    Dream – Hope – Believe – Journal Post 5 – July 31, 2006

    July 31, 2006 Rachelle came and left a few days ago.  She told me a little more about her dream.  She was walking down a hospital corridor about to come see me and she saw Doug coming down the hall – smiling.  She knew he was dead and he knew he was dead but they […]

    Discouraged? Believe God – But Understand He Doesn’t Have A Watch

    Don’t you wish Daddy had a watch?  I mean, don’t you wish He went by your time sometimes? Have any of  you heard something from Him, or felt like He was telling you something would happen, and then you wait. . . and wait . . . and wait. Is it just me? – or […]

    Strange title huh?  But it fits this blog. Today I went to my fabulous bible study group.  We are doing Beth Moore’s video driven bible study “David.”  She started talking today about how sometimes you need to be “alone” with God – just you and Him.   One of those times is when you “are […]

  • Darkness

    Darkness

    Two-thousand years ago Jesus was in a dark tomb, covered in about a hundred pounds of spices (John 19:39) and wrapped in linen wrappings (John 19:40). Jesus lay in darkness.  He was dead. The disciples were in darkness too.  Their rabbi was dead.  Their hopes were crushed.  Their dreams of a messianic kingdom were dashed […]
