To hear the words, "Well done..."

Today Ben Entwistle passed away at the age of 20.

Some people take more than 70 years before they get to go home, but Ben got to go home earlier than most.  I am shocked, surprised, grieved.  

Often we are shocked when the Lord chooses to take His best servants, but maybe He just wants better company.  He gives and takes away...but those of us who are left behind can't help but feel the loss.

May I decrease, and He increase...

With every draw back and set back that I have gone through in the past few days, I have rejoiced because my understanding of God has become just a bit bigger. His comforting embrace has become just a bit more tighter, and His faithfulness to me has been proved a little more.

12%-my support level right now.

As we diminish, He increases. May I continue to diminish.

'Tis the season...to eat!

HAPPY 4th of July!!!

I'm not a very good American, but here's the deal.  I LOVE apple pie!  

There is nothing more satisfying than a slice nice, warm, spiced apple pie with a scoop of premium vanilla bean ice cream on top.
