Fire

A Vivid Dream

Early this morning, I awakened from a vivid dream.  It was some sort of underground tunnel where people were trapped. A man had set-off a bomb and there was fire everywhere. We were able to save many, but we had to go back for some. They asked for something I didn’t understand at the time, but it turned out to be a puzzle that when put together helped fight off the evil man.

We will not be able to put it out […]

Christmas Craziness and Time with God

It’s that time of year when we never seem to have enough time. December 1st we published our Under the Mistletoe Collection of novellas.

We have Christmas celebrations around the corner and even though I’m no longer involved in leading the youth group or the […]

A Guest Post by Leeann Betts: ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly—Not!

Please welcome Leeann Betts. She has a guest post for the gratitude Friday feature: ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly—Not! Seems like the Christmas season rolls around more quickly every year. It’s the 4th of July, and then it’s Thanksgiving, and then before we know it, Christmas. And with it, the requisite smiles and spending and happy times. Because, after all, that’s what we do, isn’t it? But the holiday season isn’t a happy time for everybody. There are some real stresses that this season brings, including excessive spending, excessive eating and drinking, excessive time spent with family and relatives, and excessive pretending everything is fine. You’ll note I used the word “excessive” four times in […]
