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
In the early formation of our nation Goerge Washington had the opportunity to become king of the newly formed United States. (We all know where kings lead, right?) But given the young nation's experience with England and because he had a powerful prayer life he knew there was only to be one King, so he passed on the offer. The people of the land apparently knew the same. "In a 1774 report to King George, the Governor of Bos
Do you remember the old Verizon Wireless commercials that had the "test guy" who would go to very remote parts of the country and he would ask the simple question, "Can you hear me now?" To show how reliable their network is. (I like the fact that he is now working for Sprint...lol!) The catchy phrase caught on as potential customers seemed to relate to the struggle to connect and stay connected as they traveled. I don't know about you, b
The decisions you make and the actions you take affect those around you. Rehoboam learned that lesson the hard way. Rehoboam followed his father Solomon to the throne of Israel. Solomon had put a heavy burden on the people by taxation and a building process through the land. A group of representatives, lead by Jeroboam, went to the new king and asked him to take away the heavy burden. In private, Re
Here’s something that might bring back memories for some of you. Think back to Christmases of your childhood: what was the symbol of all your Christmas wishes? How about the Sears or JCPenny Wish Book? Do you remember it from when you were a kid? My sister and I would scan the pages through the giant catalog and we would circle or tear out our choices and hope that Santa would deliver the "goods" on Christmas mo
We all have a story. Every one of us could share about our experiences as a child, or teenager. The stories of family feuds and times of laughter (Maybe even some new ones during these past holidays, YIKES!) If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, each of us has a story of when we realized we had sinned and needed to repent, ask for forgiveness and reconciliation from God and from man. We discover
