    <!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 <![endif]--> Have you ever met a person who has so often “stood in the gap” that you wonder if he/she forgets that is not his/her permanent position?  Do you feel concern that he/she is so used...
  • CAN’T WAIT FOR THE REUNION
    on Jul 2, 2011
    This morning I was where I could only hear the words coming from the television, but I got the picture anyway. A mother and daughter being reunited for the first time in twenty-three years, the mother was saying, “I can’t wait for her to meet her...
  • WINDBLOWN
    on May 12, 2011
    The flower and I seemed to have something in common that day. Each of us was at the street’s edge, feeling the effects of being windblown: the flower by the wind of nature and I through the wind of words that, in my eyes, were hurtful.The desert wi...

  • HOW HIGH DO MY PRAYERS GO?
    on Apr 15, 2011
    Have you ever said or heard someone else say, “It seems my prayers are only going as far as the ceiling”? Reading the following verse recently gave me pause for thought: “In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, wit...
  • BUT GOD, I ASKED FOR A MOCKINGBIRD!
    on Mar 22, 2011
    A long time ago I wrote about how much I wanted a mockingbird family to make its home in our front yard tree. It would make me happy if even just one mockingbird would move in and sing. But, mockingbirds come and mockingbirds go. They sit on the bran...
  • WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO GOD?
    on Mar 20, 2011
    The question was asked today: What is your relationship to God?My response:The image that comes to mind is me as a little child running and reaching my arms up to my Heavenly Father as He walks towards me, holding His arms down, with His hands palms...
  • LORD, HELP ME WHERE I AM
    on Mar 10, 2011
    I am often reminded of a prayer I came across when I most needed it: “Lord, help me to do what I can, where I am, with what I have.” Tucked in, too, are memories of a woman dear to my heart, which showed me that life’s changes could be weathere...
  • SALTY TEARS
    on Feb 22, 2011
    Why do you suppose tears appear on cue when sorrow arises in our hearts? And, if a tear happens to slip into the corner of your mouth before you can catch it in a tissue, have you ever noticed that it has a definite salty taste?As I lay in bed, with...
  • MY HEART’S DESIRE
    on Feb 21, 2011
    When I was eight or nine years old, I stood outdoors by our country house and prayed that someday I would be a wife and mother, in that order, because, as I explained to God, a baby needed a daddy as well as a mother.At age ten, I thought I had given...

  • ONCE UPON A TIME

  • THE PRAYERS NOT PRAYED
    on Oct 8, 2010
    There have been times in my life when I have been too overwrought with sorrow or concern to formulate a worded prayer. I have taken great comfort in being able to believe with all my heart that God knows me better than I do; therefore, He completely...
  • GOD'S PLANS
    on Aug 22, 2010
    So many times I have seen Jeremiah 29:11 quoted and have repeated it myself: “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” We have taken that scripture v...
  • JESUS CHOSE – I CAN CHOOSE
    on Aug 13, 2010
    Before the creation of the world, because He knew mankind would need a Savior, God made a plan and chose to send His Son to be the perfect unblemished Lamb Whose blood would be available to wash away the sins of the world. A long time ago I chose to...
  • KINDNESS OR CURSE
    on Aug 7, 2010
    Our firstborn, Beth Zimmerman, writes a blog that has over 200 regular readers. That is the known number. I suspect someone reads a particular post and sends a hyperlink to a friend saying, “You need to read this one,” and a new follower is born.
  • WHERE I AM WEAK, HE IS STRONG
    on Jun 9, 2010
    Because my desire is to follow Christ I have set a standard in my actions and words that starts in my heart. Since I first learned of my Lord’s love and chose to follow Him I have learned much from His Word about who He created me to be. I have let...
  • WHOM DO YOU SEEK?
    on May 9, 2010
