The Shadow of His Wing

“We spend more time talking about how wonderful it is to hide

under His wings than actually finding refuge there.”

Angie Smith

We sat in the gazebo in the middle of forty beautiful acres with open books on our laps discussing chapter five of “Chasing God”. It was evening and the sun was slowly setting, the only sound was that of birds scurrying about and the breeze on the wind chimes. We sat in silence as the truth of Angie’s words filled the space between us.

Mother's Day

This Sunday is Mother's Day, but we think mom's should be celebrated more than one day!

Costume Change

One Easter tradition is getting new clothes to wear. This year my Easter outfit has a bit of a different meaning.

I bought a new shirt last week. I know, buying a new shirt is not really blog-worthy; but sometimes it is. You see, six months ago I wouldn’t have bought the shirt. Why? Because “they” might not like it. Who are “they”? Glad you asked.

Prayer for Easter Week

Here's a copy of the prayer we shared on The Morning Show today:

O God, you know us well. We are quick to speak of faith, but slow to live it fully. We shout "hosanna" as Jesus approaches, as did the people of Jerusalem many years ago; but we do not want him to come too close -- not close enough to really see...

Tick Tock

Sometimes I pray crazy prayers. Prayers that I mean at the time but then later I wonder. What was I thinking?

Three years ago I prayed a crazy prayer. At the time it made sense to me, I had just went throughout the hardest thing of my life. I was devastated and tired and weak and defenseless.

Suddenly

Spring is finally starting to spring up around here. I love the winter, and snow is my favorite, but even I am ready for warmer days and signs of new life.

Growing up in the nursery business gave me a profound love for the smell of freshly turned dirt and peat moss, and after a crazy few weeks of working more hours than I can count I decided I was in need of therapy of the dirty kind, so I headed to my flower beds with a trowel, shears and a garbage sack.

As I sat and looked around me I noticed that my flower beds looked a lot like I felt. Pretty ugly. Dry. Barren. A scraggly mess. I was so ready to be done with the dreary winter look… in my heart and my front yard.

Everything from Picasso to Third Day on this weekend's family fun calendar! Plus if you missed our chat with Brandon Heath, you can hear it on demand via Soundcloud!

This morning we talked about some ideas for lent, talked to the crew at NWA vs. Hunger, and got an update from Mark on his adoption.

Snow Day Number ?

It's another snow day. Another missed day of school for NWA students. Have you run out of things to do? Well, we have some ideas for you...
