  • Just the other day coming back from Lexington an RV passed me and on the back window was the familiar quote: “I’m spending my children’s inheritance!”

    It got me to thinking about our inheritance as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    You know that if you are a Bible-believing Christian you have two inheritances. The question for a believing Christian is “Whose inheritance are you spending?”

  • Generally when my friend Tara and I get together food is both talked about and consumed.

    I taught her my secret to amazing stir-fry vegetables (season them with onion powder and dried red chili flakes), and she introduced me to pad thai and satay at a Thai restaurant.

    Last Saturday, to celebrate her birthday, she and I and our husbands went to a seafood, prime rib and sushi buffet where we, as always, both talked about and consumed incredibly delicious food.
