Under Construction (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! My husband’s father was a CARPENTER. He had many TOOLS in his possession so he could make beautiful things. When you feel that you’ve been HAMMERED too hard and all you see is SCREW UPS in your life. Remember God is not done with you yet. You are still under CONSTRUCTION. God SAW … Continue reading

Fishers of Men (by Becky Rommel)

Gift from the Heart (by Becky Rommel)

Good morning!! My sister sent a very exclusive necklace to Hannah for her birthday. It’s a heart that reads “Please Return to Tiffany’s & Co. of New York” with a special numbered stamp on it.

Race Day (by D.A. Cobb)

It is almost a rite of passage living in the Midwest to be a racing fan. I am no exception. I went to 18 consecutive Indianapolis 500’s and have attended many other oval track events. It gets in your blood. One thing they all have in common is the pre-race ceremonies. There are the driver … Continue reading

Pick Up the Phone (by Becky Rommel)

Good morning!! I’m sick of searching for my cell phone. If I could physically attach it to my body I would!! One great thing about the old home phones were at least we could find them. They were always in the same spot, connected to the main line. How’s your connection with God? Are you … Continue reading

Potato Truths (by Becky Rommel)

Unfinished Business (by Becky Rommel)

Good morning!! Driving to work I always look at a empty house west of Spencer Indiana. It was built at least 15 yrs ago and they never finished it, never moved in. It always makes me sad when I drive by. What events in these people’s lives caused this to happen? It represents failure and … Continue reading

Shortcut (by D.A. Cobb)

Last evening I attended the monthly marketing meeting at my church. It is a wonderful group of talented writers, photographers, graphic design artists and computer experts. They are a dedicated bunch eager to spread God’s Word both here and around the globe. The building is undergoing a major remodel so we were relegated to the … Continue reading

Grow Up (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! I bought BABY gifts for two NEW ARRIVES. I’m excited to watch them GROW UP. When we are BORN AGAIN in Christ there are SMALL STEPS to take so we don’t FALL. The most important part has already been done, Christ DELIVERED YOU. Now the RECEIVING BLANKET of forgiveness is always WRAPPED AROUND … Continue reading

The Delaware (by D.A. Cobb)

When I was a young boy my family took a few summer vacations to a farm in Pennsylvania. One of the nearby attractions was the Delaware River where we would fish for small and large mouth bass, enjoy hours of boating and do lots of swimming. One year it was particularly dry as rainfall amounts … Continue reading

The Grace Cycle (by Becky Rommel)

God’s Eyes (by Becky Rommel)

Good Morning!! I noticed God when I was just a small child, a PUPIL. God and my world around me LOOKED so big, everything was DILATED. I VISIONED big things in my life. But it was my VISION not God’s. I didn’t want to FOCUS on God. And in a BLINK, God’s image became nothing … Continue reading

Unconditional Love (by D.A. Cobb)

Unconditional love is beautiful to watch. I saw it first hand while recuperating from knee surgery. It came from an older couple, I’d say in their eighties, and their expressions of tenderness and love will remain forever treasured in the heart of this yearning romantic. I first saw them in the physical therapy room where … Continue reading
