Awwww so PRECIOUS

Awwww so PRECIOUS

by Rhonda Barrett ~  When describing a baby, people often say, “Awwww so precious” and they are right. But you know what?  That “baby”—no  matter how young or old—never stops being precious. So many people are living like I used to live because they think like I used to think.  I was precious as long […]

Love like God

Love like God

I remember when my boys were little they had a music tape of scripture songs.  They memorized this scripture song from the King James.  I can still hear their little boy voices in my mind and heart, “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of […]

God Remembers!

God Remembers!

It was pitch black outside.  I was far away from the bright lights of any big city and was driving to an interpreting assignment about 5:00 in the morning.  I was in the middle of nowhere and the only car on Highway 7. All of a sudden there was a bright flash that lit up […]

Jesus In – Clutter Out

Jesus In – Clutter Out

by Rhonda Barrett ~  Happy New Year Moms and Dads!  2012 IS HERE! Today is January 1.  The house looks cluttered; it’s bothering me.  All that Christmas stuff is everywhere.  So I began taking the Christmas decorations off the walls, the shelves, the little tables, and piling them up in the dining room.  At the […]

Simeon’s Moment

Simeon’s Moment

by Rhonda Barrett ~ “The church we visited in Chicago, after the Deaf Nation Expo, had an amazing painting hanging on the wall.  It was very unique and I stared at the expression of the man in the painting.” The title of the painting was “Simeon’s Moment” by artist Ron DiCianni. I shared with Gary […]

Thanksgiving and I’m thankful for CFNI

Thanksgiving and I’m thankful for CFNI

Our first born son had become a man. The day arrived way too fast—the day he left our small town of 5,000 people and moved to the “Big D”, population 2 million plus. This morning I am thinking about Christ for the Nations Institute (CFNI) and giving thanks to God! CFNI is where our oldest […]

It seems like yesterday that…

It seems like yesterday that…

by Rhonda Barrett ~ I cannot believe it!  Just a few days ago the leaves on the trees here in Oklahoma were still green. Then, all of a sudden, they began to change colors…bright reds, oranges, and yellows. Yesterday I took a picture because I wanted to show you how beautiful the colors on the […]

Harvest Time

Harvest Time

by Rhonda Barrett ~ I closed my eyes and randomly opened the book putting my hand on the opened pages to save the spot.  No, it wasn’t my Bible and I wasn’t trying to get some kind of mysterious message from God.  I was just in the mood to read something, but not sure what.  […]

C.S. Lewis always gets me thinking

C.S. Lewis always gets me thinking

God may not be “safe” as far as our human understanding of the word “safe”.  I mean…for those of us reading through the Bible this year…think of all we’ve read so far in the Old Testament! Yet—God must truly be very good to send His Son, Jesus, to die for us!  Because of THAT, my […]

Your Word is Beautiful

Your Word is Beautiful

Today in my quiet time with the Lord, I had my pen ready, got my journal out, and began to write.  I always start by writing the date.  So I wrote “Thursday, September 15.”  As I sat quietly before the Lord, the thought came to me how for years I always used to read from […]
