The Savory Secret of Spring: Mudbugs

post308pic1aWhen these little beauties decide it is time to crawl out into the sunshine of spring they have no idea they are about to get swooped into the nets of fishermen, and wind up being the main attraction at a crawfish boil. And yet, here they are. Are you up for a tasty treat of steamed creek creatures?

In all seriousness, I wonder just how hungry the person was who first decided he, or she, would eat one of these little delights. How hungry would you have to be? The name alone is a bit continue here

 Searching For Truth

Brian and I have been watching Leah Remini’s television series exposing Scientology, and it is more than intriguing. It amazes me that that this is called a church, or a religion, and that people are forfeiting their families and lives to be a part of it.

The people she interviews are all Scientology apostates; they’ve left the church after much abuse and heartache. They’ve left behind their families and friends. They’ve moved on. To where? Another continue here

Are You Thirsty?

post-237-pic1On the heels of our Thanksgiving over-indulgence, it’s hard to imagine that there is an unprecedented drought and famine coming, but there is, and hundreds of millions of unassuming people are in danger of dying from thirst and starvation.

This drought is coming, not because of continue here

Be Strong and Courageous

post 207pic3It is not easy being a Christian — it requires supernatural courage and strength; it is not a choice for the faint of heart. Christians must have thick skin and soft hearts. They must have inner strength coupled with meekness. They must live counter to the culture and stand firm as they contend for the Word of God.

This is why we teach our children about God. Children need to know God — his attributes and his character. They need to know that God is trustworthy and that he will never leave them. This is the only way continue reading here
