“Bless the Lord, O my soul,and all that is within me, bless his holy name!Bless the Lord, O my soul,and forget not all his benefits,”(Psalm 103:1–2, ESV) We have been awestruck by the devastation the extremely cold weather caused around Texas.

Trying to Follow 70 Degrees

A frequent question we often hear is: “Why did you decide to live in a 5th-wheel and not a sticks and bricks home?” Our usual response: “Our son lives in Idaho and our daughter in Texas. Idaho is too cold in the winter and Texas is too hot in the summer.” Thus, by having wheels…

He is Our Portion

“My portion is the Lord,” I have said to myself,  so I will put my hope in him.”  (Lamentations 3:24, NET) At first glance one might wonder what does our trailer roof, with all its repair patches (white), have to do with our verse? Perhaps nothing directly. However, it helped me (Bruce) identify a significant…

Another Project Month is History

“The heavens declare the glory of God;  the sky displays his handiwork.  … night after night it reveals his greatness.”  (Psalm 19:1–2, NET) We headed down to the lake to see the Christmas Star Monday evening. Yes, we did see it, but we also saw God’s handiwork in the sky as an added blessing. It…
