I'm going to share something with you in this blog that I've only been able to share with a small group of friends and with the deacons of our church, by the invitation from my friend and pastor, Ronnie Falvey. __________________ Last November 2017, right after we launched in [...]

Absolutely! – Part 14 – (Financial Absolute – 2 #prt 2)

By | February 2nd, 2018|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , |

When it comes to money matters, does the Bible "really" say anything about --- stinginess, craftiness, laziness, and stubbornness? And if there is even a smidgin' of those attributes a part of our life, what then? What will that look like in the area of our relationships, financial life [...]

Absolutely! – Part 13 – (Financial Absolute -2)

I will always be so thankful for what John MacArthur taught me on this one financial absolute - not only addressing 2 very critical biblical principles for our life concerning all money matters, but the 7 signs of someone who is living with the sin of materialism. I sure [...]

There is one Financial Absolute that is talked about over and over again, 1 out of every 10 verses, in the gospels. There is this one Financial Absolute that, out of 38 parables of Christ's in the gospels, 16 of them touch on directly. That is 288 verses in the [...]

Absolutely! – Part 11 – (Physical Absolute – 3)

By | January 26th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , |

When it comes to physical absolutes, the greatest temptation is to ... quit. To just lose the focus on the Temple (our bodies) and to give in to feelings of, "It doesn't really matter in the long run."  But in today's final physical absolute, the encouragement that Rene' and I [...]

Absolutely! – Part 10 – (Physical Absolute -2)

By | January 24th, 2018|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , |

There is an absolute for our physical life that the Word of God literally calls "good." It is a good. Not sorta good. Not a little bit good. And not good only if we see that it is good. The Bible says that this one absolute is GOOD. And when [...]

Absolutely! – Part 9 (Physical Absolute – 1)

By | January 22nd, 2018|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , |

This is probably going to be one of the most practical absolutes we cover - all 3 of the Physical Absolutes will touch on things that we literally can "do" and for some of us, these "do's" just may turn into some real PERSONAL CONVICTIONS. For example, today's Absolute [...]

Absolutely! – Part 8 (Relational Absolute – 3)

Did you know that there is something in the Bible that is so powerful, it literally holds every bit of God's promises in its core? God has said that as we daily draw near to Him, that we're to practice this ... ... literally, do it with increasing intentionality. [...]

Absolutely! – Part 7 (Relational Absolute – 2)

By | January 18th, 2018|Categories: Blog|

Have you ever noticed just how many verses there are that directly speak to us concerning 'how we relate with others?"  Our relationship with God is vital to our Christian walk, but your dating life, the health of your marriage, and your family and friend relationships also reflect on your [...]

Quick questions... when it comes to relationships in your life, which are: The most cherished? The most challenging? The most daring? The most difficult? The most meaningful? The most mean?

Absolutely! – Part 5 (Spiritual Absolute – 3)

By | January 14th, 2018|Categories: Blog|

"....Do not."  Just those two words alone, when we read them in Scripture, tend to cause our ears to perk waaaaay up. Just like when little kids want to get into somethin' they know they have no busy getting in to and all of a sudden they hear the [...]

A Mississippi Christmas

Mississippi Christmas. My gracious...just saying those two words floods my mind with memories and magnolia wreathes, evergreen stems and pine cones. With gingerbread and sugar cookies all iced and covered with sprinkles, with mounds of marshmallows in a Santa mug steaming with hot cocoa. With the sounds of Perry [...]

Holy Ground

By | December 6th, 2017|Categories: Blog|

Isn't it something how ... you change one word, just one small word, simply change just one preposition to something else and an entire emotion can instantly be colored with bright hues of renewed hope? You see, I was told lately that there is this particular season of life [...]

Decorating With My Neighbor

By | November 28th, 2017|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , |

When 8:30am came yesterday, I had no idea until I walked into my neighbor's home what an absolutely stunning and very welcoming home she had. I drive by her home every single day and Rip has provided some home care services for them, but it was when she swung [...]
