Cricket Symphony by Karen Jurgens

Have you ever heard the recording of crickets? Their chirping is slowed down, revealing an amazing song. Click on the link below to listen:


Pretty amazing, don’t you think? Now whenever I hear their chirping in the trees, I rejoice with them in praising God.

As the verse says, “Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord” ~ Psalm 150:6, NASB.

Wishing you a day full of the praises of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

When the Spirit speaks to us, we’d best listen…like Jennifer did on the bus that day! I invite you to read her thoughts.

Jennifer Slattery Lives Out Loud

If you’ve seen me in my sweat pants and favorite tattered nightshirt, chances are we’re besties. You can tell how close we are by how I dress around you and how long it took me to doll myself up. Before Bible study or church or speaking engagements, I fix my hair, put on make-up, and sift through numerous outfits. But most days, I’m in my writing attire, also known as pajamas, with my hair frizzed and mascara smudged under my eyes.

I reserve my most frightening moments for my family. (You thought bedhead was bad; try bedhead with rebellious, curly hair.)

Ladies, when did our value get tied up in our looks? Men, has your value become entangled in your strength or achievements? Both scenarios have the same root—pride.

When many of us read 1 Timothy 2:9-10, our minds instantly jump to modesty and all the ways we’re rocking this…

A Cat Tale

Could this be the problem in our prayer life…too much whining, too much bugging…not enough surrender and waiting? Great blog by my friend and author, Julie Cosgrove.

Where Did You Find God Today?

“Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for…” Job 6:8

I used to walk in the door at the end of my workday and find my cat sitting on his haunches, waiting.  Not because he missed me. No delusions here.  I know he waited for me to open the can of food since he has no thumbs. Now that I am working at home, he doesn’t get it. He thinks he can beg whenever he wants and as his dutiful servant I will pop another lid off a can.


“Not yet.”

Purrs louder. “Mew?”

“Nope. You have to wait.”


“I said, “No.'”

We have this battle often throughout the day until it is finally time to feed him.  Each and every day. Yep, gets on my nerves…

Then I thought…

Is this how I treat you, Lord?

Do I come to You…

Inspirations and Thoughts

I’ve heard, and it seems right to me that the evil one tempts us but God tests us. God never tempts us. The difference, as I understand it, is that the evil one tempts us by holding out something in front of us that looks desirable but would be harmful for us, something against what God wants. When God tests us, He does this to try our faith, our loyalty to Him. This is for our benefit because He knows ahead of time whether we will be faithful to Him or not. I think I got that mostly right.

God and Abram are having a talk. We’ve read that passage many times. So many that we probably don’t pause to think that this is a human being is talking with God. It just seems reasonable . . . in the OT, that is.

Some people would want to lock me…
