Mary Did You Know?

Our Christmas sermon was on a song written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene called "Mary did you know?" Mark apparently wrote it as a poem for his church one Christmas and Buddy put it to music several years later. It's one of Pastor's favorite songs.Pastor pondered the questions in that song and asked a [...]


Christmas Eve Services at our home congregation are always beautiful. Every year, we have the Children's Program at 5 pm and the Candelight Service at 11. Our family likes to go to both. Every year pastor has a child read the Christmas Story (Luke 2:1-20). This year little Amber was chosen. Amber has grown a [...]

Cowgirls Don’t Cry – Ride Baby Ride

A Simple Note Really, it seems I’m ADD

Our Nativity

I was at the store the other day, and walked through the aisles in wonder. Our local hobby store (Hobby Lobby) is owned by a Christian family.
