Decades passed entrenched in great, deep abiding hope Continue reading
Oh folly of man, oh arrogance of my kindred, whilst thou would not humblest thyself in the knowledge of thy God and recognize His greatness amidst the bottomless quality of thy immeasurable comparative insignificance, others accomplish His will whilst thy bosom remains empty.

Remember, our needs are met in Christ Jesus even as the Flowers of the field.
It’s just that sometimes we don’t feel or understand where God is going with our lives.
For your edification and enjoyment…
In great beauty you are spun from soil and air,
Light from distant sun and seed of formers fair;
Then with great beauty once again you are spun,
Until in your juniors your face smiles towards distant sun.
Days of pastel blues and lusterless reds could fill the inevasible blind pages to come. I see the splendor of my own antecedence, or rather the privation thereof. Once bound in a twirl of youthful folly now I marvel, can they not see?
I think they too, as I once, choose drunkenly, willfully to be ensnared by the false comfort of never‑ending youth; the pervasive: “There will be time”.
Though I have traveled many roads and stumbled on paths bleak,
Let the beauty of your walk with God rise within you.
Let your spirit rejoice for His Spirit resides within you.
Let your mouth shout His praises – for His glories fill all worlds.
Let your fears be surrendered – walking in faith – knowing – He will take action as He sees fit!
Let your words and actions bespeak your walk in Him.
Let the beauty of your relationship with our Creator rise within you!
Just Let It Rise!

What are you learning?
If you were called upon to prepare a group of people for a wide-ranging existence…
Where they needed to love the unlovable and show kindness to those who did not seem to deserve kindness…
What kind of environment would you prepare for your people?
Would you not create an environment where the principles and characteristics of kindness and love were not generally displayed and seldom offered on a daily basis?
Wouldn’t you instead put your people face to face with Continue reading
Oh God, what if –
I were to You obey –
With all my life, through all my days,
endure my cross, obey Your will,
regardless the pain or strife I feel
Bear humiliations and sorrow’s
Brave disgrace and live bereft
Face the choice of a martyr’s short, short life
Just to live my life for Christ?

Shana raised her voice to get over Daniel’s loud demands, “Mommy, what’s that cooking on the stove? I want some too! I want some, mommy.”
Nancy and Tom looked over and saw a very large pot steadily bubbling on their kitchen stove.
The Musicians and Choir were just finishing their last stanza of Steven R. Harrel’s, “You Lift My Soul”.
Today was Johnathan and Annika Cole’s first service at Shire Community Church on the outskirts of Williams Arizona.
Dr. Freddy Anderson was standing near the church’s lunchroom chatting with Pastors Tom and Nancy Redic. Continue reading
(A short story by Steven R. Harrel)
When he awoke, Tom wasn’t sure where he was or how long he’d been unconscious. All he knew was that he was waking up to the blinding light of sunlight directly in his eyes.
Reflexively he reached up and pulled down the car’s sun-visor. Thoroughly disoriented, Tom found himself sitting in the front seat of his car in the driveway of his Williams Arizona home. He had no idea of what happened since the moment he’d passed-out or how he could have traveled nearly two-thousand miles while utterly unconscious. “How can I be home” he muttered to himself?
For just a moment Tom wondered if he’d dreamt the whole thing. “What a crazy idea.” he thought. “Maybe, just maybe I fell asleep in the car before starting the trip or somehow dreamt every one of those crazy, impossible events? What other explanation could there be?” he wondered.
“Whatever really happened,” he wondered, “could he trust what his memories were now telling him? Maybe it was all some strange influence from that watch?” Continue reading
