Mustard Seed Budget

The more you think you know, the more prideful you are, the less you will depend on God. Not being a know-it-all, keeps you humble.

When I started ministry in Guatemala, I knew pretty much everything (or so I thought). By the time, I finished 16 years later, I didn’t know hardly anything. I had stubbed my toe more times than I can remember.

When he started playing football for UCLA my pastor, Rob Scribner, fought for a spot on the team. He stayed home, studied his

plays and studied his Bible. He got the spot. In his second year, he studied his plays and his Bible a lot less and spent more time enjoying his “celebrity status.” His game didn’t immediately dive, but it sure didn’t skyrocket like that first year.

He who comes to prayer, desires wisdom and direction from God. At the Lighthouse Church in Santa Monica…

Lucky you – two posts in one day.

Have to share with you the story behind this poem before I share the poem with you.

My relatives used to have annual family get-togethers. Usually, they rented a couple houses out in North Carolina and headed out there for a week or two during the summer months. Older Sister and Younger Brother once went with them, as a shared graduation gift.

In August 2000, the relatives had the family get-together out west, in Colorado. Specifically, Winter Park, Colorado, at the Gandy Dancer Lodge. And I got to go with them for the week and a half that they were there.

One of the best things about that trip was the whitewater rafting expedition we all went on. Now, we didn’t go on one…

Miss Polly's Dog Lucky

I rescued Lucky from the Animal Shelter many years ago and “Lucky” was the name the owners had who couldn’t keep him. He was the only dog not barking and is the sweetest dog and a lot of company.
I traded in my Rocket Scientist ex for him! The ex used to talk a lot more but the dog doesn’t have a color coded sock drawer!
