How great is HIS goodnes?

I am very thankful for the little things that God does to remind you that He loves and cares for you. 

We could never have known what these past six weeks would hold back in the winter when Rodney found the tickets to the Sci-Fi Spectacular. 

But HE did.

Last night was an amazing time of refreshment for both of us and I am thankful for it. 

Thank you Lord for your goodness to us! "For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty!"--Zechariah 9:17

It takes a storm now and then

Tonight, I am reminded that sometimes you have to go through some of these . . .

To enjoy these. . .

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. . .  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. . .  Oh that men would praise The Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men.
Taken from Psalm 107


"Rest in The Lord and wait patiently for him, fret not thyself . . . " --Psalm 37:7
The past few weeks have been challenging. 
Many of you know that Wednesday, May 8 was a tough day for our family. Because of financial issues, the college where Rodney has ministered for 10 years asked him to "take one for the team" and resign his position. He taught various Bible Classes and has Chaired the Bible Department for 7+ years. The president of the college has stated publicly that there were no "personality or performance" conflicts. The decision was "purely financial." He also stated publicly that if Rodney was the pastor of a church in the city where he lived, he would be pleased to call him pastor.
This is the official statement, posted on the college website here

It's Not Goodbye . . . See ya later!

Today, I must say goodbye to a life-long friend. 

Linda Summers Green entered my life as a middle school teacher and after high school graduation, continued as my friend. . .up until the end of her life. She was a blessing to everyone she met and she will be missed.

It saddens me that I will not be able to go to Tennessee today to honor the memory of this precious saint of God. I loved her very much and like so many others (friends, family, and former students) have already stated in much more eloquent words than mine, she made a tremendous impact on my life as a young person. 
She taught me to NEVER let anything stand in my way and that physical difficulty is no excuse to NOT serve the Lord. 

I am a blessed woman to have known her and to have been influenced by her.

Mrs. Linda Faye Summers Green, age 64 of Seymour, Tennessee passed away Saturday, June 8, 2013 at the University of Tennessee Regional Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. She was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Hillsv…
