Below the carpet, beneath where people walk

Is a village of dust with creatures that talk

A village of wonder, of faith and good cheer

A crowd full of creatures that no one can hear

But once in a while a threat from above

Makes all the Dustanians rally in love

To save their quaint village from danger and fright

The spiders, the dirt and the dust must unite

Together in faith they’ll hustle and bustle

To rescue their town, the town of Dusternuffle

This is worth it…

A long time ago there was a whisper that grew into a passion that evolved into a dream that shaped into a reality. When we advertise for women’s retreats, it is far from a “whim”. It is a call on our hearts from God. We have been planning the Re-Zestify Women’s Retreat and slots are filling, but there is still room for a few more. Only 10 days to register and slots fill at a first come first serve basis.

Women, you will not regret this! Men, treat your wives to a much needed weekend away. Brothers, help a sister out! Sister, make space for you and God! Now is the time to answer the call. We have been asking God to call His women, who He wants to come and just ask yourself…is it you? Is it someone you know? Is it your sister? Your mother? Your wife?

Wondering if you should come?? Here is what people said about the last retreat:

“I got so much more from this retreat than I ever could have imagined! I was in a high for days after leaving the retreat.”

“Life changing”

“Good food, Amazing fellowship, Soul searching, Great bible study’s, Fun games and wonderful crafts.”

“Beyond amazing”

“God-honoring, convicting, life-changing worth every moment”

“Amazing. Moving. Great. Wonderful. Spiritual. Healing.”

“God honoring. It was raw like your book. It was vital for us to be totally open and real.”

This is God, people!! He can do AMAZING things with the simplest “yes”! Say yes today and register yourself, your friend, your spouse…today before the slots are filled: https://www.eventbrite.com/…/re-zestify-womens-retreat…God is amazing in what He can do!

New Mercies

Today is a day of new beginnings and restored joy.  Today offers fresh breath, clearing air and hopeful resolution.  Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow carries no guarantee, but right here, right now, life is at hand.   “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;  they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. IMG-3337‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him’” Lamentations 3:22-24.  Not all days are full of joy, peace, or security, but God remains our portion through it all.  New mercies, He will bring, each morning.  In the middle of one of the saddest books in the Bible, Lamentations, is the promise of new life, stirring hope, and the faithfulness of a God who will provide.   It is of no consequence that these verses are placed in the middle of lamenting despair.  It is God’s way of showing us, that in the moments of today are the mercies of the moment.  Today may drain your spirit dry, but may God be the portion of mercy that satisfies your thirsty soul. Great is His faithfulness; bright hope for the morning.

LET IT SHINE Giving back at Thanksgiving and Christmas

IMG_0235

I remember as I walked through the compounds of Grand Goave’s Lifeline Christian Mission, I walked past a small little boy who was eating a simple rice and bean meal provided to him by Lifeline’s school. The meal was watered down in efforts to increase the portion size and fill the belly.  The boy was sitting on a half-wall next to his friend, donning the Lifeline uniform and playfully giggling with his friend as they shared lunchtime together.  In a world of instability and poverty, this lunchtime meal was something reliable.  Many kids on campus receive the same meal and portion size but purposely only eat part of the meal so that they can take back the rest of the food to their families.  Food is scarce; it’s not always guaranteed.  Hunger is the constant, the reliable, the feeling and misfortune they are accustomed to.

The innocence and playfulness of the sweet little boy caught my attention.  As I began to pass him in my stroll, I bantered making a “Mmmm” sound, pretending I was eating with him.  Without hesitation, the little boy stuck out his spoon, offering me a bite of his only meal.  My heart simultaneously overflowed and broke as I realized the pure generosity and trust this boy offered to me, a mere passerby.  He was wiling to share his meal with me, a stranger, a well-fed American.  I will never forget the beauty and weight of sacredness in that moment.  “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”  Matthew 5:8.

I struggle to share my fries or a split half a decadent slice of chocolate cake.  I can’t imagine sharing the only meal I had for the day especially with a stranger.  That boy pointed me towards the heart of Christ because he modeled Jesus to me—he gave without hesitation, he loved without cause.   It was a challenge to my own heart. “Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.”  Ephesians 5:2 (MSG)Solar Panel Collages4

Haiti has had a very challenging year, yet much of this remains out of the news.  Millions of dollars worth of petro funds have been “lost” by the government which has created a tremendous fuel shortage.  Riots, violence, and killings have ensued as the Opposition (Haitian civilians taking a stand) are seeking to get the government’s attention and ultimately overthrow the current president who they believe is responsible for the lost money.  Because of this, streets have been full of violent blockades and inflation has spiked.  It has made it very challenging for the Haitian children at Lifeline to get their steady source of food, since the schools have been on hiatus due to the violence.  Additionally, since there is such a fuel crisis hospital/clinics, the Children’s Home and the Lifeline compound have very limited fuel to run the generators that provide electricity and running water to these facilities.

This is where Lifeline needs your help.  First, please pray for Haiti—for the unrest to stop and for peaceful positive change.  There is a long oppressive history between the government and the people.  The people are desperately crying out for change even at the cost of their own lives.  Please pray for salvation of souls and the protection of the children.  Secondly, join the Let it Shine Initiative this Christmas.  “If the campuses at Grand-Goâve and Port-au-Prince had solar panels, they would not be relying on fuel for powerThe solar panels would provide power for the water pump, the administration offices, the clinic, the children’s home, and the mission houses. Installing the solar panels would also employ local Haitians, as we aim to get as many pieces sourced from Haiti as possible.” 1.  Notify your work, create an awareness group, gather your coworkers, show your church…if we could get 18 groups to donate $1000, then we would exceed our goal and play a part of bringing peace to the chaos in Haiti.  Please share this with others.  If you personally would like to contribute visit:

Do It For Me

I feel the weight of the Creator as I inhale deeply.  Something is brewing.  The immense beauty of this place, this moment, His creation.  “What is it Lord?” I ask.  “Is there something you want to tell me?  Although I know you don’t have to.  I don’t deserve it.  Oh but if you are willing, give me ears to hear.”

I look out across the expanse of rich beauty–the lavish luster of the limitless lake.  The sun is setting, cascading rays on the glistening ripples.  The backdrop of the lake—crimson mixed with pines, in mountainous form revealing an underskirt of clay rock.  The tiny sparrow flies by.  The whip of the fishing rod hisses to kiss the lake’s crest as the ants busy themselves underneath my picnic table retreat.  I look up to see the mighty oak planted firmly in the water.  It’s decades, maybe over 100 years old, sheltering this alcove—straight, tall in righteous rebuke.  Too much beauty to take in.  My heart is filled, content—this is life. IMG-7871

“Oh so filling, Lord” my soul bursts out.  A sparrow lands on the patch of leafy lake debris, perching so picturesque; completely oblivious to the majesty and wonder it carries.  It tilts it’s head and my heart’s mind can’t help but overflow.  Oh the serenity of it all.  My heart cannot contain it all.  Something in this place captivates me.  “What is it Father?  Oh please share if you are willing.  Even if I don’t like the answer?”

The still, soft Voice:

“Do it for Me, Child.  Do it for Me.”

That is what it is all about it.  “Do it all as unto the Lord” Colossians 3:23.  “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked” Psalm 1:1-6.  My delight must first and foremost and always be in the Lord.  My delight is in His law and on it let me meditate, because then I will grow where I am planted and not wither away.  It is from God that comes my strength, my endurance, my approval.  He is what it is all about.  Oh “taste and see that the Lord is good” Psalm 34:8.  Take in His Splendor.  Create for Him.  Abide in him.  Run the race marked out before you, arms back, heart abandoned…don’t look left, don’t look right…look straight at the Creator.
