Grace for the day

I sat waiting to pull out onto the highway, and the line of cars was a far as the eye could see. I thought, “Wow! I’m going to be here awhile.” Then, after about 10 seconds, a car deliberately slowed down to let me pull in. I smiled and waved, grateful to the lady for letting me in.

One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
