It came to me in a whirlwind today, and yet was as still as a quiet whisper in my ear. Get clear on what matters by letting go of what doesn’t. I was stunned. I said, “but Lord, everything I’m doing is so worthwhile. I’m really making a difference! (Aren’t I?)” And … Continue reading Simplicity
Wyatt and I just returned from Plano, TX, where we attended the Grace Evangelical Society Conference. Oh my heart is so full! I’ve been a believer in Jesus Christ for 51 years now, and this week a new concept sunk deep down into my soul. Why did I not process this before? I’ve … Continue reading Free Grace!
I remember the day in 1999 when I made this cover. Someone recently said they would like to hear it, so I’m posting it here. It reminds me of a very special day. John and Pat Dryden had been married for years, but wanted to renew their vows, in church, and had a beautiful ceremony … Continue reading This is the Day
Here’s the audio link for those of you following my FaceBook Unwavering Book Study. After playing with this for TWO hours, I’ve discovered that Face book does not do audio unless the audio is uploaded somewhere else on line. So after a massive learning curve, ENJOY! Continue reading The Best Things

Yup, my title pretty much sums up my year. 2017 was a challenge in so many ways. I’m going to spend a few minutes just writing and remembering. I don’t want any of these lessons to be wasted (and have to be relearned in 2018!) Yup, I must be at the “difficult” age that society … Continue reading the challenge of 2017
My mother called me from her hospital room tonight. She sounds happy and peaceful, and I was thrilled to hear her voice. You see, I am 2,700 miles away from her, across this vast land, and cannot call her! The reason I can’t call her, is that the only time she turns her cellphone … Continue reading Mother
Looking at Psalm 1 this morning, I noticed something I had never seen before. Verse three says this, “He will be like a tree, firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season. And its leaf does not wither . . . ” (NASB) Clearly it’s talking about the person whose … Continue reading What! No Fruit?
