Restoring the Wounded

Broken Resolutions

January 17th, 2018

Did you make a new year’s resolution? Have you fallen off the wagon yet? Oh, excuse me for a moment; the dessert I promised not to order just showed up! You know the feeling. Condemnation, disappointment, failure…the list goes on. January 1st: You are determined to stay committed to your plan. January 2nd: No one […]

Merry Christmas?

December 18th, 2017

There is a war raging. It fights against everything good, everything holy, everything decent. It even fights against history. It’s as though, all of the sudden, we are all supposed to accept everything opposite of what we’ve always believed or stood for. I never thought I’d see the day the two words at the beginning […]

358 Days to Go!

November 30th, 2017

Whew! I’m glad that’s behind us! Thanksgiving. You know…that one day a year we MUST be thankful. For some, thankfulness is harder than others. Have you seen my bank account?   Have you met my mother-in-law?   Did you hear what the doctor just said?   Thankfulness is not a holiday; it’s not an action; […]

Twice As Bright

November 1st, 2017

Over my years of ministry, I have been told so many times, “Slow down, Dave! You’re burning the candle at both ends!” I just cannot comprehend slowing down, when world conditions are deteriorating at a pace so maddening that I cannot possibly extinguish one end of a burning passion and expect a positive outcome. It takes […]

Recently, a gentleman shared a story with me that touched me deeply. When his son was born, his heartbeat was extremely fast. The hospital had his baby’s body connected to multiple machines, monitoring every beat of his heart and other vital signs. They could not get his heartbeat regulated. A nurse suggested he hold his […]

Looking Up!

October 18th, 2017

This world is mad. The news is a daily onslaught of mayhem. Things that were once common sense are being questioned. Standards we live by are up for a vote. Even history is being challenged and patriotism debated. I hate it all. I didn’t fight for chaos and confusion. I did fight for freedom and […]

Colors of Fall

October 11th, 2017

I love fall! I love it for so many reasons. It is the start of the holiday season, with the anticipation of cooler weather, family time and of course, pumpkin spice everything! I love to see the beautiful foliage as it changes colors, painting the landscape with the most gorgeous array, like paint on a […]

Georgia FFA

July 13th, 2017

Mr. Roever,   What an absolute joy it was to have you serve as the kickoff speaker for the 89th Georgia FFA Convention. In the 27 years that I have been attending state and national FFA conventions as a student and staff member, you are easily one of my all-time favorites. Your message resonates so […]

A Lesson Taught by a Two-Year-Old

June 28th, 2017

As I was sitting in the airport over the weekend, a sweet sight caught my eye. If you’ve ever been to a large international airport, you know it is nonstop activity. People are walking, running, yelling, talking on their phones and having conversations about the excitement of the trip they are taking. It can be […]
