You Need to Love Me More

I love coffee in the morning – the smell, the warm mug in my hands, the taste. It starts my morning out well. I also love the smell of rain. It fills the air and reminds me of my childhood when I would play outside in the rain. I love my husband and my family. Have I told you about my grandsons? I love it when Rye and Roman see me and start yelling, “Gigi, Gigi! I missed you.” Bear hugs and kisses follow. It just melts my heart. I could go on and on.

Observing Trends

Peter Lynch’s spot in the list of greatest investors stems in large part from his work with the Fidelity Magellan Fund between 1977 and 1990. During this thirteen-year period, the fund posted an annual average return of 29%

Room at the Table

My Thanksgivings were special in the mid-1960s. Dad was in the Air Force and we were stationed on the Japanese island of Okinawa. Our family of seven was financially challenged to make it on a Master Sargent’s salary but you wouldn’t know it on Thanksgiving Day. There was turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. Yes, there were many other wonderful dishes served but I always found myself seated where the large Anchor Hocking mixing bowl of mashed potatoes was setting. The gravy was also nearby and the purpose of the turkey, at least for me, was to make the gravy to go on the mashed potatoes.

Faith and Giving

The essence of faith is clearly defined for us in Hebrews 11 where it says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see,” (NIV).

You Catch More Flies with Honey

One of my daddy’s favorite sayings was “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar!” Even though my daddy has been gone for over twenty-five years, I can still hear that in my head. It is ever present in my conversations with others. When I answer the phone or someone comes to my office, this saying flits across my mind.

God Don’t Make No Junk

I spent last week with the TBA Disaster Relief Team ministering in Victoria, Texas, where Hurricane Harvey hit and spent a while wreaking havoc. The group we were part of provided food, necessities, chainsaw help, roof tarping, and removal of wet drywall, floors, and ceilings. So far, we have addressed needs in almost 500 damaged homes in Victoria. We also prayed with thousands of people, and have seen over sixty people come to faith in Christ!
