Last Monday was typical with my usual lunch visit to the gym for a workout. Monday can be a hard gym day if for no other reason than the weekend is over and we are back at it! I usually have a conversation with a guy who is a gym regular (I’ll call him Bob) and we often discuss getting the Monday workout behind us. This week was no exception as Bob and I talked it over. As he was leaving, Bob made a remark that went something like, “you know the good thing about Monday is that it’s only four days ’til Friday”. Only gym talk but this simple chit-chat brought some additional thoughts to my mind.READ MORE
Having an opportunity to spend some time in Israel a few years ago almost seems like a dream. What a tremendous privilege and blessing. Visiting places where God chose to take on human form, live, walk, work, minister, die, and rise from the dead is overwhelming and beyond adequate description! It is our prayer that you enjoy a quick journey with us as we visit some very special places in the Holy Land during this Holy Week.
The Jordan River rises on the slopes of Mount Hermon, on the Syrian-Lebanese border, flows through northern Israel to the Sea of Galilee and empties into The Dead Sea! As you can see, this photo was taken in a tourist spot where people can be baptized in the Jordan!
“Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John,
to be baptized by him”
Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River and Christians from all over the world come here to be baptized! Butch and I both had planned to be re-baptized, but when I saw the fish and river rats, I reneged!!READ MORE
“Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.”
When it comes to social media, I was late to the party. It took me a while to warm up to the idea of getting on Facebook, I’ve only been on Instagram two years, I started blogging in 2014, and I have a Twitter that I hardly check. I think social media can get a bad rap, and rightly so…but it’s not all bad. Actually, I’ve really grown to love one…and that one is Instagram.
To me, Instagram has become a magazine of sorts. I love to relax and “thumb” through pictures posted by the 600+ people that I follow. And the content they post runs the gamut. On any given day as I look through my feed, I see everything from home decor to beautiful travel destinations to make-your-mouth-water food to pigs dressed up as Alabama fans…yep, you read that right! Today I want to share some of my favorite Instagram users with you…and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do everyday!
