The Lone Ranger

Sometimes I am guilty of going off by myself to try and figure things out. Especially when I was younger I would alienate myself from other people in hopes that just being by myself could produce the answers that I was seeking. Often what happened was that I stayed confused about the answer and grew lonely in the process. God does not need Lone Rangers! In fact, things will always go better when you team up with others. When Jesus sent out the disciples to do the work of the ministry he sent…

Someone to Watch Over Me

For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction. (Psalm 1:6 NLT)

This journey in life that we are taking does not have to be difficult. There is a predetermined design that has been set up by our Creator. There is also another way that is filled with more of us than God. The Bible even goes so far to say that there is a "way that seems right to man but the end is destruction."…

3 Things I Learned from Mickey

It's been called the most magical place on earth: a place where dreams come true. Walt Disney World is filled with activities, music and of course, all of our favorite Disney characters. Christmas at Disney is another experience altogether. And when you add to the mix a Bowl Game and the Orlando Magic playing in town, the city is jammed with people. So many in fact that all of the theme parks had to restrict access due to there being too many people trying to get in!

In the midst of the…

Talk to Your Father

James 1:5 says, "If you don't know what you're doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You'll get his help, and won't be condescended to when you ask for it?" MSG

All of us need help every now and then. Where we get that help determines whether or not we are fulfilled by the answer. 

I would usually go to the people that were closest to me...not close…

Christmas Cookies

During this time of the year I always sample the sweetest cookies our church ladies can bake. I also refer to "cookie" as those tasty treats from scripture that fill you up and make you smile. I made a little treat for The Landing during one of the sessions we had that was so simple. It consisted of a pretzel, a Rolo and a pecan half. You put a Rolo on the pretzel and then in the oven at 350 for 5 minutes. When you pull them out of the oven you press down the pecan on top of the Rolo. Can I…

The Big "IF"

We have all heard about it. Many have faced it. Millions continue to try and figure it out. Of course I am talking about the "if" in lIFe. What IF I lose my job? What IF I face divorce? What IF my children make the wrong choices?
