Cheryl Hughes: Extras

I have ten extra pairs of shoes…I counted.  I’m not talking about my personal shoes, like church shoes, tennis shoes, sandals and flats.  I’m talking about extra pairs of shoes in various sizes.  Some of these shoes have been worn by me or Garey or one of my daughters.  I’ve also picked up a few cheap pairs at yard sales.  I keep them for emergencies.  Not the kind of emergencies like the house is on fire, and I’ve got to jump into a pair on my way out or someone shows up at my door, wearing no shoes, although the extras would work in either of those situations.  The emergencies I speak of


Jarrod Jacobs: "Some Things We Cannot Change"

In the long ago, Solomon said, “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered” (Ecc. 1:14-15). This is a hard truth for many to grasp. Put simply; there are some things in life that we cannot change! In this article, I want us to note some things that men cannot change.


Andy Sullivan: Against The Grain

Recently I stumbled upon a few classic series’ being aired on IFC.  IFC stands for Independent Film Channel.  Although these days it just goes by IFC because they show more than movies.  A few weeks ago, I ran across a tweet where a follower of mine was mentioning the show Who’s The Boss.  That was one I hadn’t heard about in years.  I asked him where he found that show.  He quickly replied, “it’s on IF

“It’s just a slap in the face.  I mean, myself and several others laid our lives on the line for this country and now we are fighting for our lives because of this country.  Funny how that works.”  This was the text my niece sent me on Wednesday.

Jarrod Jacobs: Longing for God's Word

Psalm 119:20, 40, and 131 state very interesting thoughts. In Psalm 119:20, we read, “My soul breaketh (is consumed) for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.” Verse 40 says, “Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.” Verse 131 states, “I opened my mouth, and panted; for I longed for thy commandments.”
