The weekend is almost here! What are your plans?
This webpage has moved. My new home is Kimberly A. Vogel. Please grab a cup of coffee and come visit!
I’m moving. Not physically, just this blog! I’ll announce the new webpage soon. For now, mark your calendar for May 13th! Until then, follow me on facebook to stay informed!
I am opening up two or three slots for a summer session of Educational Therapy. Using the NILD program, we will work on reading (decoding and comprehension), and math skills. More than a tutoring program, I address cognitive functioning and memory skills. Please contact me for more information.
Church is not a pastor.
Church is God’s people joining together.
Church is family.
God is redesigning what church is in my life.
Today a man loaded a lawn mower into an old van and met a friend at a church member’s house.
They mowed her lawn.
She tried to pay for the work. The amount she offered was a sacrifice, yet she gladly insisted.
The lawn mower man simply said, “This is my ministry.”
The work continued joyfully.
Being Jesus to someone doesn’t just mean preaching the Word or holding a prayer meeting.
Being Jesus to someone can come in the form of sweat and dirt and a lawn mower.
That is our ministry.
And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. Matthew 25: 40
Last week I confessed how I usually give up some goals when I fall behind. That night, not only did I see the value in reading God’s Word, I saw the value in not giving up. I also noticed the value of not giving up in another area.
I’ve shared with you before about my daughter’s struggle.
Last week, when we read the Bible together, she wanted a turn to read. She picked up the heavy family Bible, raised her voice, and read. Boldly. It wasn’t a children’s Bible. There were lots of hard words. She didn’t quit when she faltered. Frustration stayed away. She read. And read. And read. Verse after verse. Truth after truth. She read.
She showed me strength in the struggle.
It was beautiful.
I’m so thankful we didn’t give up.
