Today's Features

  • Bob and I had the pleasure of hosting our dear friends from Virginia this past weekend.  We were a respite stop for them, since Brenda just lost her mother of 93 years, a few days before.  Bob and I had made the trip to Anderson, Ind., my hometown, to pay our respects.

    While we were there, she asked if they could stay with us on their way home because she needed some relaxation. What a wonderful compliment and what a special pleasure to provide some precious relaxation for them.

  • I believe the Word of God has the anointing (ability) to speak to people. We read the Word and expound on it but the true Word of God is what speaks to our Spirit and tells us what to do and what not to do. It’s the answer to our needs and advice from our Savior, so I want to share God’s Word with you:

     

    Psalm 91, In God we trust,

    1.                  He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
