Back in the Saddle Again

Well, I wish I was. I must admit, as much as I love horses, they do make me nervous. I've never had riding lessons and have only ridden trail horses from a stable. My last two experiences were not good ones. Be that as it may, they are still my favorite animal--so majestic and proud. … Continue reading Back in the Saddle Again

Viv Drewa - The Owl Lady

A Fire In Winter – A Christian Poem About Receiving Jesus

Couldn’t have said it better myself. This is so true, and beautifully stated.

Along the Barren Road

fireplaceOften times, we have a misunderstanding about accepting Jesus into our lives. We believe that we are not able to come to him until we have cleaned up our act. Maybe we’re not completely wanting to clean up our act; maybe we want to clean it up, but are scared; and maybe we just don’t know how to clean it up.  There is a misconceived notion that when Jesus enters into our lives, everything is great and wonderful. This is almost always false. Yes, Jesus does add meaning, purpose, and fulfillment into our lives, but that usually comes later. Our first meeting with him is not in paradise, but hell.

And when you are the most sinful and broken…

Gospel Relevance

In his book, The Works of Jonathan Edwards: Letters and Personal Writings, George S. Claghorn gives us a glimpse of a taste Jonathan Edward’s once had in prayer:

Once . . . in divine contemplation and prayer, I had a view that for me was extraordinary, of the glory of the Son of God, as Mediator between God and man, and his wonderful, great, full, pure, and sweet grace and love, and meek and gentle condescension . . . The person of Christ appeared ineffably excellent with an excellency great enough to swallow up all thought and conception . . . which continued as near as I can judge, about an hour; which kept me the greater part of the time in a flood of tears, and weeping aloud. I felt an ardency of soul to be, what I know not otherwise how to express, emptied and annihilated; to…
