Just Keep Going!

Posted by Susan Ridgway on

I am a runner. Not a fast runner by any means. Not even a very good runner when you consider form or skill level. Basically, I just keep going. That is my gift. God has given me the gift of perseverance. (some might call it stubbornness)   This morning as I was running, I was praying. That...

One Voice

In Revelation 19:6 John describes worship like the "sound of a vast crowd or the roar of a mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder."  The sound was the voices of the redeemed worshipping God.  They were shouting "Praise the Lord!  For the Lord our God, the Almighty...

The Cause of Christ

Posted by Susan Ridgway on

"For we don't live for ourselves or die for ourselves.  If we live, it's to honor the Lord.  And if we die, it's to honor the Lord.  So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.  Christ died and rose again for this very purpose - to be Lord both of the living and of the...

King of My Heart

Recently, Ray and I went on a big adventure with our youngest son, Josiah.  We said "goodbye" to Anna and Zachary and began a journey that took us 3 flights and about 29 hours.  We landed in Sofia, Bulgaria and within in just about an hour we were in a car and headed to Shumen...

Traveling Music

Posted by Susan Ridgway on

Does your family take a vacation?  What does that look like? Our vacations seems to have some notable similarities from year to year. Yesterday, our family took a one day trip to Kansas City.  It was not actually a vacation because it was lacking fun activities, days in a hotel with a...
