7.6.17 Prayer Prompt: Two Masters

PRAYER PROMPT ••• My husband and I have two dogs, one of which we rescued almost six years ago.  Her name is Beth (this picture isn’t of Beth, though it could be her twin!)  Technically, she is my husband’s dog; we adopted her for Wayne’s 40th birthday.  But rest assured – Beth is my girl.  A dog can only serve one master.  It’s in their … Continue reading 7.6.17 Prayer Prompt: Two Masters

7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In January 2016, my husband’s grandfather turned 100 years old and his birthday celebration fell the weekend of a major blizzard that shut down a good chunk of NC (where we live), as well as VA, WV, and KY… pretty much all the way to our destination in Cincinnati.  We drove through it, but that 7 1/2 hour car ride took almost … Continue reading 7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

7.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Rearrange My Priorities, Lord!

PRAYER PROMPT ••• It’s a lifelong joke in my family that I love to rearrange furniture.  I get it honest – my grandmother is the queen of rearranging a room.  It’s something that baffles my husband, but yesterday, after a large piece of furniture left our home, I managed to get him on board for rearranging the living room.  As I stood there, admiring the … Continue reading 7.4.17 Prayer Prompt: Rearrange My Priorities, Lord!

7.2.17 Prayer Prompt: Staying On Track With Friends

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever looked at the gravel rocks around a railroad track?  They are called “ballast,” and its purpose is to anchor the wooden cross ties in place, which in turn, hold the rails.  In the thousands of miles of tracks in America, it’s the ballast that keeps everything anchored and secure, and therefore, keeps the trains on the rails.  Can you … Continue reading 7.2.17 Prayer Prompt: Staying On Track With Friends

6.30.17 Prayer Prompt: Simple Obedience 

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Have you ever met someone who loves to make things difficult?  I know several, myself included.  If we’re honest with ourselves, we’re all guilty of this.  I’m reminded of the line from the movie, “A League Of Their Own.”  Tom Hanks character says of baseball, “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what … Continue reading 6.30.17 Prayer Prompt: Simple Obedience
