His Eye is on the Toady

Posted by admin in blog | No comments

When I was a little girl we lived in San Angelo, Texas and in that dry and dusty area, I loved to catch horned toads.  One little toad was kept with care, love and regular feeding in a brown carton on the front porch.  The air holes were regularly used as exit channels, so there […]

Master Reader

Recently at a luncheon I was talking with the assistant of a prominent executive.  This assistant is a lovely and efficient lady who has been active in her significant position for many years and is well known for doing her work well.  I asked her how she did what she does with such consistent success.

Goneness

Anything you give up you will miss, for instance, the old refrigerator at my Mother’s house many years ago.  I suggested we buy a new one, but my Mother was adamant.  That was a perfectly good refrigerator and the new ones were not half so well made.  She may have been right, but the old […]

Hiding Place Memories

Posted by admin in blog |  

Many years ago I was privileged to be in the film “The Hiding Place”.  Every effort and expense were focused on the event of its premier in California.  The Christian community was praying that this opening’s publicity would introduce the film to the general public.  We settled into the auditorium.  Suddenly, a little crackle of […]

As Valuable as Friendship

Posted by admin in blog |  

I have a very dear friend named Milton Wilson.  For over forty years, we have shared theater, faith and friendship.  He lives in Waco and our times together are rare treasures, but on one recent trip to Houston, we had time for lunch and a really good visit.  One of his missions in life is […]

Marginal Messages

Posted by admin in blog |  

Frequently, God addresses me afresh from a scripture passage already known, studied and even taught.  I will relish the new message only to find I had that passage underlined and the “new message” written in the margin!  One such passage is about the prophet Elijah; one of the most dramatic characters in the Old Testament […]

God’s Almighty Power

Posted by admin in blog |  

  Oh, how I need Psalm 114. It specifically celebrated the deliverance of Israel, a song many scholars attribute to the institute of the Passover. It interrupts the tangle of today with the reminder of the might of God. Hold up to Psalm 114 any dilemma you may be experiencing today. This is the power […]

A New Jar Full of Days

Posted by admin in blog |  

The morning had started before I was ready for it. I was fixing my husband’s lunch and had turkey slices waiting on the bread upon which I was spreading mustard. The jar of mustard was all but empty. With an iced tea spoon I retrieved from the corners of the jar a scant spoonful. With […]

Silent Night

Posted by admin in blog |  

There is something about Christmas. In spite of our commercialism, the weariness, the noisiness of shopping and travel, Christmas happens. I was in New York City during the holiday season and keenly aware of its sounds and intensity. The crowded streets, the cross-town parking lots that were meant to be ways of passage and the […]

God’s Revival

Posted by admin in blog |  

No tour guide ever recommends it, but most of us have visited it a time or two. The Valley of Baca; a land so arid and pitiful modern maps never locate it. Yet it exists. Desolate, depressing and dry, dry like crumbling soil in a rainless fall, dry like gloveless hands in the cold, dry […]
