The God of Apple Juice and Spilled Milk

As an author of over three hundred articles and devotionals about parenting and about God’s presence in our lives, I decided to expand these ideas into a devotional and study guide of practical insights for parents.

We all know parenting can be an eye-opening experience. I believe we can learn much about God as a parent as we compare our experiences as earthly parents to God’s leading and teaching of His children. The similarities give insight into God’s parental nature. In Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV) Jesus says, “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Of course God is a perfect parent, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
We learn much about God through our love for our children. This free devotional and accompanying study guide offers practical insights. The God of Apple Juice and Spilled Milk’s explore this idea together!

National Park Art

In the 1870’s the Hudson River School painters made the general public aware of the beauty of the lesser known western landscape. When Yellowstone became our first National Park, Old Faithful became famous as a tourist site.

Artists still play an important part in historical representation of the changes in the parks over time. When a rock slips or falls, it forever alters the view. Paintings that capture a view before a change archive history of the scene before it was altered. When a rock slid from making a “table” at Mather Point, it forever changed the view.

Aside from the historical significance, national park art also lives on as memories for those who enjoyed amazing vacations at these locations. Though millions of photographs are snapped, there is nothing like an original painting of a favorite scene to look at each day.

Why DO We Bond with Animals?

I’m convinced that one of God’s special gifts to us is animals. Many of us have had a dog, cat, horse or one of many other pets that loved us and saw us through hard times. If you have a dog that cheers you up when you come home you know what I mean. We once had a red heeler that was constantly beside me. It hurt my feelings on the rare occasions she wasn’t beside me. Usually, it was because she had business to attend to in the yard.

Stroking a purring cat who’s nestled on your shoulder is soothing (when she’s not stepping on the keys of the computer.) The sound of contentment she makes rubs off on me.

Most of us have heard of horse therapy. A long ride can be nearly as relaxing as a day lolling at the beach. Horses have beautiful soulful eyes that reach into my heart. The exercise is beneficial and it’s mentally challenging to teach them what you want them to do.

I can’t imagine a world without the animal friends that enrich our lives. Can you? What is you favorite pet species?
