Severe Storm Warning Article from Kalkaska Church of Christ

Emergency Warnings

Kalkaska had a HUGE storm last night. Actually, most of the state of Michigan had storms. I know this because it was starting to get bad out, so I turned on the TV and there were Thunderstorm warnings all over the ticker at the bottom of the TV screen. The warnings are there so that we all know it’s coming and so that we can prepare. If you were watching TV last night or on the internet or even looked How COVID has affected us

A Grand Reception

In the book of Philemon (only one chapter long), Paul is writing to this guy named, you guessed it, Philemon, and to a lady named Apphia and the church meeting in Philemon’s home.  I don’t know if Philemon and Apphia are married, but it doesn’t really matter for us. Paul shares that he remembers them fondly because of the love they have, the faith they have, and the fact that they are sharing their faith.  And his prayer is that How COVID has affected us
Friendship Palm

Friendship Palm

I’ve never had a green thumb…in fact, I might be a serial plant murderer. When I receive a plant as a gift I smile and cringe inside. I wonder how long the poor plant will make it before I neglect it. One year for Mother’s Day I got two plants for my front porch. I kept them alive all the way until August! That was my record until one rainy day in November of 2019, a friend from my Titus 2 women’s How COVID has affected us
Letter From God

A Letter From God

“You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”  Those words were written by Paul in a letter to the believers at the Corinthian Church (2 Corinthians 3:2-3). We don’t write handwritten letters too much anymore, do we? It’s easier to write How COVID has affected us

Tough Questions in Genesis

At our most recent Root Beer Bar Bible Study, we read and studied Genesis chapter four. Challenging questions come up in chapter four, but there are also some firsts that come up in chapter four. The most challenging question is, “who does Cain marry?” The back story is that Cain kills his brother Abel in chapter four and God puts a curse on him that he will be a wanderer and a fugitive and that the ground (he was a How COVID has affected us
The Storms of Life

The Eye of the Storm

I have never liked storms. As a child, I would wake up during thunderstorms and go get into bed with my sister. I am trying to be more grown-up about storms, but I still don’t love them like some people. I know some people that REALLY like storms. My husband loves to go drive out to the water and watch a storm come through. But even lovers of storms, don’t love life storms. I don’t know anyone who likes storms How COVID has affected us

A culinary parable

A Culinary Parable

I am so happy to be able to eat again! My favorite restaurant has finally opened back up! Their menu is new and improved. They have the best cook in the area. My favorite meal, a cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato, steak fries, and coke is once again right down the street! Oh, how I have missed food. In case you are wondering, I stopped eating when the pandemic forced my favorite restaurant to shut its doors. I knew it How COVID has affected us
Manistee Church Roof

How Great is Our God?

Monday we started on the roofing project for Manistee Church of Christ.  I was told by the recon team (Jeff Badgero) that we were going to have to strip the old shingles off.  The job then became bigger in my head.  He suggested we have a plan to start stripping shingles so that we could re-shingle on Saturday.  The project became overwhelming in my head.  I had quite a few people tell me they couldn’t get on the roof due How COVID has affected us
