A Good Cook – Recipe Exchange

Priscilla | Dec 15, 2009

One day I hope to be a good cook. I’m talking about the kind of woman you know and admire from afar. Crisp white apron, flour scattered on her chin, smile on her face, utensils in order, the most incredible smells coming from her kitchen and not a cook book in sight. When you ask […]

The Bugs are Gone

  We moved about a year ago. Our home is tucked in a wooded and more rural area of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area now. We’ve enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the wide open spaces. But with the onslaught of rain that fell relentlessly this Autumn, and the dense tree and brush coverage that populates our […]

Why, I’d Be Delighted

Dec 14, 2009

All that talk of misery yesterday made me feel a little sorry for the people who don’t know how my mind works.  You see, I found that my day became simply delightful just because I became aware of how un-miserable things were. Let me explain further so you won’t wonder (much) why Priscilla lets me write on her blog: […]

Dec 13, 2009

  There is a book near my desk that I take out whenever I need a pick-me-up. It’s right next to the Bible. Its title is, “11,002 Things to be Miserable About.” I’m kidding, the book is UNDER the Bible. Anyway, it is a parody of the popular “14,000 Things to be Happy About,” a […]

Travis Cottrell: Psalm 145 – Forever More

Dec 09, 2009

Last week, we were talking about favorite worship songs and worship artists.  One name seemed to pop up quite often: Travis Cottrell.  It just so happens that Travis leads worship for the Deeper Still and Living Proof events….and no wonder!  He and his team do an amazing job of truly leading a stadium of people […]

Do You Have a Mentor?

Dec 08, 2009

So glad you stopped by today because I am so anxious for you to meet some friends of mine. Seven years ago our ministry got a call from The First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Maryland, asking if I would come and minister at their women’s conference. Little did I know that accepting that invitation […]

Go Ahead. Take Something From the Jewelry Box

Dec 07, 2009

There is a really cool feature on this website that I’ve been meaning to tell you about.  Actually, there are two.  But one involves sparkly bling for your soul, so let’s focus on that one today because, let’s admit it, we love blingy things. Have you noticed the tab up there at the top of […]
