Love in the Afternoon

"It's good to be home," Joel said as they let themselves into their condo unit. "I don't think I could eat anything else for the rest of the day." It was just after 3pm on Saturday (Sabbath) afternoon and they were now coming home from having lunch with another couple after church. "It was sweet …

Lost Sheep

Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost - Luke 15:5 Christ Holding a lamb. When watching the The Chronological Gospel Movie about JESUS, I was struck by the story of the shepherd who went searching for his lost sheep.  He was an older man, probably in his fifties or sixties and fit.  He …

The Raven

The raven, sleek and black, has always been depicted as a bird of ill omen, death and evil.  Yet, we see a different picture of this bird in the Bible.  God used ravens to feed his prophet, Elijah during the famine in Israel.  He sent Elijah to Kerith brook, east of the Jordan, instructing him, …

Valued by God

Luke 15:8-10 Just recently I watched the movie, "The Wedding" with Halle Berry.  There was a scene when she went to the beach for a swim.  She took off her engagement ring and put it in her blouse.  When she went back, she couldn't find it.  Frantic, she felt around in the sand and when her …

Letting Go

Matthew 19:16-30 The rich young ruler went to Jesus because he knew that something was missing in his life. When you find that you are lacking something in your life or you have questions that you can't seem to find the answers to, what do you do?  Do you go to Jesus?  This young man did. …

Keep the Spark Alive

Remember those times when you and he were dating how you used to be on the phone for hours?  You never seemed to run out of conversation.  There were no awkward moments.   The conversation just flowed.  And when you were together, the time just seemed to fly because you were having so much fun? …
