The ‘yes’ and the ‘no’

February 28, 2011 Rhonda Schrock God's promisesMultitude Mondaypraying yes and no

Odd, isn’t it, a prayer that would go like that?  Yes and no?  Perhaps.  But that’s how this mother has been praying lately. If I had to encapsulate the last 16 months, it could be summed up as “The Year of Battle.”  It’s also been “The Year of Waiting.”  And in a peculiar way, precisely […]

Are you hungry?

February 24, 2011 Rhonda Schrock God's hearthungry for Jesusquestions

Bending over a warm mug full of “curly noodles” at lunch yesterday, he says it.  We’ve offered up prayers, thanking our friend Jesus for the lunch and asking Him to bless the ones we love. Looking down at his tummy, he pulls his warm, red sweatshirt out and says, “Jesus, are you hungry?”  He pauses, listening, and then […]

Breathe in, breathe out

February 23, 2011 Rhonda Schrock breathe inbreathe outextraordinary momentsgracetimeWalk with Him Wednesday

I forget, as the minutes tick past, caught up in the reality of my here-and-now.  Waiting, praying, longing for relief that has not yet come. I forget, reaching forward, hoping for what is down the road, wriggling impatiently as I sit in my chair, typing, day after day after day.  It’s hard, this enforced sitting still, […]

Country music full of pain, pathos

February 22, 2011 Rhonda Schrock 02/21/11 Goshen News column

Note:  This column was published in the 02/21/11 edition of The Goshen News.  Sometimes, I serve up meat and potatoes here.  Today, you get dessert – graham cracker fluff, if you will, with a goofy take on country music and all its pathos.  I had fun with it and hope you will, too. “It Ain’t […]

He is lavish with Himself

Gradually, quietly it happened.  Not a conscious thought, perhaps, but an undefined, subtle feeling like a vapor sifting through a crack in the door.
