Diana

Keeper of The Flame

Why should I be surprised, Lord? That I would have an amazing God-encounter at church today? Shouldn't that be the very place we have them all the time?  :) It was so like You, dear Abba... to use a child as Your messenger. A messenger who lived The Message without realizing it. She was the...

Forever Daddy’s Girl

 When did it start, Abba? This precious renewal of our Covenant? On my side, that is. Your side of our Covenant never wavers. If I ever feel far from You, it is because I have moved. And even if I have, You move with me. So You are always closer than my next breath, ready...

Moving Heaven and Earth!

It's a great expression in our culture. "Moving heaven and earth." An indicator of going the extra mile on behalf of something or someone. For one businessman, it was more than a slogan.

Pure Gold In The Ashes

You said, Abba, that "a little child shall lead them."  I know you meant Jesus, who came as The Child and now rules as The King.

Student senator Isabella Chow, at University of California-Berkleley. Isabella is a Christian.

Safe Space Innovation? Or Revolution?

News reports in recent years have been filled with images of university students (and outside agitators) shouting down conservative speakers and ransacking campus buildings. Creating "safe spaces" where students don't have to hear ideas with which they take exception. All in the quest to silence what "the powers-that-be" consider offensive speech. Hmm... Which powers? Maybe...

God to Skippy… Warp Speed!

Oh, Lord... Sometimes You just make me laugh out loud! It wasn't too long ago that we were poised to return to Florida. Closing up our summer retreat house in Virginia and making the trek southward. Back to the warm sun. Before the chilly weather froze me to the core.  :) Except for Skippy. The...

The Power of A Compelling Witness

When you're carrying the weight of the world, you never know who's watching. You might be changing their life. You recall Jack Phillips, the cake artist in Colorado?
