On May 31, 1975 Jeanie and I were legally married. A record of that translation is documented at Potter County in Amarillo, Texas. Because of that, I can introduce her as my wife. She can sign papers as Jeanie Tow. A legal transaction occurred. But what if that were all there is to our marriage? We

Love is the key. Joy is love singing. Peace is love resting. Long-suffering is love enduring. Kindness is love's touch. Goodness is love's character. Faithfulness is love's habit. Gentleness is love's self-forgetfulness.

"What peace it brings to the Christians heart to realize that our Heavenly Father never differs from Himself. In coming to Him at any time, we need not wonder whether we shall find Him in a receptive mood. He is always receptive to misery and need, as well as to

This Is My Church
It is composed of people just like me.
It will be friendly if I am.
It will do a great work if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes if I am generous.
It will bring others into its fellowship if I bring them.
Its seats will be filled if I fill them.
It will be

THE HEALING RAINBOW
Years ago one of our sons – age 10-12 – spoke some remarkable words. I had been ill. He was outside and saw a rainbow which he perceived as being over our house. He came inside and said, "Are you better yet? I thought maybe you were being healed."
At that young age he had

I’m reminded of the poem by Clay Harrison entitled "Miracles:"
"Miracles can be large or small
according to God’s Plan.
And they need no explanation
for the unbelieving man.
The heavens declare His Glory;
the harvest proclaims His Love.
With the faith of a mustard seed
Erasmus, the famous Renaissance scholar, once told a classic story which was designed to emphasize how important it is that we take up the torch of Christ’s ministry with great commitment. In the story, Jesus returns to heaven after his time on earth. The angels gather around him to learn all
There is a crew at our house in Thomasville. They’ve been working for the past few months putting two new rooms on the back of our house for Mom and Dad to come live there. Next to the house is a dumpster…it is about 8’ x 25’ and full of scrap wood, shingles, discarded Pepsi bottles and sandwich
The senior chaplain at the Marine Corps Base where I work during the week lost his house and everything in it during the fires this week. When I spoke with him on Wednesday, he had just received the call telling him his house was on the list of addresses destroyed by the blaze. He didn’t mention

Following Jesus is not easy. Being faithful is not easy. Giving and sacrificing. Generosity. Showing kindness and love. Being faithful and consistent. Offering praises and worship even when you don’t feel like it can be a huge sacrifice. You will most likely be rejected at some point. You might
Saying “Good-bye” to Mom
It is Mother’s Day weekend and my mom is dying from pancreatic cancer. She is only 65 and I will miss her very much. We are a family who believes in and loves God very much. Faith is the victory that overcomes. Right now, faith is what is needed to overcome my grief.

COMPLAINING IS REMEDIED BY THANKFULNESS
Turn back again to the book of Exodus—Exodus chapter 34. The cure for complaining is not found in changing our circumstances, but rather gaining a proper view of God.
· Do you really believe that God has your best interests at heart?
· Do you really

When I think of drawing on love’s source, I think of Corrie ten Boom. Her family had all died in the Nazi concentration camps. Their crime? Hiding Jews in their home. Somehow Corrie survived. The war had ended, the camps had been liberated, and Corrie was speaking in various churches, sharing about

B. Prayer is
The most powerful force accessible to man.
A lifting up our heart and soul to God: Ps 25:1; 143:8
Crying out to God: Ps 86:3
The breathing process of the Christian's soul.
5. A sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of
