Just A Drop Can Change The World

Dedicated to Sean Mccleary…

Imagine the life of a gift; just one dollar can wet His Kingdom with living waters.

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of livingwater.’” John 7:38

We all need laughter, but the depth of a tickle

can be the Holy Spirit

stirring us awake from a slumber of complacency!



Monday Manna Moment Life in Crisis



I am Chicken Little when it comes to the hard stuff. I want to run saying,

“My sky is falling.”

This testimony and sermon is life changing. The faith and vulnerable counsel herein is the real thing. Open witness from these authentic Christians inspires higher and broader skies in a threatening horizon.

Thank you Johnny and Roxanne for your courageous faith, life and cherished friendship!!!


Joy: Heart and Eyes

 I’ve been thinking… It is hard for me to feel joy…

About the reality of joy from a Christian perspective. In discussions, the divine mystery gets muddied as the dust of this world smears our tears.

With God’s help, this is what my thought life penciled out. . .

JOY is not a hue heart

JOY looks forward with eyes to the eternal.

Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and joy are in His place.

1 Chronicles 16:27

Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord; For He is coming to judge the earth.

1 Chronicles 16:33

When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:7

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

Psalm 16:11

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

Psalm 30:5

Therefore, let us consider the life changing perspective. . .



Look back over the mosaic Kathleen created for you.

Which image gathers joy with the eyes of your heart?

Can you guess my fav?

God Goes Viral

The battle can feel so isolated.  God heard my desperate pleas.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:14

You answered His call in a BIG way to armor up and wage battle for our LORD on my behalf!!!  Humble crocodile tears of great gratitude shed in response to your generous offerings.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In His love and mine, TWE

 “Fallingwater” Stained Glass by Frank Lloyd Wright

It is my constant prayer that my girls will absorb, live into and share the extravagant love of Jesus.

Still, I’m seeing unique fragments of light in each girl that continues to my enjoyment and challenge me to reflect through them.  Certainly they are more than a simple one in the complexity of the kaleidoscopic design of their Creator.

Hope:  crescendo of melody

Ashlyn:  prisms of color

Megan:  intuitive intention

Kathleen:  compassionate complexion

Look, dear readers, for fragments of light in family and friends.  God wants to use you in piecing together His stained glass window of His love.
