Lifted High

An excerpt from chapter 21. Wind destroys, and wind lifts up.  “Sitting on a boat in open water in a high wind will make a strong stomach weak.

How wonderful it is that we serve a God who does not give us more than we can handle! Even in the deep places His hand guides us. He does not leave us to drown in our times of sorrow or grief or fear. He pulls us up to the surface just in time.

Thanking an Educator

September 24, 2012 Dear Ms. Flanagan, Yesterday, as our church honored educators, we watched a video about a neurosurgeon who contacted his middle school science teacher thanking him for encouraging him and telling him that he had what it took to be a brain surgeon. The video clip moved me, and instantly made me think…

A Sad Delay

Can I cry now? I was experiencing trouble with my new template for my Three Days at Sea book. I had been spending hours/days working on the formatting and adding little tidbits here and there.
