Have you ever been wanting and desiring one thing, only to have something else happen and you find yourself disappointed? For example, you’re craving something to eat for dinner. The craving began early in the day and it just stayed with you throughout the remainder of the day. You could hardly wait to get to […]

What a wonderful day of worship this past Sunday! It was so good to see so many worshiping with us! I know it was Mother’s Day, which brings out a crowd, but we had others in attendance who have not been with us in quite some time, as well as visitors with us. I was […]

If you have ever taken a road trip, you know there is excitement as the trip begins. As the trip goes on, depending on how long the trip is, the excitement may begin to fade. The longer the trip is, the more opportunity there is for things to not go your way. True, you can […]

I’m thankful to Crabtree Valley Baptist Church for allowing me to enjoy a “staycation” this past week. It was a wonderful time of rest and being able to refocus through prayer and planning.       Every time I take a vacation, or just spend time resting, my mind always goes back to Jesus and the times He […]

Well, we did it. We were able to enjoy 40 days of focus as we celebrated Easter and the risen Lord. I want to take time in my article to thank you for reading the devotions and for the kind and encouraging words you have shared about them. I enjoyed writing them and helping us […]

I think it is safe to say that most of us, if not all of us, live by calendars. Whether it is the calendar on the wall, or the calendars on our phones, we have gotten to a point where we need to make sure we know what is coming up in our day. Doctor’s […]

In case you did not know, I am a big-time NC State fan. It doesn’t matter what sport it is, I am a fan. No, I did not attend NC State. My brother did, but that is not why I am a fan. I became a fan in the days of Monte Towe, Tommy Burleson […]

Have you ever felt abandoned? Have you ever felt all alone? Sure, you have. We all have. From time to time things happen and we feel as if we are left all alone to deal with the situation we are facing. It really starts when we go to school. Our parents take us to school, […]

Relationships. All of us have had relationships with other people. Husbands and wives; children and parents; boyfriends and girlfriends; friends.  Relationships are an important part of a person’s  life. Without relationships, we don’t have support, and love and care. These are the important parts of life. The very first part of the word tells us […]

Salvation. The process of asking Jesus to come and live in our hearts (my definition). Salvation: preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss. (Dictionary definition) As I read and re-read our passage of scripture for this past Sunday, each time it amazed me that the thief on the cross was able to be saved […]
