Monday Music ~ Drops in the Ocean by Hawk Nelson (Christ is for us! He’s not against us!)

Is there a math formula that can calculate the drops in the ocean? A gazillion? More? (Gazillion’s a number, right?)

In this song, “Drops in the Ocean,” Hawk Nelson paints a vivid picture of Christ’s extravagant forgiveness. [Read more…]

I love my cat and dog. I love my husband and children more.

I’d cry for my pets, but I’d die for my family. 

And yet, my love for my family isn’t perfect, because I’m not perfect. [Read more…]

Twelve and a half hours.

That’s how long it took us to drive from Panama City Beach, Florida back to our house in Lexington, SC on Saturday.

Twelve and half long, tiring hours in a car!

Was a week at the beach, relaxing in the warm sun and soft sand with one of our daughters and some great friends worth that long of a drive? Absolutely!

Do I want to jump right back into the car and do it again. No!

Yesterday I texted our friends to mourn the end of our vacation. I said we should go back.

This was the reply I received:

Only if we can fly ✈️

We agreed to sell my daughter’s Jeep and buy airline tickets.

We want to go back to the beach, but we don’t want to take the time required to drive there.

Christianity is a lot like that. [Read more…]

John 13:35

My heart broke when I read about a girl who was struggling and seeking help. A friend asked her if she’d tried going to church. She replied, “Of course not. I feel bad enough already.”

Christ came, lived and died because of His great love for the world. 

We need to be the evidence, not a contradiction. [Read more…]
