In the spring of 2010 archaeologists unearthed a 3,500-year-old door to the afterlife from the tomb of a high-ranking Egyptian official near Karnak temple in Luxor. This door was meant to take the one who had died from death to the afterlife. Another man found another door of a wardrobe through which his characters could enter into another world.  One called Narnia.  C.S. Lewis has gone on to become one of the great apologists for the Chri

I know that some have begun, but the time is coming once again, to plant the fields.  I love driving around the area and seeing the beautifully lined rows in the fields that shows evidence they have been planted and will soon be green with corn and beans. I find it amazing how perfect those rows are from one side of the field to the other.  I know it always wasn't that way.  Thanks to modern technology a farmer can plo

Have you ever had questions about life?  There are so many I still want to ask and have when I reach heaven.  Questions like, "How did you create all this?  What if I would have chosen this path instead of that one?" Jesus asked a question that should be first on any list?  He and the disciples were in Caesarea Philippi.  Call it the shopping mall of religion.  It was located in a region known as Paneon, or the home of

Only 14.3 acres big, it is a small kingdom unto itself.  Located in three separate areas in the United States, you can leave the U.S. and enter the Republic of Molossia.  It  is considered to be a micro-nation...a "nation within" our nation, (check it out http://www.molossia.org.) It has its own fl

The knock came at the door of the inn.  It was late.  We can imagine the innkeeper had been burning both ends of the candle.  The census crowd had packed Bethlehem and he had finally locked the doors for the night.  Until the knock.  He shuffled his feet through the dark and made his way to the door. Opening it, he peered out to see a young couple.  Looking more closely he saw a young woman who was about to give bir

I am amazed at how far computer technology has come in the last 10 years. They can take old footage of an actor that has died and using the new high tech bring them back to life visibly and audibly. There are times when I wish I could scan in my great-grandma Barlow, Papa Barlow and Grandpa and Grandma Asbill just to see them "alive" and to "hear" their voices of encouragement and love. Yet with all the amazi

Sometimes you may feel like life is just a huge gamble.  Maybe you feel like the outcome of your life is resting on how the dice roll or the chips fall.  If you get "lucky" then things go great but most of the time you feel like your life is always coming up snake eyes. There are times when the stars just seem to align right and you find yourself fully loaded with blessings.  Then there are times when eve

A few years ago I got a 1960's Dr Pepper machine that I intended to get checked out, recharged and working.  It is still sitting in the garage with stuff stacked on top of it as a great decoration. Nine years ago, Anita and I bought an old steamer trunk to refinish and use for blanket or game storage.  We like antique items that can be reused.  I started working on it this last summer and then tore my bicep (good

It is hard to believe but we are at week 18!  A lot happens in Scripture following the time Adam and Eve took that bite of the tree that God told them not to eat from.  As a result, they attempted the first cover up.  But since their leaf apparel was not very practical, God sacrificed an animal to clothe them.  The pair was then banished from the Garden and began life anew as exiles away from their homeland.

Sally Edwards is a highly esteemed third grade teacher at Jacksboro Elementary in Texas.  She was preparing her students for the equivalent of the Iowa Basic Skills Test and put together an exam to prepare them for it. There were 20 questions and number 11 on the test was this question: "List in any order the four seasons." Here at Harvest our mission is to help people discover Christ through the seasons of Life. T
