Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest.

Mercy Ships® and Happy Endings

mercy shipsLately the song that's been playing incessantly in my brain is the tune that didn't win an Oscar--Happy.  (There's a reason it's stuck in my head--but that's another story!)

It certainly isn't a "Christian" song ... but, then again, it seems to me that if anybody ought to be happy [joy-filled, positive, upbeat, glad-hearted], it'd be those of us who have every reason for it because of "the hope within us."

Happy is what I feel at the end of many of the reports from The Africa Mercy.  The stories of lives transformed ...

Proof of Life

Mattes and TadasWhile I don't travel extensively, there was a recent article in the LA Times travel section which caught my attention -- it was about how to keep your possessions safe at a hotel.

"Haven Today" Celebrates 80 Years

Haven Today

I still remember the day Jon and I met Charles and Janet Morris as Charles had been invited to consider joining HAVEN--it's hard to believe that's been well over a decade ago!   

I have heard my parents recount the story of Haven's remarkable founding many times--a once well-known radio personality whose life ended up in shambles, coming to Christ in a hotel room with a Gideon's Bible.  A homeless alcoholic, Paul Myers was transformed spiritually--and just a month after his salvation, "The Haven of Rest" with its "First Mate Bob" was launched.

Choosing to Praise

My refrigerator is on its last leg. I'm helping my mom navigate multiple doctors' appointments as she faces health challenges.  My son hasn't heard from his college of choice.   Time is a commodity and it's scarce. Among the many blessings in my life there's room for moments of disappointment and doubt. Though my "lows" of late are not valleys by any means (I think of dear friends battling cancer, losing jobs and some, struggling to save marriages), they're my disappointments; my life.

Sometimes, dare I say, praising Him doesn't come as easily.
