Hope Spreads Further: From Crisis to New Life

Spring Means Golf

May 30, 2020

Spring is finally here.  For me that means that it is time for golf.  At the beginning of the year, I had these grandiose plans to start practicing in mid April so I would be ready for my league play in June.  These past couple of summers have been difficult for me in playing golf. The summer of 2018 I played golf not knowing that...

I've Got the Music in Me - Part 3

May 17, 2020

Singing.  Did you know that the Bible contains over four hundred references to singing and fifty direct commands to sing?  There are three short verses in the book of Psalms in which we are commanded to sing seven times! (Psalm 96:1-2; Psalm 47:6)  God delights in hearing us sing praises to him.  Personally, I can’t believe that there are people who derive zero pleasure from listening to music, but there are.  It’s a real neurological condition called “Specific Musical Anhedonia” and it can be measured using...

Thinking about Psalm 23 - Part Three

May 14, 2020

Hello, and welcome back to my blog about diving into Psalm 23.  I hope you took some time to consider how this wonderful set of six verses applies to your life; not just now, but also every day and in every way.  When the Lord is your shepherd, you have enough.  He is enough. Enough to meet your needs, calm your nerves, clear our vision, restore your sole, ensure your future, and bless your day.

So, last week I talked about the first words, The Lord is...

I began playing the flute in sixth grade because I thought it was the most beautiful sounding instrument ever!  I also played piccolo in high school.  In my final concert as a senior, I got to play the piccolo solo in John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Striped Forever.”  It was possibly the hardest part I had ever played, plus my director made me stand up to play it!  I don’t think I’ve ever been as nervous as I was that evening.

When I was 16, I decided I wanted to learn to play the...

Thinking about Psalm 23 - Part Two

May 9, 2020

Welcome back to my third in a series of blogs about Psalm 23.  I think this a beautiful set of verses, written by King David in which he draws upon his experience as a shepherd and his relationship with God.  David clearly understood the role of the shepherd and his importance to the flock.  He also understood and embraced his dependence on God in a spiritual and practical way.  Our word today is the fifth word in the verse and is the underpinning of the entire Psalm.


The word shepherd is a contraction of the two words...
