Developing a Child-Like Faith

Developing a Child-Like Faith

As I carried my granddaughter up the stairs of the old 1910 house, each step creaked loudly, echoing the sounds of yesteryears.  I imagined how many times the stairs were climbed as a little child was carried off for nap time. The day was struggling between releasing its summer warmth to embracing the coolness of […]

The Lake of Life

The Lake of Life

My husband’s family owns a cabin up north.  It’s nothing spectacular or fancy, but just a very simple structure that sits up high on a grassy hill, overlooking a lovely lake. From the wrap-around deck, you can relax and nestle into a comfy chair, sipping your tea, while busy little hummingbirds flit about you, sipping […]

When Others Say No

When Others Say No~By Kathy Weckwerth Over the years, I have had people say, “no,” to me.  Not about volunteering, or sharing, or giving me their new Lexus, but “no,” when they think I shouldn’t do something, go somewhere, become someone.  They bluntly and boldly say, “No … you can’t do that.”  To which I […]

The Ride of Our Lives

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth The past few weeks for me have been like a roller coaster ride at Disney World.  Emotions have been at an all-time high, sleep at an all-time low, and patience has been wearing thin. Our end-of-the-year conferences weren’t coming together like they normally do, and Farmer Dean was experiencing chest pains.  […]

Always a Quarter to Nine

By  Kathy A. Weckwerth ~Scripture:  Matthew 14:  22-33  The busyness of Christmas raced by, along with moving two of our children into their new homes, and I found myself exhausted.  I woke up this morning to the winter wind howling outside my window, and the cat meowing for her morning breakfast.  Things settled in around […]

Closed Doors & Date Number 24

This past year, I gave the same plea to our ministry’s conference attendees.  Over and over, I told them that when you find yourself standing in front of a door that God has very evidently closed; don’t try to force it open.  If you’re anything like me, there have been times when you have noticed […]

Does Your Anchor Hold?

Does Your Anchor Hold?

Mark 4:39 (NKJV) “Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” Have you ever been outside when the winds and the rain begin to instill in you a desperate fear?  Last night, while driving home from a nearby city, […]

Harvest Rains

Harvest Rains

The rain pelted against the window shield and we heard the squeak of the wipers as they brushed back and forth … back and forth.  Farmer Dean and I were on our way to run some errands since he couldn’t work in the field.   I looked at his face as he drove, intent on […]

Our Plans or God’s Best

Our Plans or God’s Best

“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21  The day was challenging at best, as my middle daughter looked across the table and said, “I can’t do this.  I can’t move to another state and leave my family behind, my boyfriend, my friends … I […]

The What-Ifs and the What-Nexts?

The What-Ifs and the What-Nexts?

“Matthew 9:21-22  … “… If I only touch His cloak I will be healed.  Jesus turned, and seeing her He said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.   So many times in life, we are faced with the “what-ifs.”  My husband, Farmer Dean, loves the […]
