Precious in HIS Sight

by Rhonda Barrett ~ When I think about Easter–I am reminded of Grandma and Grandpa Cole. I loved going to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. It seems we visited them about once a year.  However, sometimes we would live with them for several months. And one time we lived with them for almost a year. I loved attending […]

More than just a paper blowing in the wind

More than just a paper blowing in the wind

We had a house fire in 1996. Hard to believe that was 19 years ago! It happened the Monday before Thanksgiving. Rex was home from Bible school and Luke was a freshman in high school. We were sleeping when the fire started. Gary smelled the smoke and woke us up. It was about 2:30 AM.  […]

Jesus loves me this I know

Jesus loves me this I know

by Rhonda Barrett ~ There is a story that I’d like to share with you. Sometimes I’ve heard a preacher tell this story. Other times I’ve read the story in an email that gets passed around.  The story is told in different ways but the main idea is the same.  Supposedly, this is a true […]

It’s 2014!

It’s 2014!

by Rhonda Barrett ~ Have you written the numbers “2014″ yet?  I have.  For some reason it felt so good. On January 1, I opened my Spiritual Journal and it was easy to remember the new date, the new year, and not make a mistake.  I didn’t write 2013.  I opened the new blank page […]

Holidays and Holy Days

Holidays and Holy Days

I woke up, made me a cup of coffee, and sat down in my “prayer chair”.  I decided today in my quiet time that it would be all about Jesus.  I wasn’t going to ask Him for anything.  I was just going to thank Him, praise Him, and worship Him.  I planned to be still […]

My heart and soul cry out, “Life is short!”

My heart and soul cry out, “Life is short!”

It is very hard for me to believe–this month I turn 60! It seems in the blink of an eye I was 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years old. It seems like yesterday I started first grade, attended my first prom, graduated from high school, met my husband, got married, had children, they got married and […]

I thank God for my Auntie Bootie

I thank God for my Auntie Bootie

by Rhonda Barrett ~  I thank God for my Auntie Bootie.  God miraculously saved her out of a life of alcohol and prostitution (she was like the Samaritan woman Jesus met at the well, John Chapter 4). My Mom told me stories about Auntie Bootie and the new person she became through Jesus Christ. I met […]

Still Not Easy

Still Not Easy

Most days, even after all these years, it’s still NOT EASY for me to make the time to have a “quiet time”.  In the morning when my alarm clock goes off I want to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep.  After all these years it’s still NOT EASY to open my Bible […]

Good difference or God Difference?

Good difference or God Difference?

God has a plan for our children’s lives.  Our children are divinely created by Almighty God to make a God Difference–more than a good difference–a GOD Difference in the world.  God has entrusted our children into our care, and it is an awesome responsibility. Psalm 127:4 is very interesting; it reads, “Children are like arrows in […]
