World Water Day 2015

At a recent Chaplain Spouse Coffee, we played a game where we were to write down 3 facts about ourselves and then others would have to try and guess who we were based on those facts. We learned some fun and interesting things about one another, I must say! One of the facts I wrote down about myself is that I am a water snob. It’s sad, but true. I am super-picky about the “taste” of the water I drink. My husband makes fun of me for it, since he really doesn’t think water has any taste anyway. Seriously though, I drink bottled water even at home because I can’t stand the taste of our tap water … [Read More...]

Monday Meditation

Monday Meditation

After hearing an interesting radio sermon on the subject of worry, I did some searching in my Bible. I was specifically looking for where scripture touches on worry as a sin. I couldn't find any passages specific to that. (If you can think of any, please share!) However, if sin is disobeying God, then worrying goes against Jesus' command in Matthew 6:34: Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. and Paul's words in Philippians 3:6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with … [Read More...]

Saturday Morning Review

The Saturday Morning Review–“Faith, Hope, Love, and Deployment”

During her husband David's last deployment to Afghanistan, Heather and he realized the need for a devotional that would not only draw them closer to the Lord, but also to each other while separated. They envisioned a combination of scripture memorization, stories of hope and struggles, a revitalization of the lost art of letter writing, and practical ideas for keeping connected during deployment. Not finding such a book, they began writing Faith, Hope, Love, & Deployment. Sadly, three months after beginning the project, David was killed in action. My heart broke when I read this … [Read More...]
