(picture from usa.usembassy.de) The parades are fun, the games are competitive and sometimes the family get togethers are just as competitive and dramatic ;) But one thing I hope we all remember on this day goes along with the following scripture: Psalm 95:2-3 Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.

What The Bayou Saw
Kregel Publications (March 24, 2009)
by
Patti Lacy


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Though Patti's only been writing since 2005, she thinks her latest profession of capturing stories on paper (or computer files) will stick awhile.

The Still, Small Voice encouraged Patti to write after a brave Irish friend shared memories of betrayal and her decision to forgive. In 2008, An Irishwoman’s Tale was published by Kregel Publications. Patti’s second novel, What the Bayou Saw, draws on the memories of two young girls who refused to let segregation, a chain link fence, and a brutal rape come between them.

The secrets women keep and why they keep them continue to enliven Patti's gray matter. A third book, My Name is Sheba, has been completed. Patti's WIP, Recapturing Lily, documents a tug-of-war between a Harvard-educated doctor and an American pastor and his wife for a precious child and explores adoption issues, China's &…

Early Light Devotional - In Touch Ministries - Dr. Charles Stanley 2009

A child's perspective

My four-year old is always up to something. She's either running wild through the house or saying something I find really intelligent for her age. Here are a few things she's started saying or doing within the last few weeks...

1) She's learned to tie her shoes.

Now, she likes to tie her shoes, my shoes and her daddy's shoes!

2) She's learning more about Jesus.

She'll see a cross I have hanging up at home or in a picture... she'll look at me and say: Mommy, Jesus died on the cross.

That's right baby, He did. For us.
