Better Than A National Championship

Posted by Andrew Knight on

Last Monday night, the Baylor Bears did what no one thought could be done: they beat the Gonzaga Bulldogs to claim the NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship and become only the second team in Texas history to win that title. In a matter of minutes, the Bears went from being an...

God’s Not Done

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

Growing up, my mom had this plant in our backyard called a Purple Heart. Purple Heart spreads like wildfire and grows anywhere. It is some pretty resilient stuff, and I’ve always liked it. Last summer, my little boy accidentally broke a pretty large branch off of one of her plants. Rather...

Your Monday After

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes...

Dark Glass

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as I am known. — 1 Corinthians 13:12 How can [God] meet us face to face till we have faces? — CS Lewis, Till We Have Faces Our dark glass keeps us from the Lord. It keeps...

Death Row

Posted by Pat Cooper on

Barbed wire twisted along the top of the 12-foot fence surrounding the 11-acre campus of the Ellis Unit in Huntsville, Texas. Although I couldn’t actually see anyone, the sense of someone perched in the guard tower, rifle in hand, watching as I drove into the ominous-looking facility, was...

Thank You, Jesus

Posted by Cheri Akers on

Thank you! It is something we say when someone gives us a gift. At times, it just rolls off the tongue as if it is a duty rather than a sincere statement. I used to work at a school, which gave me a new perspective on gifts. I really had to teach myself that, although perhaps I didn’t...

I went to high school with a guy whose nickname was Tiny. At 6’4" and a solid 285 pounds, he was anything but tiny. He earned his nickname due to his lack of aggression on the football field and in the weight room. Isn’t it crazy how someone can be one of the biggest, baddest dudes...

The World Needs Light

Posted by Steve Glenn on

Several years ago, I read a story about a minister who had grown up in London during WWII. He said that when he was 9 or 10 years old, he would get up every morning and go outside into the rubble that was left by the German bombers. One day he found a shard from a jeep’s broken mirror. He...

Your Handy, Dandy Fruit-O-Meter

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

After what some are calling “Snowmageddon,” I’m keeping an eye on our plants. Some still have lush, green leaves sprouting out all over them. Some even have buds. But y’all, it’s looking pretty rough for the oleanders. How will I know if they survived the ice storm?...

Known By Your Fruit

Posted by Randy Wade on

No one expects an apple tree to produce an orange, but everyone expects an apple tree to produce an apple. A tree is known for the fruit it produces. Apple trees produce apples. Orange trees produce oranges. We don’t need a deep and challenging lesson in horticulture to get our heads...
