Huckabee’s Last Stand…in Faith

It’s almost spring in Texas! The grass is getting green around the edges of sidewalks and houses, trees and shrubs are beginning to bloom, and tulips are popping up all over the place. On Saturday the weather was so warm we needed sunscreen to be outdoors! But this is, after all, Texas, and that means that nothing is predictable about the weather. If you don’t like it, wait a minute. It’ll change. And that’s what happened to us last night.

Today I have become a … Continue reading Huckabillys, Unite!

Mysteries Abound In The Underdog

Life.  It’s teeming with the mysterious.  Scientists spend decades, even centuries, trying to figure out the inner workings of our physical bodies and our mental capacities.  We’ve created machines that take us soaring higher than eagles.  Computer technology allows us to know about events halfway across the world within minutes of them happening.  We can communicate with each other across thousands of miles while sitting in our cars or hiking in parks.  With all of these technological advances, the message of the cross to those who don’t believe seems…out of touch.  Who ever heard of someone coming back to life … Continue reading Mysteries Abound In The Underdog
