Stuck in Shadow

We're stuck in Shadow
Black and White
We're void of color
Void of Light

If their blood was oil
Then we might
If their bones were gold
Then we'd fight

If the Little Bird didn't sound so nice
If the Fickle Word could not entice

Maybe then we'd see their plight

If we'd turn and follow now the Light
They'd be precious in our sight.

But the Little Bird has told us news
more delicious to ammuse

So for now we stay in night.



In response to riots, violence, martyrdom, persecution, life lost, and the sad fact that our culture is more responsive to glittered gossip, greed, and celebrity lives. Christians are doing this. But we follow Jesus. We have to get out of the dark and walk in light. THEN we'll see them.  THEN we'll love them and rescue them. THEN we'll do as Jesus did.  We aren't living like we're full of color and light. There is so much MORE He has for us if we would only remain in Him. 
See 1 John 2:6-11.

Why You Should Encourage Your Kid to Give Wrestling A Try

Have you considered signing your kid up for wrestling, but are unsure? 
Parents, can I just take a minute to convince you to have your kids give it a try?
Before I begin, let me just say that I do not wish to insinuate that every kid should wrestle.There are plenty of ways to learn and grow as a person besides this sport.Each child is unique, and will learn in unique ways about how to live life.For some, music may be the discipline that carries them into responsibility.For others, basketball.For still others, math.But our job as parents is to figure out what will help our children learn the valuable life lessons they need before we send them out the door as adults. That means encouraging them to try things so they can find a passion.To find a fit.So, more than anything, I encourage you to find that thing.And maybe you’ll find out that wrestling is it. But there’s only one way to find out.Try it. And here’s why:
Nope, I am not a wrestler. Nor have I ever been.Truthfully athletics were nev…

6 Ways to Support Your Pastor

Being a pastor is not an easy job.  Sure, there are the very rich mega-pastors in their mansions and private jets, but your every day local pastor most likely isn’t like that. They work hard for you.  They are there for you at the most joyous and broken moments of your life.  They perform your wedding, bless your children, and walk you through the painful death of a loved one.  They deal with the highs and lows of life directly every single day.  They are always on call.  If you could find a way to bless your pastor, would you?  As a now grown-up pastor’s kid, I hope your answer is yes. 
I remember being very young and a friend at school asked me, “So what else does your dad do?”  I didn’t understand.  I said, “Well he’s just a Pastor. That’s what he does.”  The kid looked at me and said, “Well what does he do the rest of the week then?” Funny how kids see things, right? But the truth is many adults don’t understand what sort of relationship they can have with their pastor on a regul…

Get Up And Live

Dear Adoniah,
This morning you didn't want to do anything or go anywhere. Your hair was a mess and you didn't want to change out of your sweatpants. But I made you change into a cute outfit. We put your hair up. We went to a little shop in Indianola. Your eyes lit up for a pretty necklace. I got it for you. We walked outside to the most beautiful, gentle snow falling softly. As we walked with our brown shopping bag toward the bakery, you said, "Mom, it feels like I'm in a movie!". It did feel like that. It was absolutely random, and special, and it felt like a touch of a restored heaven and Earth. Maybe someday you'll be sitting in your home, and you'll be sad, and you'll not want to get dressed or fix your hair. Maybe life will seem empty. Maybe it will feel like something is lost. I don't know if you'll remember the chocolate peanut butter cup you picked at the bakery, or the bite of the chocolate mint creme that you had of mine. I don't …
