Happy Thanksgivivg 

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and family! 

Praying we can all give thanks during this wonderful season!

While this is a special time of year, there are those who are having a difficult time. Let us pray for them and remember that God draws near to us in our sorrows and difficult times. Friends, family, health and finances can be hurtful, discouraging and disappointing.

Shepherd Song 

Shepherd Song                                                        words and music by Michael Burke

  

All we like little sheep had gone so far astray

We closed our eyes, turned our heads and went our separate ways

Then the Shepherd of our souls came to take us home

He came to us and gave His love when we were so alone

 

Now there’s trouble in the flock

I heard someone holler wolf

He’s created quite a shock

But still the Shepherd’s in control

 

Now if you find you’re alone and you have lost your way

Mother's Day 

  Mother's Day always reminds me of the passionate, sacrificial love a mother has for her children. She will march into the fires of hell to rescue them with no concern for herself.

I walked up to get a closer look and realized there were some branches with lots of figs and some with a few and some with none. There were other branches that didn't look so good and some that were wilting.  God brought to my mind the parable of the vine and the branches found in the book of John chapter 15.  Jesus is the vine, we are the branches and the fruit is the evidence of…

Living instead of dying 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.
As I think about the busy lives we all lead and the things we occupy our precious time with I wonder, what's it all for? We can do nice things for people, invent things to make life easier for others, spend millions of dollars to feed the hungry, find a cure for cancer, find a solution to our political nightmares (yeah right). You find a cure but then they die, you feed them so they can

Contemporary Christian Music 

Music is an expression of the heart and soul that can truly influence our mood and thoughts. I believe God created music for the angels to sing praises and fill the heavens with glorious melodies, harmonies and sounds that man has been trying to imitate since the beginning of creation. God inspires and has written through mankind the most wonderful music (only a pale glimpse of what awaits us in heaven) to draw us closer to Him. We in turn sing His praises to declare the magnificent power, honor, glory,
