Responding to the Haiti Disaster

The earthquake and aftershocks in Haiti have left a poor country that much more desperate for the basic necessities.  Many Christian organizations living and serving the people of Port-Au-Prince are now faced with an even greater mission in the months (and years) ahead.  One of many Twitter posts following the quake expressed the enormity of the situation:

"I can't imagine the devastation this has caused to such an overly stressed city - I think it will be suffering for quite some time." 7:31 p.m. ET Jan. 12

"God Shows Up . . . " Anne Graham Lotz

Every January, I like to read (or "re-read!") books to help me refocus on God's direction in my life.  One of the books I'm reading right now is Anne Graham Lotz's The Magnificent Obsession.  

Here's the part of the book speaking to my heart today . . .

"And then it hit me: God shows up in the ordinariness of our day, doesn't He? . . . He shows up in everyday situations, as we are going about our everyday responsibilities in our everyday routines."

Choose Your Friends Wisely

I recall my parents saying this to me more than once growing up, but it's also important to ask yourself, "what kind of friend am I?"

Proverbs 17:17 says that "a friend loves at ALL times."

In her latest special, Elizabeth George asks women she knows to define the essentials to being a friend.  In their own words, the responses are both poignant and fun.

This Valentine's Day special is first of all about Jesus' love.  But it's also an encouragement of laughter and tears, a sharing of what God's Word says about . . . loving friendships ...
