Liar, Liar

James 3:5 (KJV) Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!


The Hubster used to work as a welder in an elevator factory when we were first married. Uniforms were supplied to all workers and laundry was included. Every year, new uniforms were delivered to the employees. One time, management decided to make a change in style and ordered pants with cuffs. They never made that mistake again.

Being a gifted welder, The Hubster rarely made mistakes. However, even the most talented metal fabricator occasionally caused sparks to fly. Such was the case one cold winter day. As he worked on a large hunk of steel, The Hubster started to feel a warmth in his boots that spread up his calf. Glancing down, he realized a tiny spark had lodged itself in the cuff of his work pants and ignited a small fire. My darling man dropped his work and patted the fire out quickly. The damage was already done, however. The pants were a total …

Peace, Be Still

Friends, I have been meditating on the storms of life vs. the peace only God can provide. I wanted to share some Scripture that has spoken to my heart.

Psalm 107:29 (KJV) He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.



Mark 4:37-39 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Matthew 8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.


Isaiah 25:4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

Revelation 22:1-5 (KJV) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.


I spend a lot of time at work in Wichita, and on the road between there and home. The more time I spend away from home, the more I miss it.

On evenings and weekends, The Hubster and I cook meals, relax and talk about our day. Home has become a haven--from the outside wo…
