quite a week

We’ve had an “interesting” couple of days here at the Cottage. This morning Mr. L sent an email to the members of our Home Group (family) that speaks for itself: Good day, NEW FIRE family. In our time in the Word today, I had this thought in my mind. Do you remember back quite a…

healing in God’s ICU

For the word of God is living, and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:11-12 Yesterday afternoon we got a call from another one of my “god-daughters” asking us to pray for a…

painting a diary

“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary” _Pablo Picasso In August of 2013 my life took a left turn down a new path. From Autumn of 2012, though the Holidays, and into the early summer of 2013, I invested myself completely in a “job” which I believed was given to me by The Lord. I…

quite a spill

June was a stormy month! At least as far as walking by faith is concerned. Here at CCB the old adage “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything” is my rule of thumb. That’s why there were only two posts in June.  But honestly, June was a series of raging storms. I had bouts of depression, rebellion…

a small thing

Yesterday, October 22, 2012, we had the day off from our new work. We’ve been ‘on’ for seven straight days—a huge blessing—that I haven’t had time to write about. Stay tuned…I will. It was a day for catching up. Washing—the clothes hamper was overflowing. Shopping—the cupboards were bare. Reading—my Inbox was full. Etc. etc. etc.…

Late in 2009 Dick was asked to speak on a Sunday evening for the small congregation where we were attending church. His topic was Trusting In The Lord For All Things. He carried his toy boat along as a prop, told them the story, and then suggested that the Lord would do exceedingly, abundantly above…

quite peculiar

“The word “peculiar” is found in Titus 2:14. Christians are the peculiar people of God. We use the word sometimes when we speak of something odd or strange. But this is not its use here. The word is translated from the Greek word which is made up of two words, one which means ‘around’, as…

quite troubled

Occasionally the Lord has blessed us with an opportunity to share our stories and His blessings to us with others IRL (in real life).  Each opportunity allows us to say: “Live simply, love generously, serve faithfully, speak truthfully, pray daily, and leave everything else to God. This is the way of peace. Through the years…
