Devotional 3.22.23

Dear Faith Family, I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing, (John 15:5). It was his wedding song to his bride, a "beautiful" monotone top hit that included the lyrics that we love to sing, "I love technology!" Thank you for those stirring words Kip in the classic movie, N...

Enjoy a Piece of Pi

Devotional 3.15.23

Dear Faith Family, 22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him," (Lamentations 3:22-24). "Try a brief experiment: Using a compass, draw a circle. Take one piece of string and place it on top of the...

A Joyous Shade of Yellow

Devotional 3.8.23

Dear Faith Family, Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing, (James 1:2-4). Once upon a time Frank (you know, the guy who owns the car wash) and let's say, Dr. Quinn (cause sh...

Intentionally Resting

Devotional 3.1.23

Dear Faith Family, Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him, (Psalm 37:7). Ahh, Cape Cod. The wooden steps welcomed my tired feet. A left at the top of the attic staircase dead ended in a small bedroom with a window facing the ocean. A rhythmic, rolling rumble came to a crescendo as one wave after another gently crashed onto the beach. A thunderstorm quietly announce...

Counting Days That Count

Devotional 2.22.23

Dear Faith Family, So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom, (Psalm 90:12). Heard about it. Read about it. But still wasn't ready for the painful heartache that the flowers released. It was just another Monday. A restaurant near the gas pumps seemed a wise choice for my desperately thirsty truck. Never mind that just six days earlier the very same...

Children of Light

Devotional 2.15.23

Dear Faith Family, For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord, (Ephesians 5:8-11). My Valentine adorns the rocking chair next to mine as we enjoy the view from the humble cabin perched on the si...

The Peace of God

Devotional 2.8.23

Dear Faith Family, Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus, (Philippians 4:6-7). True confession: I'm a caramel macchiato junkie. Coffee without caramel macchiato cr...

Rain Check

Devotional 2.1.23

"Rain Check" Dear Faith Family, For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9). Ribeye Roast on sale for $5.97 a pound? Yes please! Unfortunately, the local grocery store was sold out. No problem. Rain check, please. I've had the rain check now for ...

It’s a Privilege

Devotional 1.25.23

Dear Faith Family, For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God, You, however, (Romans 8:7-9a). Chuck asked for my help. He acquired a tow bar to connect to the back of his car. Seems that a friend of his was having car problems. Out of the goodness of his hea...

Instant Paper Cut Finder

Devotional 1.18.23

Dear Faith Family, For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord, (Romans 6:23).

Otherwise known as "Instant Paper Cut Finders", hand sanitizer is a common commodi...
