and back for his graveside service.  Though visiting with family was a …

We’re Marching and Singing to Zion…Pt 3

As this three part study comes to a close, perhaps the strongest reminder of how we are to sing comes when we consider the words of the author of Hebrews. When we sing songs of praise we are offering a sacrifice to God.  Hebrews 13:15, ‘…let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, …
