Hello from Kathy Collard Miller, writing from the beautiful desert near Palm Springs, California.

It’s the New Year and I’m going to have to remember to write down 2017. And along with a new year often come the traditional resolutions. I’d like to encourage you to think a little differently about those. For instance, have you ever said things like:

  • I’ll never get angry again. 
  • I’ll always show love toward that person who is unlovable. 
  • I’ll never be discontent again. 
  • I’ll always be joyful in every circumstance. 
  • I’ll have my devotions every day?

It’s easy to think that such determination will bring us success. We may think that God demands such commitments. But have you noticed that when we can’t follow through, we get discouraged and give up? Even thinking God has given up on us also?

DianneBarkerDianne Barker here again with my friend Gideon. Remember, God chose him to save Israel from the Midianites and called him a mighty warrior…while he was doubtful and afraid (see October 17, 2016 blog post).

We’ll pick up the story as Gideon prepares to carry out the mission (Judges 6-8). Being a journalist, I’m claiming literary license to interview this courageous hero. Our conversation might have gone like this. Read More →

Greetings from Kathy Collard Miller in the desert of Southern California where we are finally seeing the end of the heat and welcoming cooler weather.

Driving down a California freeway on a superbly beautiful day of fluffy clouds, I just felt very happy. My happiness pressed my foot against the accelerator as I didn’t see the Highway Patrolman until the red lights from his cruiser caused me to pull over to the side of the road.

He came up to my side of the car and asked me questions. Then I said, “I don’t expect you to not write a ticket but my husband will ask me if I told you that he’s a police officer in Huntington Beach.” I gave Larry’s name.

He didn’t smile as he walked back to his cruiser. I was getting a ticket and deserved it.
