As Father's Day approached, I thought of my own Daddy who has been gone two years.  Soon after his retirement at 80+ years, he sent each of us children a letter asking our input as to how he could live a more holy life (1 Peter 1:14) in his last years.

Last Saturday at the Huntsville Space Center, I was able to share with my family my memories of the birth of the space program when I was a child as we toured the museum. I listened to their shrieks of adventure on the Free Fall as they were propelled high into the air in mere seconds.

Landscaping.  Painting.  Laying tile.  Refinishing furniture.  Adding a bathroom.   For hours every day my neighbor works on some type of project around the house.  As I see him tinker in his garage, I sometimes scratch my head and wonder what in the world he’s thinking.

It has been my experience that when God answers prayer, it often looks very different than I thought it would.

A few years ago we adopted a homeless dog, possibly a run-away who was never reunited with his owners. One of the first things that we did was to have him “chipped,” so he could be returned if he ever tried to run again.

Recently my husband and I were shopping for a reliable used car for our daughter. We thought we had found one that would be perfect for her. It was a top-of-the-line model, complete with all the bells and whistles

In Joshua 1:3, God tells the Israelites to take possession of the land He had already promised them several times, beginning with Abraham.  The land was theirs. They just had to go in and possess it.

Online shopping seems to be taking over the marketplace.  As shoppers, we weight the convenience of browsing and purchasing with the click of a button against the downside of not being able to see, touch, or try on an item.  Sometimes we get burned.

When I was young, I wanted to learn to knit a simple scarf.  I found a ball of yarn, knitting needles, and attempted to follow instructions. Whenever I’d mess up, I would pull the one thread, and invariably, unravel the whole scarf.  The imperfect, completed scarf started with one thread and finished with one thread.
