Weekend Inspiration – 1 John 5:11 – O Come, O Come Emmanuel

By Missy Eversole / November 30, 2018 / 2

Throughout my childhood, one of my least favorite Christmas hymns was “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.”  It doesn’t have a catchy tune, and it certainly isn’t about getting presents or even Santa. It has a haunting melody and lyrics, and if you listen to it carefully, a desperate plea for saving. You can hear the…

Thanksgiving Then I sat cross-crossed on the floor in front of our wooden console television in eager anticipation of what was to come. I had been waiting all month for this one day.

Weekend Inspiration – Counting All My Blessings

By Missy Eversole / November 16, 2018 / 0

Happy Friday to you! As I stated in my previous post, we are knee-deep in show week. Grabbing dinner at fast-food restaurants, driving through Chick-Fil-A for sweet tea and late night studying has been our routine for the last few days. And you know what? I wouldn’t change a thing. In the midst of the…

The anticipation of sleeping in, spending time with family, and eating turkey and all the fixings is starting to fill our minds.

Weekend Inspiration – Psalm 7:17

Happy Friday! We are experiencing our first measurable snowfall of the season! It’s absolutely beautiful out! I have a love/dislike relationship with snow. I love how the gently falling snow covers the dull colored landscape. I dislike driving in it and  I really dislike that my 16-year-old son has to drive in it! A Birthday…

This past weekend was bittersweet for my family and I. After a few weeks of praying and family meetings, we decided to sell our camper and give up our amazing spot at a beautiful campground. The memories of all the fun we had while camping came flooding back to me, along with a few tears.…
